ChamberMaster is a game changer

2019-07-31

It's been a big deal for our small Chamber of Commerce to have such a robust software platform to manage all our events, memberships and activities. We've contacted customer support so many times - and each time they have been very responsive to our needs.

Pros

Integration with website management of data, events, and revenue in one platform member communications abilities Customer support

Cons

Project management functionality is not good

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.

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.

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.

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

Every Chamber of Commerce Should be Using GrowthZone/Chambermaster Software

2019-07-30

When contacted by sister chambers who are looking for improvement recommendations, my very first recommendation is always "invest in GrowthZone and Chambermaster"!

Pros

The billing, member management, and reporting aspects make managing our chamber's day-to-day activities incredibly simple.

Cons

There are only minor recommendations for improving this software from time to time but with constant updates and improvements from the Growthzone team, I can be sure that any recommendations will be addressed and all efforts possible will be made to implement those improvements.

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

You should be able to choose and customize the data you send to your members - consistency isn't always king.

Overall the software has been effective and provides efficient communications and management for our staff.

From hosting our website, management of our customized membership database, communication tools, event management, integrated payment process functions, and real time change functions for our staff and members, Chambermaster is an efficient and powerful customer service tool for our membership organization.

Cons

The need and cost to update our website is currently a concern.

ChamberMaster GrowthZone

2019-08-06

The things that were once accomplished by spreadsheets are now integrated with calendars and social media and available through the Internet.

Pros

Having so much information about your members and multiple ways to contact and interact with them through the software has made a huge difference that has been noted by our members.

Cons

I wish it was a little more adaptable within the templates.

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.

It has some versatility! It functions well and does what we need it to.

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!
