Your success benefits everyone, and we are here to help you thrive. Heartland® offers custom-built solutions to drive revenue and boost the bottom line – no matter the size of your organization. And with the industry’s best support on their side, our customers know they can always reach us when they need assistance.

Partnerships for Associations

Partnerships for Associations

There are more than 8,000 trade and professional associations in the United States. Association members own and work in local businesses – building relationships, developing new ideas and creating jobs.

Associations that serve these entrepreneurs can provide valuable benefits which contribute to their growth and success. Additionally, association operations rely partly or wholly on membership dues and professional fees paid by their members. Collecting those payments involves time-consuming processes like recurring billing reminders, collections and accounting. These organizations must also continually reach out for new members, requiring separate processes and additional employee effort.

Our Commitment to You

Heartland is committed to helping associations and its members by offering leading business solutions that drive results, including payments processing, an integrated HR and payroll suite, point-of-sale systems and capital lending. Our mission is to provide special offers and programs along with easy-to-use learning tools designed to help you and your members make important business decisions.

Association Partnership Programs

Heartland focuses on collaborative, customized solutions that streamline payment processing and improve back-office operations. From payroll and HR processes to point-of-sale systems, marketing campaigns and capital lending, Heartland’s robust technology boosts administrative efficiency and allows owners to focus on strategic initiatives. We also provide association members with exclusive offers and programs created just for their businesses that are available exclusively through our partnership with their association. Best of all, the organizations can choose which products they offer members through the partnership. Whether it’s just one or the whole collection is entirely in your control.
