October 22, 2020
Billhighway, the leading financial management platform dedicated to component-based organizations, is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) and StarChapter. The comprehensive financial solution streamlines chapter accounting, banking, and member management processes, giving chapter leaders more time to focus on programming initiatives and delivering value to their members at a chapter level.

SMPS’ mission is to advocate for, educate, and connect marketing and business development leaders in the architecture, engineering, and construction (A/E/C) industries. With a vision to transform business through marketing leadership, SMPS’ nearly 60 chapters are comprised of a diverse community of professionals working together to move the A/E/C industries forward. SMPS provides their over 7,000 members with leadership and professional development programs, industry research, business-building events, and vital marketing resources.

Billhighway’s full-service suite of technologies will automate accounting and banking workflows to provide chapters with real-time reporting visibility and quick, secure access to funds. Designed for the unique demands of component-based groups, Billhighway maximizes financial management with in-person payment capabilities, hassle-free expense management tools, a personalized member experience, and more. In addition, StarChapter, an association management software for local chapters of professional and trade associations, has worked with SMPS since 2018 providing chapters with tools to manage event registration, membership, email marketing, and consistently branded website layouts to strengthen the association as a whole.

“Through our new partnership with Billhighway we aim to eliminate manual processes and simplify the day-to-day administrative tasks that burden our chapter leaders,” said SMPS Chief Financial Officer, Antonio Payne. “Leveraging a reliable, end-to-end financial system empowers our chapters to keep their goal of delivering a superior member experience.”

Simplifying administrative workloads, Billhighway seamlessly integrates with StarChapter (SMPS’ chapter AMS). Working together, the automated integration settles and reconciles transactions to provide a unified financial view. With chapter finances all in one place, chapters can make accurate, data-driven decisions and leverage easy-to-use expense management tools that eliminate burdensome manual processes.

“Billhighway is thrilled to partner with the Society for Marketing Professional Services to support HQ and their chapters in optimizing operations to better serve members and grow revenue,” said Billhighway Director of Growth, Mark Prevost. “We are dedicated to continuing to equip associations with transformational tools that elevate association performance, increase retention, and fuel member engagement.”

Billhighway brings decades of experience in serving component-based organizations and solving the unique data and financial challenges of chapter leaders, volunteers, and members.

“StarChapter is happy to continue building our relationship with the Society for Marketing Professional Services to help the local chapter leaders save time and get better results for their chapters,” said StarChapter President, Allan Cohen. “At StarChapter we thrive off of our role in helping associations drive professionalism, provide advocacy, advance careers, and develop leaders. We do this by helping volunteer leaders of professional and trade associations at the local level grow their membership while saving them time on administrative tasks and providing services to maximize their efforts.”
