Custom website development is essential for the online success of a homeowner association website. The great news is that association type websites typically do not need a lot of custom development. Here are the things that we have implemented in the past for these types of websites, but please keep in mind that each solution will need to be tailored to each association’s specific needs.
Easy Content Management. The admin of a website needs to be able to easily manage and edit content on the site. This should include easy file uploads, page creation, image uploads, and content creation. Five Technology’s content
management system (CMS) provides a user-friendly environment for even non-technical admins.
Secure Access/User Logins. Secure access is an important feature for any homeowner association type website. Your admins should be able to easily add important documents (tax info, board meeting agendas, etc.) to pages behind a secure access gateway. They should also be able to easily create and manage user logins for residents accessing this information.
Blog/News Feed. Keeping your residents up to date on the latest news in the association or even highlighting upcoming events in the area is very important. A blog can accomplish this news curation in an easy-to-use platform. In most cases, this could even replace an association newsletter; which will save time, paper, and hassle.
Agenda App. Five Technology has developed and implemented a custom website application that makes creating, publishing, and sharing board meeting agendas and minutes easy. Create meeting agendas from a variety of templates based on the type of meeting, add items and subitems, then publish to the website for instant access. During the meeting, you can then access the agenda and add notes, comments, and amendments right from the app, then re-publish it for instant access to the meeting’s minutes by the residents. It even provides for video uploads, if the meetings were recorded. Save time, save paper, save money!
