    The New Zealand Transport Agency

    The New Zealand Transport Agency was formed from two large government departments. DevCore was used to bring together the content from the different websites into a single entity.
    This was a very large and complex build.

    Marselme

    Marselme is a boutique e-commerce site that sells high quality merino wool clothes for babies and children. This was an interesting site to build. The design parameters changed half way through the process and there were issues with designers... it would have been enough to drive a developer insane.

    Cherrytree - The club for smart shoppers - members site

    Cherrytree is a shopping club that buys goods at wholesale prices and then passes those goods to its members.

    This was a massive project in the end, with prices and avalaiblity updated automatically and integration with their back-end accounting systems giving them an end-to-end system.

    BGI Developments

    BGI Developments is a start-up that is going places really fast. They needed a website yesterday.

    That's where DevCore really came into its own. The hosting arrangement was non-standard. Effectively we had to run a newer version of DevCore inside an older version in order to deploy their new site without affecting an existing site.
    This saved time and money on setting up a completely new site.

    Domett Trailers

    Domett Trailers manufactures truck trailers. They need a new site to cope with the increasing demand for their products, and to showcase all the different types of trailers they can build.

    The trailer galleries were all built from scratch, as was the trailer database where clients can log in to get all the information about their trailers - right down to the component parts used!

    RightCar

    The RightCar website is one of the sites under the NZTA mantle. It is useful for checking out the safety and fuel efficiency of cars and other interesting facts like emmissions etc.

    This was a slightly different build for DevCore. most of the dynamic content is served up via web services, instead of being pulled from a database.

    Cherrytree - The club for smart shoppers - public site

    Following on from the success of the members only website, the people at Cherrytree wanted to update their public website. So using the existing DevCore codebase we simply added a few new folders, a few new classes, and the site was good to go.

    It is tailored to mobile users who are looking for a new car.

    They can enter the licence plate of a vehicle and see all the relevant safety information for that particular model of car.

Cherrytree - The Club for smart shoppers members site


Go to the Cherrytree website - note: these screenshots are from the members section which requires a login.

This was a massive project in the end.

Devcore was responsible for building the database, the logic to run the site and the front end HTML. The site is a large shopping mall with many thousands of products covering a wide range of product, brands and suppliers.


The site is geared towards supporting members wanting to check how much cheaper it is to buy from Cherrytree than retail outlets, and let them buy their products and get them delivered at the cheapest possible rate.

A big part of the complexity of the site build is that the pricing, stock order control is all automated. The prices and stock items come direct from the suppliers, and any purchases made automatically flow into their accounting package. This means the ongoing work required to maintain the site is minimised. This is very important with a site of this size.

The flexible and extensible nature of the DevCore system, meant that we could rapidly develop the site and new features as they were requested; something the client really appreciated.

Since the site hold personal details of its members, all member data is securely encrypted and all web requests happen over HTTPS. This means the members can have confidence that their details will be properly managed.

With such a large build there was a lot learned. Many new features will be added to DevCore and existing ones enhanced as a result.

So if you are looking for a system that supports building large complex sites as well as small tightly focused site, check out the new version of DevCore.

If you are looking for a bargain, check out Cherrytree and become a smart shopper.
