As a “not for profit” organisation they rely on donations which they were receiving. They have many events that they organise and attend, which they had to ensure people were made aware of from within their website. Information on the site had to be kept up to date, from anywhere in the World.
Access to the back end of the website was required from different locations in a secure manner.
The Foundation was also growing, across the United States they had a presence through different forms – medical institutions, health centres and Universities. To list of all of these on a webpage would be difficult to navigate and not aesthetically pleasing.
The last part of the brief was for the website to be able to be viewed and read by people using a desktop device or also tablet or mobile, they were receiving more and more visits whilst at events and the user experience to the site was not at the level they would have expected themselves.
Wirebox implemented a secure responsive WordPress site which allowed multiple users access to update and manage the site.
The design was made responsive, this allowed the design t automatically re-size to whatever type or size of the screen the user was using to view the site on. Due to the volume of pages, this was not ideal for smaller screen users, to overcome this obstacle a mobile site was also created. Anyone viewing the site on a phone was automatically directed to the mobile app.
A page for on line donations was created and linked into their payment system using Blackbaud.
To overcome the volume of resources that was available across the different states in the US, an interactive map was created which allowed users to create on a State and then have only the relevant resources displayed to them.
