COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Protech Associates, Inc. (Protech) and Higher Logic, the leading industry provider of cloud-based community platforms, announce an elevated partnership to develop a seamless integration between Higher Logic's community platform and Protech Cloud Business Solutions, Protech's cloud-based association management software (AMS) powered by Microsoft Dynamics® CRM. With this new agreement, Protech Cloud Business Solutions customers that are using Higher Logic will have out-of-the-box managed and supported product integration with future upgrades.
"Our partnership with Protech provides great opportunities for associations to implement effective and long-lasting member management and engagement strategies," said Mark Lowry, CRO at Higher Logic. "Both Higher Logic and Protech are cloud-based platforms that together offer a centralized and comprehensive software package for any organization looking to improve the overall member experience."
Higher Logic's community platform drives collaboration, ignites conversations and creates an invaluable knowledge base for members. Protech's cloud-based member management solutions are designed to help organizations develop and maintain lasting member relationships, increase productivity, reduce costs and grow revenue streams. This newly expanded partnership allows organizations to easily take advantage of both companies' offerings without the need for expensive, one-time customization projects. Going forward, Protech and Higher Logic will work closely to identify opportunities to add more value and capabilities to the combined solution.
Brian Bruffey, CEO, Protech, said, "Protech strives to provide our customers with not only a proven and reliable software solution, but also one that will easily grow as their associations grow. Expanding our partnership with Higher Logic means that the integration between the two systems will happen on a development level, instead of during individual customization projects, creating a clear path for future upgrades and ensuring association managers receive the greatest value from their technology solutions."
As a further demonstration of confidence in Higher Logic, Protech will be deploying the Higher Logic platform for the Protech User Group (PUG). The collaboration community is meant to encourage collaboration, interaction and engagement among users, helping them to increase their knowledge base and share ideas.
