AEC Software, Inc., is the leading developer of business
productivity software for Windows, Macintosh, and Palm.
AEC Software products aid users in planning, tracking,
and managing their projects easily and efficiently while
enhancing communication and achieving business goals.
As a technology company, AEC Software understands the
importance of staying on the cutting-edge of technological
development. For the last six years, AEC has worked with
II@W to maintain this edge in their corporate website.
AEC wanted to continue to evolve their extensive website
with a fresh look, better content management, forms for
gathering customer information, and an expanded online
store and catalogue.
The II@W solution
II@W began by migrating the website back-end from Macintosh
servers to Windows 2000 using an SQL Database. Other databases
were created or modified to improve the reliability of
the site. For instance, online registration was synched
to work seamlessly with AEC Software's existing Sales
This was followed by a complete redesign of the website
layout and navigation. Everything from the colors used
to the tone of the content was examined and improved.
The AEC Software online store, where customers can order
the software or download the product directly, was enhanced
and the catalogue of products was expanded.
On the administrative side, a back-end was created to
improve content management.
Multimedia enhancements include search fields based on
Flash forms and animated menu systems on the AEC Software
product pages. Also, II@W is currently producing a marketing
video for AEC that will incorporate a host of multimedia
services like audio and video editing and Flash design.
We also provide logistical assistance and support in their
e-mail marketing campaigns. The Internet Ideas @Work solution
served to improve:
II@W hosts the AEC Software site and manages the site's
servers. II@W provides routine maintenance, pro-active
problem solving, and frequent backups to ensure the performance
of the AEC Software site.
