Launch of iMIS 15, Best-in-Class Technology, Attracts Fundraising Industry Experts to Company

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (May 15, 2007) — With demand growing for iMIS 15, Advanced Solutions International (ASI), the leading global provider of software for non-profits, today announced the expansion of its business development team with the appointments of fundraising industry experts Ed Beck and Dan Germain as a Senior Account Executive and Senior Executive for Strategic Business Development respectfully. Leveraging their deep understanding of this market, Beck and Germain will be responsible for expanding iMIS 15 adoption within enterprise-level non-profit organizations.

“Fundraising organizations face unique technology challenges and we believe in supplying web-based solutions that embrace their individual business needs using one database with a single location for name, address, and historical customer information,” said Bob Alves, Chairman and CEO of ASI. “Adding savvy and distinguished industry veterans such as Ed and Dan who have a proven history in this market personally, brings a level of understanding to ASI that will have great benefit to the company and its customers.”

Germain has spent 25 years in the non-profit software market, most recently with Sage Software as a Vice President and General Manager for Product Management and Marketing, where he directed the product strategy for the MIP Fund Accounting Software as well as several fundraising and donor management solutions. Beck is a 23-year industry veteran and former Vice President of Information Systems for Prison Fellowship Ministries, where he led the top 250 non-profit’s CRM implementation, business process redesign, website redesign, WAN creation and advanced online funds processing capability.

“With the release of iMIS 15, non-profit organizations worldwide finally have a viable choice when selecting next-generation constituent and donor relationship management solutions providing high functionality and flexibility” said Germain. “The solution provides an easy transition path for the thousands of organizations struggling with aging, patch-worked legacy systems and seamlessly delivers the power and reach of the internet to further enhance their effectiveness.”

“As non-profits transition their business processes to flexible IT systems, they rely heavily on their solution partners to guide them through the process and look to them to streamline implementation and update the solutions to be ‘future proof’,” said Beck. “The 90 percent customer retention rate and fact that more than 500 iMIS users have grown with the software for more than 10 years speaks for itself. ASI is a company that invests in its customers and truly cares about their business objectives.”

Also joining the company in business development roles are Gail Judd and Debbe Gordon. Judd will focus on expanding iMIS 15 adoption in California while Gordon will focus on the Chicagoland area. An accomplished professional, Judd has worked with foundations, food banks, hospitals and other charity and public interest organizations, providing leadership to enable these groups to utilize technology to increase donations, manage their web communities, grow their membership base and manage data efficiently. Gordon has a deep background providing financial and regulatory compliance, procurement, and CRM solutions for enterprise-level organizations.
