Overall we are happy with our migration to the rep. It meets our needs as an organization and our members.

Pros
The implementation support from the rep was exceptional. He kept us on task and on our timeline. The event management was a huge improvement to what we had previously.

Cons
The emailing from the system is a little clunky and not many features.

Website, event registration and online directory work together seamlessly.

We've been using Timberlake now for about 3 to 4 years. The website, event registration portals and online membership directory work seamlessly together. Now, no AMS is 100% "everything," but I think Timberlake comes pretty close. And, when issues arise, their customer service and support staff are on it. I would recommend it.

Pros
Combines the things we needed all together in one platform: website, membership directory, "true" online event registrations capable of accepting credit card payments, or members can choose to be invoiced. The system also tracks continuing professional development hours if the certification is linked to the event, though this has been somewhat problematic for whatever weird reason. The Timberlake team/developers continue to investigate. I think all the people at Timberlake are very helpful, friendly, supportive and knowledgeable--and quick to respond if there is an issue.

Cons
Our membership is by firm, rather than individual. And under the firm membership there are usually several individual names listed that are firm personnel. Anyway, often firms have a change of address. So to update the records I have to update the firm record and all the individual records associated with it. The system cannot do a "universal" update for that particular member/firm. Part of the reasoning behind this I'm sure is that often there are people listed in branch offices--and they have a totally different address than the primary. This is just one small example.

Merideth, Thank you for taking the time to write an informative review. The weird issue with your PD system is still very much an active case with our development team and we expect to see resolution very soon.

Bad experience from implementation to daily use. Created more problems than solved. NOT recommended.

Pros
Relatively easy to add users, price point is within what most small staff associations have in their budgets. WYSIWYG web page creator/editor is functional.

Cons
Manual movement of data between old database, QuickBooks and ConstantContact is what sent us on the search for a new AMS. Timberlake (now Naylor) assured us the system would be able to meet all our needs and make the manual data transfer unnecessary. In reality, NONE of what we were promised has been possible. These are just some of the problems: 1. Can not mark members as having attended events. Zero check-in type functionality. Also no option for issuing credits for events not attended. 2. Renewal process is a nightmare - anything other than simply dues (e.g. section membership or additional options) requires the member to renew or staff to manually renew individual members. 3. Zero integration with QuickBooks. Payments must be entered manually. 4. Simple reports (e.g. How many members have paid their dues and how many have outstanding invoices?) don't exist. Everything requires exporting data to Excel and then sorting, running counts, etc. 5. Blast email capability is cumbersome at best (e.g. can not change subject line for membership renewal email or sending invoices) 6. Credit card payments for invoices require manual movement of data as it is not identified what the member purchased or paid for. 7. Recurring problems with members not receiving password reset emails. 8. If you have members who are part of a firm or larger organization, it is NOT possible for them to show up on their own in the directory AND bill the firm/org for all dues and invoices.

Excellent. The software and website update process went very smoothly and stayed on schedule.

Pros
The database tying in with the website is definitely the best feature. Members are able to update their profile, register for events and monitor their account through the website on their own. This feature allows staff members to easily setup event forms, invoices and track members who regularly attend functions. Without this feature it would be extremely time consuming on all staff members to prepare for events. After our update the ease of use on the administrative side was much better than before. In the beginning we were not 100% satisfied with the product. Through conversation with Timberlake support we realized that we needed the updated software and a facelift for our website. I can honestly say that Timberlake is a great software for AMS solutions, and it's very user friendly.

Cons
Since we fixed a lot of our issues that we had by updating our software, we don't have many cons of the product. One item that our members are asking for is an app. Having an app that would be directly integrated with Timberlake and our website so members could register for events via their phone would be fantastic!

Response from Naylor Association Solutions


Alyssa, we're pleased to hear about your recent success with our software. While we don't have plans to build our own event app in the near future, I can share that we're working on some pretty good stuff that will greatly open up your options for easy use of 3rd party event apps. In the meantime, our event registration process is mobile responsive and allows registrants sign up from their mobile devices.

What I have is much better than the previous versions delivered to my membership. I feel like I am bothering customer service when I have a question based on the non-verbal attitude that comes through the phone. I had a great implementation manager, but the level of service since then has left room for improvement. I pay the invoice on time, and apparently that is enough.

Pros
I really liked that the platform could do more than my previous option did and could be customized to match the existing look of the website with added functionality for a reasonable price based on other options available at the time.

Cons
While dynamic, I am still using multiple products to solve my association communication functions. I haven't found that Naylor is overly interested in being a single source for communications integrations.
