Abila and Higher Logic Announce New Partnership

New deal offers Higher Logic’s Community Management software for netFORUM Enterprise clients

Washington, DC – June 11, 2014Abila, provider of membership and donor management solutions for associations and not-for-profits, announced that Higher Logic, the leading industry provider of cloud-based community software, will be the recommended vendor for community management solutions for Enterprise customers.

“We’re very excited to offer the most comprehensive and best-of-breed solution and look forward to seeing the many successes of our netFORUM clients as a result,” said Erin Shy, vice president, Product Management and Product Marketing, Abila.

netFORUM centralizes all of an organization’s information into one database, with a comprehensive set of modules which include member data and business processes. Higher Logic’s Connected Community securely integrates with netFORUM Enterprise resulting in:

  • A full and complete community network on day one;
  • Automatic creation of communities based on interests, committees and skills;
  • Single sign-on (SSO) across both platforms;
  • Reduced staff time with only one data source to manage.

Abila and Higher Logic plan to enhance the integration between the software systems to provide netFORUM clients with a 360-degree view into their membership databases. Abila clients will be able to comprehensively integrate member information from their community site into A-Score™. The ability to analyze more comprehensive data sets means better understanding of the clients’ membership.

“We’re pleased to be working with Abila to provide their clients with a fully integrated and scalable community solution to help them better engage their members,” said Higher Logic CRO Mark Lowry.

Higher Logic works with over 70 netFORUM clients.
