MemberClicks and ACI Launch Partnership to Provide More Tangible Value to Association Members (print)
ATLANTA - AUG 27, 2013 - MemberClicks partners with Affinity Center International (ACI) to bring their association customers turnkey loyalty programs for member retention and new revenue sources.
The partnership marries ACI's product innovation, AchieveLinks®, with MemberClicks' reputation for quality and service in the industry. Through AchieveLinks, current and future MemberClicks association customers are offered a full suite of member loyalty benefits at no additional charge.
"The AchieveLinks program already provides many associations with a powerful tool to engage their members and we at MemberClicks are very excited about furthering our clients' missions through the ACI, MemberClicks partnership," said MemberClicks' Vice President of Customer Experience, Duncan McCreery.
AchieveLinks is the association industry's first business and personal rewards program. Associations can offer the program as a free benefit to their members while earning non-dues revenue for the association. Members earn Links® Reward Points for the purchases they make every day.
"Both companies thought it made sense to work together to offer a combined solution that provides turnkey association management software that is natively integrated with the industry's loyalty program for member retention," explained ACI's President and Founder, David Carrithers. "This makes it easy for associations to improve member engagement and bring additional value to their members."
MemberClicks associations can gain access to the AchieveLinks rewards program and credit card directly from their MemberClicks website, without a separate login. Additionally, these associations can offer a co-branded reward based credit card. The program provides full access to more than 1,000 participating merchants where members can earn directly through the AchieveLinks website or increase their points earnings when using the card.
