Abila netFORUM Enterprise

netFORUm is generally good for small to medium membership organizations but can definitely pose problems in the amount of data and the reporting tools as the membership grows.

Daxko Operations

Our memberships are up and I credit Daxko for this. The products have been nothing but great for us and the training both on-site and off have been great. They were patient, helpful and really catered to us and how we run our facility. We had to make very little changes to transfer from Trinexum to Daxko - and all were positive changes.

Pros

  • Can store a lot of information. There are many different modules and each module has a lot of spaces for details such as birthday, gender, spouse and children's names, emergency contact information, photos and more.
  • Can be linked to our internal systems. Our awards system is run through our organization's website but the winners are sent to netFORUM so that their records indicate the awards and distinctions they have achieved without us having to manually enter all of these.
  • Can provide a lot of reporting information which is useful for data collection or year-end reporting needs.

  • VERY user-friendly. We have staff from all generations who were able to transition quickly and seamlessly into Daxko Operations.
  • The other side of Daxko - the member portal - has increased our memberships & our program registrations.
  • The combinations of all of the Daxko programs together have allowed us to reach more members in less time for simple notifications like a practice is canceled to major notifications such as building closures due to weather.

Cons

  • The queries and reports are not user-friendly. One really needs to understand the search terminology to run queries and reports.
  • There is no way to prevent duplicates so if someone enters an updated address for a member but creates a new record instead of updating the current record, there are now two records for that person which makes some of the data difficult to sift through.
  • Linking members to their organization is difficult because if someone enters an organization slightly differently from the way it is registered in netFORUM, the person will not be linked to the organization and the reports that say how many members come from a specific institution is now inaccurate.

  • I have given suggestions to Daxko and they are very receptive to my comments & agree with me. On Engage you can "task" to individual people but, can only "task" a department on an initiative - I'd like the option to task my entire department so whoever has contact with that member first can implement the task. (Side note: the majority of my staff is part-time and do not work consecutive days - this is part an in-house operations issue which is why I made the suggestion for small non-profits such as ourselves)

Alternatives Considered

netFORUM is better at data collection and support for the price.

Reports are accurate, it is easier to use and the member portal actually works - we had major online program registrations with Trinexum.

Return on Investment

  • Easier to see expiring or expired memberships and initiate the renewal process
  • Streamlining of data increases employee efficiency
  • Difficulty in using it to its full potential means that the total possible ROI may not be achieved

  • Our memberships are up.
  • Our program registrations are up.
  • We are saving money on scan key cards for members because members can add their bar-codes to the app.
