Microsoft adds a tremendous amount of awe-inspiring functionality that taps into outside data that works with the AMS. It’s about more than managing renewals and event registrations, it’s about collaborating with members and volunteers and staff to create the best industry practices so member’s business lives improve.
The Total Cost of Ownership is an extremely important factor when selecting new software. We’ve broken down some key differences between Microsoft and Salesforce.
In order to focus on what’s important, Microsoft provides easy to use infrastructure that allows you to comfortably focus on business. The cool thing about Microsoft is you’re already using portions of their ecosystem! From Outlook to Teams to Office 365. Integrating your AMS through Microsoft allows seamless communication between all the tools you’re already using to conduct business wherever you are, on any device you want, at any time you need.
Microsoft Dynamics and Power Apps are the foundations to grow your association on without worrying about technology. Membership relationship management, accounting, finance, budgeting, analytics, and events are all built native and integrated into one platform.
Optimize your association by reducing complexity and eliminating duplication. Microsoft’s infrastructure has built-in tools that allow you to develop processes without developers. There are thousands of templates and connectors to optimize your association and extend your platform to your members and volunteers.
Microsoft’s artificial intelligence looks at email, the AMS, and any connected service to organize which association members need help first. Dynamics 365 unifies relationship data and leverages prebuilt AI/ML to generate actionable insights, such as the best prospects to focus on, the most effective way to connect, the next best action, and the most important relationships. The AI also tracks commitments and sentiment to determine what might be slipping through the cracks. When enabled, Microsoft’s AI can look at your email, your website data, and your community data to show you who is engaged and who might be losing interest.
Microsoft allows teams to collaborate with each other, to more easily get “work” done. Connect your volunteers, sponsors, and staff to empower groups to build the best results.
Associations can collaborate using Microsoft’s Teams so that staff, volunteers, and members make sure productivity is always moving forward.
Microsoft is the standard when it comes to remote work, and document collaboration. Teams integrates with your AMS and email systems so that your knowledge base is always growing, getting better and being managed well.
Microsoft is a world leader in content and knowledge curation, allowing members to subscribe to your knowledge, as well as let them share industry knowledge with each other.
Integrating Teams with your Altai community portal allows members to collaborate and share knowledge with each other like never before.
Office Flow tools also allow associations to integrate outside systems with your AMS giving your members the ability to manage all their business without having to leave your frontend environment. That means, no double keying information or clicking through multiple websites to purchase, register, or confirm any detail.
