Review of ClubExpress

Membership Software 

Introduction:

I am excited to introduce ClubExpress membership software. It is exciting to me because while ClubExpress has been around for 13 plus years, it is actually new to me since I have not had the opportunity to take a deep dive into it’s capabilities. In my mind, it is an exciting new Software-as-a-Service platform designed to help membership driven organizations manage their front office and back office. In fact, they have a purported thousand plus organizations using their platform today. In my review, ClubExpress demonstrated a very capable combination of power, flexibility, and ease-of-use for smaller associations that are run by volunteers or a small, paid staff. Quite impressive!

Brief Summary: 

ClubExpress provides smaller associations (up to 5000 members) with an Internet platform to manage both front-office and back-office operations. ClubExpress combines the association web site with the membership database, secure online member signup, renewals and expiration’s, credit-card processing, membership directory, discussion forums, event calendar and online registration, E-commerce storefront, committees, documents, interests and other modules based on what clubs and associations do. The platform includes a full suite of administration tools to run the organization. There is no programming or HTML experience required; everything is controlled by menus and dialog boxes, and all changes are immediately live. We use state-of-the-art security, there’s no advertising and associations own their data at all times.
