Who We Are

We are passionate technologists serving member-based organizations. We live and breathe databases – and data – and use tools like Bootstrap, Power BI, and netFORUM to make the world a better place. We are masters of our crafts; our team is highly trained in the tools we use, because there are no shortcuts to success.

Technology projects are defined by the ability to navigate challenge. We diagnose each problem and craft an elegant solution, because not every problem is a nail, so not every solution is a hammer. We wake up every day with the goal of creating value, because we believe a pot of black coffee and a good idea can change the world.

The extra mile? It’s in the rear-view mirror on our quest to deliver surprise and delight. Welcome to Gravitate.

Gravitate is the leading provider of database, ecommerce, and analytics solutions to the membership industry. With deep expertise in the sector, and a reputation for quality deliverables, Gravitate has become the most trusted technology partner for the most influential membership organizations in the country. Through our innovative solutions, Gravitate helps organizations manage and know their members, conduct commerce with ease, and make decisions with confidence. As data has become the center of the decision-making process, Gravitate developed a state-of-the-art data analytics platform, Nucleus, to uncover important member trends, behaviors, and insights across all an organization’s solutions.

Founded by Tim Ward, the original product architect of the NetForum AMS, Gravitate lives and breathes association technology.


Data is our passion – after designing the modern AMS, Tim had another great idea – dramatically improve reporting and analysis at associations! Nucleus Data Analytics aggregates data from all member-industry sources and delivers insights to your entire staff. The Nucleus Community is a robust and full-featured social community built specifically for associations. It provides everything your members and constituents need in an online forum and  integrates with your AMS, your members’ email, and to our Nucleus Data Analytics platform.


AMS services are our foundation and Gravitate has provided industry-best consulting, implementation, product upgrade and customization services to associations for more than a dozen years. In this time, hundreds of associations have made Gravitate their technology partner because of our deep software development and integration expertise, unmatched client-services commitment, and proven track record for delivering projects on time and within budget.

Our Work Speaks For Itself

This is truly amazing work. Thanks to Gravitate Solutions for all the effort you poured in this. The delivered product is just outstanding…

I could not be more pleased with the work Gravitate Solutions did for my organization. NACHA needed to integrate NetForum and convert our existing website to a new CMS. It was clear right from the start that OTI understood our requirements.…

Why I like working with Gravitate Solutions …they know the NetForum Association Management software system inside and out. They take a personal ownership of our problems and solutions. They provide oversight and follow-up on all the projects we have given to them. I would recommend their expertise to anyone wanting a finished project that works and works well.

The Gravitate Solutions deliverables were professional and very understandable. I believe we received excellent value for the project.

Gravitate Solutions provided both excellent guidance and deliverables as ASHA made the challenging change to a fully responsive design. The end result of their work on our code was thoughtful, high quality, and 100% responsive. Equally important to us was the knowledge they transferred about updating our front end to a fully responsive interface with a NetForum database. They communicated the process we should use and pitfalls to be mindful of with clarity, insight, and patience. In addition to their technical expertise and experience, they are pleasant, helpful people to work with!

ASNT needed our onsite registration process streamlined. Gravitate Solutions came up with a simple and straightforward way to achieve this in a manner which was easy and intuitive for our staff. All deliverables were either on time or early which allowed us ample time to test before use at our conference. When 3rd party software (Adobe’s Acrobat) changed, they didn’t hesitate to look into how that caused a problem and how to correct the situation. All of our interactions with them were professional and at the same time personable.…

Gravitate Solutions has knowledgeable staff with exceptional business analysis and IT skills. They helped us develop the functionality that worked for our organization. They took the time to analyze our requirements and create a solution that fits our budget and our timeline.

Gravitate Solutions deliverables represent a pride of workmanship in their projects that is extremely rare for an AMS vendor today.

Gravitate Solutions is a true partner to AMIA.  Their thoroughness, expertise and trusted counsel is the reason we have been able to navigate a complex system upgrade and have a functioning system.

With Gravitate’s Google Analytics extension we have solid figures to calculate ROI for each of our digital channels rather than using ambiguously determined goals, sessions, or clicks. We have access to new insights that we were only able to make assumptions about before.

When we have a project that involves customizing NetForum, we turn to Gravitate Solutions. They start by taking the time to understand our goals, ask all the right questions, and help us create requirements that ensure the solution will meet all of our needs. Their (outstanding/in-depth/comprehensive) knowledge of the NetForum system allows them to offer solutions we would not have considered on our own. The development and implementation of the solution is completed quickly, with a minimum of our staff’s time spent testing, because it’s always done right the first time!

Gravitate Solutions has far exceeded our expectations. They are organized, efficient and a fantastic value. That is why Gravitate Solutions is our “go-to” vendor for all NetForum iWeb and eWeb customizations.

Thank you for everything that you do for us!!!

There are many things that put Gravitate Solutions at the top of our list of vendors and development partners. I especially appreciate the fact that they take the ‘long view’ in their design of software solutions. They help you design a solution that balances immediate need and budget with the total cost of ownership.

I feel we now have a partner who has deep knowledge, understands our issues and collaborates closely with us to achieve our goals.

Your team really came through for us on a tight timeline. I think it’s highly unlikely we would have reached our goal without you.
