We have recently joined the Southern Alexandrina Business Association, a group that supports our local area in business activities and promotion. With this we thought we would offer our services to update the existing website for the association. The main feature of the 'SABA' website is a detailed directory of the the associations member, presenting business in categories.
Unlike the previous site which which required manual editing, the new site we have presented to the association is 'data-driven', meaning that information about categories and businesses is keyed into fields and displayed automatically. This means that the organisation does not have to worry about manually formatting business details across various pages - an edit made to a business will update in its listing in all categories. Built in is also the automatic resizing of logos/images for each business and linking to Google Maps. Each of these small features add up to a significant reduction in the time overheads to maintain the site.
The new site also includes a useful search facility and an easily updated slideshow on the homepage. Down the track this slideshow will be used to feature images of local businesses.
We feel that we have been successful in presenting the excellent infomation that was on the existing site in a more user-friendly way and hope to be able to continue to contribute our skills to the assocation in the future.
