The latest product to be added to the large list of companies serving the association market is Membersuite. Membersuite is headed up by Andrew Ryan, who has a long history of software development in the association market.
I’ve had a chance to see a demo of the new product, and at first blush, I’m very pleased with what I see. The interface is very user friendly, and some of the functionality is very impressive. Membersuite is being offered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product and potential users can sign up for a free 14-day demo.
Some of the features I like include:
“We came to Wes because we were very frustrated with our existing AMS and we wanted to improve our capabilities as soon as practicable. Wes very quickly helped us through a process of identifying our needs, identifying potential vendors, and selecting a new system that we’ll be able to move into very quickly. I especially appreciated Wes’s candor about our processes as well as the systems we were looking at. He was a great resource to have in a period of high anxiety for our organization. I would highly recommend Wes for any similar project.”

“This is the second database implementation we’ve done since I have been at Western Arts Alliance (WAA). The first I did on my own. This time we engaged Wes Trochlil as our database planning consultant. Let me tell you, this process is a whole lot easier having Wes on your team! For a small association like WAA, it’s tempting for board and EDs to question the justification and expense of a database planning consultant. But it’s the small associations that need Effective Database Management the most. Wes strengthened our planning process, clarified our needs requirements, helped us steer around solutions that couldn’t meet our objectives, and saved us money in the long haul.”
