Makerspace membership management tool.
We were trying to setup a makerspace ourself and we found it really difficult with the amount of stuff that needs to be done.

We are building a tool for membership management for makerspaces. Our objective is simply running a makerspace operations so there are more amazing makerspaces around the world.

This tool will have the following functionalities:

1. Multiple membership plan details
2. Automated membership payment collection
3. Member access permissions/tool usage permission
4. Tool certification for members
5. Member demography and contact information
6. Member emergency contact information
7. Equipment / space rental management/waiting list
8. Managing members in a discussion

Pricing/Open Source:
This entire code will be free and open source. You can customize it to meet the requirement of your makerspace.

Which makerspace do you represent?
Your answer
What tools are you using for membership management now? How do you know which member has what level of membership, what level of permissions?
e.g. We use paypal subscriptions for membership collection, use google spreadsheets to know which member has what level of membership. On the same google spreadsheet we also mention the members tools and access permissions. On another spreadsheet we handle equipment reservation (laser cutter, waterjet).
