Club Membership System is an easy-to-use program that allows clubs of all types to keep track of member activity. The intuitive interface makes it easy to get started even without previous experience with this kind of software.
The program's interface is clean and easy to understand. The main features, including adding, editing, and viewing members, are arranged with large, easy-to-access buttons. It's simple to add members, edit their contact information, and add images to their profiles. Although the interface is not the most beautiful we've ever seen, it is very intuitive. The program's built-in Help file is well-written, but we had little need for it. More than simply a database of members, Club Membership System allows users to perform a variety of membership management functions. Clubs can also print photo ID cards, run reports detailing member activity, and optionally track user visits using a barcode scanner. This is a great choice for settings in which it would be beneficial to track the frequency and duration of member visits, as well as settings that need to ensure that all members have left the premises at the end of the day. The program includes a separate Front Gate Module that allows users to look up incoming members by number and approve them. Overall, we liked both the variety of features that Club Membership System offers as well as how easy it is to use.
Club Membership System is free to try, but the trial version allows only five member profiles to be created. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
Club Membership System was designed to meet the requirements of a club which needs to maintain a membership database and to track the activities of a member at the club. It creates customizable membership cards which can include barcodes, photos, text, and images. Included with the basic system is visit logging where member visits to the club are tracked. Additional modules and features can be added to handle entry or session passes, operator passwords, and other custom transaction codes.
Club Membership System works with or with a barcode scanner for handling member cards, passes, and other transactions. Several computers can be networked together to access a central database creating a comprehensive system. Each basic module and feature is separately licensed allowing the software to cover the needs of all types of clubs from small to large.
