About Us

Who are we?

We are a software firm specializing in building, optimizing, securing, and hosting e-commerce workflows for associations. We provide all the tools and expertise to allow your IT department, whether 10 strong or a single part-time volunteer, to leverage the latest technologies and build the best experience possible.

After 20 years we remain self funded.

As other AMS vendors enter new rounds of capital investment as they struggle with the growing demands of new technology, Oasis Computing's lean and agile approach allows us to remain self funded, and therefore, focused on building the best possible solutions for the least amount of money.

For almost twenty years Oasis Computing, a relatively small Canadian software firm, has been successfully competing in the same space as the large AMS firms boasting 200+ employees.

Our approach to steady, managed growth allows our team to maximize our clients' value while ensuring all of our clients enjoy significant, frequent improvements at no extra cost. Our latest version is the result of a 15-year prototype phase which included over 20 national associations as they navigated the transition from back-office systems to fully shared, open workflows with their online members.

How have we been so successful?

Back in the early 2000's this was a tough hill to climb since the cost of going to market was far more expensive than it is today. As a small firm of highly-motivated developers, Oasis has been able to speak directly to the specific needs of each new client we talked to, rather than take a generic approach to system building.

Being small also meant that we needed highly efficient architecture in order to rapidly build out new modules and host thousands of online transactions per minute.

Being small greatly eases the pressure to be everything to everyone, allows us to focus on successful partnerships and nurture long term relationships that allow our clients to save money, effort, and time year after year.

With the introduction of Association Server 3.0 and the advent of new advanced and accessible digital technologies, our ability to compete with the large players in our space has never been stronger. It is our intention to remain an intimate company focused on our clients' success. Our vision for growth emanates from our strong and solid HQ core, expanding our reach by providing global leadership as Association Server is re-branded by regional implementation specialists.

In 2012, Association Server 3.0 was launched - a completely revamped ASP.NET MVC application boasting 100% backwards compatibility for all of our hosted clients and leveraging the latest in Microsoft .NET web technologies and the Orchard community driven CMS.
