“ISG did a wonderful job with our iMIS 20.2 upgrade. We are very happy with the new capabilities, and our event team is pleased with the way the upgrade resolved our multiple email confirmations and the scheduler issue. Upgrading was an excellent decision.”

“We used RiSE to develop a relationship management system so our staff could keep track of the donors they were responsible for and the progression of interactions to get a donation. Before this system each fundraiser tracked donors in their own way. There was no consistency, and no way to see the big picture. We worked with ISG Solutions to build out a proof of concept for our annual donations, which we then implemented on our live site. I then created something similar for a specific fundraising campaign. Once we had it in place, the staff who embraced it became far more successful in their fundraising activities. ISG played a critical role in the success of the project. We were new to RiSE. ISG’s training was the key piece in getting the system implemented successfully.”

“We just rolled out our new staff site, and I have had very good feedback. Our staff members really like it. They can get to the data they want to see with fewer clicks. You can pull up a meeting, see how many people are coming, what the revenue is, how many days out it is, then click on a button and pull up the registration list. In the membership portion, you can see so much about an organization or individual – what they participated in, their history. Instead of clicking around to several pages, the data they want is right there on the front screen.”

“Our hardcore iMIS users still access the database in the traditional way. But the biggest advance for us was the occasional users, who are not as tech-savvy. Now they can keep the RiSE staff site open in their browser all day, select the report they want from a drop-down menu with pre-defined queries, and drill down to the information they want.”

“I think I speak for our entire staff when I say that we love the new staff site. Instead of logging in through the website, you login through the browser, which is so much easier. It’s just like Amazon or eBay. And instead of waiting every Friday for weekly reports on event registrations and memberships, our staff can now check those numbers whenever they want, without running a query. The information is available on the dashboard in real-time, so we always know the latest numbers.”

“Our iMIS 20.2 upgrade went very smoothly. We had one minor glitch the morning after the upgrade when I had a little trouble getting the desktop version loaded. But ISG got back to me right away, the issue was resolved quickly and we were up and running without delay.”

“The RiSE staff sites have freed up time for the people in the office who used to run reports. Now they can focus on other responsibilities. They have been able to spend time going through the database and making sure the information is up-to-date and accurate. They have also started presenting data to senior management. They’ll say something like ‘Have you thought about this one meeting? Here are some demographics about who attends in this part of the country.’ Instead of doing daily tasks they have moved into more of a data analysis role.”

“With one of the RiSE sites ISG created, there was a lot of paperwork and filing involved in membership renewals. Providing online renewal delivered ease of use for members and allowed the association to automate processes that were previously done by one or two people.”

“RiSE gave us a better way to handle online donations. Before, we had the ability to accept online donations that was secure but not as secure as it could have been, and the information didn’t go directly into iMIS. We wanted a secure system that would work directly with the database eliminating the extra labor of importing. We started with a fairly out-of-the-box iMIS implementation that used the default template just to get it up and running and make sure everything worked. Then we worked with ISG to develop the CSS and some of the other components to make it look just like our new website. It’s definitely been successful and well-utilized. We’ve seen an increase in online donations, and it is less work for our fundraising staff because all of the donations are processed directly through iMIS. There are no extra steps to import the online giving data into iMIS.”

“Going from iMIS 10 to iMIS 20 was like going from a Toyota to a Maserati. It was a big jump, with a huge learning curve, but we all enjoyed the ride.”

“More and more people are using their smartphones when they are out and about, and they want access to the data on mobile. Some of our staff go up on the Hill, and they used to have to print out reports to bring with them. Now they can access the data they need on their phones while they are on the way over.”

“With one of our client sites, we had some challenges because we were stretching the software beyond its normal limits. ISG did a great job of coming up with solutions that met the needs of our client while living within the constraints of the software. I definitely appreciate their innovation and problem-solving.”

“ISG takes the time to understand our business and they always come up with a game plan that gives me different options for solving my problems or addressing issues we might have. There’s a comfort level that puts my mind at ease when it comes to managing our membership data and infrastructure.”

“Our government relations group has several committees, and with the RiSE site they can easily see who is on which committee, when the committee last met, and whether the member was previously on a panel or a speaker at an event. The historical data is all there in one place.”

“I just wanted to say how wonderful Tonya Abel is. She is a total whiz with the voucher program and helped make it possible for us to develop our membership recession promotions that launched on Tuesday. She also added some bells and whistles that will make it easier for us in the future to modify some commonly used areas in iMIS. You are very lucky to have someone like her… She was unruffled, pleasant, got things done, knew what she was doing (absolutely the best thing of all!) and how to fix things quickly. She just amazed me. I was extremely pleased to work with her and wanted you to know that she was excellent.”
