Helping Habitat for Humanity
OpenConcept is doing more work in providing technical support to other web consulting companies. Most recently we were called in by HJC New Media to help launch Habitat for Humanity Australia's new website. We were essentially involed in creating some php scripts for managing and collecting contact information from their contact us page as well as their eNewsletter. We were also involved in communicating the client's needs to the web host and flicking the switch for the final launch.
Like many NGOs, there often aren't inhouse technical people who can help support them in their choices of technolgoy. The automated tools that we set up should allow them to easily import these contacts into their database so that they can be easily contacted in the future.
