What 'AJAX' means and why non-profits should care?

Lori Halley 03 January 2007 0 comments

AJAX is a pretty techy term (it stands for Asynchronous JAvaScript and XML ). It has been a buzzword among geeks for the last few years – but why should a non-profit organization care about it?

Simply put, AJAX technology helps to build web applications that provide better user experience. They react faster and more convenient, mimicking the interface and features of desktop software, for example Microsoft Office.

As you might know, Wild Apricot is built on Microsoft technology (“ASP.Net”). What you might not know is that Wild Apricot makes heavy use of Microsoft version of AJAX technology. That’s why upon reviewing our product, Microsoft has chosen to profile Wild Apricot as one of the showcases for their ASP.NET AJAX technology.

This new technology allows Wild Apricot to deliver better user experience for administration functionality within each account. For example, Wild Apricot enables non-technical people in non-profit organizations to directly update their webpages, customize member database and handle online event registrations.
