7 Signs It Is Time To Upgrade Your AMS: #2

Your current AMS is a classic example of a software tool that’s probably outlived its usefulness. Not because AMS solutions are in decline or less relevant to the success of today's leading associations.  Rather, some solutions overpromise and underdeliver, update too slowly (not at all...hope you are not part of that community) or were built on code that is decades old. The reason doesn't matter...there comes a time when you’ve got to cut the cord and stop making excuses.  In other words, ditch your old AMS and find a new one.

Members have become more demanding than ever before when it comes to customer experience. The bar has been set high by Amazon and many of the technologies they interact with on a daily basis. That’s why you need a AMS solution that can keep up with demand and enable your staff to offer the best possible level of service to your members.

If your current AMS implementation shows any of the following signs, then it’s definitely time for a change:

#2. It’s Expensive to Maintain

Maintaining a proprietary, in-house AMS system or a dated premise-based AMS (Association Management Solution) or membership management platform is both expensive and time-consuming. Worse still, the high costs involved can increase exponentially along with demand, especially if you find yourself having to upgrade your hardware to add more compute power or data storage capacity or meet the ever-increasing demands of your members.

One of the key advantages of migrating to a cloud-based AMS system is that you can do away with many of the expenses of an on-premises solution for a single predictable annual (or monthly) cost. 

Cloud-based AMS, like Impexium, typically charge an annual subscription fee based on the number of users as well as storage and computing needs, which also allows you to scale back and forth as demand requires.

No AMS can please everybody, but if you’re running into one or more of these challenges, the cost of not making a change may well be more than the investment required to make a strategic technology upgrade.
