Abila netFORUM Enterprise

netFORUm is generally good for small to medium membership organizations but can definitely pose problems in the amount of data and the reporting tools as the membership grows.

Pros

  • Can store a lot of information. There are many different modules and each module has a lot of spaces for details such as birthday, gender, spouse and children's names, emergency contact information, photos and more.
  • Can be linked to our internal systems. Our awards system is run through our organization's website but the winners are sent to netFORUM so that their records indicate the awards and distinctions they have achieved without us having to manually enter all of these.
  • Can provide a lot of reporting information which is useful for data collection or year-end reporting needs.

  • Intuitive backend of website makes updating content easy.
  • Seamless integration between membership registration platform and events module.
  • Best customer service of any technology company I've ever worked with. Daily Q&A session with their experts.

Cons

  • The queries and reports are not user-friendly. One really needs to understand the search terminology to run queries and reports.
  • There is no way to prevent duplicates so if someone enters an updated address for a member but creates a new record instead of updating the current record, there are now two records for that person which makes some of the data difficult to sift through.
  • Linking members to their organization is difficult because if someone enters an organization slightly differently from the way it is registered in netFORUM, the person will not be linked to the organization and the reports that say how many members come from a specific institution is now inaccurate.

  • Native email marketing system lacks analytics that I'm looking for.
  • Unable to use events module with 3rd party registration platforms.
  • Unable to integrate other email marketing platforms with YourMembership.

Alternatives Considered

netFORUM is better at data collection and support for the price.

  • Our membership numbers have doubled in the past two years using YourMembership.
  • The number of enrolled participants in our educational workshops has increased steadily each year.
  • The annual users conference hosted by YourMembership gives me even greater opportunities to learn how to best maximize the platform for our members.
