Association, Directory and Membership Software

With the changes in media, there has also become a change in what is possible with software that was traditionally reserved for typical real life associations. However, many sites thrive on directories, online membership and often have at least one event. They share many of the same needs and the cost of buying off the shelf SaaS cloud software that is billed monthly and updated at the same speed as our technology, may be even significantly less and much faster than getting your unique site up with traditional design and development techniques. Association software now almost all comes with a built in CMS so there is no need for a Wordpress, easy to use front and back end and a host of other features. This is a video list of membership and association software and a list of features and price.

Timberlake Association Software

With the case of Timberlake's program, they even include all the costs of the website design, development and hosting. So we are sharing this and all the features and pricing as another option when you're looking at whether you piece together solutions for your content, membership, online sales, events, directories and more and see if your needs are better met by an all inclusive solution. We have also included them in our list of content management, marketing and curation software as an example of many cross-overs.

As with most programs, Timberlake (run by Naylor Association Solutions) has three levels of service and product. Unlike most sites, they are willing to put out your full first year (with set up fees being more) and second year pricing on the website in addition to all of the features and individual fees.

The entry is "GO" at $295/ month licensing, a $2,495 setup and thus first year costs total $5,035 and second year $3,540. This is designed for associations migrating from manual processes and older databases to an AMS, Website CMS and training. Unlimited staff users and up to 10,000 contact records.

The middle level PRO at $595/ month, a $2,495 setup comes to $9,635 your first year and $7,140 your second year in monthly fees. Timberlake says this is their most popular edition and provides a full featured AMS, Website CMS and unlimited support. Unlimited staff users. 30,000 records.
