Gradian Health

Gradian Health Systems Home

Gradian Health Systems equips hospitals around the world to deliver anaesthesia safely and economically.

Gradian approached Social Ink to takeover their current site support and development. While maintaining their clean design, we “gut renovated” the core site, rebuilding the site code to fix multiple bugs and broken dependencies.

The new site re-enables staff to easily update and edit site content, while an ongoing retainer agreement ensures that we provide priority support and additional features upon request.

As part of our work providing high quality websites for business, we love working with the team at Gradian, and helping them provide cutting edge technologies to doctors and hospitals around the world.

J.M. Kaplan Fund

JM Kaplan Fund Homepage

The J.M. Kaplan Fund promotes initiatives to foster city life, the environment, historic preservation, and migrations in the New York area and beyond. The J.M. Kaplan Fund was established in 1945 by businessman and philanthropist Jacob Merrill Kaplan.

Continuing our work designing and building websites for Foundations and philanthropic organizations, Social Ink worked directly with the J.M. Kaplan Fund to reinvigorate their web presence, transitioning their old, static HTML site to a dynamic, easy-to-update CMS. Thinking through foundation-specific issues regarding access, grant areas, and transparency, the rebuilt site allows the foundation to take pre-emptive steps to filter potential grant seekers while providing news and updates regarding their work and progress. Project details include grant and document archiving, custom slideshows, and custom overview sections and application forms.

Our ongoing relationship provides updates, backups, and as-needed maintenance and updates, while in-house staff have freedom over content entry and development.
