Custom Development
Special development services are available through RAMCO to cover the needs of individual associations provided that what is developed does not interfere with any of the core functions of the RAMCO system. Call to request a quote for your particular enhancement or modification.


Working With the REALTOR Federal Credit Union

RAMCO has arranged with the REALTORS® Federal Credit Union to offer loans to associations that would prefer to spread the one-time Implementation Fee and/or Sitefinity website costs over a multi-year period. Learn more at or call their Business Accounts division at 301.355.7575.


Definitions of Terms Used in this Pricing Model

Custom Attributes

These are customized data fields in which you enter data under a basic member record such as name, address, etc.  These fields are called “attributes” for that record and are what creates an “entity”.  For example, say the entity is a member contact record.  It would be made up of the “attributes” for first name, last name, e-mail address, phone number, etc.  When you create a custom entity, you have to create custom attributes to name and hold the important data.

Custom Entities
A custom table or “Set of Information”.  An entity in RAMCO AMS is equivalent to a database table. In other words, it’s the way information is stored in the system, and RAMCO AMS allows you to create as many custom ones as you need. That’s a huge leap over most other systems that have nowhere near that same flexibility.

Web Portal Design Template
This template is what gives style and branding to the online portal. The web portal design template uses your existing Association branding (or any branding options you specify), such as logos and color palette, to match your existing website. The template includes a header and footer with basic information about your Association.

Web Portal
The portal is a basic online interface that allows your members, as well as anyone else you allow access, to interact with your AMS. Through the portal you can offer course and event registration, host an online calendar of upcoming events, sell products, host a searchable member or office directory, allow members to pay dues as well as update their profile and contact information. The portal is not meant to be a replacement for your existing website. For a complete website package please refer to the Sitefinity upgrade.

The total number of accounts (offices) and contacts (members).

Users are assigned to a designated staff individual.  Named users cannot be switched but may be substituted if a staff person leaves.

Single Source Import
This refers to the transfer of data from an association’s old system to RAMCO.  “Single source” refers to one of the approved membership systems. Approved systems are as follows:
ASI iMIS – Version 15.x or 10.x
Rapattoni Magic – Version 9 or NetMagic 1.x
Fidelity LAMPS – Version 3.x or 2.x
MarketLinx MMSI/Membership Director – Version 6.x or 5.x
Avectra NetForum – Version 2010 or 3.0

If an association has data stored outside their current vendor’s system such as in a separate Access database or Excel spreadsheets, there may be an additional charge for importing it into the system.  However, RAMCO’s system comes with good import tools so an association could import its own Excel information (being careful not to overwrite more recent or accurate information).

Sitefinity is a complete content management system for creating websites.  It provides templates for page design and allows you to design your own pages using simple interfaces.  It provides for discussion boards, blogging and membership surveys as well as full integration with the RAMCO system and is designed to replace your current website. It is best used in conjunction with the web portal so members and non-members can interact with your association website in a seamless way.

Web-Based Training

Training sessions will be conducted via conference calls using an online conferencing system.  An agenda and training material will be sent in advance and the session recorded for future use.  An on-line library of video training tutorials covering standard RAMCO features will also be available.
