IPIC tasked Ignite with the consolidation of its various databases and systems into a single association management system. As such our duties included the implementation of a database which would serve as the secure central storage for membership information and e-commerce tools such as an on-line store, event + webinar registration, on-line courses, membership application/renewal and information management tools.

As part of the project all communications were done in both official languages and there are several secure portals which serve as member and committee areas.
