Due to the success of, and demand for, eScholarship web-based scholarship management software, eInternet has dedicated an entire branch of-the company exclusively to this highly specialized work. We understand the specific needs of scholarship foundations and tuition granting programs, having built eScholarship based on the best practices of the very first Promise program, the Kalamazoo Promise. Through our work with Kalamazoo, and other scholarship programs, we have designed and implemented web-based software that now serves as the architectural framework for complete scholarship administration and automation.
eInternet Design has been in business for over 15 years, and completes all work in-house, employing 26 full time staff members, including top quality programmers, graphic designers, copywriters, and marketing professionals.

Traumasoft is determined to make EMS and healthcare operations more efficient,more cost-effective, more customer and employee friendly, and higher revenue producing. Understanding the role of Traumasoft is relevant because it further speaks to the capacity and skill level of eInternet and our commitment to providing the most efficient web-based solutions to high capacity organizations.
Brian Balow- CEO
Brian brings over 25 years of leadership experience to his role as CEO of eInternet Design. eInternet Design was born out of Brian’s desire to build web-based software for his own business. Unhappy with the “one size fits all” software solutions available, Brian formed a team of developers who could build highly specialized software specific to his actual organizational needs. As a result of the web-based solutions created, Brian’s business realized a significant decrease in the time consuming, tedious tasks once required of key personnel. Freeing up time,resources, and ultimately improving cash flow back into his business, Brian decided to form a web development company that could offer these same solutions to other businesses and organizations. For over 15 years now, eInternet has been successfully designing, creating, and implementing web-based solutions for businesses.
