Dallas, TX, May 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Telligent, a leader in social community software, congratulates its partner Foundation648 on its latest collaboration in the launch of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) community site, myASA.
By employing a key integration between Telligent and Sitecore, the new community debuted this spring with a new look and new integrated services.
At the onset of the project, ASA was seeking a suite of solutions that would unify and help it manage the web content on its various web properties. Its objectives were to seek a Content Management Solution (CMS) and community solution that would help simplify site structure and provide a cohesively branded, engaging environment for ASA members to interact.
To find the right solutions, ASA contracted with Foundation648, a web solutions provider for companies that use the web to reach customers throughout the world. Foundation648 went through a discovery phase based on project requirements and recommended Telligent Community as the basis for the new "myASA" community portal. Foundation648 found that Telligent was a perfect fit because of its integration with Sitecore, solid customer relationship management (CRM) integration, and ability to create custom functions, such as membership lookup as well as advocacy and product lookup, all embedded in Telligent’s impressive user experience.
“Telligent was a natural fit with Sitecore. It creates a one-stop shop for members to access their membership profile, find people and browse information,” said Patrick Poer, president and founder of Foundation648. “The big part was how easily ASA’s CRM and the Sitecore CMS were able to connect right into Telligent Community.”
Before the redesign of the community, ASA supported more than 90 communities with list servers. Now with the Telligent and Sitecore integration, the ASA community offers users another venue to communicate. By hosting a single sign on for all third-party systems, which also integrates with ASA’s CRM, and providing members a portal to update their information, ASA has been able to add significant value to its member’s experience.
