Member management application

The portal is a combination of two application, one is a public website, accessible to anyone on the internet, without login and password authentication.

The public area displays general information about the organization. It also has a member area accessible only to users with an account (login and password). Second application is to manage the all the members and coordinators of the system, it is a restricted area allows members to edit their profile, look at other members’ profiles, plan trips, find hosts, etc.

The application/portal has 3 major roles; host, travellers and coordinators. Our solution that would serve as a single access point for all members of the system to manage their account and it is a medium to interact each other.

The key section of the portal is the members’ administration section. This section will handle the complete member accounts and related activities. The Members Administration application is accessible to members who have administrative roles, using their member account. Actions performed in the Members Administration application have no impact on the content of the public website. The main sections are Application, Renewals, eStamp, Member administration, Administration members, Roles & permissions, Accounting.
