Employers and Manufacturers Association Northern

For the Employers and Manufacturers Association Northern (New Zealand), the .NET mBO WebServices middleware allowed the integration of iMIS® and a .NET internet based web site accessed by EMA’s members.

"Metisc responded quickly when we needed a fast and simple way of connecting our custom .NET website with our important iMIS® Membership system"

Anil Kunjunny, Technical Analyst - Business Applications & BI


EMA Northern were having issues connecting to their iMIS® Membership System managing. With over 10,000 people attending Training and Events, and over 9,500 people attending our seminars annually, we needed a better solution for integrating our systems with our iMIS® System.


The solution was to replace some older Web Services with Metisc’s mBO WebServices allowing rapid deployment of new functionality, and opening up a number of alternative Content Management Systems which already worked with the Metisc mBO WebServices.

  • iMIS® runs on Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft IIS.
  • The Metisc mBO WebServices provided capabilities for integration including Single Sign-On, Contacts, Events, Sales and Subscriptions.
  • Developed using Microsoft’s .Net 4.0 and delivering integration capabilities such as JSON, REST and SOAP, the “mBO’s” ran on our existing infrastructure and worked with both ODBC and SOA connectivity made available by iMIS®.


Works with Microsoft ... Works with iMIS®

The existing infrastructure supported the Metisc mBO WebServices.

Great Support

Metisc, a Microsoft Partner, assisted with the delivery, training and ongoing support for our developers, including developing some custom code when necessary.


The mBO’s are an Australian Information Industry Association iAward winning product for connecting CMS systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal; to CRM and Accounting systems like iMIS®, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and MYOB/MYOB EXO providing flexibility and choice in web platform.
