It’s been a very busy couple months for Intertec with 5 new websites going live.
Based in the US, Circle Software is an affiliate of Fundi Software specialising in education, software and consultancy offering a comprehensive range of customised courseware for Mainframe Technologies. Circle Software approached Intertec to advise a way forward to achieve the following key website objectives:
- Regain control of their website using an improved content management solution
- Modernise the look and feel of the website to improve ‘street appeal’
- Improve administration and customer management (e.g. mailing lists, “share” buttons etc)
Intertec prepared a comprehensive proposal which covered our recommendation and methodology including the breakdown of the project into phases based on the priorities of the business. The project comprised both a public facing website to advertise Circle Software’s education software and services as well as the development of a custom web application to advertise, manage and book training courses.
Intertec designed and built the public facing website using WordPress CMS. The training courses web application and database were developed using Microsoft web technologies including.NET, IIS and SQLServer.
Intertec delivered a website that met all the Client’s requirements giving them back control of their website along with the ability to be able to expand the site in future as more course providers come onboard. By building an integration bridge between WordPress CMS and MS.NET we provided our Client with seamless database integration and sharing of resources.
- Custom training course database with administration and course booking functionality
- Integration of the training course database with the WordPress CMS website
- News/Blog functionality
- Mailchimp integration
- Responsive design
iTimeClock is Intertec’s own home-grown cloud-based solution that modernises traditional employee punch in/out time clocks. The iTimeClock website uses large scrolling banners with eye-catching graphics that portray our leading edge web application. The site graphics and content combine to give a sense of high-tech simplicity which is a strong message we wanted to share with our audience.
A unique new logo that has a clock worked into the design was created along with a colour scheme that was used for branding our website built using WordPress CMS. The site features:
- Large eye catching imagery
- Free trial section
- Support form
- News & Blog section which allows guest posts from other bloggers.
- User forums area
- User chat functionality
Concluding the project Intertec provided Joel with WordPress training on how to maintain his new website and the website went live in September 2013.
Intertec created the website for Trainwest using WordPress CMS – giving the company a fresh design while maintaining their corporate branding with orange accents throughout. The client was so enthused by the new site and the ease with which to maintain content that they used the opportunity to give the website content a complete overhaul, something we usually recommended when revamping an entire website. The result is a site that not only looks the part but offers simple user navigation across a site structure that more accurately represents the operations of the business “Today”.
Some key features of the new site include:
- Dynamic course calendar
- Enrolment & course administration integration
- Online payment (coming soon)
- News section
Once the site went live we carried across the newly created imagery to the Trainwest Facebook page. As part of our development methodology we conducted client training on how to use WordPress so Trainwest have the skills necessary to maintain content on the site. Since going live the new website has achieved excellent gains in organic search engine rankings and our Client’s business is now suitably represented on the Net.
A logo was created by taking style cues from Mr. Penguino’s top hat. The website was developed using a WordPress CMS with a prominent homepage banner that features the Great Penguino himself.
