Dropped by the CCAD Student Art Fair in an effort to pick up some interesting pieces for the office! What a fantastic display of creative and talented pieces. Check out the artist’s website for more information regarding the pieces below: www.durdenart.com
Gardner, an existing Switchbox client, needed a quick and easy solution for their dealers to deliver engine installation procedures. The site had to be independent from their current site and have some very basic functions:
- Ability to search procedures and display results
- Create, Edit and Approve repower procedures
- An area where procedures were public and searchable
They didn’t want to focus on design, just the creation of a tool that would get the job done. Switchbox was able to take their vision and in less than a month, create a minimally designed site that covered all the bases for their project. Now that the project is complete and usable, they see new opportunities and will continue to refine the site as needs arise.
Joel and Steve had the privilege of visiting the Ronald McDonald House to meet with the Community Relations and Marketing Director, Ryan Wilkins. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio is located on the campus of Nationwide Children’s hospital and serves families and hospitalized children by providing a home-away-from-home. This space provides a place to rest, prepare meals, do laundry, etc., while keeping families close to the hospital. The Ronald McDonald House is exceptional in that they do not turn anyone away regardless of financial donation.
Joel and Steve received a tour of the facility as well as a more knowledgeable understanding of the Ronald McDonald’s vision and overall operation. This was such an exciting opportunity for Switchbox as we believe this organization to be a great attribute to our Columbus community. We are very much looking forward to working with them in the future.
For the past year, Switchbox has working on a portal website for the Center of Vocational Alternatives (COVA). COVA, a program of Southeast Healthcare Services, provides services which assist and support individuals in overcoming emotional and other challenges to a productive life, focusing on employment, economic stability and life skills. Their belief that all people have the capacity to grow and change ignited the RecoveryWorks program as a support system for empowering those needing support in their life’s journey.
Switchbox worked closely with Peebles Creative Group and COVA to create myrecoveryworks.com, a client support portal for Wellness Members. RecoveryWorks offers a way for COVA Recovery Guides to interact with Wellness Members who can also enlist others to support them by inviting and interacting with them within the site.
Some of the technical features Switchbox implemented were member and supporter registrations, a live chat and messaging feature, event listings and registrations and the ability to suggest and favorite specific entries that might be of interest to Wellness Members. Although COVA is not a medical provider, the site required HIPPA compliance in order to support a secure “file cabinet” feature that allows Wellness Members to upload and store files with access from any Internet supported device. COVA’s goal is to work with community organizations such as the library to extend access to the RecoveryWorks website.
