When I did my original demo to the customers, they were extremely pleased and very impressed as to the ease of use regarding the management of their sites.

Project Scope:

  • Build a National Employee Resource Network website with a content management system.
  • Build a State Employer Network template website with content management system. This template will be designed in a way that it can be used by any and all states in the United States. Each state will have its own color scheme and logo. All other elements will be consistent.
  • The national site will need oversight of all State websites as well as the ability to generate reports from each site’s database as well as overall reporting from all sites collectively.
  • Specific information from the national site needs to be dynamically part of each state site.

Solution:

Build the national site and state site template using ASP.Net, Visual Studio, Foundation by Zurb, and SQL Server Databases. This allows for data driven, mobile friendly web applications.

Challenge:

Since these sites are extremely unique in their requirements, typical CMS products would not be an option. I needed a way to provide exactly what was required. Visual Studio allows total control over how the sites are built (public facing), but Visual Studio is not a CMS platform. This is where ASPRunner.Net shines.

The sites were built as web applications (totally database-driven). Each section of the site has a purpose and gets its content from the back-end database. ASPRunner.Net was used to build out the interface to the databases in a secure, role based manner. Not only can each site have its own custom CMS, the national site can have access to all sites’ data in the way of reporting. ASPRunner.Net was the perfect solution. Without it, I would be forced to either hand code a custom CMS or use a product that is less secure and would not be flexible enough to meet all the customer’s unique requirements.

When I did my original demo to the customers, they were extremely pleased and very impressed as to the ease of use regarding the management of their sites.

Now that we are up and running with the national site and two state sites, I can roll out a brand new state site with the CMS in no time at all.

Going forward, I will be introducing the Xlinesoft Mass Mailer plugin to the national site’s CMS. This project, so far, is an overwhelming success.
