Membership, Chat Room, & Message Board all in One?

Is there a way to create or have created a program to do all three in one?

I have a Membership program, a Chat Room, and a Message Board. All three work just fine, but in order to allow my customers to access all three without an inconvenience to them I end up doing a ton of work. Is there something that is available or that someone could create to combine all three. What I mean is something that, when they register as members to access the site that will set them up to access all the programs without having to re-register for each one or without me having to manually add them to the others. In fact, if there is a way to do this without them having to log into each program, just logging in upon entering the site. Well, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I ran into the same question when I considered a chat room here - so I did give it quite a bit of thought, but this is a specific circumstance where I'm on intimate terms with the code.

As for off-the-shelf, I'm not aware of a specific program to recommend. There are some expensive "community" programs that include all three.

If it is in scripting, changing it to use one login is doable, but would require custom programming. If you don't know the programming, then it is probably not an option.

Some of the new releases of PhPNuke have XMBForum integrated and it has a chat feature. Same password runs across all of the areas.
