Spring ’21 Major Features
One Payment – Community Hub
Nimble AMS makes it easy and convenient for members to pay off outstanding orders and balances through Community Hub. With our easy to use One Payment functionality, your staff will spend less time following up on open orders as members can pay off multiple orders all with a single payment! And Company Managers will also enjoy the same simple functionality as they manage paying off orders and balances for their company account.
One Payment – Staff View Improvements
We have made a number of improvements to enhance functionality and improve staff user experience. Improvements include the expanded flexibility of the option to choose a manual batch when applying payment to orders, the ability to add a company account as payer and much more! The feature is now officially in Beta and available for anyone to enable. Check out the One Payment – Staff View release notes for more information.
Our new API documentation resource site provides developers a wide range of information to help them better leverage and extend Nimble AMS! We are introducing new APIs that are now available through this new site, and we have moved existing APIs to this new, easier to read format. Also new and available for the first time is a Cookbook section designed to give developers easy to follow recipes to help jump start their work, and our Nimble AMS Apex Style guide to help you adhere to best practice coding standards when developing with Nimble AMS.
Cross Entity Coupon
Nimble AMS now supports cross entity coupon feature which will allow associations to apply coupon on cross entity products and necessary inter-entity transactions are automatically generated based on the entity crossover.
Coupons are a driving force in commerce that connects people and their wallets to brands. Associations utilize coupons to attract new members, keep current customers coming back, and/or to reward customers for actions taken.
Using entity crossovers, you can manage multiple financial entities within your single instance of Nimble AMS. For example: your Association, Foundation and/or Political Action Committee (PAC). When entity crossovers are set-up, products from multiple entities can be processed in a single order, and when a payment is applied to the order, any necessary inter-entity transactions are automatically generated based on the entity crossover. The entity crossover specifies the due-to and due-from general ledger (GL) accounts for the entities.
Cancel Membership Mid-Term
Associations sometimes need to cancel a membership part-way through a member’s term and issue a refund without backing out recognized revenue for the previously recognized months of the membership term.
Nimble AMS supports full membership cancellation and refunding the money back with a simple interface your staff can easily follow. This does reverse the financial entries made around deferred revenue and recognized revenue. With this feature we are now providing an ability for staff to easily process a membership mid term cancellation and reconcile the term and money automatically.
