The Naples International Film Festival needed a website that would highlight the magnitude, excitement and caliber of their annual event. The new website needed custom permissions that would allow several different members and administrators the ability to manage and update specific areas of content. The Naples International Film Festival (NIFF) Board of Directors wanted to be able to show slideshows of the event on any given page, as well as have the ability for in-house staff to create and manage multiple photo galleries.
Visitors needed the ability to easily submit a new membership request, renew an existing membership, and sign-up to volunteer. The website needed to be able to accept online donations, and sell tickets for different film events. NIFF staff also needed the capability to stay in contact with everyone based on their level of involvement and their specific areas of interest.
The Naples International Film Festival website was built using the ISOOSI Content Management System (CMS). The ISOOSI Content Management System is a custom coded "pure" ASP.NET web application, relying heavily on the core concepts of Object Orienting coding, setting the foundation for a truly modular solution.
This core system also was designed with SEO visibility in mind, allowing for in-house staff to quickly create web content with high visibility. The core CMS system was also amended to allow the administrator to easily upload images for a slide show that plays at the top of each page.
The ISOOSI team also created an extensive user management system which allows for highly customized controls and permissions for each unique type of user. This streamlined code is extremely efficient while also being flexible enough to handle all user types, and any user types that may be needed in the future.
Since NIFF needed to be able to accept online payments for certain memberships and donations, we adhered to strict PCI compliance guidelines and created a payment gateway that was secure not only for the immediate transaction, but left no trace of payment information. This eliminated any risk of compromise in the future.
We also created a set of controls for sponsor level management, a library of Vimeo and YouTube videos, and a website message management module that allows management of messages that automatically get sent out when someone becomes a member, when they need to renew their membership, even when they volunteer or make a donation.
Another tool that NIFF requested was the ISOOSI eBlast System. With this system NIFF can create custom emails to their members, renewing members and volunteers. NIFF can also create emails that are branded like the NIFF website, enter completely customizable content and save each message for later use. The system also tracks the date and time each user opens the message.
The Naples International Film Festival has grown each year. Now in it's fourth year, the website continues to function flawlessly and has grown right alongside the event itself. The ISOOSI CMS system allows NIFF staff to update pages, create new pages, and update photos and photo galleries with ease.
