February 22, 2007 (Boca Raton, FL) Accrisoft Corporation, a leading provider of web empowerment software for small and medium sized organizations, announced today that the Rosenthal JCC of Northern Westchester (www.rosenthaljcc.org) Accrisoft-powered website has been named Website of the Month for February 2007 by the Jewish Community Center Association of North America (JCCA).
“The JCC Association is eager to encourage JCCs to make their websites more functional and dynamic,” said JCC Association Senior Vice-president, Marketing and Communications, Robin Ballin, “and the Website of the Month is one way to do that. We believe that the web is the future of communications for JCCs, and we appreciate Accrisoft’s role in helping JCCs effectively reach their audiences.”
The Rosenthal JCC helps build a vibrant and caring community, offering Jewish learning and celebrations, early childhood programs, summer camps, after-school activities, sport leagues, cultural programs, and social services such as early intervention and referrals or counseling.
“With multiple locations and a wide variety of program offerings, effective communication with members and the general community is paramount,” said Executive Director, Ellie Aronowitz. “The Accrisoft platform makes it easy for us to distribute information to many different audiences. Accrisoft helped us design a user-friendly and well-organized site where program information and calendars of events are easy to find. The platform also enables us to send email newsletters to members or people who have requested the newsletters, and to upload photo albums.”
Industry-leading Accrisoft Freedom™ web empowerment software™, designated by JCCA as a Preferred Vendor of web development and content management solutions for Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) across the country, provides a versatile yet cost-effective web platform for JCCs and other non-profit organizations that want to transform a cost center into a revenue-generating tool.
“We needed maximum flexibility—including the ability to display different calendars of events, to match and change photographs on the mastheads of each page, and to create targeted mailing lists, for instance— along with the top-quality security demanded in today’s information age,” said President, Naomi Marrow. “Accrisoft enables secure financial transactions for online registration and online donations, and also builds in a workflow approval process that provides internal checks and balances.”
“Web interactions are not an option in today’s world,” said Marketing Chair, Jessica Morgenthal. “Since going public with our website in November, the Rosenthal JCC has seen more-than-anticipated web traffic, proving yet again that people are, without a doubt, seeking information online. We continue to receive more and more online registrations and inquiries. For the Rosenthal JCC, our Internet presence had to be both affordable and top-quality, and that is what Accrisoft has afforded us."
As part of its website update, the Rosenthal JCC posted its program directory online, enabling members to easily access information about all of its events and programs using the JCC website. For faster information location, users can search for and filter topics by various categories. For example, a parent looking for programs for a second-grade child could refine the search, filtering by age or grade. The Rosenthal JCC also added e-commerce capabilities that enable e-philanthropy and online donations, online registration for programs, and online membership registration and renewal.
Accrisoft Corporation President and CEO, Jeff Kline, said, "We are excited that the JCCA has selected the Accrisoft-empowered Rosenthal JCC website as Website of the Month for February. We are proud of the success that has been made possible through our partnership with the JCC umbrella organization. This award signals that Accrisoft Freedom delivers exactly what today’s JCCs require when it comes to extending processes and resources to the web.”
Kline continued, “JCCs represent a special area of expertise for Accrisoft. We have created a unique solution to help JCCs optimize their websites to maximize resources, increase member service, accelerate ROI, and take full advantage of the power of the web. Accrisoft Freedom has been selected by the JCCA as a Preferred Vendor, underscoring how Accrisoft Freedom web empowerment software can help JCCs create, build, and maintain professional websites that help them drive ROI. Clearly, the Rosenthal JCC provides a winning model of what a JCC website can be.”
