    More on technology and the future of your society…

    I received a fair number of responses to a recent post on technology issues (“Climbing the Ladder, drinking the Lemonade, and looking for a safe Haven…”).  A few brave souls posted their comments on the web site, others emailed them to me privately, and still others shared their thoughts through third parties (“Please let Joe know that I think he’s crazy”).

    Fair enough.

    But I received one response from an associate member of the Alliance, Intellect SEEC (not surprisingly, a technology firm) that I’d like to share with you. This post is not an “infomercial” or an “advertorial.” This blog is, was, and always well be endorsement-free. But when smart people make intelligent observations about an issue on which I am not an expert, I tend to want to pass those comments on to my readers.

    The ideas laid out in this response made sense to me – a person whose understanding of technology is dangerously shallow – and seemed applicable to virtually any size society in any stage of evaluating its technology needs. So I’m sharing it with you on that basis. Take it for what’s it worth and use it as you see fit, no matter what your current system’s capabilities or what consultant or vendor your society happens to be working with.

    1. Your blog “attachment” titled “this response,” made abundant sense, especially the paragraph titled “Think Omnichannel.” This observation coming from a technology novice.

    2. I definitely agree. If fraternals cannot retain and build their membership, they will slowly but eventually be unable to fulfill both their missions, fraternal and financial.
