Nonprofit jumpstarts digital transformation with custom community portal designed and developed without code.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Skuid, the leading cloud application platform, today announced

that the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the world's first and largest professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research, selected the Skuid no-code platform to transform its member portal and streamline its onboarding and renewal processes.

The AACR team selected Skuid to create a tailor-made portal, dramatically improving the features, reliability, and maintenance ease of Skuid, as compared to their previous portal. With a member base of more than 37,000 healthcare professionals and patient advocates spread across more than 100 countries, AACR needed the new member portal to connect more intimately with their constituents, connecting them to their strategy and mission.

"As a major organization with a global member base, we needed a reliable and effective way to manage member data, communicate with and unite our members behind the cause," said John McKenney, Architect at AACR. "We created a portal with Skuid to deliver exactly what our members needed to onboard and renew, while giving our teams the ability to maintain and iterate features with ease. Now we can be so much more efficient, drawing our members together to achieve more."

The new portal—built with Skuid in just two weeks—can be easily maintained by AACR staff without writing code. The portal connects to the existing AACR tech stack and back-end systems to streamline the administrative tasks associated with onboarding and renewal processes. The Skuid drag-and-drop platform provides a simple and intuitive interface for users and administrators, saving time and increasing operational efficiency.

"This is what it's all about for us—solving real human needs," said Ken McElrath, founder and CEO of Skuid. "Applications truly can cure human pain, if they are designed from a human-centric perspective. It's so awesome that AACR can now focus more on the needs of its members and advocacy, rather than getting bogged down in cumbersome technology. And together we all get closer to finding a cure for cancer."
