Fonteva is a software company whose mission is to empower associations with innovation and flexibility. Fonteva delivers future-ready solutions with the most flexible, scalable, and responsive apps in the cloud. Their flagship software, MemberNation, is the first true-cloud Association Management Software (AMS) and is built on the Salesforce platform.
During the past several years, we’ve listened carefully as association executives described the lack of innovation and interoperability they experience with their legacy AMS systems. That’s why, after years of planning and development, we have created MemberNation.
When creating MemberNation, we leveraged Salesforce to help associations eliminate costly upgrades, while gaining world-class CRM functionality. Today, Fonteva customers can manage all aspects of their operations more effectively—and at less cost. The Salesforce platform delivers the world’s best data management, security and service availability, while featuring a highly intuitive user interface. The stability, reliability and scalability of the Salesforce platform are unparalleled. Like other industry observers, we believe the Salesforce platform will eventually become the gold standard in the association software industry.
MemberNation combines Salesforce’s next-generation technology with the functionality associations and other member-based organizations require to develop and nurture relationships, manage events, measure engagement, drive collaboration, and achieve their mission. Including:
