Elevating Associations

Empowering Members

Your All-in-One Solution for Association Success & Seamless Conference Management

Confexa is a versatile software solution designed to streamline the operations of associations, enhancing both membership management and event coordination. At its core, the system boasts a sophisticated Membership System, which includes a comprehensive member portal. This portal is a one-stop shop for members to manage their profiles, renew memberships, and stay engaged with the organisation’s activities. The system simplifies committee management and facilitates seamless applications and payments for new memberships.

Equipped with advanced CRM capabilities, Confexa enables admin staff to provide unparalleled member support by ‘impersonating’ users, resolving issues from their perspective. This is complemented by detailed reports and statistics, which offer valuable insights into membership trends. Furthermore, the system allows for the addition and promotion of conferences and seminars, making them readily available for purchase within the membership portal.

Complementing the membership features is the Conference Management System, which transforms how training sessions and conferences are presented and sold. This component supports web and mobile platforms, ensuring accessibility and convenience for users. Key features include a streamlined registration and booking process, robust communication options through email and SMS, and diverse payment solutions.

History of Confexa

We first met the EACTS in 2008 and started discussing developing a software solution for them. In 2014, we had a more focused discussion. In 2015, during a week in Windsor, we jointly worked out the scope and requirements of a system. In 2017, the membership part went live. In 2018, we handled the first annual conference in Vienna, and since then, EACTS has been using the software for their entire administration of membership management, training and conferences. The idea to offer the software as a generic solution for associations was there from the very beginning.
