Streamlined Administrative Tasks & Streamlined User Experience
AANAC's new website has significantly enhanced the association's value to members and streamlined administrative processes for staff. The site's intuitive navigation, visually appealing design, and mobile capabilities offer members and partners an improved, flexible user experience and easier access to AANAC's extensive professional resource library and career-building activities.
Engage Software built an advanced Google Map integration giving end users access to find points of interest across the different regions focusing on making sure the experience was intuitive and easy for the user no matter if they were using a laptop, tablet, or phone. The Google Maps gives the user a broad scope of all the activities' locations in relationship to other places in the park. Then, users are able to dive in deeper to discover more activities near them or in the region they plan to visit next. Using Google API and address information, we were able to add additional mapping capabilities, such as driving directions and pin location for points of interest.
With the advent of AADNS in 2016, AAPACN leveraged the work with Engage on the AANAC website to build an additional website for Directors of Nursing Services. This website also integrated with AAPACN's AMS and used the MX Online web parts for membership data and ecommerce.
Integrated with the MX Online eCommerce solution, the websites now enhance member engagement and offer greater control over the online experience. Users can easily and intuitively make online purchases, update member profiles, pay dues, connect with partners, and register for conferences, webinars, and courses. By automating these processes, time-consuming backend operations are reduced, and association staff are free to focus on more vital tasks.
Susan Turman, chief operations officer of AAPACN said, "With these projects, we wanted to not only provided members with a better, more flexible online experience, but also streamline and automate processed between our website and our AMS. Thanks to Engage's extensive experience with working with associations and the DNN platform, we were able to seamlessly connect all the critical components of our organization. We now have a modern website design and connected community to better support our members in advancing their careers."
