We know switching software providers can be painful so we created this post to help you quickly and easily decide why you should use SilkStart.

To help make the decision making process easier for you, we took some insights from a Capterra survey. In it, Capterra surveyed associations to determine a) the top things associations look for when picking a software solution for the first time, and b) the top things association’s looks for when they consider switching software vendors.

We combined these into a single list and elaborated on how SilkStart addresses each of them.

    • The top 4 things associations look for in association management software:
