Alumni Channel is Easy, Fast, Fun, and Can Even Be Free

Reviewed 12 years ago

While there are plenty of competitors in the current market for alumni and membership groups, I wouldn't recommend any other than Alumni Channel. The products and services offered, features and benefits, and excellent customer service and support - combined with extremely reasonable price points will be the reason that my alumni network will continue doing business with AC for many years to come. Finally, with a very generous referral program, alumni and membership group leaders can run their networks virtually for free by promoting the power and potential of Alumni Channel.

Pros

Founding an alumni network for my high school was a piece of cake because of Alumni Channel's product and service. While I had a background in graphic and web design, pratically none of my expertise was needed from a design perspective. Nearly everything was automated and populating the system with members, content, and event info. was a cinch. Alumni Channel's services are pretty basic, but the number...

Cons

There is nothing I can think of that comes to mind about any flaws or constraints with regard to Alumni Channel. Perhaps if I had the chance to take advantage of all the features, I could come up with something that as missing. However, from my experience, based on the needs of my alumni network, there are no issues I can think of at this time.

Alumni Channel

Reviewed 12 years ago

The site is simple and easy to use with a quick learning curve. I think it works great and would highly recommend the site for those that don't have IT creatives on-hand to manage and maintain their own website. Service from the staff is exceptional. Helpful responses come quickly to questions, concerns and requests.

Pros

Chris has been quick to respond to requests for adaptations/customization to the sites and most of the requests for customization were fulfilled. The simple and easy to use system allows me to quickly upload news and other information. The layout makes it easy for users to find new information.

Cons

With 3 different sites to manage, I find the slightly different formats used for storing/reporting alumni data make end of month reports more difficult than they should be. I would prefer to have the data in a MySQL compatible format that could allow for e-commerce and similar operations. The current layout leaves quite a bit of information below the fold. especially if there are expanded entries...

Alumni Channel

Reviewed 9 years ago

Some of the highlights of Alumni Channel that have been beneficial to our Alumni Association include: 1)Self-managed profile management for each user 2)Links to Social Media 3)Event Management Cons: 1) Built on older framework that isn't as flexible as we'd like. Layout styles are dated and a bit stale, and using it requires training and Q&A. A better, more modern (less proprietary) framework...

Liberty HS Class of 1961 Website

Reviewed 17 days ago

Had it not been for [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and Alumni Channel, we would not have launched a class website. I wish we would have done it sooner, but it is read by over 100 people each month and is an excellent way for us to keep in touch generally and to communicate important information.

Pros

I particularly like the ease with which the membership directory function works. I also like the profile feature and only wish more classmates would have written about their post-high school lives.

Cons

I am a user and not an administrator so what we have suits me.

Webb Institute Review

Reviewed 11 years ago

There is perhaps no greater challenge in a fast-growing organization, than finding great organizations capable of ensuring success. We encountered just such a challenge at Webb Institute. I was tasked with finding brilliant minds and passionate hearts to help our organization serve our growing thousands of faculty, students, administration, alumni and parents. Alumni Channel has both, and was a...

Pros

Many of the pros of the system are its ease of use, customizable databases and interfaces, meet the needs of end users on all computer levels, and feature an ever changing list of enhancements that try improving the system; while maintaining superior customer service.

Cons

I to date have seen no cons with Alumni Channel.

Alumni Channel gave us a professional website with many features.

Reviewed 9 years ago

We are extremely happy with our choice of Alumni Channel. Chis Gehringer has been a pleasure to work with throughout the implementation process and after we went live. He is always accessible and will quickly respond to any questions we might have. Do yourself a favor and make the decision to move to the Alumni Channel today!

Pros

Ease of use, customizable to meet our needs, technical support, speed of site, many features and functionality, integration of social media, and cost. User experience, ability to reconnect with other classmates and accept donations. Database and profile management make it easy to send email blasts.

Cons

None at all.

Simple way to keep alumni in touch

Reviewed 10 months ago

We have been able to use this software to keep our graduation class in touch, especially with planning our 10 year reunion. There was a bit of a learning curve with the software, however the customer support has been great, and they have been able to help us solve any issues we have come across. I also really like that each user of Alumni channel has the capability to manage their own profile.

Pros

The customer support during and after the initial set up was so helpful. With the fee, we also go training to go along with the program which really helped us all be more competent with the program.

Cons

Some people think the user interface seems a little dated, but is definitely still usable and functional.

Vendor response

Thank you, Elizabeth. We are glad the software has helped with your reunion plans and to keep graduate information up to date.
