HOUSTON, December 20, 2011 – Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing, social media consulting and Web design company, today announced the launch of a new upgraded website for the North American Brain Injury Society (NABIS). The website, www.nabis.org, is powered by Tendenci 5 (www.tendenci.com) membership management software. Schipul designed the new NABIS website.
Through its website, NABIS provides the community of multidisciplinary professionals dedicated to brain injury with education programs, publications, scientific updates and a platform for communication and professional exchange. 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.”
Tendenci’s membership management tools give NABIS and other associations the ability to customize membership types, membership applications, reminders and renewal notices. Association administrators can control the content members can access and update, and what price they pay for events, directories, and job board postings. Tendenci also includes all the tools needed to accept online payments, create professional-looking invoices, organize online financial transactions and generate accurate reports.

HOUSTON, 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.

HOUSTON, 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.”
