The Aptify Blog
The Aptify Blog is an honest and informative collection of articles to help association executives solve their most pressing issues.
The 2019 Aptify Painted Picture, our free mobile app revealed at AUC2016, the 2017 influencer predictions, and the coming of our latest release all show Aptify at the forefront of associations of the future. We’re in place to be your organization’s partner for association success in 2017 and beyond. As a new team member at Aptify last year, all the future fun is exciting—but I’ve wondered, as you may have as well, what do we see if we look backwards at Aptify?
What Is “The Cloud”? We throw the word “cloud” around a lot.

One of the greatest challenges facing associations, specifically, those involved in IT, is the seamless integration between the AMS and complementary systems such as a Learning Management System. Like any relationship between two entities, there is greater chance of success when both are able to work collaboratively and seamlessly together. In the case of AMS - LMS integration, when it’s done well it can go completely unnoticed by a learner. It is, if you will, the “unsung hero” of participant engagement. Though the benefits of integration are not necessarily seen, they are very much felt. For example, CommPartners’ Elevate LMS was designed to capitalize on this relationship and provide the user a relevant and meaningful experience.
