"We're proud and honored to receive these awards," said ATS Partner and General Manager Stan Pickett. "We view this recognition as a direct result of our focus on forward association trends. We know that association members have very heightened expectations when they interact with an association website. These expectations are formed by member's widespread use of the internet applications outside of the association world. For example, member’s frame of reference for online shopping carts comes from the shopper experience with such forward-thinking organizations as Amazon.com and Overstock.com. Association members then expect a similar experience with an association's website. If they can't get it, they are disappointed, which sometimes results in problems and lost business for associations to mainstream sites. ATS has focused on bringing an equally strong online experience to the association world as to the top experiences in the outside world. For example, this was our focus with our award-winning Online Marketplace solution that leverages iMIS as a foundation and builds on it to bring a high caliber shopping cart experience to associations.
