GroupAhead Overview

What is GroupAhead?

GroupAhead is a user engagement solution that provides organizations with their own dedicated smartphone and tablet app. The platform serves member-based organizations of all types including professional associations, interest clubs, schools and universities, societies, non-profits, sports clubs and teams, and more.

GroupAhead’s single-purpose mobile app focuses solely on connecting and engaging an organization's members, aiming to boost member involvement, retention and event attendance. The app provides a place for members to post and share photos, as well as join group conversations. The events calendar sends out push reminders for members to RSVP and attend upcoming meetings or events. Users can create subgroups for specific teams, as well as send private messages to any member.

Integration with Stripe enables organizations to collect payments, allowing members to pay membership dues, event cover fees, make donations, and more. Users can customize the member directory and add custom profile fields, as well as bulk import an existing member list. All custom mobile apps are brandable with the organization's own icon, loading screen, and more. Push notifications notify users of any new posts, events, and other activity. Administrators can manage members, viewing stats, and more from any web browser.

Additional GroupAhead features include calendar syncing with iCal and Google Calendar, emailed reports for analytics, moderation controls, and custom links to the app. All apps are secured with 256-bit SSL encryption, and run on both iOS and Android platforms. Once the app is ready, GroupAhead submits it to Apple’s App Store and Google Play store for download.

This App ROCKS!

The First Heavy Metal Church of Christ uses this app to communicate with our church members. Its primary use is to secure our ever growing need for volunteers. It has also been helpful for people who choose to donate through the app instead of dropping money in the plate. It has made church-wide communication simple, easy and fun.

Great product, even better people

Group Ahead's app product is easy to use and has been a home-run for our organization. Our people love the ease of use and the functionality. It is simple and not intimidating for older users and familiar and recognizably designed for mobile use for our younger users. We love it and would recommend it for folks like us.

Versatile and Easy

I’ll miss this App! I found it useful for so many purposes to maintain connectivity between our members. With this application, it enabled us to communicate with membership with such diverse reasons as meeting notifications, security and safety concerns, weather warnings and Neighborhood Watch. I will personally miss having it available to use.

Easy template and Great customer support!
Went into this with no experience concerning mobile apps. Super fast and easy. pleasantly surprised. Reasonable pricing and stellar tech support makes this company a winner. I would recommend Groupahead to any one. This app has made it easy and fun for our teens to connect and stay updated on all our events.

We love GroupAhead

Our members enjoy posting things, especially pictures, and enjoy reading each others' posts. They also like have everyone's contact info at their fingertips. The administrative functions are easy to use. The customer support is excellent, and are really responsive to new feature requests. The features and functionality are continuously improving.

Pros

It enables me to grab my phone and reach almost 600 people in an instant.

Cons

I am truly happy with everything. It would be cool if a DONATE button could be out in the open instead of hidden in the menu but that is truly all I can come up with.

Response from GroupAhead

Thank you for the kind words, Brian!

Good feedback about the Donate button. Next version of the app should make the main menu a little less buried, though still would be cool to raise the visibility of the Donate button further.
