Great Management Software for Member-based Organizations

2019-08-13

Onboarding new employees has been super easy with the resources GrowthZone has provided.

Pros

I like the interfacing with email like Constant Contact and Outlook, and I like user friendly platform elements for maintaining memberships and displaying them online.

Cons

The templates are very hard to use if you want to edit them, and there are a lot of features that are not customizable. I wish there were more integrations with Google and business websites not provided/hosted by GrowthZone.

Growthzone Management System Has It All!

2021-03-19

GrowthZone has enabled our organization to effectively manage our database, reporting, event registration, accounting and website.

Pros

The entire process took us about 9 months to design and implement both a management system as well as website.

Cons

I wish GrowthZone would integrate directly with QuickBooks.

The Right Software for Our Needs

2019-07-30

As a membership database, it is easy to navigate and track member engagement.

Pros

This software is versatile, allowing us to use it in a variety of tasks including marketing, data collection, event registration, member communications, and website integration.

Cons

Currently, past member events stack up in our calendar and must be deleted individually.

GrowthZone is a Game Changer

2021-03-19

There's a few features that we'd love to see some improvements in (communications, reporting, and marketing automation).

Pros

The overall integration is fantastic and we love the customer support and the ability for us to submit an idea for improvement and for it to more often that not be put into development or rolled out fairly soon after.

Cons

There are a few newer features that just need a bit more development, mainly revolving around communication analytics. We'd love to use GrowthZone exclusively for our communications, but they just don't have the analytical reports we need.

Continually getting better

2019-07-30

Before using Chambermaster, we didn't have a database. We've saved SO MUCH time being able to automate invoices, schedule eblasts, and track member data.

Pros

They are always improving the software based on user feedback, which we love.

Cons

We have some data that we would like to track that is specific to our Chamber but haven't yet found a way to integrate that data into the reports that are offered.

Could be great with a little work

2021-03-19

We like GZ's ability to give a good view of member activity. I like that when I am on the phone with a member, I can see their engagement, make notes, and create follow up task items.

Pros

It also has a pretty good project management system, though it desperately needs push notifications via email.

Cons

It feels like the database was not developed with a vision and as the software was enhanced and features added, bandaids were placed on the tables to make them work together.

The Biggest Strength of Growth Zone

2021-11-16

Phenomenal experience. They are always willing to listen, help, provide above and beyond to ensure the answer and result is achieved.

Pros

The best feature about GZ is its Customer Service team.

Cons

There should have been more conversations during the conversation phase in order to import correct data fields which GZ reporting runs off of.

User-friendly member management system

2021-03-18

Excellent experience to date - great customer assistance and training modules.

Pros

The database is easy to navigate, member profiles are clear with the ability to add a lot of information, performing tasks within the database is easy.

Cons

There are lots of reports to choose from, but reporting direct from a Member profile would be a great option.

The Great, the good, the bad, and the time consumer

2019-08-06

The customer service has improved greatly over the past couple of years, but the upgrades and interfaces many times come with standard features that are not member/sponsor friendly.

Pros

I like the many features, the reporting, the statistics for the members and the interfacing with our website.

Cons

It does not allow for changes in all set up features of retrieving data such as the e referral component.

We went from Builder Fusion to MemberZone because we wanted the integration of the members section with our web, the additional non-dues revenue sources and the ability to connect QuickBooks.

Pros

design, integration with acctg, ability to have scrolling calendar

Cons

member wms updates and bringing in an import from WMS

We're in the Zone

2017-04-12

I've been a Member Zone user now in two separate organizations, and for even just the small handful of functions that we use, we're finding it very helpful in keeping our billing and receivables, plus our member contacts, very much in order.

Pros

Enjoy the ease in record keeping, filtering reports, and bundling cover letters into emails.

Cons

There's no automatic save in the subpages for each member account. Sometimes when I'm updating one page and need to update another, I switch tabs and forget to save what I just did. Then I have to go back later when I realize my edits didn't save.

Chamber Master

2021-03-18

Overall my experience has been positive. The ease of use is perfect for small and large Chambers.

Pros

It is easy to learn and provides customizable options for your individual needs.

Cons

I wish there were more editing capabilities. Templates are great, but being able to start from scratch and create your own design would be amazing.

Why GrowthZone is my perfect parnter

2021-03-18

We can quickly get answers for our Board through the reports function as well and the dashboard let's us know exactly where we are and what we need to focus on in the next quarter.

Pros

From the internal management to the member benefits, GrowthZone allows us to stand out in our community as their advocate and partner in growing their business.

Cons

There are only a few cons which pertain to technical features for the back-of-the-house users such as not being able to preview blog posts prior to publishing and having different banner size options for our sponsors.

Growing with GrowthZone

2021-11-02

I like the fact I can accept payment, download the invoice, and forward to a Member with ease. I use the Events tab for registrations, Actual Attendance/No-Shows and printing name badges which is essential to my daily job function.

Pros

Up-to-date Contact information on a business/organization is very important in my daily job function, whether dealing with another member or the public.

Cons

The Reports feature can be overwhelming with all the different options available and not sure if you are selecting the right Report that best suits your needs.

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.

Cons

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

Response from GrowthZone


Thanks for your feedback and review. For the record we do have live support via phone or chat. Both of these channels would be faster than email. Our company is built around our heart for great service and keeping our customers happy. Thanks!
