The Aptify Blog
The Aptify Blog is an honest and informative collection of articles to help association executives solve their most pressing issues.
If your organization is in the market for a new Association Management System (AMS), or if you’re comparing different membership software systems, the first question you’re asking is, “How much does it cost?” There’s not a lot of information out there about this; I’m sure you’ve noticed that most vendors will want to set up a call with you before they give you any substantial information. The main reason for this is that the answer isn’t cut and dry... It depends.
One of the most important players in your association marketing plan doesn’t have a place in the org chart, doesn’t have an office, and doesn’t even get vacation time. You take this player for granted as long as they assist your marketing efforts. But when they don’t, it’s time to think about a replacement.

If your membership department (and association) needs a new membership management system, you must build a business case that justifies allocating money and staff time to selecting and implementing new membership software.

The biggest difference for IT in trade associations is that they serve a multitude of users—internal staff, affiliate groups, and external members. Defining the user experience and establishing memorable member engagement are now directly in the hands of IT. Associations must establish a high level of competency in delivering reliable and effective services in order to transform into a strategic partner and innovator.
At this year’s Aptify Users Conference, I’m excited to be co-presenting with Debbie Hanger of ASAE on a topic that is a bit of an obsession of mine—accounting automation (hey, we all have our quirks). During this session, we will provide real-world examples of how process automation can enable collaboration, reduce delays, and result in higher quality financial data. It will be a challenge to limit our session to just an hour, as Aptify’s robust development platform offers unlimited opportunities to create powerful data processing workflows.
