Both I4A-MEMBERSHIP™ and I4A-ENTERPRISE™ are cloud based, licensed software as a service. All you need is an internet connection. The licensing includes software support and upgrades. Since it's a hosted solution we take care of hardware, PCI compliance (for e-commerce), backups, maintenance and security.
I4A-MEMBERSHIP™ is content and database management combined with the two components integrated. This permits you to restrict content not just to your membership but to any group or subdivision of your membership. Not only do you manage your content and navigation, but unlike nearly all other software the "design" or "theme" whichever you prefer to call it, can also be fully administered through the web admin interface. You can completely control the look and feel of your site. This allows you to select the designer of your choice for either the best price or the best design. You can have micro-sites; multiple designs within a single instance of the software, each with its own web address, navigation and theme for chapters or other special interest groups within your organization.
It includes five families of fully responsive designs, complete with graphics and images, free as part of your installation.
The database management includes: applications, renewals, meeting registrations, membership profile editing, miscellaneous forms and member directories. It supports GROUPS for content, registrations, discussion forums, calendar entries and the like. It also includes an image library, resource directory, calendar and certifications management.

There are also add-on features for: discussion forums, abstract submissions, product sales, online journals, classified and banner ads and more.
