What was the best part about using PeakAMS?
To say PeakAMS is comprehensive would be an understatement. From the quick-search member rolls and powerful CRM management to its thorough event planning and fast billing automation, PeakAMS delivers top-notch, fully customizable, powerful software functionality. PeakAMS’ many capabilities are fully integrated; seamlessly updating the correct category of the organization’s knowledgebase 24/7. I like their no obligation, 30-day free trial. And their eMarketing and flexible letter management are enhancements not normally seen in this software’s peer group.
What would you change about your experience with PeakAMS?
Supposedly, the least expensive option (of their supposed four options) called the Camp. Reasonably priced at $199 per month and allowing up to 500 members, the Camp is no longer available. Why? (Verbatim from their website pricing page) “Due to the demand. We are currently not accepting customers of this size.”
Huh? Is PeakAMS implying that the so-called “high demand” caused them to run out of their software? Or are they saying that the Camp’s cost/benefit ratio is no longer acceptable? Either way, customers with 500 or less members are driven to the next rung up the option ladder; which by default, has now become the least expensive “available” option. This option, named the Trail, allows up to 50,000 members and costs $799 per month.
“Me thinks me smells something fishy.” This is an age old marketing ploy (a version of the bait and switch) and goes something like this, “Sorry Sir, but we sold out of that product you wanted. But, don’t dismay, all is not lost. Allow me to show you what we do have and it’s actually a better alternative...” Even the membership limits themselves (500, then 50,000, then, 100,000, and finally 100 million) seems arbitrary.
Call me cynical...because I am. And without further explanation offered by PeakAMS, I’m inclined to believe that the Camp’s brief life, or even its very existence, and the ensuing pricing scenario is, at best, dubious.
Filled to the brim with powerful association management functions, including an array of enhanced capabilities, PeakAMS is the choice for organizations who desire as many bells and whistles as possible.
PeakAMS will save countless (and expensive) hours with its adept content collection, categorization, analysis, and placement into all appropriate areas within an organization’s knowledgebase; enabling all users to immediately access the organizational or membership details they need.
