About the team at UpAbility

Our team at UpAbility is part of a long, proven history of providing unsurpassed customer service. Whether your questions concern reporting, e-Commerce, branding or any other part of managing your LMS, our team is here to help. Meet them below!

Why UpAbility?

In 2016, we launched UpAbility, a learning management and e-Commerce system that makes it easy for you to scale your content and offer it to members so that they can grow personally and professionally.

We help association executives leverage live event content and use it to help them engage and retain members more efficiently. Because our LMS grew out of a team focused on customer support, UpAbility’s clients enjoy personal training on the system for staff members and people to turn to with any questions.

In addition to our learning management system, UpAbility provides video production services for live events, which allows us to deliver customized video presentations and live streaming for associations. We serve education, financial, healthcare, government, investor relations, information technology, legal, sales and marketing sectors.
