Tops at SPAR
Tops at SPAR
Implemented by Clyral
South Africa
Kentico Partner

SPAR group is an international retail chain and franchise with approximately 12,500 stores in 35 countries worldwide.
The project brief was to encourage existing TOPS at SPAR social media users to seek out and engage with valuable, fun content that is centred around party planning and entertaining guests at home. This includes the drinks calculator, party themes, drinking games and cocktail recipes as well as downloadable and printable invites to use for your party. Leveraging off standard repeaters and page templates really put the power directly in the hands of the design team and was also a really great way to use fun and catchy phrases around various sections of the site to create a running commentary that set the fun, friendly tone and atmosphere that the brand is known for. One component of the site that did require some custom development to be performed was the specials and store locator. This had to be integrated into the existing SPAR store data via their extranet where complex business rules needed to be considered.

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce
Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce
Implemented by Distinction
United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

The Hereford and Worcester Chamber of Commerce (HWCC) won the prestigious ‘Chamber of the Year’ Award in 2013 and wanted a web presence that better reflected this status. The new site includes features to allow users to maintain their membership details, book places on Chamber events via a bespoke calendar tool and pay online for services. A crucial requirement for the Chamber was that this functionality needed to be integrated with their existing back-office system (Microsoft Dynamics) in order to streamline the management of the website and ensure both systems were continually up-to-date. The Chamber was also witnessing an increasing number of visitors from mobile devices, so the site needed to be mobile-friendly. We therefore employed responsive design in order to ensure the site worked perfectly on smartphones and tablets as well as desktop and laptop computers.

Implemented by Planeteria Media
USA

The Boston Housing Authority (BHA) is a public agency of the city of Boston, Massachusetts that provides subsidized public housing to low- and moderate-income families and individuals.
BHA project involved creating a web based pre-qualification application for the Boston Housing Authority to remedy the trend applicants have toward applying for all housing programs, regardless of appropriateness. During the website discovery and usability audit, Planeteria Media found that having to disqualify applicants from these obvious miss-matches creates countless loss in staff hours and tax dollars. This new system that was proposed, designed, and developed by Planeteria will save money and time for both the applicants and Boston Housing Authority staff.
