Bridging Gaps Through Technology



Abila is one of the top association vendors in the industry. Their netFORUM Enterprise system represent one of the top association management systems (AMS) for enterprise level associations. With over 15 years in the industry, netFORUM Enterprise offers a rich feature set for associations.

As Abila partners and with a team that has hands-on netFORUM research and development experience since the inception of the application, fusionSpan is intimately aware of how to leverage netFORUM Enterprise. Knowledge we would love to impart onto you! Our partnership with Abila enables us to stay up-to-date on the latest product features, while our team’s history with the system ensures we can help regardless of which version you are using. That knowledge, combined with our business prowess, helps you get the most out of netFORUM Enterprise.

Customizations

Extending netFORUM Enterprise ensures your business needs are met. Customizations can save staff time, improve customer experience, and benefit your organization in the long run. All customizations are built following best practice to make upgrading easier and keep you as close to baseline as possible.

Business Analysis

Have you been using your database for a while but don’t feel that you’re getting the most out of the system? We’ll help review your current system and processes to provide strategic feedback and ensure that you’re using it to its potential.

Upgrades

Moving to a new version of netFORUM takes effort – reviewing baseline, checking customizations, testing SOPs. While Abila will support the system, we can bring in our team to work with your staff during the testing process. Are there new features that allow you to move to baseline? Who is responsible for sign-off? How will you determine if you are ready to upgrade? We can ensure you are ready to move forward.

eWeb Development

Often overlooked, eWeb offers a great deal of functionality out of the box. We can take that baseline site, and mold it to match your organization, allowing you to leverage the functionality for which you are paying. Stuck on an old version? We can help upgrade to the new responsive eWeb, either restyling custom pages or updating the baseline pages.

Integrations

Having to complete duplicate data entry in multiple systems? fusionSpan can integrate your database with your website, your eMarketing system or another tool using the system’s API. We’ve even built an app that gives you and your members access to member information right out of your database onto their mobile devices.

Implementations

New to netFORUM? fusionSpan is an Abila implementation partner who can get you all set up on the system. We’ll analyze your business requirements and identify the best way to meet them in netFORUM. This can be particularly advantageous for associations also looking to update their CMS, as our team can also support that process, so you don’t have to worry about managing multiple vendors and can focus on a successful implementation..

Application Assessmentns

fusionSpan can help ensure that your implementation of netFORUM follows industry best practices to better secure your membership data. Proper system configuration, penetration testing, and static code analysis provides insights that allow your association to better understand your netFORUM Implementation’s attack surface, that fusionSpan can help remediate..

System Performance

Could your implementation of netFORUM use a little performance boost? fusionSpan can help by A) tuning netFORUM’s configuration, B) implementing techniques that are known to improve performance, and C) monitoring and analyzing your servers and applications to identify bottlenecks that can be later addressed and deployed.

netFORUM-CMS INTEGRATION

While netFORUM’s eWeb has a lot of in-built functionality, it will always struggle to be a full replacement for your content management system (CMS). At the same time, most CMS tools are not designed to handle complicated transactions, multiple line-item invoices, multi-currency or member discounts. And if they do, getting the information back into netFORUM becomes a challenge.

Instead, organizations can leverage their website to integrate with netFORUM and provide their members with a better user experience. Engaging content lives on the CMS side, while complicated transactions get processed on the eWeb side. While this integration is possible with any website, one popular platform we would recommend organizations consider WordPress or Drupal CMS.
