July 2018 Newsletter


NOAH AMS Upgrade

In late summer we will be releasing the first major update to the NOAH AMS since 2010, with all new fully mobile responsive functionality. The core functionality of the NOAH AMS will remain unchanged, thus there will not be a learning curve necessary to continue using it as you do today. All of the pages will now utilize mobile responsive versions of the display and edit controls, to not only be more mobile friendly but to also give it a fresh appearance. There will also be some additional user control over the displays, giving you more power to personalize the NOAH AMS with your preferences. We are targeting late August for this release.

Statistical Dashboard Release

New functionality alert! In September we will be releasing the user-configurable statistical dashboards in NOAH AMS. As a NOAH AMS user, you will now be able to add widgets to your dashboard pages and configure them using the advanced query and filtering options available. This means you can compare year-over-year statistics in a side-by-side basis with counts, percentages, multi-bar and multi-line chart displays. Did we mention you can also view them on your smartphones and tablets as well?



The countdown continues! Only THREE MONTHS until the 2018 NOAH User Group Conference in Crystal City, Virginia!

During the two-day event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn, network and collaborate with the JL Systems team, our partners and fellow NOAH users from across the country.

  • Welcome Session: Optimizing Your NOAH AMS Support Relationship presented by our President & CEO Jon Danforth and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s Executive Director Chad Rummel.

NOAH AMS Creates Personalized Member Experience for SPSP

The Society of Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) is the world’s largest organization of social and personality psychologists. The small staff association previously relied on various peripheral technology to manage its educational events, donations, awards programs and career center. However, like many other associations come to realize, this style of management proved to be costly and time consuming.

SPSP turned to JL Systems for much needed help. In a two-phased approach, we facilitated the implementation of the following modules: Membership, Meetings and Events, Job Board, Presenter Center, Exhibitor Management and Governance. NOAH AMS’ modules and functionalities have increased SPSP’s donations by 500 percent! And, because of the personalization during the member registration process, the association has seen a significant uptick in participation at its events.

Would you like to highlight your association’s success with NOAH AMS? Let us know at noah@jlsystems.com.
