PipelinePros, the Oracle Commerce User Group, to be Managed by Associations International
(LEXINGTON, KY. February 21, 2017) – PipelinePros, the Oracle Commerce User Group, is pleased to announce that effective February 2017, the user group will be managed by Associations International (AI), a leading association management company based in Lexington, Kentucky. AI successfully manages several associations, including Quest, one of Oracle’s largest and most successful umbrella user groups.
PipelinePros, the Oracle Commerce User Group, was founded in June 2016 when a group of customers, partners and Oracle representatives wanted to create a place to come together for networking and education related to Oracle Commerce products. The purpose of the group is to unite the Commerce user base, share best practice, lessons learned and influence Oracle’s product direction.
“As a group we felt that due to the rapidly evolving technology landscape it was difficult for Oracle Commerce users to navigate on their own and we needed the ability to better leverage our Oracle investment,” said David Lyle, Founding Member and Chairman, PipelinePros.
“As a start-up, we needed an association management company that could provide resources we didn’t have and expertise in managing user groups,” Lyle said. “Additionally, AI has been extremely successful in managing Quest and we are thrilled that we can partner with Associations International.”
AI is recognized as industry leader in helping professional and trade associations build membership, promote their missions, and seize opportunities for growth. Headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky for more than 40 years, AI employs 130 association professionals. Associations International is accredited by the AMC Institute, the global trade association representing the association management industry.
