Running any association or nonprofit community is challenging due to a great amount of administrative routine. However, you are not alone with this problem as there are dozens of specialized membership systems promising to turn any management activity into an easy thing.
Membership management software is an all-in-one solution that can be used to store, organize and use your membership data to its fullest potential. It is also called Association Management Software (AMS), Community Management Software, Club Membership Software, Software for Nonprofits, etc.
Such systems are often available as Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions under subscription fees. All of them promise to remove administrative tasks such as tracking membership dues, sending out emails, monitoring event registrations, reporting, automating the tasks that take up time and resources, and much more.
Sounds promising, but are they really so all-embracing and powerful as they claim?
