BoosterPro, an end-to-end SaaS solution intended to modernize the member management, event, fundraising, reporting and other operations for booster clubs, PTAs, school groups and other volunteer - based organizations.
In a situation all-too-familiar in the business technology arena, Galaxy Weblinks was asked to rescue, reimagine and ultimately design and develop an industry-defining business idea that was plagued by a previous vendor’s poor conceptualization, design and development efforts. Considerable investments, poor system performance and an inability to deliver led to Galaxy Weblinks involvement in the project and the customer now is on target to fundamentally change the way tens of millions of youth and other extracurricular participants register, volunteer, participate in and financially support their local booster clubs.
The company had invested significant time and capital in a system that was failing to meet basic performance, scalability and operational requirements. Specific challenges included non-intuitive back- and front-end systems; incomplete or poorly architected applications; non-modular architecture for tailored solution requirements; slow page load speeds; and inadequate return on significant monetary investment.
Galaxy Weblinks was enlisted to overhaul the entire system yet, where possible, repurpose existing applications and architecture. For a far more reasonable budget, Galaxy Weblinks was able to redesign the back- and front-end systems to create a clean, intuitive, modern club management dashboard and public facing web design.
We also created innovative member management, event management, fundraising, e-store, sponsorship and reporting applications in a truly modular approach that enables clubs to easily activate only the tools they want. The reporting system allows for roll-up, drill-down reporting for effective member, volunteer and financial reporting.
More recently, we have been putting the finishing touches on a Wizard-based, point-and-click design approach that makes the entire setup process dramatically easier and intuitive, even for true technical novices. The Wizard is a first-of-its-kind approach to this kind of system and includes the ability to design and implement oftentimes cumbersome member registration forms in just minutes. Similarly, our e-store application for club fundraising includes inventory management, tax and fulfillment services that effectively mimic an actual e-tail platform – but for booster clubs.
Galaxy Weblinks truly pulled our bacon out of the fire. We are thrilled not only with how responsive and capable they were in rescuing our project. But they have been absolutely critical in helping us further identify and define our offerings – precisely what you would want in a technology partner.
