IDP recently completed a WordPress Web Development project for Preferred Connect Insurance Center. You can visit the new website design project at http://www.preferredconnect.net/. Preferred Connect Insurance Center is a California Workers’ Comp company. The web design project included responsive web design, WordPress development, custom PHP programming, graphic design, direct mail microsite development, online quote functionality, content and web page development, database development and custom admin lead data interface. This was a pretty complicated project that took 3 months to complete.
A big chunk of this project involved supporting a direct mail marketing campaign. Our job was to build the microsite for the web portion of the direct mail campaign. Custom PHP programming was developed to create a discount code login page. A database was developed and populated with direct mail data. Data is pre-populated based on unique PIN, users can register for a promotion and leads are saved to a database. An admin interface was custom programmed so that the client can login and download leads and manage leads. Data entry web pages were also developed,
One of the most challenging pieces of this web design project was a Workers’ Comp online quote system. Custom PHP programming was developed to calculate premium based on many factors completed by the user while filling out the quote form. The quote submit form is a multi page form with additional form fields that appear based on user input. Many calculations take place in order to provide an online quote. The client provided the math logic required and IDP programmed that logic. Here is a screenshot of the first page of the quote form:
WordPress Project with Custom PHP Programming
The project was a WordPress responsive design project. Normally we would install modules to handle some of the functionality required. In this case, it was better to develop custom PHP programming to meet the needs of the client. The unique requirements of the direct mail microsite and online quote form were better handled with custom web development. We were able to integrate the custom programming into WordPress. The website software can still be fully updated with WordPress updates even though we added custom programming.
