Here are some recent highlights of Modern Signal's work in creating custom website and mobile solutions for our clients. Featured here are work samples in website strategy, consulting, design (including responsive design), content management systems, and custom database and web application development (primarily in ASP.NET and ColdFusion).

December 2013

The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) launches its new Canadian Directory of Legal Employers. The website provides job seekers with details about Canadian law organizations and their hiring practices. Modern Signal redesigned the front-end display and programmed the back-end admin tools to streamline employers' data entry, reduce support time required of NALP staff, and increase completion rates. Most notably, the site offers multi-language support, allowing employers and job seekers to toggle quickly between French and English, and NALP to manage extensive site content in both languages with ease. 


October 2013

Modern Signal launches new membership and committee app for CropLife America. Now available in Google Play and iTunes store. Built using the latest versions of jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap, the app integrates in real-time with CLA's Drupal website for marketing content and Microsoft CRM for directory data.

Users can set sale alerts for their items and are notified when their clothing items match the sale alert criteria. Community features on the site allow users to browse and re-rack items, comment on and love items, and share items through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. Privacy settings allow users to keep their entire closet or certain categories within their closet hidden.

  • Modern Signal has a professional staff that was very responsive to our needs during all phases - scoping, developing, implementing and maintaining - of our project.  We have been pleased with their ability to deliver quality work on time and on budget. If given the opportunity, I would work with them again.

    - The National Center for Safe Routes to School

  • Modern Signal has been a great partner for us for over the past 10 years.  As our business grew and our needs changed, Modern Signal was able to work with us to adjust our website platform in the ever-changing online world.  Their service and response level has been second to none, and we've been never been happier with our relationship with them.

    - Charm City Run

  • This was by far the smoothest website redevelopment I have ever experienced. Modern Signal was a wonderful company to work with and we greatly value our working relationship. 

    - National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators

  • Modern Signal significantly enhanced our site to be more efficient and user-friendly. They provide excellent customer service with timely and cost-effective solutions.

    - Center for Medicare Education

  • Modern Signal understands our business - from future needs to current limitations - so their solutions are always scalable, solid, and service-oriented.

    - National Association of Home Builders

  • I love working with Modern Signal! Their CMS is very easy to use and they are incredibly responsive to questions or challenges I bring them.

    - NALP

  • We wouldn’t have gotten where we are today without your support over the years.  Modern Signal has always been a great partner to us.

    - Kirk Gillis, Managing Director at Zoom Tanzania

  • Modern Signal worked with us to understand our needs and figure out what solution would work best for us. Our Lighthouse CMS is perfectly suited to our website goals. When we later needed to modify the CMS, they again took the time to understand exactly what was  needed and then built that functionality rather than delivering a cookie cutter solution.   

    - Ecosystem Investment Partners

  • I felt as if my company was their only client. They responded to my needs quickly and efficiently despite short turn around time and intense demands.
