ClearVantage Consolidates Multiple Databases for EdTA
"In evaluating the many association management software (AMS) vendors out there, we knew that we needed a proven, robust AMS solution that would be able to handle the large amount of information we deal with on a daily basis," states Sandy Morgan, EdTA's Manager of Information Technology. "Too much of our data was scattered throughout various databases of information. As a result, inefficiencies in our flow of business quickly became apparent. For example, our prior system forced us to create many external processes in order to access even the simplest of member information—leading to the creation of duplicate member records, a time consuming internal review process, and a tedious crosschecking procedure by different departments in our organization. With ClearVantage 7, we are now much more streamlined and efficient."
By organizing all of the association's information into one integrated, centralized source, ClearVantage increases data integrity across every level of EdTA's organization. "One of the many things that has satisfied us the most about ClearVantage," continues Morgan, "is its capacity to seamlessly create lists of information and extract data based on pre-selected criteria—without the need of intensive cross-checking by staff. In addition, ClearVantage allows us to delegate administrative rights and responsibilities, giving specified users the ability to access the information they need in order to quickly and efficiently accomplish the task that they are assigned. In other words, the tedious internal review of information amongst EdTA's departments [that we were once accustomed to] is eliminated, permitting each department to focus on what it does best."
