Thanks to our developer Steve who just found this resource: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/  It’s a great web tool for desktop and mobile developers.  All you have to do is enter in a URL and it will return all the ways you can optimize your page or site to promote faster loading times.  This is particularly good for us now that we have moved to so many mobile and responsive sites. Thanks Google.  :)

inHealth Mutual Launch!!

•November 26, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Congrats to everyone at inHealth for the successful launch of their new website.  The site was built with a huge amount of custom workflow and business rules to assist with moving potential insurance applicants through the site so they could get a better quote on health insurance.  Our .Net team did a fantastic job working with everyone to get the project completed.  While we interfaced with more healthcare and IT vendors then we can count, the highlight was flying out to Texas to meet with their team  and getting a chance to meet  everyone face to face who helped us make this project a success.  Keep watching the site for more changes and your chance to participate in the new health care laws.

The Launching of the Goodwill Website

We have continued our efforts of helping out local non-profit and charity organizations by supporting Goodwill Columbus by helping them launch their new website.  It started out as a simple project and turned into a pretty monumental undertaking.  There are over 25 unique responsive templates built into their content management system.  We have to thank CPV (Conrad Phillips Vutech) for all their hard work preparing all the design and visuals for us.  Their leadership on the project and the design was fantastic and they really made our job a lot easier.  FYI: They’ve done a lot more work to help out Goodwill over the last few years then just this project and we appreciate that they gave us the opportunity this time.
Go ahead and play around with the site and see how customized all the pages are.  All the templates allow full control over the unique content with an extremely simple to use CMS system.  This prevents administrators from accidentally breaking the various pages by trying to edit them in a normal HTML editor.  It also gives them a lot more granular control over the content then a normal system would.  We also integrated a custom Google Maps interface to find their locations, the ability to donate online, and helped with some tweaks to their mobile app.
Overall it was a great site to develop but the best part was learning a ton more about what Goodwill actually does.  While we were building their site we found out that Goodwill is way more then the clothing stores and vehicle donations we are all familiar with.  You really need to go to the site and checkout their success stories to see what impact they really have.  Thanks again to Goodwill, CPV, and our PHP team for doing a great job on this website.
