Arthritis Foundation


BlueModus was tasked with migrating and combining two existing web properties for the Arthritis Foundation and creating a third into a single Kentico Xperience instance while helping the client organize and make accessible a vast knowledge contained in 5,000+ web documents. The main site was migrated from Crownpeak, the community forum was upgraded from Portal Engine to MVC, and a brand new volunteer community was launched with great enthusiasm. The Arthritis Team wanted to build a web experience that provided those affected by arthritis and their caregivers with the tools, guidance, information, and community that will make their lives better, while also increasing engagement with volunteers and donors.


  • BlueModus started with a very detailed information architecture process to determine how best to take the two existing web properties, add volunteer community, and create a single cohesive web property that met the needs of the full Arthritis organization.
  • The flexibility of Kentico Xperience as a rapid development platform enabled BlueModus to respond to new opportunities revealed during the development process and to pivot as new information was gathered from Arthritis’ stakeholders and beta users.
  • A proprietary event management system was integrated using scheduled tasks to regularly transfer data into Kentico’s CMS.
  • BlueModus utilized the open API and advanced workflow of Kentico Xperience to easily allow the migration of structured data from the existing web properties to the new web property.
  • Kimbia/GiveGab forms were integrated to collect donations.
  • Utilizing the digital marketing and email features of Kentico Xperience allowed Arthritis’ content authors to be trained and work within one system for content authoring of web pages and emails.
"From complex web rebuilds and routine refreshes to site maintenance, functionality, and security, BlueModus has always enthusiastically come to the rescue.

They are also invested in the growth of our technical knowledge, providing trainings where they see opportunities to become internally independent.
