We build brochure websites and simpler web applications using WordPress, a popular and easy-to-use open source content management system. An extensive library of free and premium software plugins for WordPress is available, allowing the rapid addition of new capabilities to your site. We typically build sites using the powerful Toolset components, which considerably expand WordPress's capabilities.
We build more complex websites and web applications using Drupal, a powerful and comprehensive open source content management system that can easily scale as your business grows. There are thousands of pre-existing free software components for this platform which can be combined to implement almost anything that you might require of your site.
For small businesses and non-profit organizations, we can also build many such websites on the Backdrop variant of Drupal, which provides better performance on inexpensive hosting, a simplified administrative interface, and a lower long-term cost of ownership.
We offer E-commerce options that integrate your web store seamlessly into your website. This ensures that it uses your site's branding, and that your site will receive search engine credit for your store's content.
You may require custom business functions or capabilities from your website. Here are some examples that we've built for our clients:
- event registration
- college scholarship application/review system
- custom databases, such as organization member profiles
- different content and features for different site users
- purchaseable levels of site resource access, with automatic renewal
- flexible content categorization and searching
- automated import/export of data from/to external databases
- client-specified rule-based site behavior

Non-proft organizations can greatly benefit from a comprehensive approach to managing their contacts with their contact and donors, and a constituent relationship manager (CRM) provides the tools to make that possible. We work with CiviCRM, a popular free, open-source option that integrates directly with your WordPress, Drupal, or Backdrop website. It's a modular system that provides a wide variety of features:
- contact management
- membership management
- event management
- contribution management
- case management
- grant management
- bookkeeping integration
- E-mail marketing
CiviCRM also supports a growing library of free extensions to add new functionality, such as volunteer management.
We can build a new website for you that includes CiviCRM, or add it to an existing WordPress, Drupal, or Backdrop website.
All content management systems are software applications which requires periodic updates to maintain their security and proper function. We offer an inexpensive maintenance service to take care of it for you.
Conversions and Upgrades
If you have an existing website that you'd like to convert to one of our modern platforms, we'd be happy to discuss that with you. We can also upgrade outdated or unmaintained Drupal or WordPress sites, or redesign them to be mobile-friendly. Contact us to find out more.
