We overhauled the setup to improve the performance of the website. In our case that meant simple HTML / Ajax landing pages instead of sluggish WordPress sites for what was a single lead capture form.
Third party add-ons can slow down a site by as much as 25%. That’s a problem we solved. We built a custom plugin to interface with the YotPo recommendation and review system. It interacted directly with the YotPro API to create content native to the DiamondKote site. In doing this, we made the data originate from the DiamondKote site and not a third party service source. That allowed us to contain the data locally in caches and improve overall performance.
We migrated the meeting and agenda information from a legacy system built with Drupal 7. We created an integration that exported all of the data from Drupal using Views and the Export-CSV function. The data was imported into WordPress using the WP All-in-One Import plugin to turn the Drupal content into WordPress content.
In its first iteration, we built a faceted search for Chop Value. It was tied into Google Maps and showed all of the locations. In its second iteration, we helped to migrate the site from WordPress over to the Shopify platform.
In a bid to make our roadways safer, Carmanah Traffic builds signals and beacons powered by the Sun. These solutions are easy to deploy and maintain.
In 2018, we worked with Carmanah to plan out the new design. We created integrations between Wordpress elements like WooCommerce, Gravity Forms and Gravity PDF. We migrated the content away from a Drupal 7 install and into a WordPress site that stood alone to present their product line with concision.
Carmanah Industries creates solar lighting solutions. Their line of street lights have been found in parking lots, roadways and pedestrian walkways in North America and beyond. In 2017, we embarked on a redesign of their Solar Lighting vertical. The move away from Drupal to WordPress gave us new opportunities. Shawn DeWolfe Consulting helped with the planning, the data migration and several key elements of the design.
We created a build-price form. The solar estimator calls for Google Maps. It takes coordinates and passes them to the estimator application from Carmanah. It then returns a data sheet with pricing, specs and sunlight estimates. The information is available for users as a downloadable PDF.
