And what makes us different
Why CAMS was created
Our Microsoft Business Solutions team have been working closely with the associations industry for nearly a decade. We entered the market by chance, after being commissioned to build a custom solution for one of Australia’s largest associations. During the project, we were surprised to learn that there are over 80,000 associations in Australia alone.
After some additional research, it became clear that when it came to technology, the associations sector needed a better option. Associations needed something more modern, more intelligent, and more focused on servicing the specific needs of member-based organisations. With this in mind, we began the development of a new, purpose-built solution, one that addresses the needs of associations. Enter CAMS.
Backed by the vision and power of Microsoft’s Business Applications platform, and supported by Brennan’s deep understanding of data management, we have created a solution that offers advanced capability and possibility to the associations sector. CAMS provides a better user experience for your members and easily accessed, advanced data and analytics for your staff.
Introducing our Product Advisory Board
Our Product Advisory Board was established in 2021 and is made up of a select group of experienced industry leaders: Craig Horton, Head of Technology and Digital for the Property Council of Australia, and Fabio Bastian, former CIO for Chartered Accountants ANZ and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Working closely with our CAMS team, the board has been created to help to guide the strategic direction of CAMS and drive continuous product enhancements.
Fabio is an Australian/Brazilian investor, board director and IT executive. During his career he held positions of Chief Information Officer, Chief Technology Officer, and various software engineering roles with organisations in Australia, USA and Europe.
Between 2008 and 2019, Fabio was the Chief Information Officer for two of the most prominent membership organisations in Australia: the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Chartered Accountants ANZ, where he oversaw strategic IT direction and day-to-day operational IT execution. He led the digital transformation for the AICD with development of integrated CRM, e-commerce and finance systems. At Chartered Accountants ANZ, he spearheaded the movement to improve business agility through technology.
“RANZCR was really impressed with the team when we first engaged them. They took the time to listen and understand our association and our different needs. We needed to create comprehensive reports pulling data out of the various systems, and they were able to create beautiful dashboards leveraging Microsoft Power BI; It’s early days but we are really excited with the solution the Brennan team implemented”
