When JMA Web Technologies arrived, content was in HTML, PDF, and word format. User forums and profiles were stored in a separate system, which was separate from the website. This information needed to be content managed with all user information under one system, using ASP.NET. Software documentation needed updating, for newer versions of the software, and JMA Web Technologies provided technical writing services for the project.
Payments Gateway chose Sitefinity because the user interface is intuitive. Business users can easily maintain content. The blogs module allowed the customizations, which include thumbnails and ratings, and pasting from MS Word. With no limit on design, the website has stunning imagery and animations, ranging from the home page’s slide show to the login drop down, located on top of each page. We were able to integrate several jQuery animation plugins throughout the website, by creating controls and inserting files references on templates, ensuring that changes were quickly made on a global level.
The staff included one back end developer, one web designer who did the templates and graphics and two content contributors. The project was completed in 4 months, but the web designer and software developer are involved in maintenance and upgrades throughout the year. Because Sitefinity allowed us to use templates, content was better organized and the website has a uniform appearance. If we made a change in one area, it would change all instances throughout the website. One example is the drop down login menu.
