    AGN International – North America Enhances the Member Experience with Social Networking for iMIS

    Association Streamlines Member Communication and Improves Operational Processes by Integrating Community-Building Platform and Member Management Software

    Alexandria, VA (January 5, 2011) - Advanced Solutions International (ASI), the largest, privately-owned global provider of software for member and donor-based non-profits, today announced that Social Networking for iMIS has helped AGN International – North America improve its members’ experiences. The association used the community-building platform, developed by GoLightly, to streamline member communication and improve its operational processes.

    With Social Networking for iMIS, AGN International – North America was able to create and organize all of its member-only content, including webcasts and audio files, in a single, private knowledge bank, so that members can easily find, comment on and share the information. By integrating GoLightly’s software with its member management software system, iMIS, the association also saved significant staff time by eliminating the need to rekey information, freed up IT resources by only managing a single system, and got true 360-degree profiles of its members and their activities.

    Key Facts

    • AGN International – North America’s previously used an expensive yet limited tool to communicate with and supply information to its members. It also found its previous email listserve to be difficult to manage and prone to delivery problems. The association needed a one-stop shop for content for its members, as well as a way to reach out to them using a mass email system directly from iMIS.

    • With Social Networking for iMIS, AGN International – North America was able to automatically upload and archive all of its member-only content, and provide members with easy access to the files. If members don’t have time to go to the knowledge bank, they can send an email using the community-building platform’s listserve functionality and immediately get 10-15 answers back from their peers. The association recently saw more than 50,000 emails be sent through the system in just one month.

    • Along with its limitations, the association’s previous product also had almost no technical support. AGN International – North America has been pleased with the assistance it has received with Social Networking for iMIS; GoLightly has been quick and responsive when attending to the association’s software issues and enhancement suggestions.
