Global Health Council Selects Aptify's Association Management Software
Date:4/9/2008

WASHINGTON, April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Health Council, the world's largest membership alliance dedicated to saving lives by improving health throughout the world, will implement Aptify's Association Management System in their Washington, D.C. and Vermont locations.

Organizational challenges prompted the Global Health Council's decision to implement a new software system to manage their core business operations. The challenges included varying internal business practices, poor workflow and a lack of accurate business information. As a result, the organization decided to review all solutions in the marketplace and after an extensive due diligence process, selected Aptify as the best solution for its needs.

"The existing system was not user-friendly," says Global Health Council Vice President of Operations Don Beddie. "Many of the users had to develop manual Excel spreadsheets so that they could complete their work, which resulted in 'islands of information' and was very unproductive." Additionally, the previous system had not followed a good implementation process and did not meet their evolving needs.

The Council went with a 'best-of-class' approach and narrowed a list of seven vendors down to two and then to one. Aptify offered a completely new look and feel and ensured that the long-term goals of the organization would be met through the flexibility of its industry-leading technology. Beddie says this was essential for user buy-in, as the users disliked the old system. He says, "Anything that resembled the previous solution was just not going to work."

Global Health Council was especially impressed with Aptify's workflow and business process automation architecture. Aptify's system provides users the ability to easily configure the software, including modifying the business process logic, user interface and web pages without any programming. Beddie says, "Aptify's flexible technology fit how we wanted to implement our system, and the company's education, service and support offerings were exactly what we're looking for in a vendor."

The Council will use Aptify's Association Management software to continue to grow their membership. Beddie commented, "The Aptify system will allow us to focus 100 percent on our members. By having a flexible central repository we know where the data is, control the quality and can pull information together from multiple locations."

The organization will also take advantage of improved productivity, as users will no longer have to crunch numbers manually due to Aptify's built in Business Intelligence and Reporting capability. Aptify's e-Business and Fundraising applications will be implemented at the same time as the rest of the system. Beddie says, "Our Fundraising Department has been dying for this type of functionality."

Aptify's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Amith Nagarajan says, "We are pleased to partner with the Global Health Council. Providing the Council with our industry-leading technology will enable rapid change, which is critical to their long-term success. We envision the Global Health Council growing rapidly and improving productivity simultaneously by implementing best practices and adapting to the changing needs of their constituents."

Global Health Council is committed to a successful implementation and has put in place a team of staff members to monitor usage and productivity. Additionally, the organization has an IT manager with extensive knowledge in implementations and (success) measurement. The Council has already started the implementation process and is looking forward to 'going-live' in August 2008.
