ClubRunner Now Available in French & Spanish!

Early on last year, we announced that ClubRunner had begun to support Unicode, which meant that clubs could create their stories, news and eBulletin content in another language. In an attempt to support our International customers, ClubRunner is proud to announce that we now support the entire platform (members only area and website) in any language!

We’re excited to announce that ClubRunner is now available in French and Spanish! The first club to launch their ClubRunner website entirely in Spanish is Club Rotario de Ramos Arizpe. To view their website, click here. The first French club is the Rotary Club of Rimouski. To view their website, click here.

This upgrade will allow any club in the world to use ClubRunner in their own language. If you would like ClubRunner services customized to your language, contact us to inquire about our global translation project. Stay tuned as we launch ClubRunner in more languages in the near future!

Top 5 Advantages of the RI Database Integration

ClubRunner’s mission has always been to make technology work for anyone, anywhere, anytime impacting their work in a natural and effective way. As such, we strive to simplify everyday tasks such that club members can spend their valuable time engaging in other activities. As a result, we recently integrated our database with Rotary International. This technological merger signifies a base upon which ClubRunner will continue to grow and surpass expectations.

As a result of the RI Integration, clubs will benefit from numerous advantages. Below is simply a list of the top 5 advantages of the newly launched RI Database Integration.

1) Club members can eliminate countless hours of duplicate data entry.
2) Drastically reduce instances of human error.
3) Keep member data up-to-date in RI’s database for better communication.
4) Increase accuracy of member data while respecting privacy levels.
5) Eliminate the need to manually process and send in semi-annual reports.

With this leap towards simplified database management, clubs can ensure that the administrative overhead is reduced while the level of communication and collaboration with RI rises to a more superior level.

ClubRunner and Rotary International to Offer True Database Integration with OneRotary Initiative

Today was a great moment for Rotary Clubs worldwide using ClubRunner as the OneRotary initiative is now available for everyone. After months of testing and hand in hand collaboration with Rotary International, it was a great joy to see the initiative come together. In a joint effort to unify and streamline member records, both ClubRunner and Rotary International have been working closely for the past year to establish a secure connection to completely automate member updates while maintaining full control and privacy to Rotary clubs and districts.

Until now, all software vendors have been issuing email notifications to Rotary International’s Data Services division, resulting in countless hours of manual data entry. ClubRunner and Rotary International had a common goal to increase overall effectiveness of each club by taking away administration overhead. Each club with ClubRunner today now can worry less about data integrity between multiple databases. When a club database is updated with, for example, a member’s new contact information, that change would automatically be incorporated into RI’s database, eliminating the need for clubs to formally notify RI or make the change manually through Member Access.

ClubRunner will be updating a dedicated area within the community page this week with all the support, documentation and news related to this initiative. If there are any immediate needs or questions give our support team a call and we will be happy to direct your queries as appropriate.

This milestone for Rotary is tremendous as we enter a digital era and erroneous administration of database management will soon be the past to ClubRunner customers. Thank you to our customers who have worked with us over the past year to ensure we reach this milestone and for being dedicated to our promise to Rotary and empowering all volunteers and their commitment to service above self.
