Your members are asking for it

There is no doubt that customers expect more in the digital age. By investing in the right system, you can provide members with added value and help them to access self-service.

Your operating costs need lowering

A lot of smaller businesses and not for profits don’t have a full grasp of their operating costs. By getting an understanding of yours, you can see where savings can be made with judicious software investments.

Your admin team is experiencing difficulty

Too much paper, filing that is getting out of control and a general difficulty keeping on top of things. These are all symptoms of an over-burdened admin team and a struggling offline membership system!

You are spending too much on administrative resource

An overly large administration team can be expensive and divert resources away from higher value tasks. The right systems will help to streamline the admin function and minimise wasted time. If you are ready to assess the alternatives, why not visit OFEC for a membership management system that will work for your business.

You can’t access membership MI when you need it

MI is vital for a successful business, so if you can’t access data that tells you how your membership is performing and whether your operational and financial targets are being met, there is room for improvement. A digital system will help you to achieve this, particularly where integration with other systems is allowed.

You are already investing in digital technology

If you are already building a website, then it makes sense to enable it with membership self-service and communication functions for your membership base, to offer them something of genuine value.

You are looking to evolve your membership offer further

A great online membership system can be a great sales point for potential and existing members, who will feel in control of their subscriptions and member experience.

In all these instances, a careful investment in the right membership management system will help you to retain, and gain, competitive advantage in your membership field.
