Goway needed a web development company that could:
After spending a month or two getting to know each other Goway decided we were the best fit for the job and work commenced.
One of the most important elements of our work with Goway has been using Agile web development. Though Bright Interactive delivers all our web development projects using Agile techniques, this was new to Goway. We explained that this approach delivers regular stages of web development which are fit for purpose and delivered on time and on budget. It also allows us to spot any hurdles in the process early and thus save time and money on wasted resource.
One of the key goals of the project was to employ a Content Management System (CMS) that avoided the need to re-enter product descriptions and other data that already existed in Goway's TravelBox booking system. Many CMSes are not flexible enough to allow external data to be blended with CMS data in this way, so we developed a custom CMS for Goway based on FeinCMS that allows TravelBox data and website-specific content to be seamlessly blended into a single page.
We have now been working with Goway for two years, the new site is live and the next web development sprint will be our 19th, providing further functionality for the site so it continues to offer a satisfying user experience.
