Table Control Membership Screen Postcode Search
Cut member entry times
MemSec Table Control
A form of postcode search has been available in Memsec Table Control for some time. Until now though this required the purchase of an annual PAF licence from the Post Office. The database was then stored in a very large file on your main Memsec computer and had to be updated every quarter. All in all this was a costly and cumbersome process which meant it was a viable option for a just a handful of our busiest customers.
Thankfully that’s now changed and you can now take out a monthly subscription as a bolt-on to your Memsec licence. The postcode facility is still provided by the same specialist supplier, Hopewiser, who are market leaders in this field, but instead of having to pay annually and store the data you access their online database as and when you need it.
All you need to do is type in the member’s postcode in Memsec as before, then click on the ‘Find’ button to look up their full address. All matching addresses are listed instantaneously and you just have to click on the correct one in the list or type in the house number. So much less typing for you or your staff to do means a much quicker and more accurate process. We believe this will cut the time taken to enter a new member or guest into Memsec by more than half.
Memsec7 Member Entry Postcode Search
Use online look-up to save time
Memsec7 has also adopted the new Hopewiser online postcode search facility. It works in much the same way as Memsec Table Control by offering a ‘Lookup’ button for you to click once a postcode has been entered.
Where Table Control lets you type in the house number if a postcode corresponds to a street address, Memsec7 presents all addresses as a list, meaning even less typing is required and so even less scope for error.
Memsec7’s remote office functionality also means that if you have a pile of membership forms to enter you can do that wherever and whenever you have the time and a computer with Memsec7 installed. The postcode search works on any computer with an internet connection, which of course is also necessary for Memsec7 to connect.
