MemberTies vs MemberTies Professional

MemberTies (without "Professional" added to the name) is the standard version of the software. This version is designed to support the needs of most small organizations. It provides a variety of reports, tracks all kinds of information and relationships, and is still small enough to download in a reasonable amount of time.

MemberTies Professional is an extension of the standard MemberTies release, designed for larger organizations, or those that just need more advanced features. While a smaller organization might be satisfied with the basic view of the Membership List, a larger organization may need to define multiple views. Therefore, with MemberTies Professional, you can do just that. This is the essential nature of the professional version -- to expand on or add features to the standard version that may not be needed by smaller organizations.

The professional version will also be used for most major new enhancements to the software, unless those enhancements make sense to be included in the standard version as well.

The following table illustrates the main features of both.

Licensing Note: A standard license can be upgraded to the professional version at any time for a small fee. A standard MemberTies license cannot be used with MemberTies Professional, or visa-versa.

"The MemberTies program outpaces all other membership programs. It is progressively updated and continuing to expand its vast array of capabilities to meet the needs of every user. Three thumbs up."
