Eleven years ago, Dmitry Buterin began to dream of a world where everyone involved in a membership organization could spend their time pursuing their purpose, instead of getting bogged down in administrative tasks. That’s when he decided to create software that could do all the tasks better suited for robots.
Today, we are a team of over 100 staff, providing an all-in-one membership management platform to thousands of nonprofit organizations across the globe. Every month we spend over $250,000 on software development and have launched over 60 releases to date.
And so it’s with great joy that we once again get to celebrate claiming the number one spot of the Top 20 Most Popular Membership Management Software Solutions from Capterra, a company that reviews membership management software.
As Rachel Wille, Senior Product Research Analyst at Capterra, explains, “Capterra's Market Score, a measurement of non-revenue based market dominance, determines the rankings.” Wild Apricot’s number of customers and members are weighted at 40% and our social channels and Capterra Reviews are ranked at 20% to achieve a score of 66, the highest of any membership management software on the market.
Here are the numbers which have given us the top position for the seventh time in a row:
Total Customers: 19,500
Total Members: 7,900,000
Total Reviews on Capterra: 331
Total Facebook Likes: 6,015
Total LinkedIn Followers: 2,197
Total Twitter Followers: 2,081
While it gives us great joy to be number one in popularity, we also recognize that peer recommendations are also a very strong endorsement. In fact, most of our customers have come to us through word of mouth and review sites like Capterra.
Everyday we hear how Wild Apricot has been a life changer from people like Kathy Araujo, the Webmaster of The American Women’s Group in Paris.
“Because our club is short-staffed, Wild Apricot has been a lifesaver! It saves me over 20 hours a week and their support has been fantastic!"
And so, we aspire to keep offering great software and remaining the most popular membership management software on the market. Part of how we plan on doing this is to always put our customer’s needs first, by developing our most requested customer features as voted on in our WishList forum.
A big thank you to our customers who have made us the most popular membership management software.
