Choose the features you need at a price that fits
The membership Management Module is available in 3 out of 4 FundRaiser Software levels, excepting only the entry-level FundRaiser Basic. Which of the others (Spark, Select, or Professional) you choose amy depend on a combination of price and features available. As the official "Tour Guide" for our online tours of the software, I always recommend starting at the least expensive level that has the features you absolutely must have, and working up from there in the future. Sasha's recent blog does a great job painting the general picture of what the Membership Module can help you do, but in this installment, I'll explain the three versions that can manage memberships, starting with the least expensive and ending with the most versatile. For a quick view, you can visit the comparison chart found here.
It's scorching hot here in the Southwest (training office is in Arizona), and the monsoon rains just haven't been as heavy or as often as we'd like to cool things down or build the water table up. This is the time of the year when many of us become lethargic and just don't want to do much more than sit and think. And I was thinking of the impending deadline most all of our users have in the near future. It's just around the corner: the deadline for getting the best upgrade pricing for Client / Server. And some folks may be wondering how much change this will make in their use of the program. Most of us are used to routines in entering data, creating reports, sending thank you letters, and so on, and ANY change can be a bit intimidating.
How much will you need to re-learn once you've upgraded to the Client / Server version?
For those of you who haven’t spent much time on the phone with me while unraveling one of the many mysteries FundRaiser may present us, I’m an old-fashioned girl. I cook most everything from scratch, make cheese, and sew some of my own clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I like electricity and indoor plumbing as much as the next girl, but I feel strongly that technology should be a helper, not the sole reason for doing something.
