GrowthZone Software


 

GrowthZone, formerly MemberZone, is an online platform designed to help non-profits manage their members, fundraising, marketing, donors and volunteers. 

An online application form facilitates member signup, and the data from that form feeds directly into other modules of the system, including billing. The billing application offers features such as batch invoicing. Engagement reporting allows non-profits to monitor members that are most engaged or most at risk. The system also allows users to build their own custom reports.

GrowthZone is suitable for associations of all sizes. It is accessible from a variety of platforms including Mac, iPad and PC. It is capable of synchronization with third-party vendors to cut down on double entry into multiple disparate systems.

The mobile apps allow for scanning in of important information like business cards and also lets you process payments.

Pros

This is ideal for all non-profit needs. Donor management, advertising or marketing, even keeping track of fundraising goals.

Cons

I have no cons with this software. I think it's an excellent tool for anyone to use. It's comparable with many other database management software, but I really like the interface and experience.

This will save me time and be able to focus more on getting new members

Pros

Reports, the ability for people to save credit card info safely. The unique registration form and simple ease of use for members. The info hub for members to communicate.

Cons

Still doesn’t sort by last name. Having some delays in the initial set up that I though would have already been addressed by previous clients.

Overall - great product, looking forward to working in it. I'm sure whatever we're experiencing now is just a matter of learning about one-another, them about how we work, and us with how to properly use the functions they've provided outside of what we're used to.

Pros

easy to cross-reference areas of database, smart CMS is nice and takes some getting used to, but works much better than the past product.

Cons

have encountered more than a couple hurdles in the start up process, transition was not as smooth as we thought, nor is the QBs integration as simple and easy as we initially thought.

Pros

The customer service and support teams are very helpful. The product seems like it will provide great value and ease of use - once I am fully trained and used to it.

Cons

The setup, implementation, and training require some time. A bit labour intensive in the early stages to integrate existing data, but should get easier after setup.

The pre-sales team are super. I provided a list of requirements and they tailored a demo to my requirements further illustrating the depth of the features and flexibility/ease of managing the membership.

Pros

Supports all our requirements for membership management keyed to a ID number, allows non-electronic membership (some of our members don't have email), and tracks volunteer hours (which we apply for future year membership discount)

Cons

Nothing to state yet, just in an evaluation mode at the moment. No known lock-ins to use all the modules of functionality we need to run the association

A good face-to-the-customer - GZ makes our Trade Association look good!

Pros

After online education and some hands-on experience I enjoy utilizing this software. There is so much GZ offers - every day I learn something new. I am more engaged in website updates now more than ever, group emails are simple, and I enjoy getting creative with reports. Customer service is stellar.

We came out of the dark ages into current technology with a little bit of an investment but well worth it in the long run! Stay away from overpriced solutions. GrowthZone can do the same or more at reasonable rates.

Pros

Easy to learn. Flexible and forgiving. Easy set up and maintenance. Great web platform will make a rookie into a web master in no time. I'd recommend this for small to medium trade or professional associations in a heartbeat.

Cons

Some things are fixed and can't be customized. The member types are one of them but you can figure out a workaround for your particular situation.

I like the calendar that syncs with our website to tell members of our upcoming events. It is easy to input descriptions and details. I like that it's an easy template and that you can copy past events.

Cons

GrowthZone does not recognize our affiliate members. These are members underneath our associate or builder members. They are still part of our association and have to be manually added to all reports.

Took my excel spread sheet membership list and made it look professional on our website.

Pros

Nicely laid out, easy access and workability within the system. It has great options, job postings, advertising and accounting access

Cons

Lack of hands on training, I am not good with the tutorials that you have to watch. I would prefer to have a local seminar where I can learn hands on.

I mostly use the program to manage our membership and representative directory, calendar events and registration, receive online payments. I like the calendar and online registration feature. I am learning to use the mailing/group lists, but wish it was a little more intuitive. I would like to have the option to add representatives by their titles or by a specific field. The customer service is great! They are very knowledgeable and quick to respond. Thanks!

Pros

Calendar, events registration, online payment option, directory, low maintenance database (MemberZone takes care of all the maintenance, yea!)

Cons

Not at intuitive for group/mailing lists. I would like a little more options for customizing fields.

My experience only includes creating events that youth register online using MemberZone. I have not been aware of any complaints of the families that I work with. I appreciate that MemberZone allows us to use less paper and get quicker responses than if we used traditional paper mail in registrations.

Pros

Online registration for events allows for immediate numbers and information when planning for events/

Cons

Navigation through event creation could be more user-friendly.

I have overall happy with our experience with MemberZone. The new Report Builder has been a lifesaver to us. My only complaint is that I wish it worked better for Associations with member couples instead of Chambers. Many of the features don't apply to us and we have to do figure out a way to make it work for us.

Pros

Custom Reports

Cons

Not designed for Associations with members.

I am the new office assistant here within my organization and new to the Memberzone software. I am a fast learner and feel that I have been able to adapt to Memberzone and all of it's features pretty well. I know there's still a lot to learn with all of the gadgets available through Memberzone, but I will say I am impressed. I am looking forward to learning more of the ins and outs to better my organization and use of the database.
On thing we are trying to push here at our organization is our Member involvement with Memberzone itself. There are a lot of great tools available to our members, it's just a matter of getting them involved.
Shout out to the Memberzone customer support, they are always there to answer and questions and guide me through the site when needed.
