Native joins forces with Membership Solutions Ltd to bring market leading events tools to Students’ Unions
Native is proud to announce a new partnership with Membership Solutions Ltd (MSL) which will enable Students’ Unions to have access to native’s best-in-class events technology as a unique plug-in to their existing MSL platform.
This will be a free, optional upgrade for MSL clients providing them with a range of new features such as digital wristbands, a brand new scanning system, social media integration and a host of digital marketing tools.
Native is a platform designed to connect students with amazing experiences and was built out of a passion to help students have the best time at university.
The idea came to life when native’s CEO, Nick Musto, realised that finding the best event or experience was near impossible amongst a sea of information at university. Native was the simple solution to this problem.
It has now evolved into empowering over 75 Students’ Unions with technology and services designed to bring more content onto campuses and allow students to seamlessly engage with it.
Since the start of the pandemic, native have brought over 1400 individual hybrid or content-based shows to the university space – ranging from popular quiz nights with Ru Paul’s Drag Race, DJ sets from the likes of BBC R1‘s Annie Mac and Sigma, Q&A talks with Fyre Festival’s Andy King and more.
The MSL System® helps students’ organisations provide more engaging and effective services for their members at every point of the student journey. Flexible and configurable, the MSL System is driven by the dynamic student data which lies at its heart to provide the best possible digital engagement opportunities.
Since 2005, the MSL System has supported students' organisations, HE and FE institutions of all sizes in the UK, Ireland, Australia and the UAE with a personalised online experience for their members. As a subsidiary of the Warwick Students' Union group, MSL has grown out of the students' union movement and its digital engagement solutions have been developed to support the evolving student experience. Today, over 50% of all higher education students in the UK have access to information and services made available through the MSL System.
“We’re really excited to be partnering with the great team at MSL to help streamline the process for ticketing and event management on campuses. Our plug-in will allow SUs to easily add native’s event technology to their membership ecosystem and help give them the information and data they need to drive student engagement. This partnership will give Students’ Unions a whole host of new tools to rebuild revenue post-covid and ensure the best experience for their members.” - Nick Musto, native CEO.
“MSL is delighted to be working with native on this fantastic solution. Our work together means MSL clients can now use the innovative students specific events platform from native whilst maintaining the incredibly rich engagement data the MSL System provides to support their day to day activities and future plans. Most importantly it furthers the great student experience MSL enables for our clients.” - Gary Bryant, MSL Chief Executive.
