"Equation Technologies is in sync with today's organizations which are calling for cloud-based solutions so they can focus on their mission rather than on technology," said Richard Davis, Avectra's chief executive officer. "We're eager to expand our Canadian presence in partnership with the Equation team, whose stellar reputation speaks for itself."
"Avectra's Social CRM suite is simple to implement and easy to use, so our clients will be able to immediately start engaging members and strengthening their interactions with both leaders in the organization and fellow community members - overall making their membership more valuable," said Annette Balgord, vice president of Equation Technologies. "Avectra is the right technology to help associations deal with the challenges of loss of market share, increased competition for members' attention, and shrinking revenue sources."
Avectra Social CRM represents a fundamental shift in the way an organization identifies, serves and retains its members as well as how it will define the future success of the organization and its membership initiatives. The Social CRM Suite by Avectra incorporates social interactions of the relationship into an organization's membership and business strategies. As a result, associations gain a clearer view of the member's level of engagement with their organization, allowing them to identify and foster the members who are invested in the future of the association.
