New Article Posted – When Using Third-Party Systems, Don’t Leave Valuable Data Behind

I’ve posted a new article on my website.

While most of my clients use centralized association management software (AMS) systems, which are designed to manage all of an association’s data, almost every one of my clients also uses some third-party system in addition to the AMS. Examples of third-party systems include broadcast email systems (e.g., MagnetMail, Constant Contact), event registration systems (e.g., Cvent, regonline), abstract management systems (e.g., Oasis, Precis), and online exhibit management tools (e.g., a2z, mapyourshow).

Managing third-party systems and their data in addition to managing your primary AMS requires extra effort, so why use a third-party system at all?
