Visionary presents at Melbourne Joomla! Day Conference

By Craig Allan

Visionary Group gave two eCommunity presentations at a conference run by a Melbourne based User Group for Joomla! – a Content Management System website platform used both in-house and for all our client website projects.

Joomla! CMS is one of the most widely used open source platforms in the world, with over a million commercial websites built to date; the current version boasts dynamic mobile design features to enhance end user experience for tablets and smartphones.

Craig demonstrated how Visionary client, Association for Manufacturing Excellence, has transformed their website to provide automated membership management and eCommerce functionality with other user friendly systems such as event registration, secure documentation repository and also newsletter and social media integration. In business terms the site has assisted the client in reducing operating costs while delivering a great user experience to all stakeholders.

Craig also presented on behalf of Joomlapolis, a Swiss-based Joomla! component developer who makes Community Builder, the eCommunity functionality used on Visionary’s client site; Joomlapolis quickly became an event sponsor soon after initial discussions with Visionary about the event!

The Ballarat ICT community was well represented with two other local organisations participating in the Melbourne Joomla! Day.
