Professional associations, and unions need a solution for identity, communications, validation, credentials, continuing education, safety and security
Professional associations, and unions have a great deal of benefits for their members, that is why Professional Association Unions safety and security is important:
- Industry standards
- Code of ethics
- Updates on policies, procedures and technologies.
Membership is all about identity, all about being part of something bigger that provides credibility. Members need resources like: continuing education, ability to communicate and partner, and access to groups and resources.
Professional associations and unions serve a specific type of job or professions; however, the members can be very diverse. Younger members who are getting started have greater support needs, and higher expectations when it comes to technology, communication and support. Mature members who are well established, may be looking at different benefits from the system, perhaps providing themselves with credibility, building reputation, recruiting and creating opportunities to share their skills and mentor.
Here as some of the somewhat unique needs of professional association and union communication system:
1Ability to create a Professional Association or Union ID that is easily distributed and easily revoked across your membership base. The classic “union card” can be replaced with a flexible app solution.
2Ability to create and distribute smart cards that are easily distributed and easily revoked across your network. If you use smart cards for access or as a means to manage a payment system, You will want integrated standards (HID SEOS) software based smart cards.
3Ability to create brand and community with an app/system that provides many features that engage membership.
4Provide support for unique help requests, that may entail any number of issues that extend well beyond security concerns, like labor disputes, payment disputes or other critical issues that your members want to report, and want to make certain they are heard and responded to.
5Provide emergency broadcasts across your membership base. Having the ability to react quickly and communicate to a broadbase of your membership in seconds, not hours provides not only the perception of power, but the reality of power based upon your organization to mobilize in minutes.
6Provide support services from both a centralized and decentralized approach.
7Flexibility to create campus specific help requests, emergency broadcasts, locations, and custom resource apps. IDentifyED is a very customizable solution set in which you can create your own very powerful solution with a large selection of tools.
8Engaging features that members want to use like chat, message boards, file sharing, picture sharing, todos, calendar sharing, location sharing, group management.
9Members can create their own communication dashboard/portfolio where they are able to manage their own communications and reputation. Imagine if Facebook or Linkedin had really useful tools. You can provide that to your members.
