The CFP Board was awarded the “Moving the Needle” distinction for their efforts to create bundled Practice Exam products in netFORUM with an integration to their Internet Testing Systems (ITS) for seamless delivery and tracking of results. Gravitate Solutions, formerly Old Town IT, integrated CFP Board’s instance of netFORUM with ITS to provide a single sign-on experience for purchasing and taking the exam, leading to a 29% increase in the number of registrants signing up for the Practice Exam.

ACFE was awarded the “Force for Good” distinction for creating a self-service portal for users to manage and submit their application materials to become Certified Fraud Examiners. Gravitate Solutions, formerly Old Town IT, helped ACFE leverage Abila’s netFORUM to create the portal that has since eased the candidate’s application process, eliminated paperwork, and drastically reduced staff time spent on manual application processes.

“The CFP Board and ACFE are examples of leading associations that strive to offer their members the most innovative technology solutions. Gravitate Solutions, formerly Old Town IT, is proud to partner with these organizations and help them achieve their technology goals,” said Tim Ward, president and CEO of Gravitate Solutions.
