Technology Assessments & Planning

Equip your organization with visionary tools and solutions

We have cultivated a deep understanding of technology to bring positive sustaining change to our clients and communities. We dive into your organization's use of technology, particularly around your web presence, to help you strategize, plan and implement the best path forward. We develop with the highest standards of code and development workflow to ensure efficiency, security, and quality.

1. Technical Audits

The Technical Assessment, or Audit, is an investigation, by way of meetings and examination of data such as reports, forms, spreadsheets, and so on. During the investigation, technology assets will be identified and cataloged. Every system used to conduct operations will be described and classified, including in some cases maps of important data flows within the organization and between outside actors (partners, clients regulating bodies, etc.).

2. Custom Application Development

Need something special or unique that doesn’t fit into the CMS (content management system) paradigm? Need to manage and display thousands or millions of data points or build a custom application? Beyond our deep experience customizing and stretching the capabilities of Drupal, we also build fully custom web applications using the Symfony framework. Symfony provides data persistence with continued regression testing and infinite scalability for enterprise level applications.

3. Systems Integration

Make sure your tools and products are talking to each other effectively. Let us walk you through systems integration, strategic planning, and implementation to increase customer satisfaction, data accuracy, and internal efficiency.

4. Accessibility

The digital accessibility legal landscape continues to expand as our lives shift ever more online. We can help you implement the necessary accessibility adjustments to your site, ensuring that your organization is not only on par with requirements such as ADA compliancy, but also making your content more readily accessible to your user base.

5. Performance + Security

We specialize in performance enhancements that guarantee your site loads quickly - important not only for user satisfaction, but absolutely necessary for organizations working around the globe where connectivity is questionable.

No one wants their digital footprint vulnerable to those looking to exploit their data. We utilize cutting edge security technologies and stay up to date on industry trends and changes, so that your website and database stay protected from security threats of any kind.

6. Data Modeling

Create a sustainable, scalable, and reliable web-based tool by understanding what data is going into your website or application, and how that data flow influences relationships and user experience.
