North Carolina State Firemen’s Association Selects iMIS Software to Support Its Growing
Organization to Consolidate Eight Databases into Single, Flexible,
Alexandria, VA (September 23, 2010) - Advanced
Solutions International (ASI), the largest, privately-owned global
provider of software for member- and donor-based non-profits, today
announced that the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association (NCSFA)
has selected iMIS to support its growing
membership, which currently has more than 52,000 constituents.
The NCSFA previously had eight different databases in place to house
the last eight years worth of data, but will be consolidating those into
ASI’s single solution. iMIS will enable the
organization’s staff to more efficiently manage department rosters,
dues, insurance, events, certifications, e-mail marketing, fundraising,
scholarship applications and more—and better serve its members.
The NCSFA's previous association
management system (AMS) was no longer able to accommodate the
organization's growth, and its changing needs and those of its members.
iMIS will provide the flexibility and
scalability, as well as the industry-specific tools, the NCSFA requires
to fulfill its mission of supporting its members.
The organization also required an upgradeable,
web-based software solution, so that it can offer more services to its
members and give them increased access to programs online. iMIS will significantly reduce the administrative
workload of the four-person staff that manages the member benefits for
the more than 52,000 firefighters across North Carolina.
"We spent the better part of two
years looking for a new AMS for our organization," said Kris Wyatt,
program coordinator for the NCSFA. "iMIS met
all of our needs and then some. We are excited about doing away with our
labor-intensive, disparate database systems, and implementing a
comprehensive software solution that will allow us to refocus our
attention on our growth and our members’ needs."
"ASI is honored to have been selected by NCSFA, and
believe that iMIS will streamline the
organization's operations and support its growing membership," said Bob
Alves, chairman and CEO of ASI. "We very much value NCSFA as a 'customer
for life' and look forward to seeing the great things it achieves with
