Abila solutions are built on decades of domain experience and are designed to help you more strategically and efficiently advance your goals and mission. Our technology is purpose-built, designed from the ground up to meet the specific needs of member-based organizations.
For sophisticated enterprise associations requiring powerful, comprehensive member engagement and management tools, we offer Abila netFORUM Enterprise™, a cloud-based, extensible, and highly-customizable association management system (AMS). netFORUM Enterprise’s robust profiles give you a comprehensive view of your constituents, making it easy to target communications, offer value-added products and services, and improve member acquisition and retention. Its open and extensible platform enables you to easily integrate other mission-critical applications, so you can build a solution that meets your, as well as your members’, unique needs.
We also offer a cloud-based, out-of-the-box AMS – Abila netFORUM Pro™ – for small to mid-sized membership organizations that need straightforward association management support. netFORUM Pro integrates well with netFORUM Enterprise, which is extremely valuable to our national clients who have regional operations that may not need the power and reach of a full-scale enterprise AMS.
Integrating seamlessly with our AMS is the latest member of the Abila family of products, Freestone™ Learning Management System. Deliver live webinars, webcasts, on-demand programming, and continuing education certifications to members via this modern, powerful LMS.

For associations striving to improve operations and simplify financial management, we also offer the gold standard in true fund accounting, Abila MIP Fund Accounting™. Our latest generation product, Abila MIP Advance™, was recently named a Top New Product for 2016 by the editors of Accounting Today, based on its ability to help you tackle your association’s real, day-to-day challenges. MIP Advance helps you better manage, track, and report your finances, and offers audit reporting and fraud deterrence and alerting. Its cloud-based technology has ongoing maintenance, automatic backups, and iron-clad security baked in, and enables anytime/anywhere access to important data and reports.
