Having interacted with the client a couple of times and understood the client's end goals, we learned that the client needs extensive help with the development of the site and the data collection. Hence, we began doing the required homework and industry research. The homework further helped us understand the requirements and specifications of the client even better. To ensure the smooth progress of the project, we also added contingency plans to the project blueprint.
After defining the project's deliverables and timeline, we constituted a team of expert Zoho consultants, HTML5 developers, CSS3 experts, and PHP professionals into our team.
To ensure that we are on the same page throughout the project, we have agreed to communicate with the clients quickly on all matters.
After developing a perfect plan for the project, it was time for the team to get to work.
Our team began working on the project immediately and ensured the client could deliver an excellent website for the users. Hence, we focused on developing a website that could directly address the challenges and pain points of the clients.
As the business is located in Canada and caters to users worldwide, it was developed to be bilingual, with English and French being the two languages the client wanted to go with.
Single Data Destination
We helped the business collect all the information gathered through forms under a single destination for ease of use and management.
The data collected falls under four categories: County, Region, Subregion, and District, to ensure that data is classified for further use.
A hierarchy in the form has been established from County, Region, Subregion, and District to quickly enable the admins to pull up data based on the hierarchy to present on the website.
Data Presentation on Site
We have also leveraged HTML5 and CSS3 to ensure that the data pulled from the Zoho database is presented well for the site users.
As the data has been collected in Zoho, we used the Zoho API to connect the server with the website to ensure a smooth data flow from the Zoho database to the website.
Members could log into the website according to their membership status and category. This helps admin in website management.
Different category pages were added to make it easier for users to access them and for the website admin to manage them better.
After the execution of the project, the client was pleased with how the site turned out. The website's performance was exceptional, and it was one of the biggest focus points of the project. Our Zoho software consultants ensured that the website could perform well on all platforms for users and was easy to manage for the admins. As a result, the website performed better than expected on all assessment parameters set by the client. The client was able to achieve the following results after the site's launch:
Sessions in First Week of Launch
Average Weekly Growth in Form Submission
Reduced Backend Management Time
Increased Form Submissions
