The Nimble AMS team will be giving demos all day. Stop by, sit by our campfire, grab a smore, and take in the natural beauty of world class AMS features paired with Salesforce, the worlds leading CRM.
We can't wait to see you there!
Do you ever feel like you are trapped in a time warp with some of the technology used in your association? If so, it is very possible that your Association Management System (AMS) is a Dinosaur.
Merriam-Webster definition of a dinosaur “A person or thing that is outdated or has become obsolete because of failure to adapt to changing circumstances.”
Having worked in association technology for over 20 years I am a bit of a dinosaur in my own right. Here are my top 7 warning signs that your AMS may be a dinosaur:
If your AMS exhibits any of the above (and especially if it exhibits more than one) you may need to dismount that dead horse and evolve into something more Nimble!
You can say many things about about your data. Your data is very valuable. You get great statistics from your data. You try very hard to keep your data up to date. The reports and lists you run on your data help keep your association running. But can you say that your association's data is sexy? You probably never heard data and sexy in the same sentence. The concept may even make you fall out of your chair laughing.
Nimble AMS wants to change that. We want to revolutionize how you and your staff view your association's most valuable resource … your data.
Old style association management systems (AMS) display loads and loads of text based data. From the AMS application to the various reports the staff use, it is just a lot of text to read. It is all great information but there is no flash. No pop! Old style AMS' don't display your data in a sexy way. To be truthful, they just don't make it easy to see the important and critical information.
That all changes with Nimble AMS and Salesforce. The Salesforce platform lets us translate bland and boring data into visual images and graphics that are much more meaningful and powerful. Gone are the days of displaying boring text data that is difficult to understand. Now you can display images that help your staff quickly see, process and understand your data like never before.
Here are some great examples of what you can do in Nimble AMS.
Convert member type and thru date to a simple color coded flag. If they have a green flag … they are a member!
Convert valuable engagement data to a simple star image. The more stars a member has … the more engaged they are!
These images are actually fields in the database, so they can also be displayed in any of your reports and lists. Talk about a powerful reporting tool!
As you can guess, the options for these images and graphics are endless. You can let your imagination go wild and come up with some great graphics to represent the association's data. A little creativity and configuration can turn your stale and tired old AMS into something current, hip and you guessed it … Sexy! Can your AMS do that?
The other night I was reading tweets about Dreamforce (#DF12) and started to think about all of the different reasons why I can't wait to go. Before I knew it, all of my fingers were full and I had my top 10 reasons. Here are a few thoughts I had on the possible work and personal reasons for attending the legendary Dreamsforce conference this September.

It may sound strange, but there are days that I feel like a superhero because of Salesforce. POW! KABOOM! BAM! I think everyone would like an AMS (association management system) that made them feel like Batman or Wonder Woman.
Nimble AMS fueled by Salesforce gives you that BANG! These KAPOW features can be huge in scale like the game changing Chatter (if you have not heard of Chatter, check it out now ... it will make your cape go aflutter). Or they can be small things that still deliver the BOOM. Here are a few simple features in Salesforce that I recently showed an association that deliver some ZOINK. These features can change a normal staff person into an association staff superhero.
These are just three simple WHAMM features I showed association staff recently. Nimble AMS and Salesforce have tons of these in their utility belt. Maybe you can find your inner superhero by using Nimble AMS and Salesforce! Put some KAPOW in how you are managing your members.
