Membership Software

Membership Software

Membership software usually means one of two things:

  1. Membership management software - used by membership-based organizations (such as associations and clubs) to maintain their membership records, automate applications and renewals etc. ( closely related to association management system )
  2. Membership website software - to manage free or paid membership-based access to website (e.g. premium content), typically integrated with a content management system

And some membership software handles both.


Membership management software can be further classified in three categories:

  1. Software as a service (aka hosted software, cloud software, online software, web-based software)
  2. Desktop software - software you install on your own computer
  3. Web application - software you can install on a web server (website)

Membership website software is typically offered in one of two ways:

  1. Add-on to a content management system
  2. Software as a service

Famous quotes containing the word membership:

    The two real political parties in America are the Winners and the Losers. The people don’t acknowledge this. They claim membership in two imaginary parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, instead.
    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)
