We're planning to replace our current, home-grown course registration and membership management system with a software service. We were wondering whether other LLIs have vendors they recommend.

Also, we would be interested in comments, good or bad, about the two vendors that we are currently considering:

ProClass
Augusoft Lumens

Our OLLI at Penn State uses ProClass and we love it. Feel free to contact me for specific information.

Sarah,

Is this a software package or an online service? What do you like or dislike? Start-up and ongoing costs? Start up effort or training? What did you use before? Just a few questions - maybe you would share with us?

Thanks...Art

Hi Art,
I'm Laurence Ryan with LLI at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY , with 265 members.
We are also considering putting our Registration process online.

Have you made any decision yet about which service to use?

If so, would you be prepared to share your experiences, e.g.:
- which vendors you considered
- which factors influenced your choice
- Which was your final choice
- how the implementation went

Thanks...Laurence

Hi Laurence,

No significant input from LLI Network to date. We are still using manual registrations. We maintain our member list and registrations in a M/S Works database, that has been in place for 20 plus years. We have approx 400 somewhat active and 200 very active members. We are an all volunteer org with a two year turn over rate on board members and officers. The only long time position holders are the treasurer and four committee chairs, of which I am one.

I have an IT background so I am thinking about designing a relational data base using Libre Office to replace the antiquated Works system. However, I am reluctant to commit to online registrations because of the risk and cost associated with handling online payments.

So this reply probably does not help you. But I'd love to hear your opinion(s). What have you found? What are your plans?

Cheers...Art
