Case Study: Earth Assets Group
Project Type: Application Development
Through its online clearinghouse, EAG pursues the development, certification, management and exchange of ecological assets valued in environmental markets worldwide.
EAG came to PharSide with a very nice design in hand. All of their static content was laid out perfectly but they wanted to add more. EAG wanted to add the ability to signup and manage free/paying members throughout the site. In addition, EAG wanted to add community generating content and applications such as a forum, news management system and other major components.
EAG needed a dynamic system to not only handle their content but also their products, advertisers, and members. This system must integrate several features to establish the desired functionality of the EAG website.
- PHP Application Dev
- MySQL Database
- PHP/MySQL based shopping cart
- PHP/MySQL based forum
- PHP templated system
- Membership signup (free/paid) & administration
- Dynamic partner section w/ administration
PharSide was successful in enhancing the EAG website by allowing their users the ability to register for a free, paid personal or paid corporate membership on a real-time basis. Secondly, we created a custom referral tracking system to capture all users that the EAG referred to its preferred advertisers. We then installed and customized the EAG forum/community. Finally, we added a fully integrated news application which checks EAG user levels for content displaying based on membership level/package that particular user is subscribed to.
