Having fun,
doing good work,
looking beyond the shelf.

The problem with off-the-shelf software is that it gives the user very little flexibility. You alter your workflow to conform to their tools rather than having the right tool for your job.

Three Rivers Park District faced this issue when they called on us. With a workforce of over a thousand employees, they needed a smart and efficient way to track employee training as well as to deliver training online. The off-the-shelf software they were using failed to meet their needs, and support was nonexistent when problems arose.

Enter The Design Company. We took some time to learn exactly what Three Rivers needed, and came up with Three Rivers University: a full-featured training site where employees, managers, and human resources staff can track, plan, schedule, and learn. Now with custom backend development, a new identity and interface, the site fits their needs perfectly. And as new needs arise, no worries. The system is flexible to allow expansion as they grow.

Think twice before simply grabbing the most convenient pre-packaged solution. Custom web software can save time and money in the long run, and we can make sure your project has some serious support backing it up.

Look beyond the shelf. Look to us.
