Great service!

Pros

I really like the flexibility of Fonteva for Associations. We have a lot of ideas to innovate and update our processes and this software does a great job in tailoring to our specific business needs.

Cons

It’s very difficult to make decisions based on the various software updates that occur throughout the year. It’s a challenge to project the future since we won’t know what enhances are coming up in the system.

Great product and service

Has great potential to be THE BEST AMS out there. We are new so there are a few pumps, but in the long run this is the winning AMS

Pros

What I like the best about Fonteva is it is designed with association as the targeted audience, and most important of all it is based on Salesforce. It is like you have two companies working for your organizations. If that is still not enough, you can always access AppExchange market place where there are tons of third party apps (like Fonteva) to accomplish anything else you want to do. It is similar to the ecosystem that Apple has with its iOS and App Store. You cannot go wrong with this model.

Cons

A few things did not work out of box as intended. Other than, everything is good

Fonteva for Associations that want to use Salesforce

Using an AMS based on SFDC allows us to integration much more easily with other vendors and systems. A huge win for our association

Pros

Our association has been using SFDC for about two years and we tried to integrate our old AMS with limited success. It made sense for us to move to a SFDC based AMS and now our AMS and SFDC data share the same database so no integration necessary! I highly recommend moving to Fonteva

Cons

We now have less control over our AMS as we are at the mercy of SFDC but the advantages outweigh the cons

Great software, needs customization to be truly valuable

We are still in the implementation stage, so I’ve refrained from forming a concrete opinion on the software one way or the other. It holds a lot of promise and we’ve had good customer service overall, but it remains to be seen whether some of our more pie-in-the-sky hopes and wishes will be granted. I’m hopeful!

Pros

Integrates well into Salesforce, allows us to work with member data using mobile, desktop, tablet. Provides lots of options to plug in additional apps to improve our member experience and make our working lives easier.

Cons

Reporting is limited by the Salesforce reporting capabilities, which makes the AMS feel quite limited. We’ve had to use extensive customizations to allow our board-approved price rules, integrations, member communications, etc. to thrive. Had some issues moving from UAT to production environment.

Why not use the product that is future proofed?

Out of every major AMS vendor Fonteva was the only company that could not just meet our technical needs but vowed to work with us to build for our future.

Pros

Salesforce Platform - it is contstantly improving

Cons

Salesforce Pricing - lets face it, Salesforce is expensive

Top Notch Association Management Software

Pros

We conducted an in-depth search and review to evaluate and select an Association Management Software (AMS) for our medium sized Association. There are a variety of reasons as to why we selected Fonteva, but to summarize here are our main reasons for selecting this product.

1. User Experience - The SF Lightning and Fonteva user experience for our end users is clean, simple, and easy to learn. The flexibility it offers is clear and concise to staff and will make their day to day work much more efficient. The system is highly configurable.

2. Community Groups - For a chapter based association like ours there will be many benefits to having this feature enabled. Chapters will have a variety of accessible features that our current AMS doesn't easily offer.

3. Integration - We use a wide variety of other software to run our organization. Salesforce and Fonteva's ability to connect with and integrate is simple and cost efficient.

I highly recommend this a solution for your Association.

Cons

No negatives have been found yet. Of course, you'd love for it to be cheaper. Keep an eye on the size of your environment.

Totally changed my time management.

Pros

After struggling with different systems and ways of organizing, we tried this program. It was totally easy and freed up time for other pressing projects.

Cons

It was a little difficult to import data but that was mostly due to trying so many different ways and programs prior to this.

Even the most technically challenged individual will understand how to use the software. The site is clean, straightforward and customizable for your respective organization.

Only thing i do wish is the ability to change titles of items like "notes" on internal profiles based on organizational needs.

Best member management software we've found on the market. Growing company continuously improving.

Pros

The AMS is build directly on Salesforce. It offers a wide range of possibilities due to Salesforce's flexibility. The apps they have built as part of the Membership suite are easy to use and can be tailored to fit business needs within certain constraints. The staff appear eager to help and are knowledgeable.

Cons

As with the events module, I feel that there can be some improvements to the outward-facing elements regarding SEO. Some of the features that are of interest aren't available until an upcoming release.

I have nothing but positive things to say!

member benefits. Event creator. Online forums and communities. easy payments.

Pros

We just transitioned to Fonteva 2 months ago and it has been such a smooth transition. Love the events and ecommerce features. My members love the badge and community features!

Cons

I don't like not being able to delete accounts or contacts. Also with the data merge I have a lot of old accounts and duplicates. Wish there was a better scrub system initially.

a good options for the people (students and researchers) and organitazions that must tools quickly

It offers me the possibility of doing activities in several programs, which is very important for me, since I can take advantage of each of the particular skills of each software and generate a better product. all through a cloud of data

Pros

Infinite possibilities of exchanging truthful information at the right time and with the option of choosing the right tool. Is a very flexible application that presents multiple users with tools to manage a group of employees linked through the cloud, skipping distances and thinking. the app allows you to focus on a shared goals.
They overcome the rigidity of a software and develop many app that evolve together with the users and their experiences, they honestly guarantee the success.
An excellent option for companies that visualize the need to adapt to the digital era

Cons

The registration process, It can be a little common and tedious that´s all. fonteva does not present cons against which to be alarmed.
The app depend on an excellent infrastrutura of data and speed of communication, which becomes very difficult for the countries with deficiencies in the web infrastructure
