New England Forestry Consultants, Inc. (NEFCo) manages over 400,000 acres across New England and eastern New York. Their website was becoming outdated and needed an overhaul. PCS Web Design will be delivering an updated and streamlined architecture that will allow NEFCo.'s website to grow with the company. The new design will retain some of their existing site's branding while improving the ease-of-use and access for their customers. Watch for our announcement when their new website goes live!
The Problem: The Wright Museum had outgrown its previous website's capabilities. Since the Museum's website had grown over many years on a static, HTML-only infrastructure, the addition of new content and ongoing maintenance was becoming too time-consuming and difficult.
The Solution: Jim Fontaine, the owner of PCS Web Design, met with Mark Foynes, the Executive Director of the Wright Museum, to discuss the immediate needs and long term requirements that the Museum's new website would need to meet. After assessing the Museum's needs, PCS Web Design created an entirely new website based on a CMS-enabled architecture and migrated the Museum's extensive collection of existing content as well as added entirely new content. New capabilities include: an excellent calendar/scheduling module to keep the Museum's membership and the public informed of the many lectures, special exhibits, and events that the Museum holds; the ability for the 501(c)-3 to accept donations online; and, an integrated gallery to share many of the Museum's photographs of its extensive collection of WWII artifacts and memorabilia - some of which are the only ones of their kind.
The end result: The Wright Museum's new website allows them to add valuable new content regularly and manage all of their content quickly and efficiently, thereby reaching a wider audience interested in supporting the Museum's important work.
PCS Web Design's owner, Jim Fontaine, had this to say, "When the Wright Museum approached me to discuss their needs, I was immediately excited by the prospect of being able to play such an important role in helping to meet the goals of the Wright Museum and its mission. Having had a grandfather who received a Purple Heart during the Invasion of Normandy (D-Day operations), and taking into consideration the current conflicts America is currently involved in, the importance of reminding all Americans of the sacrifices made by so many during WWII is as relevant today, if not more so, than ever before."
(NOTE: The Wright Museum now has the resources and talent that has allowed them to move their website in-house. PCS Web Design maintains a professional relationship with this wonderful organization and is very proud to have provided their website, hosting, and technology advisory services from 2010-2015.)
This client, facing the challenges of selling their property in a down economy, had PCS Web Design develop a custom 'Property for Sale' website that focuses exclusively on their real estate offering. Rather than rely on just being one listing among thousands in the MLS system, this client is pro-actively marketing their property through various, non-traditional avenues and needed a website to direct their own advertising efforts to. Web statistics show that one of their advertising mediums is already getting them traffic that could ultimately result in a sale. If you have a unique property or high-end home for sale, you may want to consider the benefits of having PCS Web Design create a website that showcases your property or home exclusively, too.
ASAP Courier Express is an up-and-coming same day delivery company that is new to the Rochester, NH area but not new to the business. They provide professional, affordable, and reliable same day delivery services to all of New England. PCS Web Design was challenged to deliver a site with 'bling' on a very limited budget. The results pleased both the business owner as well as ourselves. Having limited content doesn't necessarily have to result in having a bland, no-identity website. In fact, sometimes less can be more.
PCS Web Design has delivered two websites in one for the Logs of Fun Arcade and the Daytona Fun Park. Both of the family-oriented fun parks are within walking distance of each other and Weirs Beach. Several design iterations were completed prior to launching the integrated website that is accessible from both the logs-of-fun.com and daytonafunpark.com domains.
