YMCA of Greater San Antonio migrates to ACTIVE Net

We’re excited to announce that one of our largest YMCA customers, the YMCA of Greater San Antonio, is migrating from Class® software  to ACTIVE Net™ so that their staff can operate more efficiently and create an awesome member experience by providing easy access to its activities, like spring flag football, boot camp and swim lessons, online.

I sat down with Liesien Benet, Vice President of IT at the YMCA of Greater San Antonio, to understand how this technology can help her staff better engage with their 50,000+ members.

Liesien said that with ACTIVE Net, “The YMCA of Greater San Antonio IT staff won’t have to spend the time maintaining database servers, worrying about PCI compliance or purchasing additional hardware. Our front-office staff can easily access the system anywhere at any time and can focus on creating a great member experience.”

Check out ACTIVE Net in action at YMCAs across North America, including Odessa Family YMCA in Odessa, Texas and Randolph County YMCA in Winchester, Indiana.
