The International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC) has chosen Raklet to provide an easy way for their members to access membership benefits with a great user experience. Administrators can manage their members, update their info, and collect membership payments without any hassle.
There are two key benefits of implementing a membership management software for any society. The first one of these benefits is a customized membership application form to pre-qualify members at the time of their application. The second key benefit is the integration of a journal access.
Membership management for the International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC)
ISS/SIC is a community of 6 Integrated Societies with surgeons from more than 100 different countries. Their goal is to provide international education in specialized surgeries as well as general surgeries in developed and developing countries.
What ISS/SIC thought about our membership software
“The greatest change and values in the application for us is, that an applicant can actually see the fee immediately when application details are entered in the system- (we didn’t do applications via email before). Applicants actually had to complete a long form which was rather complex-look and feel for users/applicants now is a lot better.
Initially, all the files were sent through emails and there was a high chance that these member details could be lost. Now, event a new administrator can easily access member data and send out custom notifications based on the custom fields they have in the application forms.”Densie, ISS/SIC
