Introduction to Member365 AMS Software:

Member365 is an all-in-one membership management platform designed specifically for organizations to grow membership, automate common data-driven tasks and strengthen member engagement. Per Member365, their AMS eliminates the need to juggle multiple web tools by providing an all-in-one management dashboard that centralizes all contact data. With Member365, they evangelize that there is no need to dig through and merge reporting from several data sources, or rely on spreadsheets to manage critical business processes.

Purpose Statement from Member365: 

Member365 covers everything a small nonprofit association may need. It automatically manages new membership applications and renewal workflows. They created their solution to assist membership based organizations with processing payments and providing an easy method for applicants to apply for membership and existing members to renew their membership with an organization.

The Member365 system was designed to integrate into any existing website with ease. They have accomplished this by creating a series of scripts that are simply placed on the appropriate webpage that will display the content utilized by your members.

The executives have the mentality and development road map in order to be a “set & forget it” solution. In other words, they have purposely designed workflow and rules automation so that a staff members (or volunteer) will never have to chase members down for payment of any type: dues, events, & orders. With Member365, everything is centralized through one dashboard saving small associations time and money.

Member365 provides real-time reporting of your data too. After review, you will see that it easily provides you with a complete snapshot of your membership population– from active, lapsed to archived members. They aspire to provide association executives with a way to always know where your organization stands. Further, they want you to be able to build custom reports with ease and filter members on a wide number of demographic data points based on your key performance indicators.

Member365 has been designed to provide all the tools required for you to run your day-to-day operation without involving an expensive service desk.
