About 18 years ago…
I myself assumed responsibility as a member of the Executive Board of an association with around 40 employees, which was in the midst of a difficult restructuring phase. A first wave of layoffs had previously affected younger employees in particular based on the social criteria. We now repeatedly lacked their know-how and capacity for various project tasks. Therefore, when I was looking for qualified external support, I realized that there were virtually no service providers and consultants specializing in associations….
Thus the idea for Verbandplus was born: But it still took some time until the implementation followed. When I did not agree on strategic issues with my supervisory board at a later stage, the dismissal and foundation of Verbandplus followed.

The Plus of Verbandplus
How to run an international association with a volunteer board of directors without having to establish and maintain your own branch office.
A breath of fresh air for your association – update quickly and securely without large budgets by integrating your know-how.
How to organise your association’s membership administration securely and efficiently without having to invest in an expensive IT and software solution.
How to activate the potential of the voluntary work in the association and use this leverage to dramatically increase in your market presence.
We always give a little more than you expect because of our conviction! Just the Plus of Verbandplus.
With our customers, we are often connected by a long-term cooperation from different projects, as we carry out tasks as an outsourcing partner and are regularly involved in the implementation and risk. In doing this, we are united by an approach that is optimised from a business management point of view and the common conviction that the needs of our members come first.
What our customers say about us:
»As an association, we need project-related support from time to time in order to integrate external know-how and/or to be able to cushion capacity bottlenecks. This is where the experts from Verbandplus can provide us with fast and reliable support.«
»International consulting projects not only requires professional know-how but also intercultural sensitivity, a functioning network and a critical eye for what is feasible. In all these aspects, Verbandplus was consistently able to convince us.«
»As a globally positioned association of the printing industry, we have been relying on the service of the virtual office of Verbandplus for more than 4 years, and have been particularly convinced by their experience in the multinational environment, their reliability and the ability to implement individual solutions.«
»Verbandplus has provided us with excellent support in the selection and implementation of our central association software; a software that has been continuously developed over the last few years and which still today – after 10 years – reliably enables us to carry out our daily association work. The customized and cost-effective solution that Verbandplus has developed justifies the use and costs of the professional consultancy.«
»The previous time-consuming collection of the membership fee is now efficiently and competently carried out by Verbandplus via SEPA direct debit for our international member base. This has significantly reduced the workload of our office. The time gained in this way is now available for the association’s work. Decisive factors for the change to Verbandplus were not only the costs but also the simple data transfer and online access to the master data for our chairpersons.«
