I like to give props to association management software (AMS) vendors when they do something really smart. Here’s another great idea from an AMS vendor.
I recently had the opportunity to see an extended demo of DAXKO Connect, DAXKO’s association management software product. During the demo, DAKXO highlighted their “DAXKO ideas” portal (which you can see here.) The DAXKO ideas portal is for DAXKO clients to submit ideas and suggestions for improving the DAXKO products. As I understand it, these suggestions can then be voted on by other DAXKO clients, and DAXKO uses this input to help develop their product.
I think this is a great idea, and one that other AMS vendors should adopt. As I’ve written before, one of the primary benefits of an off-the-shelf AMS product is that product improvement ideas come from many different sources (see point #2 in this article). Many AMS vendors use their users groups or user committees as sources of development, which is great. The DAXKO idea portal is yet another channel for collecting these ideas.
