SilkStart Association Management Software

Cloud software for member-based organizations

Here at SilkStart, we’re on a mission to move associations into the cloud and onto a connected platform through software designed for member-based organizations.

SilkStart’s products are all cloud based - so say goodbye to servers, downloads, hidden fees, and unnecessary costs.  When you are in the cloud, you always have the latest version, operating costs are low and predictable, and the user experience is superior.

What is SilkStart?

SilkStart is a leading provider of cloud-based software for member-based organizations. Our solutions enable trade, not-for profit, and multi-chapter associations of all sizes to realize the benefits of modern cloud-based architecture and mobile applications, without compromising industry-specific functionality.

With SilkStart, associations don't need to piece together several applications. Instead, SilkStart creates a seamless integration between components through one connected platform. This makes the complexity of running an association much easier, allowing associations to focus on what's most important - providing value to their members.

SilkStart Association Management Software

Company Overview

SilkStart was founded in 2010 on the premise that industry-specific business problems would best be addressed by industry-specific, cloud-based solutions. Since then we have worked to do just that by providing associations and nonprofits with a better solution for handling the complexity of running their organization.

Our vision has grown to be commonly known as ‘vertical SaaS’ or vertical software as a service. It’s based on the premise that vertically integrated software will always be superior to generic broad based solutions that cover a wide variety of verticals. SilkStart was purpose built for member-based organizations, and while the team and the product have evolved, the mission is the same - to move associations into the cloud and onto a connected platform through software designed for member-based organizations.

Our culture is centered around customer success, and our goal is to be seen by our customers as a strategic technology partner. To that end, we work with our customers every day to understand their most important business challenges, which we help them solve with our innovative solutions.

How SilkStart can help your organization

SilkStart simplifies member management

Using multiple applications, or a CRM like Salesforce that was not designed for member management, complicates things. SilkStart lets you bypass these problems and frees up your time so you can focus on acquiring, engaging, and retaining your members.

SilkStart innovates for you

Our smart adoption of the latest technology safely improves our software, and ensures an optimal experience for our users. That’s why SilkStart web pages are all responsive. Having a website that works on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is essential to every association.

SilkStart is an appreciating asset

Bespoke or custom developed software is a depreciating asset, like a used car. The longer it is there, the more it costs to maintain and enhance. Because of our cloud-based architecture and continuous investment in innovation, customers receive an appreciating asset.

SilkStart is here for you

Our in-house Account Management team is here to learn about your business, your challenges, and to work with you to ensure you are using SilkStart optimally. We’re here to remove the technical hurdles so you can quickly and easily reap the benefits of SilkStart.

SilkStart is CMS neutral

You have the freedom to choose a website through WordPress, Squarespace, Drupal, Joomla, or SilkStart’s own Content Management System (CMS) to further reduce the costs of operating your association. Our database and member management tools integrate with any CMS.

SilkStart gives you confidence in budgeting

With SilkStart, you can count on having a low and predictable cost model. You’ll never be surprised by hidden fees.
