Guidebook Partners with Fonteva to Offer Mobile Apps to Associations

Associations Can Now Create Custom Mobile Experiences Using Fonteva Mobile Powered by Guidebook to Engage Members, Increase Renewals, and Improve Revenues


SAN FRANCISCO, CA — May 30, 2019 — Guidebook, the leading platform for building mobile applications, today announced it has entered into a formal partnership with Fonteva, the leading provider of membership and events solutions for associations. Now offering Fonteva Mobile powered by Guidebook, Fonteva’s customers can quickly create and manage custom, native mobile apps using Guidebook’s platform to more effectively engage and connect with their members.

The average person spends over four hours in mobile apps every day. To meet members on their platform of choice, associations increasingly rely on mobile apps as a critical component in their toolbox for communicating and engaging with members. Creating a valuable mobile experience that effectively engages members helps improve renewal rates and increase sponsor revenues.

“For the first time, associations no longer need to compromise on the quality of the mobile apps they deliver to members,” said Jerry Huskins, CEO of Fonteva. “Combining our two market-leading platforms delivers the most powerful association management solution ever, giving our customers the most dynamic and personalized mobile experiences their members are expecting. This partnership underscores our commitment to supporting our customers and their ability to improve how they reach and engage with their members.”


Immediate Benefits to Associations

Association members demand high-quality, engaging mobile apps, and no other association management software (AMS) provider offers a product as feature-rich and customizable as Fonteva Mobile.

The partnership provides an immediate benefit to Fonteva’s nearly 200 global association customers. Fonteva’s comprehensive association and events management software is now bundled with a best-in-class mobile app platform, so there is no need for associations to deal with the hassle of evaluating, purchasing, and integrating a separate mobile solution. Leveraging Guidebook’s industry-leading feature set, associations can keep their members engaged by providing event schedules, group discussions, social feeds, surveys, networking and messaging tools, and more. Fonteva Mobile remains 100% Salesforce native, meaning associations can access real-time event data without ever leaving their CRM.

“Mobile apps are a powerful tool for associations to form stronger relationships with their members. It can be challenging for associations to remain highly relevant to members, and oftentimes attempts at delivering value can go unnoticed. With Fonteva Mobile, it’s a win-win. Associations are able to establish unprecedented levels of communication with their members and members gain instant access to the many benefits associations offer via their preferred delivery method – an app that looks and performs like any other cutting-edge consumer app they have on their phones,” said Jeff Lewis, founder and CEO of Guidebook.

With a focus on providing the best experience to customers, Fonteva has fully integrated its content management system with Guidebook’s mobile app building platform. Information will seamlessly flow between the two systems programmatically, resulting in saved time for associations and apps that always contain up-to-date information for members.

Guideboook’s industry-leading open API, which allows any software provider to add mobile apps to their offering, facilitates the partnership. Fonteva is the second addition to Guidebook’s Partner Program since its launch earlier this year, as software providers aim to answer growing customer demand for mobile products.
