A very warm welcome to our new home!
We have migrated our website onto the Wild Apricot's web & cloud based web host, and membership management system (MMS). We have decided to use this licensed platform to manage the society’s transactions; event registrations and membership matters. The URL ssr.org.sg remains unchanged. Although the look and feel remains similar, the entire backend system has changed.
Wild Apricot is a specialized association management software, which focuses on producing and maintaining one of the best association management software services in the world. It is trusted by 14,182 associations globally with over 3 million users worldwide. As part of the software as a service (SAAS) annual subscription, the server & software management, and the security updates & troubleshooting services, are all completely managed by professional Wild Apricot staff. Having this peace of mind allows the SSR EXCO to focus our efforts on more value adding activities.
While it may sound like an expensive solution, it is actually not. In fact, SSR saves on hefty software development fees and web hosting fees. On top of that, there will be no cost involved in yearly maintenance & software upgrades as these are already included as part of the SAAS subscription.
The overall benefits are: increased cyber security, webpage reliability and round-the-clock technical support. Once members log in, they will be brought to the member’s only area where they can access members-only content like the SSR constitution and past meeting minutes. Members will now enjoy a much better membership subscription payment and renewal experience. When active members sign up for an event using their accounts, the system verifies their log-in credentials and they are automatically billed a reduced members' rate. Past events can also be conveniently referenced.
We appreciate your understanding; enduring the last couple of months of downtime with patience and enthusiastically awaiting the dawn of the new website. We sure hope that you will make the most of our new website and continue to support the SSR.
Meanwhile, do also look out for information on our 60 years anniversary Diamond Jubilee gala dinner, which will be released very soon!
