The WebLink iPad App: Your Association's Sales Team’s New Best Friend

Posted by Curt Moss on Mar 4, 2013 12:27:00 AM

WebLink recently launched a brand new iPad app designed for associations and chambers of commerce using the WebLink Connect membership management system to conduct mobile commerce by accepting credit card payments for new memberships, current member invoices and event registrations when away from your office. The WebLink iPad app has only been out a few days, but the feedback has been amazing!

By streamlining the interface and workflow, we've created a intuitive tool for sales teams, events staff and executives to use when out in the field meeting with prospects or members, or when running events on site.  

Wendy Stoneberger, Vice President of Member Relations and Market Development at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, said, “The Nashville Chamber of Commerce is so happy to have the WebLink iPad app to enhance access to information and capture revenue outside the office. It’s a boost to sales and retention productivity, as well as event operations. Moving immediately from ‘yes’ to ‘paid’ is a huge asset to our membership reps and saves the hassle of chasing forms and money later."

The WebLink iPad App is fully integrated with the WebLink Connect membership management system.  The integration includes the ability to swipe credit cards with an attached credit card reader and process the transactions through the client's existing credit card gateway in WebLink Connect. There is no need for third party services or apps that would require manual reconciliation later, saving the client time and reducing potential errors.  

"The secure, real-time credit card processing, coupled with eliminating paper and extra data entry following an event, makes our members and staff feel more confident in our procedures. We also love that it sends a message of sophistication that our organization embraces technology and does not have to settle for less because we are a nonprofit organization. We found the app to be both affordable to implement and easy to adopt," Stoneberger added.

In addition to processing transactions for new members and new event registrations, the WebLink iPad app allows users to accept payment for any open invoice in the membership management database. And, checking in attendees at an event is as easy as a few touches of the screen.  No more flipping through pages of paper to find an attendee's name and check them off the list.

WebLink clients use the WebLink iPad app to quickly check in attendees at events.

“We are thrilled to have our event management now portable! This will make our reconciliation of events more efficient!  The use of this application is not only allowing us more efficiencies, it offers and easy way for volunteers to assist in event management,” said Robin  Sollie, President/CEO of the Tampa Bay Beaches FL Chamber of Commerce.

Nearly 100 chambers of commerce and business associations are already using the WebLink iPad app to mobilize their staff, improve productivity and drive revenue.  If you're a WebLink client, please contact your WebLink Relationship Manager to learn how your organization can utilize the WebLink iPad app.
