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. 

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 8 , Windows 10

    It has some versatility! It functions well and does what we need it to.

    Pros

    We use it as a CRM, we are not a chamber. The price point is great and it actually works well for this. I love that I can email directly from the program. It keeps track of my emails and lets me set reminders. The reporting is pretty good too.

    Cons

    It can take a while for the customer service to return and resolve emails. I can't call in either for help.

    Pros

    Very easy to pull up members accounts, billing information, general contact information, and the reps information. Making membership mailing labels and membership reports is very easy with this software. I use this software to easily find any membership representative information I need. This software has also made it easy to look up and find a member.

    Cons

    The only con I have for this software would be the new update, i'm so used to the old version it'll take time to learn the updated.

    Pros

    There are so many things you can customize to your needs. Setting up an event is awesome, you can create a guest list, sponsorship goals, attendance goals, you can even create and invitation and send it out all in the same place.

    Cons

    Pros and cons are kind of like a double edged sword with GZ there are so many different ways to do things and so many options that taking the time to learn them all are a must, otherwise you'd be missing out on a lot of great features. Very time consuming.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 with MemberZone is primarily with the setting up events and the registration forms. It is easy to set up an event and have it appear on our website. Love the online registration!

    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.
