ActionKit

ActionKit is one of the most powerful toolkits available on the market. ActionKit allows for unparalleled customization in almost all aspects, and also features a powerful database with direct access for the end user. The trade off for Action Kit's power is that it is less accessible for those with little technical knowledge. While NationBuilder can be learned by those with little or no HTML experience, ActionKit requires knowledge of HTML, jQuery, and Django to fully access all of its customization options. ActionKit also doesn't offer an easy to use end user support system. If you don't have someone familiar with relational databases and mySQL,  you will not be able to utilize ActionKit to its fullest potential.

Fortunately, Richir Outreach excels at working with ActionKit. One of the few firms recommended by AK, Richir Outreach can give you a great looking template set for your ActionKit pages. Whether matching an already deployed website, or coming up with a new theme, we can create a template set that works for you. We also have a great deal of experience in customizing the templates in terms of functionality. If you want to leverage all of ActionKit's power, we can give you capabilities beyond those offered by the base ActionKit template set.

Richir Outreach also is extremely familiar with ActionKit's database structure, and how to write the queries that get the report you want out of it. Since ActionKit collects an amazing amount of information about each action users perform, and also allows for direct database access, there is practically no limit to the questions you can ask your database. Richir Outreach has worked extensively with other organizations using ActionKit, and that gives us an edge when working with the Database.
