United States Institute of Peace

The United States Institute for Peace (USIP) wanted to create a community hub for their peace-builders, something that BracketMedia had undertaken before for the Peace and Collaboration Development Network (PCDN). We soon realised that this project was much larger and more complicated. We couldn’t wait to get started.

What The Client Does

USIP works to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict around the world, by engaging directly in conflict zones and by providing analysis, education, and resources to those working for peace.

Their website offers online courses, as well as registration for special workshops and in-person training.

 

Work involved

Our initial work involved maintenance of the original website, including the adaptation of non-BracketMedia architecture. Custom plug-ins were created to replace ones installed that were restricting the USIP workflow. We streamlined the process for creating and maintaining profile pages, and enabled new features for site administrators to manage complex information.

Bracket also helped to automate USIP’s process for integrating WordPress users with a Salesforce CRM, and optimised their servers in anticipation of significant traffic increases over the coming months.
