The Entertainment Network, TEN, is a website that lists and connects Venues and Performers and provides information to the public of when events are happening. Its first iteration is set to service 3 cities; Saint John, Fredericton and Moncton. Responsive site design, including systems for payments, events and directory postings were created and implemented utilizing WordPress as its platform.
The Entertainment Network, is a place where artists and businesses come together to provide you with great local entertainment choices. You can view listings on their calendar covering multiple cities across Canada. Making it easier to know what is happening in any location.. They service Saint John, Moncton, Fredericton and surrounding areas.
We were approached by TEN who had an idea for what they wanted, but didnt know where to start and didnt want to spend a fortune to get their startup off the ground. This is where we flourish. Given the challenge we sat down with TEN to discuss what they needed and came up with a list of must haves:
The need to keep cost and time developing to a minimum meant we had to dig deep into our collective WordPress knowledge base and come up with some ways to implement the asks without too much invested in development. After some intense brainstorming sessions, our head developer George found a way to implement a mix of pre-existing plug-ins that would integrate with the CMS while at the same time align with what TEN needed to succeed.
With the event calendar and directory functioning seamlessly, we went ahead and built out the site layout and structre with TENs approval every step of the way ensuring that no time was wasted and that they were involved with the decision making process. We find that this blend of client involvevment AWESOME as they are super happy with the outcome and we get to create another beautiful website for the web 😀
With the projects closing we also held a walkthrough session with the TEN staff to make sure they were familiar every aspect of administering their site moving forward. We recorded this session as well for future reference. As well we coupled custom built training materials that shows the back end systems in-and-outs for even more ease of use.
All this may seem above and beyond to others but here at TheDSS it is ESSENTIAL we leave our clients feeling confident and happy with their new site and product. We realize its intimidating putting yourself and dream out for all to see so we do our best to ease their minds and let them feeling excited about the future of their site.
