ACCESS International, a privately held company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has been an industry leader and innovator since its founding in 1978.
Early on we concluded there were no short cuts to installing and supporting a successful fund-raising system for our customers and that in order to meet each clients unique requirements, we must learn not only what you do, but why. The value of a comprehensive understanding of the individual and their situation is reflected in our software and remains a cornerstone of the way we innovate and conduct business.
Until 1992, we focused exclusively on organizations that required highly customized software solutions to meet their diverse needs. In 1993, we set out to combine all of the best practices and innovations we had customized into a single software solution, ENTERPRISE. ENTERPRISE quickly became the industry standard for larger, more complex not-for-profit organizations.
Over the past 15 years, ACCESS has worked closely with organizations in a wide range of fields including United Way, Public Broadcasting, Health and Social Services and Cultural organizations. We have worked hard to develop customized versions of our software that embrace the unique requirements and subtleties of those market segments. Today, the ENTERPRISE system sets the software standard for all sizes and types of organizations and our latest release, ENTERPRISE® v7.2 has expanded to reflect further customer best practices, industry trends and the latest technology innovations.
At ACCESS, we understand that information is the power source of effective relationship building and fund-raising. Our ENTERPRISE system unlocks the extraordinary potential of your data, allowing you to approach your fund-raising from a coordinated and individualized marketing perspective and enabling you to better manage direct marketing, research, contact management, volunteers, planned giving and special event efforts all from a single, centralized database.
ACCESS International bases both our software and services on the reality that fund-raising is an ever changing activity. Our solution is flexible, intuitive and designed to evolve with you and your community.
Our Allegiance is to You
Since our start, our mission has been to help non-commercial broadcasters raise more money and operate more efficiently.
More than 35 years ago, we were approached by a public broadcasting station that was looking for the same features and functionality found in the comprehensive fundraising software used by the "big" stations. Accepting the challenge, we, along with the station membership coordinator, worked diligently to develop a fully-relational database management system. Allegiance Software was born. As public broadcasters learned about our sophisticated yet easy-to-use software, demand increased dramatically. And in 2003 Allegiance Software expanded to the religious broadcast industry.
Allegiance Software has migrated to new platforms as technology has progressed — from IBM minicomputers to DOS to GUI to ASNA to the current .NET computer language — and developed mobile apps and Cloud solutions. Development is highly user-driven; we carefully listen to our customers and enhanced our products as their fundraising practices evolve.
Our goal has always been to deliver powerful solutions that can be managed within the development department without requiring engineering or computer programming assistance. When help is needed, Allegiance Software support is just a phone call away, day or night.
Allegiance Software solutions are now used by over 170 public and religious broadcasters nation wide.
MemSys Membership Fundraising Software has helped non-profit organizations grow and prosper since 1985. This is our 29th year serving donor-supported public and religious broadcasting stations. Our latest additions include fully integrated online software: eSolicitations module broadcasts personalized emails, and WebSys creates an unlimited library of online pledge forms (e.g. Donate Now, or scripted versions for a Call Center or Drive Volunteers).
MemSys empowers its users with cost-effective software solutions that support personalized Email appeals, broadcast and web based pledge drives, special appeals including annual giving and additional gifts, automatic gift processing, market research and major giving CRM.
