Association of Dutch Business People


The Situation

The Association of Dutch Business People, an organisation based in Singapore, aims to unite the Dutch business community in this nation. Traditional modes had long been the modus operandi with flyers and word-of-mouth the primary means of publicity. A centralised online portal to connect the community did not exist.

Akimi was selected to build the web portal for the organisation to better be able to connect with its members. As ADB frequently organised interesting events to benefit their community, they required the online portal help with that aspect as well. Some of the requested features included an online forum for members to interact, online events sign-up functionality, pages to download articles & content, just to name a few.

Our Solution

In this web portal, Akimi created an events registration function for members to indicate their interest online while reflecting in a backend admin system to alert ADB staff. On the day of the event, the attendance list could be extracted in MS Excel to ensure smooth registration. The staff could also toggle between “Members Only” events and those open to the public.

Another problem we tackled was the hassle of collection of annual membership payments. Tracking membership – past and present – was also a headache. With the online portal, ADB could accept online payment through Stripe ( and automatically account for each sign up and membership renewal.

The Result

Much to the delight of our client, event registration became a breeze for both the members and organisers. Members were pleased with the ease of registration at the click of a button on the online portal, and ADB gave two thumbs up at the ease of extracting the attendance list on the event day.

Our client was also very satisfied that the online payment gateway which freed countless hours in administrative work due to streamlining and automation of the process. The accuracy and maintenance of records was also greatly enhanced, so that updated membership status was readily and easily available.
