Northpoint Health & Wellness Website case study header

Northpoint Health & Wellness Website

Background

North Point Inc. Is a community-based human services agency located in and serving North Minneapolis with a mission to reduce health disparities, improve health outcomes, and enhance the overall quality of life for all residents of North Minneapolis by providing high quality social services, medical and dental care, as well as behavioral services. NorthPoint also provides many enabling services such as transportation, culturally competent and multilingual staff, translation, assistance in applying for public programs, and a sliding fee scale. 

In 2013, High Monkey began a long-term consulting relationship with Hennepin County. The primary objective of that consulting agreement included the rebuilding of all Hennepin County public facing websites. High Monkey provides expertise in the Sitecore CMS platform to the County and is leveraging Sitecore to provide a centrally managed CMS environment while using common design elements and standardized templates for County websites – all while allowing for unique branding for each County website. High Monkey also implemented the Coveo Search platform – another standard used for all Hennepin County public-facing websites. High Monkey worked closely on this project with another of the County’s consulting providers, Minneapolis-based Azul7. The creative team at Azul7 provided the design theme, graphical elements, HTML, and CSS while High Monkey delivered the Sitecore build, Coveo search implementation, functional and compliance testing, and implementation expertise.
