Ideal association management software

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
i4a allows us to do so much, despite being an office of just 2 FTE. We have hundreds of universities in our association, with thousands of individuals engaged. The software allows us to provide a professional website, register participants for our workshops and meetings, easily remind members about membership renewal, and now also integrate with an online community platform (and a lot more). The help ticket system works great and the i4a team is knowledgeable and professional.

Cons
There hasn't been anything not to like; I've used much more expensive, custom-built solutions at other organizations and this is easier to use!

Implementation = 10 out of 10; Customer Service = 10 out of 10; Cost = 10 out of 10; Owner = 10 out of 10; Access to help = 10 out of 10; Ease of Product = 10 out of 10

Pros
As an association executive with 25 years of experience with various software packages, i4a offers everything I wanted and more! Should have switched years ago.

Cons
The one request I have made is to have job postings visible without logging in. That is truly it. Everything else is simply outstanding.

It’s ok for low budgets

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-08-18
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
I’m not a fan of this AMS however, since I’ve been using it for more than 3 year I came to terms with all the things it doesn’t have to offer. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a new solution. But if your budget is low, you can give it a try.

Cons
Very limited functionality, not user-friendly, takes a lot of time to do one-click operations. On a positive side, their support team will assist with your issues but once you exceed your contracted hours, you’ll be billed for any extra work and it’s not cheap.

What a Relief!

Review Source: Capterra

I really like the personal touch with I4A. I feel like I know the people behind the scenes and frankly, don't know how they do what they do for so little money!

Pros
How wonderful to have found I4A. It was recommended to me by another executive director of a non-profit association. After seeing it in action on their website, I knew it was what we need. The last software we were using had impersonal, high-turnover staff. Calling the hotline was a crap-shoot as to whether you would get someone helpful or not. So far, with I4A, the help and support has been phenomenal. Quick, knowledgeable, personal, consistent help is available. The features are so great for an association and it worked with our Wordpress website so beautifully. Our members are going to be so relieved to have something that works so well!

Cons
Can't think of a thing. So far, everything has been an improvement over what we had.

Amazing Customer Support & Value for the $$$

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-05-06
Review Source: Capterra

This platform has allowed our leadership, who are located all over the US, to see live real-time data from the comfort of their own homes without office staff having to run and email reports. Having a centralized database has rendered obsolete various methods of tracking data that had been developed over the years such as Excel spreadsheets and MS Access databases, none of which talked to each other of course. Aggregating the data was the most painful part of the transition and we are still cleaning up the data, six years later. But, that's not i4a's fault, in fact they are a part of the solution.

Pros
All of the features that we are using are excellent and the customer service is amazing! The support wiki is extremely in depth and will guide a user step by step to do anything they need. The team will also do some excellent custom work for you if needed and they are constantly adding new functionality. It's brought our 10,000+ member nonprofit into the 21st Century! I would highly recommend this for any organization looking to manage their membership and move away from multiply databases and spreadsheets to manage their data.

Cons
There are so many functions that the software provides out of the box that it can be a bit overwhelming. But, the customer service is so amazing that you are guided step by step and you never feel alone.
