Tendenci 5’s content management system (CMS) makes it easy for NABIS to add and edit content, manage membership applications and renewals, promote and manage events, and keep members updated on the latest news.  

“We have members only come together once a year from throughout North America, so it is imperative that we have an easy-to-use, intuitive site that serves as a platform for educational exchange for members,” said Margaret Roberts, Executive Director, Administration with NABIS. “Tendenci’s membership management features are a significant improvement and have made us more efficient and better positioned to add value to our members.”

SchipulCon Viral Video Showcases Open Source Celebrity Smackdown

Drupal and Wordpress Founders Debate Their Open Source ProductsHOUSTON, October 20, 2011 – Responding to requests from the open source community, Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and Web design firm, has quickly published video of the first joint appearance by Drupal founder Dries Buytaert and WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg. The video from SchipulCon 2011, posted at www.schipulcon.com/dries-matt/, features a frank discussion about the similarities and differences of the two leading open source platforms and where they are headed in the future. 

SchipulCon 2011 (www.schipulcon.com), with the theme, “Create. Profit. Reach,” was a marketing, technology and business conference for Houston’s business-savvy and tech-curious crowd. The event attracted more than 200 participants, 40 presenters covering a broad array of subjects including the future of social, search engines, space exploration, robots and open source. 

“The on-stage mashup of the founders of Drupal and WordPress was a great illustration of what we set out to accomplish: make the world a better place through extraordinary thinking, smart technology and cross-industry creativity,” said organizer Katie Laird.

During their joint appearance, Buytaert credited Mullenweg for his early decision to start a company and his focus on usability. Mullenweg said he has been a Drupal developer for eight years and envies Drupal’s third party developer community. He also noted for the SchipulCon audience that WordPress has its roots in Houston – the result of seeking refuge from the city’s long, hot summers.

Schipul’s development team works with both Drupal and WordPress, creating highly capable websites for hundreds of nonprofit, businesses and government organizations. Schipul also develops and markets Tendenci® online management software, a powerful Software-as-a-Service tool with more than a half million people logging in during the past year and millions of users overall.

Schipul – The Web Marketing Company Uses New Capabilities in Tendenci® 5 to Give Web Users What They Want

Dynamic, relational content delivers information specific to the user’s interests


Tendenci 5 Provides Flexibility in Designing Sites that Deliver AnswersHOUSTON, March 24, 2011
 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and Web design company, is hoping the launch of its newly upgraded website puts the final nail in the coffin of old school “brochure” websites. Powered by Tendenci 5, the latest release of the powerful online management software (www.tendenci.com), the new Schipul website features leading edge capabilities designed to cater to the interests of the user.

“Static, one dimensional websites served a purpose 15 years ago, but the needs and expectations of Web users are vastly different today,” said President and CEO Ed Schipul. “Every person who lands at a website is seeking answers and they’ll click away in a heartbeat if they don’t immediately find specifically what they are looking for.”

Schipul has updated Tendenci 5 to work on the Django open source framework, providing greater flexibility with custom Django application integration and greater integration with social media and video sites. In addition to Schipul’s new website, Tendenci 5 powers websites for Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org), Discovery Green (www.discoverygreen.com), Tendenci and YMCA Houston (www.ymcahouston.org). 

Tendenci 5, which is developed in Houston by Schipul’s programming team, headed by Programming Director and Schipul Partner Jennifer Ulmer, dynamically pulls content – including photos, videos, links to case studies, blog posts and staff bios – from throughout the website that align with the subject matter the Web user is seeking.

“The thinking used to be if you build a website, they will come,” said Schipul. “These leading edge capabilities flip that philosophy around -- so when users come, the website will build a customized page specific to their interests.”

The upgraded Schipul website includes a number of unexpected elements. Large images dominate the home page that play-up the work their clients do. Feeds from the Schipul Blog (www.blog.schipul.com) and the SEM Blog (www.thesemblog.com) are prominently featured. And each time the home page is refreshed, a different Schipul staffer is featured along with a different inspirational quote.

“Our mantra is to deliver fresh, relevant, valuable content to meet the needs of Web users and keep them coming back,” said Schipul. “The technology is interesting, but it is secondary to telling great stories.”

PERSONAL BRANDS OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS OF AT T3PR TECHNOLOGY PR CONFERENCE WITH ED SCHIPUL

HOUSTON, June 8. 2010 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a Web marketing, design and software company, announced that CEO Ed Schipul will present “Personal Brands: The Opportunities and Threats,” at the upcoming T3PR Conference 2010. Presented by the Public Relations Society of America’s Technology Section, Schipul’s presentation will discuss the business case for encouraging employees to develop personal brands.
 
“Social technologies enable employees to create their own brands and many organizations are struggling to adapt,” said Schipul. “What we have discovered is that personal brands can be disruptive to the status quo of many companies, but if encouraged and supported appropriately, they can reflect positively on an organization and contribute to a company’s profitability.”
 
Schipul will encourage T3PR participants, who provide PR support to technology companies around the world, to take responsibility for personal brand management within their organizations. Instead of focusing only on the CEO, companies can benefit from encouraging virtually every employee to develop a personal brand that is distinct, yet supportive of the corporate brand.
 
This year, Schipul has been spreading the personal branding gospel to public relations pros across the country. His article, “Recruit and Retain the Best Talent: Why companies Should Encourage Personal Brands,” was published in The Public Relations Strategist. In recent weeks, he was a keynote speaker at PRSA Georgia’s Annual Conference and led a discussion on personal branding at PRSA’s Travel and Tourism Conference. His plenary session at T3PR 2010 begins at 10:45 a.m.
 
“This is the time to embrace change and adapt, and technology PR pros should lead the way,” said Schipul. “As was the case with social media tools, organizations that resist will miss the opportunity to profit from their employees’ personal brands and will spend the rest of the decade playing catch-up.”

Schipul – The Web Marketing Company Schipul provides social media consulting, search engine marketing, Web design and blog design services. The company develops and markets Tendenci® online management software, which powers hundreds of Web sites for organization around the world.

T3PR 2010 will be held June 11th at Concierge Conference Center in New York City. Registration information is available at www.prsa.org/Conferences/Technology/.
