Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston Revamps Website for Better Accessibility


Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater HoustonHOUSTON, February 12, 2016
 –Tendenci -The Open Source AMS (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic new website for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston. The website, https://www.remindsupport.org, sponsors free and confidential support groups in the Greater Houston area for individuals suffering from depression and bipolar disorder and the family and friends that support them.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution for associations and non-profits to give nonprofits and cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

From the DBSA Houston website:

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston provides free and confidential support groups for individuals living with, or family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders. Our support groups are also offered to family members, caregivers and friends who are trying to understand these two difficult mental disorders as they try to assist loved ones.

One of the main areas of focus for DBSA Houston is to remove the stigma associated with depression and bipolar disorder and encourage those who are suffering to come forward, without embarrassment or shame, and find the support they need to live a fulfilling life.

DBSA Houston started offering support to individuals in 1979, a grassroots effort by their founder Gary L. Levering who recognized a need to offer help to those suffering from "mood disorders". The Houston group officially joined the national DBSA organization in 1989.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform allows DBSA Houston to easily add new support groups as they evolve and provide up-to-the-minute notification of group changes for their participants. With quick and easy inhouse management of site content, DBSA Houston is able to promote upcoming events, highlight recent news, revise page content and post announcements using a simple, non-technical inteface.

We are proud to work with an organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of many Houstonians and their families and friends.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for non-profit organizations around the world, including the Spaulding for Children adoption agency (www.spauldingforchildren.org), the Children's Assessment Center of Houston (www.cachouston.org) and the Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org).

Tendenci to Consolidate Executive Resources in Bay Area

Expanded West Coast Presence to Accelerate Community Building, Enhance Access to Potential Investors

tendencilogo.jpgHOUSTON and SAN FRANCISCO, July 9, 2014 – Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci® Open Source Software Platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), today announced plans to significantly expand its presence in the San Francisco Bay Area. The company’s Founder and CEO, Ed Schipul, will relocate to guide the company’s West Coast initiative, which aims to foster the development of an open source community in support of Tendenci and enhance access to potential investors.

Tendenci was established in Houston more than 16 years ago. Two years ago, the company released the Tendenci software platform as an open source solution to give cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence. A small number of Gulf Coast jobs have been eliminated as a result of the relocation and realignment of executive resources; however, the company plans to maintain a presence, with a portion of its software development team, website design and administrative capabilities remaining in Houston.

“We love Houston, but it is clear that expanding our presence in the Bay Area will speed up the pace of cultivating a community of open source developers to enhance and improve the Tendenci platform for nonprofits,” said Schipul. “We first established a Silicon Valley office in 2011 and we are very excited to ramp up our resources in the Bay Area.”

Tendenci also expects an increased presence in the Bay Area will improve its access to potential investors. The company currently is exploring commercial real estate in San Francisco and the surrounding area.

The Tendenci software platform‘s unique capabilities were purpose-built for cause-related organizations. As an open source solution, the software gives NPOs greater freedom and control over the customization and growth of their online presence. Tendenci makes it easy for associations and NPOs to promote and build support for their mission, generate revenue, and manage and promote events.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Depelchin™ Children's Center (www.depelchin.org).

Tendenci CEO to Present Solutions for Web Accessibility at 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival

Ed Schipul will provide actionable tools and design strategies

Tendenci at SXSW InteractiveHOUSTON, February 24, 2014 – Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci® Open Source Content Management System (CMS) project for associations and other nonprofits, today announced that CEO Ed Schipul will co-present the session, "Turning a Blind Eye to Good Usability," at the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival. Joining Schipul will be blind motivational speaker Rachel Magario who is an Assistive Technology Specialist at PACER Center's Simon Technology Center. The workshop will provide disability accessible solutions for website design.

Access to the Internet is a necessary resource to nearly every aspect of life: education, employment, government, commerce, healthcare and recreation. For people with disabilities to have equal opportunities, it is essential they have equal usability to the Internet and to websites. Schipul and Magario will present what online accessibility really means for both the visually impaired end user and to the web designer. The session will cover best practices, implementing accessible web design, testing and design pitfalls to avoid.

"The Internet can be a level playing field for all people – regardless of physical ability – which has empowered countless men and women with disabilities to participate in society in ways they never could before: as entrepreneurs, employees, advocates and activists," said Schipul. "It is inexcusable that many websites and apps continue to be developed with unnecessary and harmful obstacles to accessibility. Our goal is to show how easy accessibility can be to achieve."

For those who are blind, screen-reading software can open the door to the Web's vast information resources. A screen reader converts a Web site to text and then reads it out loud to the person using it. Unfortunately, many Web designers and developers fall into a trap of thinking that adding alt text to images is enough to make websites "accessible."

A typical approach to Web accessibility is to "repair" a website design that is already published, which often results in the site remaining functionally unusable by many people with disabilities. User-centered design practices avoid this problem by focusing on the functional requirements that improve access to all users. They are inspired by the needs of people with disabilities but are designed to give all users more options and control when accessing Web resources.

Turning a Blind Eye to Good Usability is by reservation only and is scheduled for 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM Tuesday, March 11th in Classroom 105 of the AT&T Conference Center, 1900 University Avenue in Austin, Texas. Attendees will need a valid SXSW badge, and an activated SXSocial account.

The 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival runs March 7th through March 11th. It is an incubator of cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity.

Schipul – The Web Marketing Company Becomes Tendenci

Rebranding Aligns Company Name with Focus on Tendenci® Open Source CMS Platform

tendenci_logo.jpegHOUSTON, November 18, 2013 – To better align its corporate identity with the company’s current and future focus, Schipul – The Web Marketing Company has changed its name to Tendenci - The Open Source AMS. The change illustrates the company’s commitment to the Tendenci® Open Source content management system (CMS) for nonprofits. The company will continue to provide Web marketing services to current and future customers through its Schipul Web Marketing business unit.

“After building the Schipul brand since 1997 to be among the leaders in Web marketing in Houston, this is not a change we took lightly,” said Ed Schipul, CEO of Tendenci - The Open Source AMS. “We have a window of opportunity to make Tendenci Open Source CMS the world’s leading OPEN - Source software platform for nonprofit organizations (NPOs), associations and other cause-related organizations – and nothing can illustrate our laser focus on the open Tendenci community like changing our name to Tendenci.”

Cause-related organizations make up a significant market. The National Center for Charitable Statistics reports that more than 1.4 million NPOs are registered in the U.S., including nearly 1 million charities, nearly 100,000 private foundations and more than 360,000 other types of NPOs, including chambers of commerce, fraternal organizations and civic leagues. These organizations deserve an open source website management platform purpose-built for their unique technology needs.

“We have experienced growing interest and excitement around the Tendenci project, and we foresee tremendous opportunity for us to enable NPOs, associations and other cause-related organizations to connect and organize the world’s people and do good, which has been our vision since day one,” said Schipul. “We are redoubling our efforts to make it easy for the open source community to participate in the development of the Tendenci CMS platform for the benefit of thousands if not millions of cause-related organizations.”

Last year, following a decade of in-house development, Schipul released Tendenci CMS as an open source solution to give cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence. Tendenci Open Source CMS platform offers functionality purpose-built to serve the unique needs of these organizations, such as donation and fundraising management, online events management and registration, membership management, rich media management, integrated search engine optimization, and more.

Tendenci Open Source CMS has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for NPOs, associations and other cause-related organizations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Depelchin™ Children’s Center (www.depelchin.org).
