We began working with the Association of Personal Care Home Operators of Saskatchewan late last year when they came to us asking if we could help them out with their annual conference. They were looking for a simple-to-use website that could promote the conference and be easily updated by non-technical volunteers on their end. They also let us know that their current Joomla website was needlessly complex, difficult to use, slow and wanted our input on a solution.
We began by setting them up with a simple WordPress website for their conference and donated it to them so they could see the differences between our lightning-fast cloud-based hosting and the WordPress platform and what they already had. We knew they would we wowed by the ease-of-use and reliability of this combination. They got their conference website together in a snap (check it out they will be updating this Fall and hosting another conference for caregivers in Saskatchewan in 2018) and had an excellent show with good attendance.
It wasn’t long afterwards that they came back and asked us to kickoff a redesign project of their main website. We focused on simplicity and ease of use – shedding much of the extra animations and images that led users in circles. We used WordPress again with a number of customizations and set it up on our amazing hosting with free LetsEncrypt SSL as well!
The result has been met with positive feedback from Association members and even more importantly an administrative area that easy to use for the volunteers and largely automated so that posting details or association fees don’t get left stagnant or falling behind.
Another successful project where we were happy to provide technical solutions that met real-world needs – creating a win-win solution for our partner client and their users!
