Global Analyzer Systems provides cutting edge technology to energy producers and as such they knew they needed all of their marketing materials including the gasl.ca website to reflect this. The original site was built several years ago and was beginning to look dated. Further, the site itself was built in straight html which meant that it could only be updated by a few people within the company.
After gathering requirements, and discussing the volume of data they wished to present on the website it was apparent that a Content Management System (CMS) would be required to keep everything organized.
The open-source JOOMLA! CMS was chosen for its incredible flexibility and capability to scale to include additional features in the future.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is inherent to Content Management Systems and with a few minor tweaks optimizing each page becomes extremely easy for the end user. This takes allows GASL to make changes to their site based on exactly which search topics they feel their potential clients will be using to find the appropriate information.
The rotating header image works using AJAX technology which mitigates any problems with Java and/or Adobe Flash version conflicts while still providing smooth transitions between images.
On the initial home page, a series of tabs were configured to include the most important overview data for each section of the site and links in to the body of the site were provided for ease of navigation.
A large portion of the Dromedary contribution was in writing technical site content. Because the company itself is incredibly busy as a whole, the amount of time GASL had to word-smith the content for the site was extremely limited. Content was created to match existing writing style and tone, and the professional demeanour that embodies GASL.
Now that the site is complete, any of the crew at GASL are able to easily edit and update content through a WYSIWYG editor built in to the CMS! This means no expensive bills for a web developer to make minor changes and ensures that appropriate information is delivered in a timely manner to GASL's valued clients.
