Fíonta Association Accelerator

Born from Fíonta’s deep association expertise, Fíonta Association Accelerator marries years of Salesforce proficiency with an unwavering commitment to resolve your challenges.

Manage members and increase engagement with Fíonta Association Accelerator

Associations connect people with common interests to foster exceptional personal and professional development. Their success relies on a well-integrated membership technology platform, a cornerstone for streamlined operations and outstanding member experiences.

Since its founding in 2001, Fíonta has witnessed a struggle for associations burdened by antiquated, overly complex systems and disjointed data sources. The result? Dismal member engagement and cumbersome processes that drain precious time and resources. The urgency to act is palpable as associations understand the need to centralize and embrace a singular platform – the key to data consolidation, tech stack simplicity, and the seamless journey your members now demand.

Creating a safe place for members to heal and support one another

Alliance for Safety and Justice is building a future in which all communities are “Just Safe.” It is a multi-state advocacy organization that combines smart policy reform with organizing and representing survivors, people with old records, and the organizations that serve them. ASJ contracted with Fíonta to build an Experience Cloud portal catering to two of its core programs: Crime Survivors for Safety (CSSJ) and TimeDone. These initiatives offer assistance and community to both crime survivors and people with old records. The primary objective was to establish a secure, authenticated online platform, enabling program members to interact, support one another, and engage with program services to influence local, state, and national policies.

Securing member data and access online

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is respected for its dedication to industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety communities. This membership-based organization founded in the New Deal era has stayed relevant to its growing membership by providing robust benefits, many of which are now accessible through its digital properties. These include a WordPress website fully integrated with Fonteva, an Association Management Solution (AMS) built on Salesforce. Under our guidance, the website was migrated to a new hosting solution, Pantheon, without disrupting member services or access. Visit website

Enhancing the quality of life for millions, one donation at a time

What our clients are saying

Our consultant asked the right questions to ensure we were always tackling and prioritizing a critical problem, and often gave us options and a heads-up regarding potential project overruns and unexpected areas when there wasn’t enough information to forecast issues more precisely. We LOVE working with them and plan on engaging them further. Innovations for Poverty Action
We had a hard deadline for the implementation of Pardot. Fíonta designed a plan that met our needs and timeline. It was a team effort, but we launched on-time with a small amount of budget left-over for additional services. United Soccer Coaches
We had unique and complex challenges that they were able to provide solutions for, which greatly improved our efficiencies. They kept us well-informed on deliverables, budgets, and time frames, so we were never surprised. Otto Bremer Trust
Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (formerly Pardot) has been really helpful in terms of the automated emails, engagement paths, and one-on-one emails we could set up for routine requests. ACDA
