WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA – May, 2009 – Franchise Services continues their relationship with Imagistic to launch subsidiary Web sites.
Back in July, 2005, Imagistic began a long-term client relationship with Franchise Services, a leader in the management of award-winning brands supporting the small-to-medium business market. After designing several sites for the company, Imagistic was contacted by Franchise Services in 2008 to assist with one of their subsidiary’s Web sites located at www.sirspeedy.com. This time, the project involved the implementation of PaperThin’s flagship content management system, CommonSpot.
Impressed with the quick-ramp up on CommonSpot and solid end-product, Franchise Services commissioned Imagistic once again to work on two Web sites for another subsidiary company, TeamLogic IT. In addition to providing project management support and implementing development tasks for the front-end sites and its administrative back-end, Imagistic offered the service contributions of HTML integration, information architecture, SEO best practices, content entry, and Q&A/testing.
Project highlights involved the creation of a 100-page functional specification document within a week, as well as the production of an 80+ page National site and 26-page backend administration panel. In addition (and on the same timeline), Imagistic delivered an equally sized sub site tailored to the company’s 45+ Franchise owners, allowing them to quickly and easily manage their individual branch pages. After less than 30 days of development, the sites launched in May, 2009.
In the next six months, Franchise Services will be calling on Imagistic yet again to deploy another CommonSpot installation for their largest network of business printing centers in Europe, MultiCopy.
