At Hodgson, we feel as though integration is our middle name. Every project that comes our way needs some level of integration, and clients are always asking how we’re going to do it and how we’re going to make sure it’s pretty much invisible to users.
When we’re integrating a Content Management System (CMS) with any third-party system (whether it’s an Association Management System [AMS], an event calendar, a Customer Relationship Management [CRM] tool or other platform), our goals are consistent and simple:
- We want to offer a simple and seamless user experience; one in which users don’t need to hunt down content or enter their login credentials more than once.
- Members must be able to access their account or profile pages and have the ability to make updates, payments, and register themselves for events, all through an easy-to-use interface.
It takes careful planning, a lot of testing and a cooperative relationship to successfully integrate third-party systems with a CMS. It takes a partner with a wealth of experience and a history of success. It’s Hodgson’s goal to present to clients a site so well integrated that it’s not apparent where one system ends and the other begins.
If your integration needs haven’t been met, or you’re getting feedback that your website isn’t as user friendly as you’d like, contact us. We’ll take a look and see if we can smooth some of the rough edges for you!
