McGladrey to Partner with MembersFirst

Offering Process and Technology Solutions to Member-Based Organizations in the Leisure, Private Club and Hospitality Industries

September 18, 2012 McGladrey LLP, the nation's fifth largest provider of assurance, tax and consulting services and leading provider of full-scope technology consulting and finance and accounting services, recently announced a strategic relationship with MembersFirst, a leading provider of end to end technology solutions and services catering to private clubs.

Under this relationship, McGladrey will become a value-added reseller (VAR) of MembersFirst Club Management™, the industry’s leading club management solution. MembersFirst Club Management has recently been fully integrated into the company’s core MRM™ (Member Relationship Management) platform to create a real-time, flexible and easy to use solution that will help clubs increase revenue through targeted member marketing and reduce costs through the use of a single technology partner.

"As we worked with our private club clients to understand their business requirements, we recognized the opportunity to partner with MembersFirst to jointly help them improve their club management and finance operations," said Jim Cashin, McGladrey’s national leader of Business Process Outsourcing services. "We quickly realized the depth of MembersFirst solutions combined with its development platform, configurability, and industry-specific functionality was clearly an excellent option."

"We are thrilled to partner with McGladrey around our leading club management solution," said Tony Baudanza, President and CEO at MembersFirst. "This new relationship enables clients to focus on their core business by removing accounting, inventory, point-of-sale, and software integration challenges and provides an opportunity for McGladrey consultants and MembersFirst to work collaboratively with clubs to create new business opportunities while streamlining operations."
