We build clear, easy-to-use software for businesses and institutions.

We’re a user-centered web development firm that helps clients overcome bottlenecks, streamline workflow, and collaborate to get work done. 

Database redesigns

Organizations grow and change: but internal systems can get out of sync with new goals. Database redesigns optimize workflows for new needs.  

Customer and vendor portals

Portals enable users to manage documents, tasks, and payments securely. They help teams to collaborate, communicate, focus, and get work done.

Meaningful engagement

Online payments, event registrations, recommendations, and learning management systems help customers engage past just looking at your brand.

Complex content management systems

Blog-based websites collapse once they grow past basic brochures. A custom CMS takes you to the next level, with rules-based publishing, multiple kinds of content, and easy image management.

We needed a user-friendly members-only portal that simplifies our day-to-day management. Now, our members can login, RSVP to gatherings, register for official events, pay dues online, get a history of their membership and registrations, and access marketing tools and members-only information. Our members use the website significantly more now. Neoteric created the online resource we have been striving to build for years.

Citywide engagement.

The Neoteric CMS powers the Terra Foundation for American Art’s Art Design Chicago website. A year-long initiative starting 2018, the site handles organizations, programs, and—coming this fall—hundreds of events across Chicago, including exhibitions, public programming, lectures, and more. A partner content portal and publishing workflow keeps it all in order.

Foster connections.

EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, hosts leading international exhibitors, non-profit institutions, museums, and art collectors each fall in Chicago. The Neoteric CMS powers the website. It delivers programming information, events, content archives, and exclusive exhibitor and VIP portals. Behind the scenes, an easy-to-use CRM helps staff serve customers, gallerists, artists and buyers alike.

University Arts.

We rebuilt the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University website on the Neoteric CMS. CCVA is housed in the only building in North America designed by Swiss-born architect Le Corbusier. It hosts the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies, exhibition spaces, and the Harvard Film Archive. 

In partnership with our friends at Practise, the website relaunch sets the stage ongoing growth. It features extensive content archives, mobile optimization, exhibition and event management, and easy-to-manage layouts with fresh typography and immersive artwork.    

“...Neoteric did absolutely anything necessary to meet our high-profile, unmovable launch date... The entire team cheerfully, professionally, and beautifully met our needs with vision, patience, humor, and a true, deep interest in the story we were trying to tell.”

Exhibition interactives. 

How can we teach financial literacy topics—like  saving, spending and avoiding fraud—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun? Neoteric worked with a team of exhibit designers, illustrators, and content experts to create the digital interactives for Thinking Money: a Financial Expedition

Thinking Money was developed by the American Library Association Public Programs Office in collaboration with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, whose support made this exhibition possible.

Easy planning.

Millennium Park is Chicago's "front lawn." It offers hundreds of free cultural programs including concerts, exhibitions, tours, and family activities.

The Neoteric CMS drives Millennium Park's publishing platform. Complex calendars are fed to custom designed Apple and Android apps, where Chicagoans and tourists alike peruse series and event calendars, making planning a breeze. Find out how we did it.
