I4A software is cloud based, licensed software as a service. All that is required 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.
It can be your web site AND a membership solution combined and the two components are integrated. This permits you to restrict content to your membership or any group or subdivision of your membership.
Alternatively, if you wish, you can preserve your existing content site and use our software for its e-commerce and database features as a sub-domain. I4A offers unprecedented options for your site. Our native platform is fully responsive, or, we also have a free WordPress plug-in that supports single sign on integration for any WordPress site hosted anywhere. In many ways I4A is the ONLY comprehensive membership solution for WordPress sites.
Not only do you manage your content and navigation, but unlike nearly all other similar software the "design" or "theme" whichever you prefer to call it, can also be fully administered through the web admin interface. So, you can completely control the look and feel of your site. We offer five families of responsive design that can literally be dropped in to your site, modified for logos and colors, etc. and include free images and graphics. Use them as is, or as a jumping-off point for a custom design.
You can also have multiple designs within a single instance of the software, even micro-sites; multiple web addresses and navigation for special interest groups within your organization.

The e-commerce feature connects with your existing merchant account, includes the capability for allowing members and contacts to save a card (or ACH, e-check) on file (your database does not contain the actual card information) and for you to, at their election, to automatically charge their accounts for dues renewals.
The software has an export utility for Quickbooks
The cost is NOT a function of the number of members or records in your database, that is unlimited. Nor is it a function of the size of your website, similarly that is unlimited.
