Examples of our work

We have been working with West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church (WOC) for several years on a variety of projects involving their church database management system, their website, event registrations, mass email functionality, and more.  

Examples of some of the areas we've worked on:

  • Develop a fully integrated church and clergy management system using CiviCRM, Jasper, and Drupal for their 1,000+ church and clergy organization.
  • New website for WOC and their camps; architected in all their district sites, foundations, and other related entities could housed with the same instance.
  • Church data entry system; an on line system for churches to enter their weekly attendance, baptisms, etc, and view graphs and charts measuring their progress and goals.


A Future with Hope, came to us looking for a volunteer registration and management system to enable their Sandy relief efforts.  They were trying to use a recommended commercial system, but that system was not able to provide the services they needed.

We recommended a CiviCRM/Drupal solution to enable the multi-step volunteer process they needed.  We worked with their team to develop the business processes and them implemented the solution within a very tight time frame on and a limited budget.

Today, A Future with Hope, is using the system to:

  • Take volunteer inquiries
  • Take initial volunteer group registration, take down payments for accommodations, and accept volunteer dates
  • Take final group registration, take final payment, and take detailed individual volunteer information
  • Send individual and mass emails
  • Volunteer data management
  • Volunteer reporting  

Homeless Voice (HV) came to us to help them with their WordPress/CiviCRM implementation.  We were able to move HV to a better hosting enviroment (CiviHosting -- a great/best hosting facility for smaller non profits) and help them to design and think through their donation, receipt and thankyou note strategy.

We would love to take credit for their phenomenal website design, but that was all done in-house by Homeless Voice.

The Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) engaged with us because they were having significant issues with their CiviCRM and Drupal site.   They were looking for a partner with experience in CiviCRM and Drupal who also were creative and could work within their budget.    This seemed like a perfect match, especially because of our experience in environment and conservation space.

Quickly we were able to solve SFCs most pressing issues and then, with with executive director, developed a plan to significantly improve their technology offerings to better engage their members and promote their cause.  

We've been working through this plan at a steady and controlled pace to deliver the highest value within their budget.  Our partnership grows stronger each month!

Our work includes:

  • Finding Eco friendly companies using Drupal views and CiviCRM views integration.
  • Creating a rotating logo display using views slideshow, blocks, CiviCRM views integration with some custom PHP
  • Improving the bulk mail delivery

BackOffice Thinking and APGA have formed a strategic partnership that continues to grow deeper and stronger.  

We initially engaged during APGA's migration to iMIS; during this project we integrated their Drupal website with iMIS creating a unified sign (Drupal and iMIS) and several member only services such as their professional section (utilizing Drupal's organic groups).

Since the initial project we have delivered several smaller Drupal projects, provide support for iMAS and Drupal, and work with APGA to develop technology strategy and longer term plans.

In 2013 we worked with APGA's strategic partner ecoAmerica to develop YouTopia, a site about  climate change for visitors of public gardens.
