McLEAN, Va. — Responding to the increasing number of associations that are moving toward best-in-class software solutions and away from the traditional all-in-one association management software (AMS) approach, Naylor is excited to expand its membership management offerings by introducing the Naylor Member Data Platform (MDP), powered by Wicket.
The Naylor MDP is a centralized system that tracks members’ and organizations’ transactions by integrating an association’s familiar software tools in one data hub, allowing the MDP to become the platform of record for all association data. The Naylor MDP connects to best-in-class software through open APIs and a single sign-on engine.
“Associations have unique needs. The Naylor MDP provides a solution that is simple but also powerful when it comes to tracking members, organizational partners and transactional touchpoints while aggregating all of an association’s data in one centralized repository,” said Naylor’s Vice President for Software Solutions Tom Aley. “The Naylor MDP will allow associations the opportunity to be acutely in tune with how people are engaged within their association’s digital ecosystem. The platform enables insights such as anticipated retention issues, projected event registrations, data-driven product and service recommendations, and more.”
Naylor brings its member data platform to market through an exclusive North American distribution agreement with Wicket. Built to remove data silos and with the goal of helping associations better measure engagement through a persistent member record, the Wicket platform leverages cloud-based technology to minimize security risks while allowing for continuous development, a flexible data structure and deployment of new services and updates.
“We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with Naylor to help associations reach their data management goals and fulfill their missions. From day one, we set up our member data platform to integrate with best-in-class software through a unique API-first approach, recording all member interactions from connected applications and serving up an outstanding member experience,” said Wicket Co-Founder & CEO Jeff Horne. “When you can easily manage your members and their interactions with you, you can focus more on your mission and enhancing the member experience – which is what associations are about at their core.”
The Naylor AMS remains a great product for those associations that seek an all-in-one solution for their data management needs. The existing Naylor AMS takes a traditional AMS approach with a core member database and a series of integrated modules, including everything from events and conferences to finance and eCommerce. The Naylor AMS has historically catered to small- to mid-sized associations. Naylor’s new MDP offering is better suited for larger associations and those that are implementing an integrated best-in-class software approach.
Naylor’s Member Data Platform, powered by Wicket, will be available in December 2019. Visit Naylor’s booth (#621) at this month’s Technology Exploration Conference in Washington, DC, or visit Naylor.com/MDP for more details and a full list of available software integrations on this platform.
