If you are interested in implementing or finding out more about the LOCATE  land tracker application for Salesforce please use our contact us form

CCLT engaged with us to help them select an affordable up to date platform that it could make available to all Land Trusts so they could track most all operations in a single piece of software.  We worked through a rigorous software selection process and in the end chose the Salesforce platform.

Subsequently, we then partnered with CCLT to develop a custom salesforce land tracking application (LOCATE).  We implemented Saleforce, the non-profit starter pack, and LOCATE with 6 of their member organizations, and helped CCLT commercialize LOCATE through the Salesforce App exchange.

We are now providing support to CCLT and their member organizations as well as partnering with CCLT to implement LOCATE to land trusts throughout the United States.

For more detail on LOCATE please see our  showcase.

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.

We have been providing CTO services for the American Friends Service Committee since 2010. We have been lead several projects including:

  • An overall technology assessment
  • Creating an intranet portal
  • Migrating their online CRM to Salsa

We have partnered with the Baltimore-Washington Conference on many projects over the years providing a variety of strategic and implementation services as well as support and training. One of our first projects was building their first Drupal based website and helping them select a church management software. We have since helped them upgrade their website and assisted them with integrating it with other back end software to ensure single sign on capabilities.

Although primarily self sufficient, BWC still seeks our help solving their more difficult and complex  integration problems.

We have a long history with UMCOM.  We were first introduced to UMCOM through our work at other United Methodist Organizations and asked to be on their inaugural National Web Ministry Advisory Board.  As members of the board, we helped shape how UMCOM would interact and provide training on Web Minsitry to the churches throughout the world.  

Through that involvement, Paul Keogan became the lead national web ministry trainer and for 3 years provided web ministry training to hundreds of churches across the US.

Later, UMCOM engaged us to help with other technology iniatives including the Imagine No Malaria project (INM).  UMCOM needed a high end donor and constituent management system that would allow them to mange this large and important global initiative.  Its current large commercial system could not do what UMCOM needed.   

We worked with the UMCOM team to choose CiviCRM and then implemented CiviCRM/Drupal and several advanced customizations and integrations.  Since going live, the CiviCRM has captured $10MM of donations.  In 2012, the effort was expanded to include registrations for "Bug" or "Skeeter" runs.
