Concierge Preferred is a publishing and marketing company with strong roots in the Chicago and St Louis visitor and hospitality industries. They selected us to create for them a new and fresh website that would integrate proper content layouts into their site. In addition, they also wanted to integrate OpenX server, through which they could easily manage and maximize their advertising revenue. The main goal of the client was to offer "Expert Insight.

The client wanted us to redevelop their website giving a totally fresh look and feel, with added features. It required us to create a search option by which users could find different sponsors for different services. This was a challenging task for us considering the extensive data pertaining to their clients who offered a variety of services.
They also wanted us to integrate OpenX server with their website to strengthen their advertisement strategy. We had to develop a feature that would provide a simple and straightforward way to place ads on the website using Joomla's unique functionality.
The client requested a category called EVENTS which would bring data in from various third party websites like: www.explorechicago.org and www.seechicagodance.com.
Each and every page of the website had to feature a different color scheme and gallery that would evoke an unforgettable image in the minds of their visitors. In all, we needed to revamp the old website thoroughly to create a fresh and attractive portal, full of rich and engaging content.
Analyzing the client's requirements, we chose Joomla framework to revamp the website and delivered an efficient directory search process where visitors could find different sponsors for various categories.
We integrated OpenX server with Joomla which now enables sponsors to easily publish their advertisements on the client's platform. With the integration of OpenX server, the client is able to create outstanding reports, manage all aspects of OpenX server from a single web console, and add the desired number of plug-ins to OpenX server.
Moreover, we have created a functionality whereby the EVENTS option shows the results produced, bringing in data from third party websites. The solutions we provided have enhanced the brand image of Conciergepreferred by integrating all the information in a visually appealing manner. We have also included WordPress blog which helps the organization in the promotion of their services.
