Welcome to River; the market leading content management system for membership organisations.

Back in 2004 we took on our first membership client and provided them with a website which would see their organisation excel for their members. We found that the organisation had a really specific set of things they wanted from their system, and that River was well equipped to deal with their request. A year later we had partnered with another membership organisation and found that their needs were similar to our other client in this sector. Again, River lent itself beautifully to the project and it dawned on us that the future of River was to mould it to fit the needs of all membership organisations.

Today, a community of more than 45 membership organisations are using River to improve and update their web presence. 

Each and every client we collaborate with has a say in the development of River, and their invaluable feedback helps us to ensure that River is the perfect CMS for the membership industry. We’re constantly working on ways to improve River, and thanks to feedback and support from our clients, we’ve come up with a multitude of new modules and services. These constant updates not only make River- and our client’s sites- future-proof, it also means that we have our finger on the pulse of the needs of the membership community. We’re proud that River is not only developed for membership organisations, but also by them!
