For 12 months we have been scoping, planning and developing a major update to the data management system (DMS), creating a brand-new product named Rotary View, designed to enhance and enrich your Rotary GB&I experience – not just as a club or district officer, but as an individual member.
With a strong focus on creating a “one-stop-shop”, reducing the need to switch back and forth between multiple systems, Rotary View will provide all the tools needed to maintain your Rotary information – whether that be specific membership details, contact information for your club or district, or reports on membership and much more.
Working behind the scenes of Rotary View ensures its data is constantly kept in check with the Rotary International database meaning no differences between the two sets of data, moving the product from a synchronisation system to a feature-rich system our membership will have reason to use.
Current functions and tools will be of a higher standard and new features have been introduced such as member-to-member communication, via a messaging service and video/non-video call capabilities; new search systems are designed for members to step beyond the district boundaries and facilitate communications across Rotary GB&I.
The Template System will then be entirely focused for clubs and districts to use as it was originally intended – as a website platform to increase engagement from outside of Rotary, ultimately increasing publicity for club activities and membership development.”
Rotary View also includes an events system allowing the increased recording of information for club and district events, and the ability for members to register or record their attendance.
The Rotary Template System has long served clubs and districts as a centrally maintained standardised template for club and district websites, offering a professional ‘on brand’ look to the outside world.
As part of the Rotary View development, we will remove administration functions from within the Template System and include them within Rotary View.
The Template System will then be entirely focused for clubs and districts to use as it was originally intended – as a website platform to increase engagement from outside of Rotary, ultimately increasing publicity for club activities and membership development.
Going forwards this will allow us to build on and enhance the functions of the Template providing website tools that allow for more flexibility and design for clubs.
Rotary View is on its way to you now so please look out for email communications over the coming weeks and I hope you enjoy this new member service, it’s been designed for you!
