Media 1 Productions, one of the UK's leading organisers of corporate events and conferences, approached Web Foundry looking for a bespoke event management platform.
Their new system would not only offer a seamless event experience but also provide delegates with all the information they need right at their fingertips.
Designing a bespoke event platform
Media 1 had previously identified a number of off-the-shelf event packages which came with a wide range of features they didn't need. To avoid paying a higher price for unnecessary functionality, Web Foundry would design a custom-built platform with core features, making the system cost-efficient and easier to maintain.
understanding user requirements
Web Foundry held an informative Discovery Session with Media 1 to establish their precise needs through a series of ‘user stories’. Armed with this information, we built an interactive prototype so that Media 1 could test the system before taking it to the next stage of development.
Easy updating tools
Once the platform was fit for purpose, we built a Minimum Viable Product using Joomla Content Management System (CMS). Full training on the system was provided enabling Media 1 to manage all their own content. The responsive design means that updates can be made from any device, be it a desktop, tablet or mobile.
User feedback gathered through the tool is used to continually refine the product so that it meets user needs.
An iterative approach has meant that we were able to deliver on the agreed objective of the project, which was to provide delegates with a seamless event experience.
Custom design for an event management platform can require a five figure investment.
Iterative development of core features can take take up to 8 weeks to implement.
