All set up and subscription charges for added modules are waived until June 30th 2020.

You have the option to add on any of our modules listed below. Simply select the modules you would like and we will put them through an accelerated deployment process so that they can start delivering your community value as fast as possible.

Crisis Response Virtual Roundtables

We are going to host a series of virtual roundtables to create connections between the many engagement professionals we work with. All attendees will be invited to share their biggest challenges from this crisis and how they are responding to them.

Our clients will receive invitations to these events as they are arranged. The first will be mid-April.
