Bord na Mona’s AES is one of the leading Irish waste management companies with over 100,000 domestic customers and more than 4,000 commercial customers across Ireland.
The current AES website was dated and had not been updated in a number of years. The main challenge that Bord na Mona were facing was that they could not easily update the site content interfering with the site’s html & css. This led to challenges as the website is accessed thousands of times per week and content needs to remain fresh.
Engine Lab Software responded to the AES website redevelopment tender for Bord na Mona AESIrl and were successful in our bid.
Engine Lab Software partnered with Bord na Mona AESIrl to transform the web presence to meet their business & customer needs.
The ELS team held a series of consultation meetings with Bord na Mona internal teams & carried out a SWOT analysis on their existing website to understand their goals.
This led to a series of design meetings with Bord na Mona where we agreed on the wire-frames and eventual designs for the website.
ELS developed a cutting edge web platform with great UX which allowed Bord na Mona to customise every part of the website using a CMS.
We have successfully supplied development and support on their current AES web platform and successfully went live in 2016.
Bord na Mona wanted a flexible CMS which would allow them to customise every single aspect of the website. We developed the entire platform using WordPress and PHP. We developed a bespoke template and plugins for WordPress which would allow Bord na Mona staff to easily make changes.
The backend AES platform was developed in PHP and interfaced with the AES website.
The AES website speaks for itself in terms us usability and design. The website is used by over 100,000 users who order bins and make payments.
The entire web platform was deemed a huge success as it is so easy to customise.
