We've only started working with this product yesterday, but ... wow! The amount of integration and sheer volume of management options is blowing us away. We've trialed other products and this is on par with ones that charge hundreds of dollars per year. Sorry - but the move to Open Source (i.e. it being "free") just can't be ignored.
Fred comments that it can't make forms. Perhaps on July 7th that was true. We don't know. But it definitely DOES make forms today - right under the "Quick Add" button, along with Accounts, Contacts, Content and a half dozen other items.
Biggest features (for us) include:
- multi-level membership management (including a free subscription option. We never anticipated how difficult that would be to integrate - but zenbership does it!)
- page and content protection on a "per membership" or even individual client basis
- Event management w/email integration
- Sales integration
- Payments integration
- Contact to Lead to Opportunity to Client visualization
And that's just the first day.
Are there negatives? A couple we've come across - dating it to our branding will take require some work, and at this moment there seem to be no "extensions" that can be easily integrated (although there seems to be plenty of opportunity for customization – if you have someone comfortable with HTML, CSS and PHP you should have no difficulties. Or aybe spend the few hundred you save here on a programming course or two!) But the benefits really look like it will be outweighing any of that.
