Case Study: Ergodex, Inc.
Project Type: Web Design & E-commerce
Founded in 2000, Ergodex provides customers with improved ways of interacting with computers and other equipment. With Ergodex technology, customers experience improved performance at their fingertips.
Design the site’s look and feel, deploy PHP-based template system, and integrate several dynamic PHP based applications to assist Ergodex staff in content management and data manipulation. There was also a need to introduce two types of product ordering/inquiry management systems.
Ergodex is launching one of the most innovative products to hit the computer industry in a while. One of the most important requirements for this project was to offer their users several ways to interact with the site. Ultimately they wanted to create an attractive online community for all of the retail customers as well as potential customers to communicate between each other, share templates, and much more.

- Dynamic content system
- Dynamic forum
- X-Cart Shopping Cart
PharSide recommended PHP and MySQL database to handle the high amounts of anticipated traffic to the site. When we started development, we broke the site up into 5 phases/milestones – 4 of them related to the database design and development as well as the administration sections of the site. The final product consisted on 6 dynamic sections – all of which were independently editable via standard web browsers through the customized administration panel. No HTML knowledge needed as Ergodex staff members can edit content on the fly.
