The Bridgelin Platform is designed as a series of integrated modules. Just get the modules you need as you need them.
New modules are being developed all the time ... and we can build you a custom one if your needs demand it (saving you time and money in the process).
Standard or custom, all Bridgelin modules are fully integrated which means no duplication of effort ... in other words, your organization will run better.
Following is a brief description of each standard module.
- Content Management
- Directory Management
- Event Registration
- Forms & Surveys
- Private Area
- Data Management
- Membership Management
- Hosting, Email and Domain
Content is King!
The foundation of any website is content. You want lots of it and you want to keep it fresh and inviting. The Bridgelin Content Management module makes posting, organizing and maintaining your own content as easy as can be. In addition to the standard pages you can build an event calendar, a news section as well as photo and video galleries. And its integrated with the Newsletter and Directory modules for added benefit with Content Sharing for an extra bonus.
The Bridgelin Directory is one that people will use – and isn't that the whole idea in the first place. Easy to find what you need - and with lots to see when you find it – all the usual stuff plus maps, online coupons and much, much more. And a permissioning system that lets you share the workload of keeping it accurate and up-to-date.
Let the banners fly!
Draw attention to your sponsors – or your own promotions – and track the results. There's a whole menu of placement and positioning options so you can put together the program that will get you and your sponsors the best results.
Start spreading the news!
Email is one of the best ways to push your website content out to your audience and the Bridgelin Newsletter module makes the whole process effortless. Use web content to build your newsletter and broadcast it out to a list that is integrated with your Directory and the backend Data Management module.
Guess who's coming to dinner!
Who's coming? Who's paid? Now you can answers those questions just by lifting a finger and clicking a mouse. Integrated with the Event Calendar in your Content Management module, you design the form to collect the information you want, including online payment of registration fees.
Forms & Surveys
Ask and you shall receive!
Versatile is probably the best way to describe this module. Use it for contest entries, business award nominations, membership applications, surveys ... any host of possibilities where you need to gather information - and online payments.
What's the password!
While the accessibility of the Internet is part of its advantage, you sometimes want to control who sees what. With a password protected private area the only ones to get in are the ones you want in. Logins are individualized for optimum control – and users who have other access permissions use the same login for optimum ease-of-use.
Who's who and what's what!
No matter what kind of organization you are running it doubtless has many relationships – with members, suppliers, prospects, staff, volunteers and so on. The Bridgelin Data Management module (aka DMS) represents a unique and innovative way to manage the people and organizations in your sphere - in a way that better reflects reality and the mulitude of relationships we all. It is also the foundation for other backend modules, both standard and custom.
Membership has its privileges!
As a member-based organization your primary responsibility is to address the needs of your members – so the less time you spend doing administration the more time you can spend at providing member value. The Bridgelin Membership Management module (aka MMS) brings full automation to the renewal process including online invoicing and payment processing. The module is fully integrated with your Directory and QuickBooks so there is no duplication of effort for optimum efficiency.
Made to Order!
If you have a highly specialized need we can build you a custom module ... at a fraction of the cost it would take to build something from scratch and in much less time. We'll sitdown with you to determine your precise requirements and then prepare a specification outline and a firm quote. Then just give us the word and we'll get'er done.
