Industry-leading social networking software
You can expect a complete set of Social Networking services and features, as described in our Product Tour.
Plus you are welcome to see them in action on our Demo Site.
Essentially, the following key features set our product apart from other solutions, giving you the competitive edge.
Powerful User Management & Security
All of the social networking services are integrated into our User Management System. Its purpose is to identify users, decide internally which activities and resources they can access, and possibly charge users for access to those areas. Our Locks & Keys approach to managing access rights gives you unparalleled power for member access and control.

Credits-based E-Commerce Accounting
We offer a ‘Credits’ based e-commerce system across all collaboration services. Credits are a community’s unit of currency, which you can use to charge for services. A member maintains an e-wallet (in the form of 'credits' applied to his account) and uses it to pay for services. I.E., place an ad in the classifieds, download a file from the File Libraries - all without having to pull out a credit card each time.

You are in control, not us
The netVillage Social Networking Engine is a commercial off-the-shelf package, not a service (though you can use our hosting service if you wish). Other solution providers force you into a hosting model. What if they go out of business? Decide to change the rules? Change the branding? With netVillage you're in control, independent, and in charge of your own destiny.
Our community services were designed and developed to work with each other from the ground up. Other providers cobble together software applications from multiple vendors (under the banner 'best of breed'), resulting in a hodgepodge mix of services and a disruptive, inconsistent community experience.
Our social networking software has been developed and fine-tuned over many, many years. We've incorporated feed back from a very large customer base and as a result our software is highly configurable with a vast array of configuration features (5,000 at last count!). This gives you the flexibility to create your ideal online service.
