The Association of Professional Landscape Designers came to us with a custom built Cold Fusion™ website that simply had not kept up with the times. The old site was starting to show signs of age and repairing it was beginning to get costly. They wanted a fresh new look that was clean and inviting plus mobile and tablet friendly. They also needed a new system to manage the association’s membership plans, events and directories.
To accomplish the tall order in front of us we used WordPress, Bootstrap and CiviCRM. WordPress combined with a Bootstrap based customized theme delivered the clean look they were looking for within a framework that was both mobile and tablet friendly. The design is bold and chunky with a sea of white space to keep everything clean and inviting. The large buttons and icons help make navigating this website a breeze on a smartphone. Finally, CiviCRM was used to manage the business side of the website. CiviCRM seamlessly integrated into the WordPress site and is used to manage all of the association functions. Our team wrote custom functions to enhance the off-the-shelf features included with CiviCRM, one example being a custom membership renewal process.
Currently the new website is able to perform the following functions inside WordPress:
• Association Membership Management
• Member Certification
• Member CEU Tracking
• Event Management
• Email Marketing
• Member Portfolios
• Member Directories
• News and Newsletter
