Online Trends discussed on Business Maker's Radio Show

After a recent trip to the Austin SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) festival, Schipul's Katie Laird joined fellow technology advocate Kelsey Ruger on the Business Maker's Radio Show to discuss her experience at the event.
 

The importance of the Web user was an exceptionally important concept in this year's SXSWi event.  Whether through simplified and 'user-friendly' interfaces and design or via useful tools such as Flickr and Shadows, it has never been more important for technology developers and users to focus their efforts on connecting humans to data and humans to other humans.

This socially-focused online world is a far cry from the 'read only' Web 1.0 of days gone by.  Users are empowered with tools like del.icio.us to not only manage and organize their bookmarks (or favorite Web pages and content), but to share their findings with other users, discover new online content and join online communities that have similar interests.

With other technologies like blogging, podcasting and wikis, users are given active voices in the Internet community.   A Web site is no longer just a company brochure or static group of pages, it is a place to post your opinions, to comment and connect with strangers from around the globe, to collaborate with friends and co-workers in different physical locations and to find a wealth of information with a touch of humanity.

SCHIPUL - THE WEB MARKETING COMPANY RELEASES TENDENCI® 4.1 MEMBERSHIP MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Schipul - The Web Marketing Company Releases Tendenci® 4.1 Membership Management Software

Web-based software helps organizations change the way they do business through tools that manage time and members


HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2004Schipul – The Web Marketing Company today released Tendenci® 4.1 Membership Management Software for organizations to enhance their online membership management and overall organizational effectiveness.

Tendenci 4.1 Membership Management Software is an all-in-one web-based solution that helps membership organizations save time and money while making it easy to recruit and retain members. Current Tendenci customers will enjoy added software features such as table registrations for events, group discounts, a consolidated calendar of events, a “speed-formatting” newsletter template and a “rate-this” feature that provides audience feedback about Web content. 

Additional Tendenci features include modules for job boards, résumés, news articles, press releases and an online calendar of events. 

Through Tendenci software, organization leaders can quickly and easily capture, organize and fully leverage membership data through the use of dynamic and secure Web-based tools, including:

• Event scheduling software: Tendenci allows an event planner or administrator to set-up event pricing structures for individuals and groups, set a registration deadline, collect payment online, export an attendee roster to Excel and print name badges to ensure hassle-free event check-in.

• Consolidated Event Scheduling: Tendenci allows organizations with similar member bases to share a consolidated calendar of events that appeals across memberships, complete with links to registration on respective organizational sites so payment is recorded correctly.

• Electronic newsletters: Most organizational newsletters include content that is (or should be) also available on its Web site. Tendenci’s new newsletter functionality allows clients to create a newsletter based on site content in a matter of minutes. Clients also may format their newsletters with specific content and images.

• Real time reporting features: Tendenci 4.1 records all incoming and outgoing data and correlates increased event registrations, article reads, ratings, job postings and views with these communications. Tendenci’s reports help organization leaders make sure their offerings are aligned with what members want and need. 

Members benefit from Tendenci software by being able to participate in a membership organization from their desktop by completing membership forms, learning of current events and industry news, registering and making payments online and sharing information with others.

“Many organizations do not have a comprehensive Web-based membership management solution, so they have sought to address their needs through a collection of solutions, which is not profitable and dilutes the organization’s brand,” said Ed Schipul, founder and CEO of Schipul – The Web Marketing Company. “Tendenci 4.1 is a single, robust solution that relieves administrative burdens, successfully engages members, increases the organization’s visibility and has a track record of being a profit center.” 

Schipul’s membership organization clients include the World Health Organization, the Houston Technology Center, the Houston Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, the Houston Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, 
the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Gulf Coast Section and SPE-Permian Basin and the Pediatric Pharmacy Advocacy Group.

“The Society of Petroleum Engineers Gulf Coast Section has used Tendenci to power our organizational Web site for several years. With more than 12,000 members accessing our site and more than 95 percent using the software, registering for our events has to be a simple and effective process for us to be successful. We look forward to the new software features that will help us meet increasing member needs and improve our services to our members, who depend on the Web site to keep them informed and active in the organization,” said Melissa A. Schultea, SPE Gulf Coast Section Liaison. 

Schipul also has introduced a new tiered pricing structure for Tendenci 4.1 that is based on the number of members that belong to an organization and the level of support the organization prefers on a monthly basis. Costs are as low as $175 per month for organizations with fewer than 500 members.
