KINGWOOD — On Aug. 1, the Preston County Chamber of Commerce began using Chamber Master, a member-management software designed to manage all of the day-to-day operations of the chamber.
The member management system is a sophisticated database with an easy to use interface that will allow the chamber to track and summarize all relevant data regarding members.
“We will be able to manage our members’ activity, billing and contact information in one central location, and this software will integrate with our existing website, updating our online directory, event calendar and key pages,” Chamber Director Kristy Ash said in a news release. “It will also allow us to generate accurate reports so that we can measure, explore and communicate our organization’s performance.”
The integrated invoicing process ensures no double entry and saves time. The chamber will be able to run batch invoices, statements and letters, eliminating manual processes. Invoices can be sent electronically, allowing members to view and pay online with credit or debit card.
The Chamber Master events module is designed to help navigate every aspect of the event process, from invitations to tracking registrations to creating invoices.
“We will be able to promote our members with ease,” Ash said. Every member has its own listing. Members are encouraged to log in and update their information, which automatically updates the chamber’s database and online listings at the same time.
Management of database information is done through the Chamber Master member Information center, which is password protected and accessed through member login of the website.
Once logged in, members have access to many features, including updating business and personal profile information, adding categories to your business directory listing·, advertising with hot deals and member to member offers, and posting job openings.
