YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South Launches Comprehensive Daxko Software Platform

BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - December 17, 2015) - Just months after announcing their decision to partner with Daxko on a comprehensive suite of software services for their Y, the YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South is set to wrap up their implementation and launch Daxko Operations, Daxko Engage, and Daxko Mobile software solutions as a part of their plan to serve Memphis, Tennessee and surrounding communities.

The launch of the YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South marks the 163rd launch in 2015 by the Daxko launch team. "We love working with our health and wellness partners. These organizations work to create healthier, and more vibrant communities around them every day and it's a privilege to provide industry-leading software to focus and increase those efforts," says Tyler Tumlin, Daxko Project Manager.

The YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South originally made the decision to work with Daxko in August. Leeann Buttram, Vice President of Member Services for the YMCA of Memphis & The Mid-South explained their decision to move forward with Daxko this way: "We appreciate the history and longevity Daxko has supporting the YMCA Movement through technology and we feel that Daxko has taken the time to get to know the Y, our mission and our culture. They speak our language and they know our brand." Since Daxko has an extensive track record of working with YMCAs, the Daxko implementation team was able to move the YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South quickly from signed agreement to launch day. "Because of our long partnership with health and wellness organizations like YMCAs, we understand many facets of their business model. This relationship allows us to get health and wellness organizations to their launch date more efficiently if that is their goal," Tumlin explains.
