ASI Sponsors Asia Pacific iMIS User Conference in Brisbane and Names the 2018 ‘Great Things Award’ Winners


Melbourne, VIC (15 October 2018) — Advanced Solutions International (ASI), a leading global provider of software and services for associations and not-for-profits, today announced it was a major sponsor of NiUG Asia Pacific’s 12th annual Discovery Conference held in Brisbane on 12th – 14th September.  

ASI is the provider of the iMIS Engagement Management System (EMS)™ and has served more than 4,000 clients, 100 partners and millions of users worldwide.  The iMIS users group — NiUG International —is the largest independent, international users group in the not-for-profit software industry.

The three-day NiUG Asia Pacific Discovery Conference was held at Brisbane’s Hotel Grand Chancellor and offered more than 40 educational sessions and workshops, training classes, demonstrations, an exhibitor showcase, and networking events in what was the largest gathering of the iMIS community in the region.

Speakers at the 2018 conference included local and international partners from the greater iMIS community as well as Association and Not-for-Profit leaders.  ASI staff presented on the latest iMIS feature updates, including autopay, IQA and dashboards, process automation, events, communications, and the RiSE website development platform.  They also shared insights on PCI compliance, data protection, and findings from the company’s 2018 global benchmark report on membership and fundraising performance. The conference also included a dedicated one-day stream for users of iMIS Cloud Professional – the cloud-based iMIS editions specifically designed for smaller not-for-profits.  

“Once again, NiUG Asia Pacific presented a spot-on educational program and exceptional opportunities for iMIS users to network and learn from each other.  This conference is where ASI learns as well — the feedback we receive from clients of all types and sizes is invaluable.  Congratulations to NiUG Asia Pacific on another outstanding event,” said Colin Bryant, ASI Asia-Pacific Country Manager.
