Founded in 1990 by a small group of classic car enthusiasts in Turkey, Classic Car Club has reached 700 members today. The Club summarise its purpose as the following: “We desire to bring people together who have a lively interest for classic cars and especially for those who had some special features according to the era to which they belong. We want that they come together and exchange their ideas about these special cars.”
The Club, under the presidency of Aydın Harazi, a business man who is passionate about classic cars, organize three rallies per year as Spring Rally, West Anatolia Rally and Republic Rally. In addition to create an opportunity of meeting for classical auto enthusiasts, it aims to draw attention to public issues like the vitality of the protection of olive trees in West Anatolia.
Cooperation with Raklet
The Club decided to start using Raklet in 2015 with the aim of communicating with its members in a more efficient way, tracking member payments more appropriately and organizing their events more easily. Zeynep Tura Kalın, the general secretary of the Club, explains how the process has improved since then:
“Raklet is a very user friendly software. Making announcements to our members, inviting them to our events or collecting/tracking membership fee payments via the system is quite easy. It also makes it possible to communicate with the audience apart from our members. It is a big advantage that our members can also login to the system and update their profiles. As a cloud platform, it facilitates all the processes by eliminating the dependence to a physical place and specific times. In the case we need support, Raklet team is always ready to help. We are very happy to use this platform and we want to use it even more efficiently in the forthcoming days.”
120% revenue growth after the first year
One of the most vital features of Raklet is the opportunity to have detailed reports where you can see the results of your strategies.
Classic Car Club has witnessed this reality by a revenue growth more than doubled within one year. And it’s also worth to mention that, after having sent debt reminder emails to its members, the Club collected $900 in the first fifteen minutes.
