International Association of Directional Drilling WebsiteHOUSTON, June 24, 2016
 –Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform, is pleased to release a mobile-responsive membership website for the International Association of Directional Drilling. The website, www.iadd-intl.org, provides a platform for members to collaborate on industry standards and share technical knowledge for the benefit of the entire community.

From the IADD website:

The International Association of Directional Drilling (IADD) is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting directional drilling, as well as advancing the technology, competence and knowledge of its members. IADD is also focused on helping the industry develop standards that will ensure the safest and most effective directional drilling operations.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution to give organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence. Of the top 20 Membership Management Software (MMS) platforms globally-ranked by Capterra, Tendenci is the only open source product on the list.

IADD recognized the importance of hosting a community website for their peers to network and share information. Using the Tendenci platform, IADD was able to quickly launch a website that had all of the features they needed to run the organization. Membership management, event registration, job board, community forums, press releases, articles, and newsletters all come standard with Tendenci. Using a mobile-responsive template for the layout, IADD was able to launch a fully functional, customized website with all of their member data in a matter of weeks. 

The new website has quickly become a resource for other professionals in the directional drilling industry to get the latest news and attend networking and educational events. IADD is actively seeking new members, volunteers and corporate sponsors to pursue their objectives of sharing knowledge and improving industry technology and processes.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including the Society of Petroleum Engineers - Gulf Coast Section (www.spegcs.org), the American Citizens Abroad organization (www.americansabroad.org), and the San Francisco Bay Area Innovation Group (www.sfbig.org).
