Confex -

Development and hosting of an online course application and registration system based on eZ Publish.

As Scandinavia's leading provider of open courses and conferences to professional organisations, Confex use the internet actively in their sales and marketing – so the requirements for their new online solution were specific and well thought through.

The requirements included:
- Integration of Confex's own administration systems for courses and subjects as well as their CRM database
- A comprehensive and dynamic course registration process with management of the different discount rules, such as “Early Bird” deals, every Xth booking free, etc.
- Course search with filters and immediate search results (AJAX)
- A shared platform for use across Confex Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Germany with varying requirements for design, language and functionality

Netmaking was able to precisely follow Confex's guidelines and to actively take part in developing the details of the portal's functionalities.

“Compared to previous suppliers, both for web and other services, Netmaking has exceeded our expectations. They have been proactive partners throughout the process and have asked important questions from the moment we sent them the brief. Our queries and comments were always followed up and answered quickly.”
- Ricky Sookermany, E-Marketing Manager
Teknologisk Institutt

Teknologisk Institutt -

Design, development and hosting of a web solution based on eZ Publish.

Scandinavia's Technological Institute (TI – Teknologisk Institutt) has over 200 employees across 3 different countries, offering technological competency and product development for both public and private sectors.

Until now TI has communicated primarily using paper. We were therefore given a relatively free hand in developing a new web design for them. The client wanted the web design to reflect their focus on technology and knowledge, as well as conveying reliability and quality.

In close collaboration with TI's project and design manager, we worked towards a solution that integrated the company's colours and logo into a new design. TI had given specifications for the site and wireframes for which type of pages should be created, making the process more streamlined.

Having worked on projects which, like this one, required the end product to function in several countries, we made sure that this was achievable right from the start. eZ Publish allows extensive flexibility in the set up of publishing solutions, giving the TI website a shared platform servicing users in Norway, Sweden and Denmark with content in their own language, while also sharing resources across the separate domains.

In addition to meeting TI's requirements for organising and presenting their products and information, we developed a search function which allows the user to filter search results based on school, article and course. Sign-up to the schools offer is available through a flexible extension of eZ Publish called eZ Survey.

“We are extremely pleased with the completion of the project. Netmaking has delivered an outstanding service, offered speedy response to queries and has shown flexibility and professionalism throughout the development process.”
- Jon David Junge, Market Advisor
Kom Inn AS

Kom Inn AS -

Design, development and hosting of the Kom Inn website based on eZ Publish.

Kom Inn is a Norwegian company that offers brand design and development for offices and buildings.
As Kom Inn works in a field that is unfamiliar to many, the main objective of its website was to clarify exactly what the company has to offer. This was achieved using short and concise descriptions, while maintaining a strong focus on the projects that Kom Inn has completed to date.

Inspiration is at the centre of the services that Kom Inn provides. To convey this, the website used techniques from magazine publishing, such as an active use of typography and large images of projects. In addition to this, the website is home to a blog with tags such as “retro”, “signage” and “shabby-chic”.

"Kom Inn is extremely satisfied with Netmaking. They got on board with our business ethos and showed us the opportunities available when developing our website. Their customer service throughout the process has been very agreeable and the project was delivered to the set deadlines. The training that we were given in the use of eZ Publish was extremely good – the system is lucid and logical – and allows us to regularly update our content.”
- Kari Engh Johansen, Manager
Troms Reiseliv / Travel and Tourism

Troms Reiseliv / Travel and Tourism -

Development and hosting of a travel and tourism portal with Tellus integration, based on eZ Publish.

Troms Reiseliv is responsible for coordinating efforts to expand the travel and tourism industry in Troms County, Norway.
When they first approached us, Troms Reiseliv had a pre-developed design which by means of small adjustments could be modified to reflect the seasons of the year. They also had their own travel companies.

The project's largest challenge was integrating the new system into Tellus, which is a bespoke database for travel and tourism companies, offering information about the different tourist attractions in the county.

The platform for the website is set up to be able to re-use the functionality and design in multiple travel and tourism portals, with two new portals already under construction.

“We are delighted with the work Netmaking has done for Troms Reiseliv. Netmaking offers a fast response time and high levels of customer service. The job was done with the utmost precision.”
- Yngve Larsen, Project Manager
Elby (El & Belysning)

Elby (El & Belysning) -

Design, development and hosting of a web commerce site integrated into Visma and based on eZ Publish.

Elby is an online retailer of lighting and electronic products at what they call “irritatingly low prices”.

In addition to the standard e-commerce functionality, has been built to include a real-time Visma integration, which transfers an updated version of the product catalogue from Visma to the online shop on a daily basis.

The online shop has also been developed with a streamlined one-stop-checkout, making the user experience as quick and easy as possible, for both new and existing clients.

Our new friend at Elby, who claims to “write like he talks”, had (among other things) the following to say about us:
“Eeee... from the moment we got in touch... with Netmaking... to the point where we today have a complete web-shop... there's actually nothing negative to say... well, there's always small things in every project... but they are so quickly forgotten because of the high level of service. What's great about Netmaking is that they think about things... of course they complete the task you give them... but never without having pondered the task first... and this little analysis of the consequences is a good thing to have...

I have used superlatives throughout this project... and words like “genius”... have been used a lot... eZ as a web-shop is the kind of thing you learn how to administrate in a week... and after that point, everything has gone like a dream... if I had anything to say to eZ as a whole, it's to take a look at Visma, because there's a lot to learn... but... I think that to date there is no other publishing solution with better admin than eZ... in Norway... and I have tried many before deciding to use eZ. In conclusion... Netmaking has done a 100% professional job... and you can see the result at”
The Online Backup Company

The Online Backup Company -

Design, development and hosting of a website based on eZ Publish.

The Online Backup Company (OBC) is Norway’s largest provider of online backup solutions to private companies and public bodies.

In 2008, Netmaking developed OBC's new affiliate web system and when the time came for them to redevelop their website, they returned to Netmaking for our services.

OBC is an exciting company in rapid growth – they needed a new website that could convey the company's vision and product specifications in a more accessible way.

In addition to a tailor-made design based on the company's profile, the website incorporates a booking solution that calculates prices based on the customer’s chosen configuration in real-time.

The website is also linked into OBC's chat support, as well as the log-in user interface for the company's clients.
NIA Sports Interactive

NIA Sports Interactive -

Design, development and hosting of an online social networking community based on eZ Publish.

NIA Sports Interactive is behind the online community site, a website devoted to making it easy to find sporting events and activities in Norway.

The background of the site is the desire to encourage Norwegians to get active by making it easy to get hold of information about sports teams and organisations.

The website has been built to allow the individual organisations to publish text, images and activities on their own page, which can be searched for by site visitors. Advertising on the website is managed through an integration with OpenX, a complete open-sourced advertising system.

“Precision and predictability were two of the most important elements in the completion of this project. Netmaking has really taken ownership of process, and has completed the redevelopment of our pages in an extremely professional way. In no way do I have any complaint about the process.”
- Kristian Haugaasen, Manager
Hageglede – online magazine and shop

Hageglede – online magazine and shop -

Design, development and hosting of an online shop based on eZ Publish.

Hageglede (literally translated as “Garden Joy”) is Norway's largest online shop for plants, bulbs and seeds.

The starting point for the project was Hageglede's pre-existing online shop which, having been developed in 2001, had become outdated both in terms of design and as a practical technical solution. The design did not take advantage of today's larger screen sizes, and the buying process was unorthodox when compared to the current standard format. On the technical side, the site had not been developed with search engines in mind, so it was not achieving high rankings.

Part of our brief was to introduce elements that would drive more traffic to the site, such as articles, gardening tips and a searchable encyclopaedia of plants.

The design process focused on shaping a web design that appeared both professional and appealing, while not detracting from the large amount of content on each page.

The e-commerce solution was integrated with Mamut allowing Hageglede to maintain only one web catalogue, which is automatically updated in the online shop. In addition to card payment options and standard e-commerce functionality, we created bespoke formulas for the calculation of delivery charge and date.

The plant encyclopaedia, which was launched in stages across the spring, will eventually contain details of 6,000 plants, with details of planting, growing conditions, maintenance instructions and much more.

“Netmaking had complete control throughout the project, and if anything at all was missing this was corrected in no time at all.
Netmaking was very active in collaborating with us when it came to good ideas and problem solving. They have a thorough understanding of the solution they work with, and know how to best use it when creating websites.”
- Monica Saga
Paradox Film Production

Paradox Film Production -

Development and hosting of guest-list functionality as an expansion of eZ Publish.

Paradox is a Norwegian film production company with a number of well-known commercials and feature films to their name.

In the context of the premiere showings and after-parties that Paradox arranges upon release of their feature films, Paradox wanted a flexible solution for inviting guests and tracking their responses to an event with one or more “happenings”.

Based on the client's wishes, Netmaking developed a guest list function that works as an extension to eZ Publish. The solution was first released in 2007 and has since then been further developed to be a comprehensive and flexible system for managing guest lists for events.

The solution was recently used to invite and manage responses for two of Paradoxes big autumn releases – deUsynlige and Fatso.
The Online Backup Company's Extranet

The Online Backup Company's Extranet -

Design and development of an extranet system for The Online Backup Company's (OBC) affiliate network.

OBC offers encrypted and remotely stored backup copying of data for small and medium sized businesses.

The starting point for this project was OBC's desire to develop an extranet system for their network of affiliate resellers. The extranet would need to be a tool that could be used throughout the customer process, from marketing to creating offers and reporting of sales, through to following up with existing clients and keeping an overview of commission structures.

Netmaking was given the opportunity to be part of the process from its inception and actively contributed to the creation of a detailed requirement specification, which formed the basis for the further development of the project.

The final product is a bespoke extranet for OBC, which aids the work-flow of their affiliate network. Examples of the extranet's functionalities are:
- Automatic generation of quotes and contract documents
- Integration into OBC's backup servers in order to collect information on disk-space use etc.
- Calculation of commission
- Management of up-selling procedures

“The results of the brief were even better than expected. The process was tidy throughout, from specification to the completed solution. Completion was fast, comprehensive and, last but not least, delivered before the set deadline. The training, follow-up and problem solving has all been extremely satisfactory.”
- Alexander Hagerup, Chief Executive Officer
Park og Golfmaskiner

Park og Golfmaskiner -

Design, development and hosting of web shop for Park og Golfmaskiner (PGM). The web shop is integrated with the Norwegian ERP system Mamut, seamlessly transferring product and order data between the two systems.

PGM delivers products for maintenance and care of golf courses and soccer arenas.

Specific for this project was the two-piece target demographic. The web shop was therefore divided into two sections to keep from "disturbing" the green keepers with products for soccer arenas.

In addition to standard eZ Publish e-commerce functionality, the web shop is also set up with:

* Leasing prices
* Credit card acceptance
* Discount coupons
* Shipping handling based on weight and recipient zip code
