Nimble AMS new release features a donation microsite, Community Brands learning management integration and much more!
Welcome to our Summer release of Nimble AMS. Not only do we have some exciting new features coming out in our Summer ’19 release, it’s also our 22nd seasonal release of Nimble AMS! We are excited to celebrate this great milestone with new tools to help grow your association.
Here’s what’s changed, what’s improved, and what you can look forward to in the latest release.
Cross-Sell will help you sell more and increase member engagement
Sell more easily with Cross-Sell functionality that will help increase revenue and member engagement by allowing associations to suggest related products and services for their constituents to buy. Organizations have several categories of products and services the user can purchase through Community Hub. You can create and manage customizable tags on the product records, events, and membership type, increasing personalization by configuring Cross-Sell according to user profiles. When the user is browsing through Community Hub to purchase a product or service, it provides an opportunity for the organization to cross sell other products and services that might be of the person’s interest.
Hosted Payment Forms to improve PCI compliance and enhance user experience
Easy to enable and use, Hosted Payment Forms allows associations to reduce their PCI liability. The credit card data is entered by Staff users and Community Hub users on the payment forms securely hosted by BluePay. This provides a higher level of security and ensures credit card data never touches Nimble AMS system infrastructure. Using Bluepay Hosted Payment Forms makes PCI compliance much easier than before, as the credit card data never touches the system and is directly passed to and handled by BluePay. BluePay provides an extensive collection of out-of-the-box features that drive efficiency, based on how you run your association. You can be assured your payments will be protected by industry-leading security. The experience is seamless, with technology that’s a natural part of Nimble AMS and the convenience of working with a world-class payment gateway.
Two-Factor Authentication protects your organization’s security
Two-Factor Authentication is the most effective way to protect your organization’s user accounts, with minimal configuration needed. As a Nimble AMS admin, enhance your org’s security by requiring a second level of authentication for every user login. You can also require Two-Factor Authentication, which is triggered by criteria for users, such as attempting to view reports or access a connected app. Two types of Two-Factor Authentication are available. Service-based, also known as device activation, is automatically enabled for all orgs. With policy-based authentication, admins enable policy-based Two-Factor Authentication. You can set policies that require a second level of authentication for every login. Set permissions for logins through the API (for developers and client applications), or for access to specific features. It’s a great tool for administrators to protect org user accounts.
Community Brands LMS Integration means no need to remember multiple passwords or go outside of the AMS
Learn any place, any time, and in a variety of formats with our learning management software (LMS) solutions Crowd Wisdom and Freestone. Our release allows single sign-on for the association management system (AMS) and LMS portals. Users can purchase self-paced LMS product/courses through the AMS portal and immediately consume the course in the LMS after purchasing. Any updates to user data sync seamlessly across both systems.
Donation Microsites quickly set up through point-and-click
We are packaging Donation Microsite templates to demonstrate the power of Lightning Community Builder for associations, making content management an easy point-and-click task. Typically, these types of Donation Microsites are set up to help organizations run donation or fund collection campaigns where constituents can view all the details of a given donation in a standalone site. By creating standalone sites, you can easily monitor fundraising efforts for specific campaigns and promote your association. Our sample/starter microsite will allow associations to stand up a Donation Microsite with ease.
In conclusion, the Nimble AMS Summer ’19 release includes exciting new features to assist you in growing your organization through new selling and payment options, as well as improved security tooling and fundraising capabilities.
