First Generation Site
In 2001 the Joint Council of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology needed a website to facilitate communication with their membership. Zone Systems, created a HTML site to present their weekly newsletter. As a benefit for the members, the weekly newsletter called “New News You Can Use”, informed allergists of the JCAAI’s lobbying work in the US legislature. This section of the site was designed only for members only and contained a number of security measures to protect the content from the general public.
Second Generation Site
In 2007 the JCAAI started to out grow their site. They needed more of their website. Zone Systems was tasked with finding another solution that could expand the services the JCAAI provided for its members. Through extensive research Zone Systems found, negotiated, configured and setup a website Portal System for the new site.
Third Generation Site
Over the years the JCAAI found itself using a number of different tools to achieve the necessary day-to-day results. A common issue for smaller organizations, they needed to consolidate their resources to save time, effort and increase efficiency. Zone Systems recommended a series of solutions in addition to their third generation website. The new website, built with WordPress and utilizing a Single-Sign-on service, brought together the weekly, newsletter, social media integration, membership management, and e-commerce/dues functionality. The most impressive result was allowing the member to track and pay their dues in additional to other membership maintenance functions previously manually managed by the JCAAI office.
