It gives us the ability to rapidly create and deploy new communities and quickly respond with conversational channels that help us meet the needs of members and stakeholders.”
With the help of Telligent’s partners, Sitecore and Precedent, the BMA plans to build a range of online communities that address the diverse needs of different local and devolved nation structures as well as the various branches of practices.
