IPA AUSTRIA: MAO - Membership Administration Online

Gerald Hatzl, IPA Austria

Dated 18-07-2017

IPA Austria has more than 31,000 members. Fourteen years ago, the section started using a Membership Administration Software and, as a result, we have gained long-term experience with this form of administration, as we have constantly updated our software. We have invested a significant amount of money in both our hardware and software.
Now our IT-team has developed a new product (MAO) together with the company MBIT Solutions. We introduced this system at the end of 2016 and now have a modern administration system at our disposal to help us manage our membership, budget and organisation.
During the Northern European Forum meeting 2016, the idea to start a software-sharing project was born, in order to make professionally-developed hard- and software affordable for small sections as well as to develop and fund new projects in cooperation with the IPA community.
This means that our software is available for any interested sections, provided they enter into a contract with our provider Netvoice Data Security as well as the software engineering company MBIT for maintaining the software.
In conjunction with both companies we have developed a highly attractive and tailor-made offer, as costs for each section depend on the number of their members plus their MAO will be hosted on a reliable and efficient component system.
Another possibility would be to buy our software, in which case you would need to contact MBIT Solution directly at
Here are a few highlights of the MAO:

  • The structure of each association can be represented
  • Safety is important: encrypted data transfer; sophisticated authorisation system
  • Flexible data handling, including online-registration
  • Easy-to-handle correspondence options
  • Generation of ready-to-use statistics
  • Cash management

To be able to share our project and new software with you, we would like to invite all sections who are interested in this project to contact us for further, more detailed information at the following email: .
