Enjoy Benefits is an online employment benefits provider

There are a variety of systems involved in this website, we had to liaise with more than one other agency in the build of this project.

There was a legacy system of an Umbraco website that was out of date and incapable of meeting the clients needs. This has been replaced with a new Umbraco CMS system to ensure the client can update their own content quickly and easily, however the majority of our work is going on behind the scenes of this site.

GPA Europe

the brief

GPA Europe had an aged system that prevented them from moving their business forward. They need to administer a membership, allow online booking of events, online book sales, manage subscriptions and provide information. We helped take their existing legacy system which was built using text files and a very convoluted file structure. We managed to preserve the previous data into a new database whilst providing a more robust information management system that has allowed them to move their site forward and provide an enhanced service to their members and reduce the workload on the administrative staff.
