The website was developed in 2014 and was initially powered by Joomla CMS.
In 2017, there were 140,000 records in the organizations directory, leading to extreme server load. As a result, it took 1 to 3 minutes for the directory to load. It was absolutely impossible to work with the site. After reviewing several available options, we’ve decided to transfer the site to WordPress CMS. We’ve additionally chosen to update the website design.
In fact, we had to redevelop the website from scratch.
We chose to use template design tailored to the client’s needs. All other elements were changed in adherence with modern web design, usability and e-commerce trends.
We carried out a full amount of works in accordance with the tasks.
We installed WordPress CMS and offered five various design options. After the client has chosen an option that would suit him the best, we installed the design template.
We’ve configured all CMS plugins and modules, and transferred the directory with CSV export & WP All Import re-import.
As a result of completed works, the client has received a completely overhauled website (new CMS, design and structure) that was made in full adherence to the search engine rules. The corporate website is ready for new visitors.
