Trade Association Websites

Why use Strategies for your Trade Association or Membership website?
We have over 15 years experience developing websites and powerful solutions with some of the UK's largest Trade Associations and membership organizations.

Trade Association & Membership Organisation Websites

Strategies is pleased to announce the launch of its new trade association and membership organisation website software – “MemberWeb”.

The product has been specifically designed to manage the needs of trade associations, special interest groups and general membership organisations. The MemberWeb product is delivered with a number of “core” modules with additional “optional” modules that can be added to the core system as per the client’s requirements.

The product has been design, programmed and fully-tested here in the U.K by our team of in-house web application developers.

We have worked with a number of the UK’s largest trade associations for the last 20 years across key sectors including Aerospace, Motoring, Security, Defence and Space. These relationships and projects have provided us with a unique insight into how to best deliver functional websites for these types of membership organisations. Memberweb is completely modular allowing organisations to pick and choose the elements of functionality that best suit their organisation and overall objectives.

The Approach

We deploy MemberWeb as a standalone, hosted system ready to be integrated into an existing OR new website. Many of our trade association and membership organisation clients choose to have us redesign their website in conjunction with a roll-out of MemberWeb. Our designers are expert in creating clean, modern and functional web designs for trade association and membership organisations.

As part of a new trade association and membership organisation website project we typically supply:

  • Website design
  • Website development and build
  • Full integration With “MemberWeb” and your chosen modules
  • Data migration from your existing website or membership CRM package

Modular Design

MemberWeb’s modular design allows for the addition of functionality as a client’s needs grow. The core list of modules deliver the central “Member Lounge” type functionality whilst the optional modules deliver varied and extended functionality to suit your needs. We will demonstrate and discuss each module with you allowing you to make an informed decision for your organisation before any project commences.

Data Migration

Having worked in this arena for over 20 years we have a great deal of experience migrating company and user data from existing websites and membership CRMs. We have experience working with a number of different platorms, technologies and databases and will be able to devise a data migration plan that suits your needs and situation.
