Tailored Content Management System (CMS)
Develop a tailored CMS for preparing and holding conferences and other events. This CMS should be a full-featured commercial product.
Axmor developed a tailored CMS which not only allows you to quickly create a conference website, but comprehensively manage the processes related to preparing and holding the event. Conference hosts, participants, and sponsors are the main users of this CMS. To make sure the solution would be in demand in the software market, we created an operational prototype with key functionality.
Users register by creating profiles with personal information. Through their profiles, users can get to know other participants, plan their day at a conference, and get access to various media resources. Participants can also receive email notifications with conference news.
We developed an easy-to-use administration panel to simply manage the processes of preparing and holding a conference: accepting proceedings from speakers, scheduling, polling and voting, monitoring participants’ attendance, and much more.
Exchanging Media Files
The CMS supports a convenient media archive where conference organizers can store programs, leaflets, video files, and pictures. These resources are available for downloading by conference participants.
Conference Registration Fee
The CMS was integrated a popular payment system for users to pay for participation directly through the website.
Our customer successfully tested the prototype with the first clients. Axmor developers then used it to create a fully functional software product.
Extended Functionality of a Full-Featured Product
Customization for Corporate Requirements
A fully-featured CMS is easily configurable to support quick customization in accordance with customers' corporate requirements. For example, conference hosts can easily change the graphics for their own design or select another payment system.
Interaction with Participants
We integrated the CMS with the most popular social network services (Facebook, and Twitter) to simplify the conference registration process. Also, participants can receive text message notifications on conference news.
Polling and Reporting
The CMS supports participant polling for feedback as well as generating statistical reports on speakers' popularity, conference attendance, financial indicators, and much more.
Provided Value for Users
Quality UI Design
We paid particular attention to developing an original graphical design. It is user-friendly and convenient for getting information across on PCs, smartphones, and tablet devices for both website administrators and conference participants.
Convenient Media Archive
We transferred a media archive of the full-featured version to the Amazon S3 cloud service. Now it has become even simpler to share reports and presentations along with any useful data with other conference participants.
We used Google recommendations on search optimization of content management systems when developing our CMS. The developed solution supports creating high-ranking websites.
Provided Value for the Customer
- A functional prototype and a full-featured version can be developed quickly and at a low price due to use of free components with an open source code.
- Taking a subscription fee for using the CMS as a service.
