fuzzylime won a tender to revamp the branding and website of the Scottish Women in Business networking organisation, based in Glasgow.
We worked closely with the team at SWIB to develop new, fresh branding for the networking club, choosing a modern and stylish font and a bright and inviting colour palette that could be used both throughout the website and in a number of offline locations.
We also integrated the site with a members' database held through a remote system, ensuring that details of new members and amendments made by existing ones were passed automatically through the system.
The site also includes a full member directory – which members can update directly for the first time – and an events system that allows members to book places for forthcoming events as well as adding their details to a calendar or viewing more details about it. They can also browse past events and view galleries and information.
How it works
The basics of the site are powered by our fuzzylime (cms+) software but we made a few additions for the project.
These include the members' database system in the CMS, which is fully integrated with the remote database; the events management system; and the ability for administrators to generate and manage voucher codes for members' use.
What they said
"Working with fuzzylime has been a pleasure. From their initial response to our brief, through to delivery and a number of post-launch tweaks and additions, they have demonstrated an excellent technical understanding of our needs for a contemporary and practical website solution. They have taken a methodical approach and kept us well informed throughout the process, contributing practical advice and good ideas throughout ? especially on the integration of the website CMS with our existing database and operational processes."Their project management has been excellent, keeping things moving even when some decisions might have taken longer than usual on our part, due to the need to consult with the committee at key stages. We have particularly appreciated their responsiveness and their ability to give us the impression that even the occasional "daft question" isn't so daft. We are reassured that we have been delivered a website which suits our needs and which has been built to be as future-proof as is reasonably possible."
