    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.

    Rightcar Mobile Plate Search

    This subsite is an addition to the successful RightCar site.

    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.

Go to RightCar and check out the site.

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.

Once again the DevCore system showed its flexibility. All it took as a new class that consumes the web services and passes the values to the standard template manager. The rest was just business as usual.

This was also different in that it was built as a tem effort. The templates were cut in Belgium, the web services were developed at Webstruxure, and the integration was down to Devcore.

It all worked quite well.

Deployment was a total breeze as well. We developed the site on a test server, then copied everything to the live site. This was running in tandem with the existing site. That meant we could test it in-situ and ensure everything was working before go-live.

When the time came to go live, all that was required was to change the index file and the new site was live.

Had there been a problem, all we would need to do to roll back to the previous site, was replace the index file with the original one.

In the event, all went well and the site has been running fine since launch.

This was a good example of taking the basic DevCore code and stripping out the bits you don't need, replacing it with bits you do need and making your life as a developer much easier.
