The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce was deeply entrenched in their existing Chamber Management Platform. The existing platform offered limited flexibility for layout and design, business directory searches, business details, event searches and event sign-up. In short: They were held hostage by a legacy system that wouldn't allow them to update the website's look and functionality.
The existing system contained all Chamber Member information, sponsored banner ads, and payment gateway. The Chamber needed to keep the administrative portion of their website intact.
We kept the original management system untouched but adjusted the server settings to display our newly designed pages, while hiding the original user interface in an inaccessible area. We then linked our custom user interface with the original system's data, allowing the Chamber to continue using the administrative tool they've grown accustomed to, while still working seamlessly with our attractive new design.
The Chamber also requested some additional functionality for their member directory and calendar of events. We were able to seamlessly amend new directory member data to their existing system without impairing the functionality of the original Administrative system.
This allowed us to integrate with the Google Map API, so that The Chamber could offer printable coupons and display custom information about their member businesses.
Finally, we were able to update the upcoming events module so that users could quickly and easily access an Events Calendar that shows when and where upcoming events are happening.
As a result of our work, the Naples Chamber now has a much more attractive website that users rave about. Advertising sales are up, and the increased visibility has grown the Chamber's number of member businesses significantly.
"Choosing ISOOSI to develop and design our web site proved to be one of the smartest decisions we’ve made," said Naples Chamber Director, Mike Reagan. "Traffic increased more than 10x just three months after the launch of the new site."
