The Community Roundtable Chooses Higher Logic as its New Community Platform

The Community Roundtable & Higher Logic

The Community Roundtable, a professional development network for community, social media and social business professionals, will launch a new community platform for its current member community, TheCR Network. It chose Higher Logic, an industry leader in cloud-based, online community platforms.

The Community Roundtable focuses on advancing the business of community through research, education and TheCR Network – an unparalleled resource for community professionals. Organizations around the globe, from Fortune 500 brands to associations and start-ups, leverage the power of their communities to achieve business goals more efficiently, collaborate more effectively and communicate more openly with their audiences. Higher Logic has been a pioneer of this community strategy, building dynamic, private online communities for organizations worldwide.

“Higher Logic offers a great platform and dedicated people who understand The Community Roundtable’s long-term strategy for TheCR Network,” says Jim Storer, co-founder of The Community Roundtable. “Their track record with over 500 clients proves they understand how to meet our needs for relationship building and member satisfaction.”

As best practices for community engagement and strategy continue to evolve, Higher Logic offers an organizational community model useful for any group, from communications and marketing to client support and recruiting. The cornerstone of the Higher Logic platform is a cohesive, collaborative environment for community members to engage and network with each other, surrounded by community management knowledge and resources.

TheCR Network’s members will interact with a platform that is fully responsive, including unlimited discussions and libraries, modules for events and ongoing programs and enhanced email functionality, all to help members connect faster and easily engage in the community on their own terms.

“The Community Roundtable is a major thought leader in the community space,” says Hunter Montgomery, Higher Logic’s chief marketing officer. “We are excited to have them as a community partner, and look forward to great input and feedback from them regarding our product. We also hope to see them participating and asking questions on the Higher Logic Users Group (HUG), where we’ve put our own community platform to practice for our clients.”

The new community announcement follows the release of The Community Roundtable’s State of Community Management Report 2015, sponsored by Higher Logic.
