PIA was using an outdated Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) system that couldn’t manage their members on a daily basis. They were having difficulty inviting members to events efficiently.

Savvior reproduced the key life cycle applications in an ERP system to include marketing, sales, projects, enterprise reporting, inventory, ecommerce and accounting and developed an additional online Bill Pay module. This customized effort provided streamlined data base management, effective membership tracking, managed promotions and allowed quick and easy ordering and payment. It included employee relationship management and tracked event attendance and purchases.

A customized accounting package was developed for invoicing and ledger reporting with a flexible reporting functionality that allows users to create advanced reports on every data element within the system.

The customized Savvior system consolidated applications for better efficiency and improved the workflow into a single source environment so all objectives were met. Now the software is available to numerous affiliates who are now able to use it as their own CRM/ Ecommerce package.
