Long Wing Education Consulting helps schools achieve success in all areas of education, from administration to student performance. Wanting to detail their approach to a large range educational challenges, the company chose a Drupal-based solution to organize and maintain hundreds of pages of content. To help their visitors navigate the vast amount of information, we developed a dynamicly-populated drop-down menu system. We also designed and imlpemented a custom theme including flyout menus and a rotating banner, as well as built out a multi-question job application system that provides an interface for Long Wing staff to sort and filter candidates by specific criteria.
It's hard to manage the disparate content of 25 individual schools and that of many more unique departments, as well as maintain consistency in both presentation and quality—administrators at Kalamazoo Public Schools know this first hand. They came to us with the lofty goal of doing just that. We worked closely with the district's technology department to build out a new, Drupal-based system that offered a smorgasbord of features: events scheduling and calendars, news articles and alerts, school and staff directories, updateable rotating text and banner, as well as various sub-sites that are accessible and/or manageable by specific user groups. And it all had to integrate with their existing systems, user accounts, and databases. Additionally, we provided website design services, giving the entire website a cohesive and easy-to-use look and feel, matching the school district's existing branding.
The Economic History Association (EHA) is a membership organization that fosters scholarly interest in the field of economic history. Members use the website to promote events and publications as well as provide information on the grants and fellowships awarded by the group. Wanting to take better advantage of their Drupal platform, EHA contracted us to upgrade and consolodate systems as well as create a web-based method for accepting and reviewing applications for grants and fellowships. EHA committee members can now review and rate applications through their website interface, streamlining the approval proccess. We also gave the new EHA website an updated look and feel with a custom theme.

The student-run newspaper for the University of North Carolina, The Daily Tar Heel, "is one of the most decorated college newspapers in the country." Priding themselves on top-notch journalism and state-of-the-art delivery, the staff wanted to upgrade their website to offer more of the industry-standard features found on national online newspapers. We partnered with Stunt3 Multimedia to build a online news delivery system that met the visionary demands of the Daily Tar Heel team, and could handle the tens of thousands of visitors they serve every month. The resulting product, CrystalType, integrates with WoodWing Enterprise, a leading newspaper publishing software suite, to provide push-button publishing to the web.

The Rotary Club of Ann Arbor wanted to liven up their website with a complete redesign. In the process, they also decided to upgrade functionality and relaunch with a content management system, giving their members more control over the content as well as laying the ground for future improvements. We worked with the club to refine the website's look and feel and implement a Drupal backend. Their system now provides a collaborative calendar, blog, online newsletter, membership forms, and password-protected pages for special and committees. Over the coming months, the club plans to add a database-driven membership directory.
