ENA chose Progress® Sitefinity®, along with its new turnkey integration for Ucommerce. The ENA team then integrated API’s with a host of solutions, including to manage member’s SSO experience, its learning management system to track online course completions, and other API’s for shipping, finance, PCI compliance and more.
“Now, when you login to the website, members can access courses, profile information, certifications, payment history and their wish list. Streams of data flow seamlessly from our AMS and their cart,” said Walsh. “We no longer need to make members wait to come to the shopping cart because the shopping cart is integrated throughout the website.”
ENA was able to implement a frictionless ecommerce experience, not only for members, but for foundation supporters as well, making it easier for them to actively donate to the organization. Both commerce transactions could be completed in one connected experience—on any device.
The team now uses roles and permissions to create tailored web experiences appropriate for each user’s membership level: members, board members, state and chapter leaders.
“From a management perspective, it’s much easier than SharePoint ever was. We can let staff create their content and then look it over to make sure it’s in conformance. I can’t imagine using SharePoint over Sitefinity. It doesn’t make any sense,” said Glynn.
