As a NFP organisation with less than 100 Members, Simple Membership does the job extremely well, Ease of set-up and use makes this programme indespensable no matter what size of Membership you are needing to administer.

There’s a bewildering array of products out there for managing access control or rich profiles with many ways to pay. For our needs this offers just the right profile fields and content-level access control without insisting on payment or self-registration. Configuration is straightforward, documentation is exemplary and the extras we might want (like a user directory, partial protection or data export) are nearby at reasonable cost too. This is the sweet spot – well done!
