Back in 2000 a large professional association asked the parent company of ProposalSpace, db interactive, to create a website for collecting abstracts from potential speakers for their annual conference. (Up until then abstracts were emailed, mailed, or faxed in.) The initial solution was fairly basic—little more than a simple web form for uploading PDFs.
Over time the site grew to incorporate more features with the latest technology. In 2004 it was redesigned to make it easier for other organizations to use. However, it was still a package of software that needed to be customized to fit each organization's needs.
Around the same time the team at db interactive was starting to see a clear need for an easily managed, low-cost, online abstract management system, especially for smaller associations. So in 2008 they formed a new company, retooled the system once again, and launched ProposalSpace.com as its own website.
The site wasn't really ready for prime time, however, until 2010 when the core framework of what is now ProposalSpace was established.
Since then the site has grown to include a number of new features and optional modules, including the Advanced Scheduling Module, Publishing Module, and Demographics Module.
What Sets ProposalSpace Apart
ProposalSpace is built from the ground up to give users all the tools they need to get the job done and then to get out of their way.
That's not to say you're on your own; Help is always just a phone call or email away. But unlike with most other abstract-management companies, you don't have to go through an account manager every time you want something done. ProposalSpace puts everything you need right at your fingertips so you can take care of things exactly how and when you want.
