Untitled designWe are very pleased to announce FOS Open Scouting in Belgium has chosen our system to help make their administration easier at all levels of their Dutch speaking organisation.

FOS Open Scouting is a Scout and Guide organisation who are part of the national Guiding and Scouting federation in Belgium. All children and young people from the age of six are welcome in FOS.

FOS chose our membership platform due to the features available out of the box for their whole organisation, from parents and members to leaders and head office staff. Our system has been designed for the complex hierarchical needs of youth organisations with a focus on time saving features from ground level to the head office.

‘’FOS Open Scouting has been looking to replace the current, outdated membership system for a new one since 2016. We chose OYM because of the plethora of features available to members, parents, leaders and the head office. Features we wouldn’t be able to have if we went for a bespoke system.

 Working with OYM has been great. We had a lot of questions and they were always answered very quickly. We hope the system can make administration easier for our groups while the head office has all information they need to keep the organisation on the right track.’’ Explains Thomas de Wulf, FOS ICT Project Manager.

This is a significant milestone for Online Youth Manager as FOS become the first non-English speaking organisation to use our membership platform as their national system.

‘’Working together we have developed the system to be fully translatable and easily supported.’’ Comments Zoe Chamberlain, Online Youth Manager Marketing Manager.

‘’We’re really looking forward to the launch of the system for FOS and to helping more non-English speaking youth organisations in the future.’’

Online Scout Manager for FOS Open Scouting will officially launch in the coming months. Find out more about FOS Open Scouting on their website:
