U.S. Travel Association
Integrate Drupal with Abila's NetFORUM
In 2010, The U.S. Travel Association needed a team of Drupal experts to create a consistent solution across their association’s 10 websites. Inclind created the required integration between Drupal and netFORUM and continued to partner with them in a support and advisory role. And, most recently, we were asked to step in again to revamp its membership management system through all 10 sites.
Originally, the U.S. Travel Association wanted to establish a consistent Drupal-based platform for their portfolio of websites. They were seeking deeper integration between their existing sites and their Abila’s netFORUM membership management software. But they needed a closer, more customized connection to netFORUM – one that seamlessly integrated users, organizations, products and orders logging into www.ustravel.org. Communication sometimes became complicated within the size and scope of the marketing and IT teams and leaders at the U.S. Travel Association. We also worked with a third party, Threespot, an interactive agency out of D.C., which added another complexity to the project.
Over the years, beyond the support role from our Inclind team, we formed a strong working relationship with U.S. Travel’s existing marketing and IT teams to provide thorough integration with netFORUM. The U.S. Travel Association is now the first organization to have a complete partnership with NetFORUM for a more streamlined commerce experience across multiple roles, including a store using Drupal on the front end of the development and a gateway access to commerce assets, such as purchasing subscriptions, renewals and more on the back end using U.S. Travel data (members, those members’ organizations, their products marketed, etc.).
