Get Paid Faster with Membee’s Renewal Automations
“Rather than spending time chasing overdue payments, we find that the majority of our members are now paying on average 30 days sooner than they were before we automated our invoicing process” says Anna Murre, the Executive Director of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce.
We can all agree that membership-based organizations are driven by memberships and sometimes, it may feel like it takes a whole lot more to get one person to simply renew AND renew on time. Do your members see the benefit of renewing? We would be spending all of our attention notifying members to renew that by the end of the day, we don’t have time for anything else!
Membee provides the best solution to ensure that members renew. Period. Even earlier than you might think, much like what the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce experienced.
What You Can Automate
Membee can take care of your full membership life cycle by automating the entire process! There are four main components that we consider to be the fundamentals of the life cycle which may be automated. These include:
- Signing up new members
- Invoicing for renewals
- Following up and sending reminders for outstanding invoices
- Cancelling membership
Let Membee Automatically Do It For You
We can’t emphasize it enough – our automation feature is a crucial part of your membership’s success and the key to receiving your revenues quicker. Membee can handle your renewal process for you so that you don’t need to make a move! Without Membee, you would be doing twice the amount of work that Membee would be doing for you.

Stop Chasing Overdue Payments!
This is exactly what Lincoln Chamber of Commerce did when they let Membee handle their renewals – stopped chasing overdue payments. Membee’s automated reminders help you stop chasing overdue payments by letting it remind members for you!
The end goal was to better delegate their limited resources to reflect how to best grow their Chamber. Membee was able to help free up their limited resources and time while increasing the speed of member renewals!
“We’re a smaller organization that has limited resources, both in terms of manpower and finances. Implementing Membee has allowed us to free up more time to spend on the tasks that bring value to our members, as well as improving our receivables and collections dramatically. Rather than spending time chasing overdue payments, we find that the majority of our members are now paying on average 30 days sooner than they were before we automated our invoicing process.”Anna Murre, Executive Director – Lincoln Chamber of Commerce
