Integration. It’s a word we hear a lot when discussing association websites, but, depending on where you are on the technical know-how spectrum, the term could mean something different to you than the next person. The truth is, the term doesn’t have just one meaning. There are many.
To help clear the confusion, we’ve provided a quick breakdown of the six most common types of integrations with a brief description and example of each.
So, as you can see, the term integration does have several interpretations. It’s important when you’re speaking with your AMS or website vendor to clarify what type of integration you’re referencing to help ensure all expectations are met. And, keep in mind, integrations really are the key to a robust and user-friendly website experience for your members, offering them dynamic content in a cutting edge way that works for them.
