Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

Alliance engaged with us to update their CRM, eCommerce systems, and many of their websites. The process of migrating their CRM data was particularly challenging because of how the data was captured in their older system; we basically had to re-engineer their older system during the conversion.

Designing a Mobile-First Online Magazine:

(Blog Post)

We partnered with And Sons Magazine to design and deploy a mobile-ready online monthly magazine.  We took a mobile-first and minimalist approach to this site as the target audience are millennials who by nature are tech savy and tend to visit the web through their mobile device.  In addition, the minimalist design approach allows users to focus on the high level photography that is an essential part of every issue’s content.  Read on to see some of the elements that make this an engaging, modern and functional user-centric website.

Ransomed Heart Ministries

Greater New Jersey Conference of the United Methodist Church

A Future with Hope came to us looking for a volunteer registration and management system to enable their Sandy relief efforts.  They were trying to use a recommended commercial system, but that system was not able to provide the services they needed.

We recommended a CiviCRM/Drupal solution to enable the multi-step volunteer process they needed.  We worked with their team to develop the business processes and then implemented the solution within a very tight time frame on a limited budget.
