"We love our new website." -Mary H. Director of Marketing
Working with AIS, we were able to capitalize on four opportunities. Each opportunity outlined below was not fully functional or was nonexistent on their old website. After our initial meeting, it was clear that we could develop several custom applications to help online visitors navigate their site more efficiently and find essential information relevant to the visitors needs.
- Job Posting Directory
- Low-Sight and Blindness Friendly
- Product Catalog
- Video Integration
Custom Job Directory
AIS recruits teachers with specialized training to work in the public school system. Using WordPress and a custom database application we were able to create a directory of open positions at AIS. Each open position has a “Send Resume” button that automatically fills in an online contact form with the open position details and requests all the pertinent information an individual needs to submit to AIS. This feature streamlined AIS’s new candidate processing making it easier for Human Resources to file and reach back out to prospective applicants.

Screen Reader Ready
AIS provides products and services for individuals who have limited sight or blindness. AIS’s new website is properly coded for Screen Readers. All website are technically supposed to be Screen Reader friendly, but many websites do not follow the standards set up for screen readers. AIS’s website fully supports screen readers. We even added a special button that shows up on the top of the screen when you press the TAB button. This feature allows individuals who have sight impediments to skip right to the main content of the website.
The website we developed for AIS has a custom catalog that is sortable by technology type and use. AIS is easily able to update or add to their catalog through their WordPress admin panel. This feature has helped AIS to increase their product sales while increasing visitor satisfaction on the website.
AIS’s website has been formatted to feature online videos throughout the site. Videos engage online visitors while adding to the overall professional image of AIS. Each video opens in a popout screen that places the video front and center for distraction-free viewing.
"We enjoyed working with AIS, they were open to new workflow ideas, and we love the design they choose." -Benjamin
AIS is thoroughly enjoying their new website. The website’s sleek minimalistic design gives them the professional image they deserve. Their visitors know that AIS is a trusted brand and when prospective specialists are looking for work they can tell by the website alone that AIS is an industry leader in their specialized field. The custom designed applications are streamlining their workflow and saving them both time and money. Their site has been optimized for SEO and is loading blazing fast on our dedicated cloud hosting which helps gain even more exposure online. We enjoyed working with AIS, they were open to new workflow ideas, and we love the design they choose. But best of all we know that the work we did really helped improve their online image and made it easier for them to grow and conduct their business. At the end of the day that is why we do what we do.
