Marketing an Organization, recruiting new members, constantly putting out a quality product, retaining and keeping members happy, can easily become a stressful full-time job for its directors and officers. Most members show up to a monthly meeting, get their newsletter, or visit the website, never realizing the tireless hours that dedicated directors and officers spend on a weekly basis to run their organization. Directors get burned out and harder to recruit every year, and subsequently more of the workload gets distributed to the few dedicated that are passionate and carry the weight. It's a thankless job, but somebody's got to do it!
ORGx2 is committed to simplifying your life as a director, saving you time, saving your organization money, and providing a better end product, a.k.a. Organization, for your membership. Developed by seasoned club webmasters and directors, ORGx2 incorporates enterprise level data management with a comfortable, intuitive, non-intimidating web browser interface. Below is a brief overview of some of the benefits of ORGx2.
Save with ORGx2!
Save Time: Calculate the man-hours spent in board meetings discussing items that could have been easily researched on directors own time rather than extending the board meeting out another 30 minutes. Figure out the time spent requesting and passing around files by email, recreating files due to lost data, coming up with content for newsletters, etc. Estimate the amount of work lost if a director leaves or his home computer with an essential piece of club data on it crashes. "Work Smarter, Not Harder". ORGx2 is working smarter.
Save Members and Directors: Every organization looses members because members are unhappy with the organizations directors or handling of matters. Every organization looses directors because they cant deal with the expectations of the members and the inability to satisfy them. Members and Directors get "burned out". When things run smooth and efficient, members and directors are likely to leave less and become more active.
Save Money: ORGx2 offers a varsity of ways for organizations to save and actually generate money. Eliminate web hosting and maintenance fees, and reduce or eliminate printing and postage fees for newsletters and club communications. Most of our customers have recouped their annual fees several times over in cost savings and sponsor campaigns. Many of our organizations are generating additional revenue a year from the ORGx2 system.
Save the Planet: Multiply how many newsletters you send out a month times number of pages times how many members times months in a years. How many pages of printed paper go to each member each year. Many organizations, that number is over 100 per member per year. With ORGx2, members are asked to choose between e-communcations, print and mail, or both. If only 20% of you members opted for e-communcations, think of the reduced environmental impact every year.

A director or committee member leaves the organization and does not transfer their files to someone upon their leaving
