Archdiocese of Chicago : Multi-tenant Web CMS Platform

Crosby Associates tapped Thirdwave to help when the Archdiocese of Chicago needed more control over their websites. Over time their environment had grown to an unmanageable number of sites under a multitude of platforms. Thirdwave provided initial technical discovery and consulting as well as implementation and training for existing AOC staff. The AOC is now on one platform - the Liferay Portal Platform. This has provided the

Archdiocese with not only good looking sites, but also much greater control than they ever had.

Services Provided Include

Consolidation of web CMS platforms
Consistent themes to strengthen a new and modern brand
Extreme attention to detail across all devices
Content migration team
Training and enablement
High availability hosting
Custom Mapping and Calendar applications

Road to Close : Real Estate Transaction Management Platform Image

Road to Close : Real Estate Transaction Management Platform

A prominent Chicago Real Estate Attorney had a terrific idea to streamline and clarify the real estate closing process from contract through close. There was nothing like it on the market. Thirdwave was hired to build the new application. This included conceptualization, wireframing, design, prototyping and beta build. User experience was our highest priority throughout the application design process. We knew that real estate

professionals demanded a clean interface and of course mobile optimized. Thirdwave also provided tradeshow support including a demo and lead generation system. The application is currently in Beta and continues to gain market support.
