What is the cost for MemberPlus? Is it included in our software edition? Does it cost anything to the members?

There’s no additional cost to your association or your members. The “MemberPlus” app is available in both the iTunes and Google Play stores. It’s designed for your members, much like the ChamberMaster/GrowthZone Staff app was designed for you to use. Essentially we wanted to create an easier way for your members to update their personal and company information, register for events, interact with other members, access the Resource center (where you can upload documents and links for all or groups of members), etc…

What other tips do you have for me as I roll this out?

As you roll it out to members, we suggest adding the direct links to the MemberPlus app download pages in the iTunes app store and Google Play store.

It does require that the member have a rep login to access it so you might want to send out an email with their rep logins merged in – just in case they forgot it. Which is exactly why this is so cool, once they download it, they can click the “remember me” option and it’s so much easier to use than going out to a website and trying to remember logins.

Tip: have your staff and board members download it right away and make some posts in the social feed so as soon as members log in, they already see activity and can “like” or add posts of their own. Perhaps have your staff post a question so that members have something to respond to easily. Sometimes it just takes an easy example to get them started. There’s an icon in the upper right corner of your database called “MIC”. You can click on that to login with staff level access. You’ll be able to add posts and as staff, there’s a delete post option icon next to each post, should you ever need to remove a post that was made in error.

Working with Point of Sale

NOTE: GrowthZone Pay is required for use of the Point of Sale module. To learn more about GrowthZone Pay contact sales@growthzone.com.

The the Staff App Point of Sale module provides a full feature check-out solution. If you wish to sell additional items at your events (raffle tickets, mulligans for golf tournaments, etc.) or you want to easily sell items in the office, this can be accomplished with the Staff App. No longer do you need to tie these items to an event registration or use the back office software to accept credit card payment on-site. Your staff will appreciate the automatic transactions created on the members' account - with no extra effort - it's immediate upon purchase.

Used with the mobile card reader, this new Point of Sale module will provide quick checkout and a smooth, efficient customer experience.
