The front-end design was a very enjoyable project for our design team. Coupled with great quality input from the client, and a free hand to express ideas, the end result was a site that far exceeds the visual qualities that Mamboats had in mind. There has been much praise for the site by visitors to the Mamboats facebook page, and everyone involved with the project is extremely pleased with the end result.
With careful project management, the site was designed, built, and launched in the required timescale. We also released a mirrored 'test bed' version of the site, to allow reps and staff to practice using the booking system before taking live bookings.
It's early days, but the easy to use system has been very well received, and everyone is keen to make some real bookings - especially the boat crews, who appear to have full calendars!
Within the first weekend of going live during the 'off' season, the site received over 600 hits in a single day. With ongoing promotion from the parent company's facebook page and twitter, we expect to see some very heavy traffic as the summer approaches, and some impressive sales statistics to boot - this is just the beginning of what will be a very exciting partnership, so keep a look out for further developments.
