After many weeks and months of meetings, the decision has been made to finally replace your old website with a shiny new one. Out with the old static site from several years ago and in with a new robust, modern web application which will form the hub for your online presence. You have done your due diligence and your platform of choice is Drupal (good choice we say!).
There is an immediate and obvious correlation between the effectiveness of an e-commerce application and the bottom line of a business. We specialize in creating truly customized solutions for an ever-changing commerce industry, including:
- Customizable entities
- Enterprise-level applications
- Product variation rendering
- Massive relationships
- Bulk processing
- Third-party connections
- Payment variations
- Multiple language support
- Order and shipping tracking
- Big data learning
- Customized user-focused content
Educational institutions face recurring business challenges:
- Increasing enrollment
- Engaging alumni
- Showcasing student life
- Positioning the school as a center of excellence
While longstanding data models apply to areas focused around students, staff, courses, etc., the prevalence of lookalike solutions to these data sets results in an online presence that makes one school look just like the next in terms of design and functionality.
We specialize in creating custom solutions to the major challenges that schools face. By utilizing proven technical solutions (contrib modules, profiles, known problems/solutions), we reduce development costs and time, while giving each education-industry client a unique voice and look and feel so each school captures the essence of the school body. More importantly, our work allows your school to engage audiences and deliver business results that map to each school’s goals.
Government projects typically have exacting scopes, deadlines and budgets that form absolute constraints on project balance. At Thinkbean, we have a proven history of working with government agencies within the boundaries of a tightly defined scope of work. By utilizing modern, agile development practices, we enable the best possible results time and time again. Our detailed and objective discovery and strategy phases allow for agreement around a project blueprint, executed in two-week sprints. Each sprint produces deliverable applications for review, reprioritization and release sign-offs by all stakeholders in a consistent and reliable manner.
Healthcare organizations deal with complex datasets which must be gathered, validated, processed, queried and returned to either the parent application or made available to other applications via API calls or synchronization scripts.
Data security, compliance criteria, and multiple stakeholder levels means healthcare applications are best handled by an experienced development agency with first-hand knowledge of the hurdles and opportunities faced within the industry. We have vast experience building both complex, enterprise-level, monolithic website applications for the healthcare industry as well as specific service apps which perform focused tasks in a PHI-compliant environment ensuring data security throughout the process.
At Thinkbean, we continue to deliver leading custom web-based software applications for the healthcare industry.
B2B-focused projects present unique challenges and often need an industry expert to interpret, develop and execute. We deliver custom websites and applications that focus on meeting objective business goals. Our clients benefit from our experience with search engine optimization (SEO), business strategy, technology integrations and customized business process automations. This expertise enables enterprises to grow in a scalable manner and allows them to focus on business strategy rather than technology concerns.
We pride ourselves on building sites that do something rather than just say something. The custom web applications we develop for our manufacturing clients showcase the possibilities this approach can achieve. Clients' businesses and the environment in which they work are uniquely tailored to their strategic vision; we create technological solutions to enable and enhance that vision.
There are entirely too many “brochure sites” on the web which have been regurgitated from a pre-existing profile and website template, and branded as a “digital solution” for nonprofits. Nonprofit organizations are as varied and bespoke as anything imaginable. Indeed, the category of “nonprofit” really doesn’t even categorize the focus of the organization. We build sites for nonprofit organizations – the uniqueness among them amazes even our team at times. Our customized, objective approach to understanding, defining and crafting sites and applications that achieve business and user goals allow our clients to showcase an online presence tailor-made for their organization.
For start-ups, the cost of failure for their web projects can mean failure for their business. Risking a cheaper solution to check off the “website project” to-do item is simply not a viable option for start-up companies that understand an effective web presence is integral to the success of their business.
The exciting opportunities that a start-up client brings to initial project discovery meetings aligns perfectly with our objective goal-driven approach. During the strategy phase of a project, we discover paths to technological solutions that align with business processes that free up company resources, and uncover initially unforeseen opportunities.
Using our agile development workflow, we define and implement a scalable, value-driven project timeline which allows the project scope to grow inline with the organization’s goals and resources.
What Does UX Have to Do With Web Development? Everything!
What is User Experience (UX)?
A website is like a garden. You have to water and tend a garden if you want it to be productive and enjoyable. A website’s user experience is the same way. It has to be carefully designed and constructed with the user in mind to generate the most fruit for a business. User experience is exactly what it sounds like: a user’s emotions and attitudes about a product, system or service.
