Challenges at membership organizations

Complex membership models

Membership organizations have diverse membership models with many variables. Think: different subscriptions, for individuals or companies, multiple options payment periods (monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual), calendar year or continuous year, effective immediately or 1st of the following month, free months, pro rata, discounts, members in VAT or exempt. How well can complex membership models be implemented? Do you choose to have staff perform manual work or costly custom work that must be developed and maintained?

Lack of 360-degree member view

Membership organizations have many different systems and applications. Think: membership administration, financial, event/course software, education & accreditation, survey tooling, marketing, customer/led service, project administration, website, portal, etc. Data is fragmented and causes 360 degree member view to be lacking. If 360 degree member view does exist, it takes a lot of manual work or developing and maintaining (expensive) custom interfaces. 360 degree member-image is essential for being able to provide good service.

Varied relationship and membership management

A traditional system stores one contact person. How do you store a person who works as a manager at company A, owns company B and is also a lecturer at university C? Suppose that as a manager at company A he also sits on a board as chairman or is in a department from his teaching role at university C? Once you communicate with the person, you do want the communication to be recorded at the right level. These are complex structures typical of associations and membership organizations.

Invoicing & receivables management

Sending bulk invoices can be a time-consuming job. We see that today a lot of checking is still done by hand. Among other things due to complex membership models. In many cases, a financial system is responsible for sending bulk invoices. With a few thousand invoices this often goes well, but does it still run smoothly with many tens or even hundreds of thousands of invoices?

A member's payment status is visible in the financial system. However, member administration and member services in most cases work in a CRM system that does not contain this data. Do they then manage to help the member quickly and adequately with financial questions?

Processing events and courses

One association organizes a large event with several (break-out) sessions in one day, another holds courses spread over several days, and some provide in-company training. Each type has its own dynamics and requirements of the system. For example, the differences in billing and payment. Does the participant pay himself or his organization, collective invoicing for participants of the same organization or one invoice for the company itself? How do you handle applying member discount to the invoice? For example: member basic is 10% discount and member premium is 20% discount. Problem is that this information is not captured in an event system. Unless you manually process data or develop costly custom interfaces.

Personalized marketing

Segmenting target groups is usually done in a CRM system. Because of the fragmented data in different systems (see: Lack of 360-degree member view), it is not easy to target a specific segment. For example: members who have Premium membership or members whose registration/accreditation expires in six months. Creating a personalized newsletter is then impossible and thus you miss the opportunity to create member engagement.

These are examples of challenges we hear daily from our clients and from the industry. With 9altitudes, 9A Membership Management has developed a standard solution on the solid Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform. We would be happy to tell you more about it.
