Not-for-profits ready for new software

By

The majority of Australian membership associations plan to adopt commercial management software during 2011.


According to research commissioned by a provider of software to the non-profit sector, a majority of Australia's membership associations will move away from in-house custom software towards commercial alternatives.

Conducted by Lehman Associates for Advanced Solutions International (ASI), the survey found 59% of respondents plan to adopt commercial management software during 2011. The ability to engage and do business with members through their websites and other online applications was a particular issue.

"The Lehman study shows a huge shift toward packaged solutions like [ASI's] iMIS as not-for-profit organisations discover they no longer need to struggle with obsolete in-house solutions and spreadsheets," said Paul Ramsbottom, managing director of ASI Asia-Pacific.

"Those working in the not-for-profit sector find that not only do commercial systems save time and frustration, but they also provide an easy upgrade path, enabling them to take advantage of new and emerging technologies," he added.

More than 280 not-for-profit organisations in the Asia Pacific region use iMIS, including Cancer Council Victoria, National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, The Royal Australian College Of General Practitioners, Surf Life Saving Foundation and The Tax Practitioners Board.

The survey obtained 132 complete responses from 122 organisations.
