BRANCH ORGANIZATION FOR DUTCH CEMETRIES
Web platform for this Dutch organisation which features an advanced custom CMS and CRM, a custom newsletter application and much more.
This project is a prima example of a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) we have built in Django. Our client can optimalise their contacts and customise propositions. This very mature organisation has entrusted us with this important task.
Among the many features we have built for them:
- Customer Registration System
- Administration and billing system, including exporting invoices a PDF
- Customer profiles, editable by the customer
- Search Engine
- Custom CMS
- Newsletter Engine
We implemented the following techniques for this project:
Django is an advanced web application framework, written in Python. Django incorporates a great number of features, enabling developers to develop websites and web applications very quickly and efficiently. We save our clients time and money by getting up to speed quickly using Django.
A Content Management System (or CMS) is the part of a website that enables content managers to edit their sites' content. On of the many marvellous features of Django is that a basic CMS is part of every project. We can then easliy and quickly customise the basic CMS for our clients' needs.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a technique to enable the styling of web pages in an efficient manner. The main advantage is that changes in style do not necessitate a change in the actual page. For our clients this means that we can implement design changes quickly and cleanly.
MySQL is a very popular open source database, most often associated with LAMP. But we go one better with MySQL and Django. Django has exhaustive support for MySQL, as for a number of other database backends.
ReportLab is a Python Library for generating PDF's. We have used it extensively in our projects. We can produce a pixel-perfect PDF from any data.
Git is our preferred way of managing software projects. It enables us to work on our clients' projects as a team, which is of course essential for larger projects or when speed is an absolute requirement.
Python is our programming language of choice. What makes Python hugely different from languages like Java, C++, and .NET, is that it is much more flexible and concise, allowing programmers to get much more work done on our clients' projects. On top of that, we use the Django Framework, which delivers our clients even more development speed.
