Maybe you’re thinking about trying out MemberHub or another school communications system. Or maybe you haven’t gotten that far yet – you’re just thinking that your school communications need some help! Either way, if you don’t settle on something that’s a good fit for both your school and the people within it, your school communications “solution” will wind up creating far more hassles than it solves. Here’s our list of the top… read more →
It’s no secret that tech has arrived in the classroom – which is a wonderful thing for teachers, students and parents! Classroom management software can help teachers facilitate group collaboration, monitor students’ computer activities, assess students’ learning progress, communicate with parents and much more. As my children get older it’s interesting to see what types of software schools use. There are so many different tools and so many different platforms…how… read more →
Have you ever managed a waiting list? It can be a cumbersome process. Especially when you have complicated rules like priority based on membership status, families or employees, managing a waitlist can be a time-consuming, tree-killing process. Enter BumbleBee Software. It’s billed as childcare waiting list software but it could easily be used for any type of organization that consistently deals with waiting lists.
We’ve had several people tell us recently that they haven’t found a system that approaches group software quite like MemberHub. Everytime I hear this it makes me smile. Of course it’s uplifting to learn that someone finds our product unique, but what’s more encouraging is that it continues to validate our approach towards our “group software”. So what’s the difference?

Choosing the right software at the right time is no exception. Knowing when to buy that key piece of software for your organization and more importantly why you’re buying it is important. Let me give you an example of how… read more →
Yesterday I listened to a webinar put on by Drew Goodmanson and Cynthia Ware on the State of the Church Online. You can read an excellent review of the research findings that they presented over here and the slides from the presentation are here. These guys are doing a really good work. I personally believe that this research and the motivation behind it is edifying, reverent and inspired. God’s timing… read more →
While our website does a reasonable job of explaining MemberHub’s features and benefits, a quick video walkthrough of any software application can always help. The video below will give you a 50,000 foot view of the purpose of MemberHub and excellent walk-through of the application. I encourage you to watch this short, 6 minute video and tell us what you think!
Seminaries face unique challenges. Secular universities and colleges are up to their eyeballs in the new world of communications that include social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook. There are few if any filters on these offerings and they generally pose more problems for a seminary environment than they do solutions. Does that mean that seminaries are to be left in the Dark Ages with regard to communication? Let’s hope… read more →
Have you ever prepared for a presentation and heard this advice: Tell ’em what you’re gonna tell ’em. Tell ’em. Then, tell ’em what you told ’em. In case that slang isn’t very clear to read, that says to tell your audience what you’re going to tell them as the first step. Then actually tell the audience exactly that. When you’re done with that, recap what you just said. Basically… read more →
I love well-designed software; that abides in usability standards and generally helps users. Or perhaps I should say that I can’t stand poorly designed, unusable software. You know the software I’m talking about. The one where you do the same action every time you use it, but it takes you 5 minutes to find it each time (and you always swear you’ll write it down so next time you don’t… read more →
