Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts
Barbara Canoni, Operations Manager / Market Services
AGC MA Operations Manager Barbara Canoni led the efforts for the association to evaluate various software options where all member information could be accessed in one place. She knew finding the right technology would be a long-term cost savings investment.
“We needed a system that would help us provide our members with timely and accurate information,” said Barbara. “It used to be that financial information was only accessible through our bookkeeper, so if a member needed to check an invoice, we would have to wait until the bookkeeper could get to it.”
After thorough research and many product demonstrations, Barbara found GrowthZone to be the clear choice. It met all of her top requirements, including being user-friendly so all staff could have easy access to member information. AGC MA staff reported that the onboarding and data conversion process was an “awesome” experience. GrowthZone AMS was also less expensive than most other systems they reviewed.
Today, invoicing for programs, events and dues, along with creating name badges, are all automated. GrowthZone AMS also helps the association track member utilization, which is important for providing ROI at membership renewal time.
“GrowthZone AMS simplifies most everything we do,” Barbara added. “We can produce more in less time every single day, which in turn reduces costs and allows for a more equitable division of work between staff. That way when someone is out, another person can step right in.”
Barbara added three words to describe GrowthZone: “Simply the Best!”
