VASA Student Services is an overseas education consultancy based in Bangalore, with a strong online presence in terms of online counselling, virtual education fairs, online GRE training etc. With previous unpleasant experiences with many web development firms; VASA were looking to partner with a professional agency that could deliver work to their expectations and within a given timeline.
Radical Networks was called upon to initially design a HTML5 mobile responsive based static website for their VASA Student Services division. The Website provides an option for students to register for a counseling service after taking an appointment using the calendar on the website. After the registration they are directed to a payment gateway to make a payment using CCAVENUE or PAYPAL depending on the country of residence.
Using Bootstrap framework, our designers were able to deliver a design that easily navigable, mobile device responsive and fast loading, and also delivered the payment gateway integration as well.
During execution of this project, we were asked to re-design the client’s WordPress Blog – blog.GRE4YOU.com. The brief given was that they wanted the blog design to follow the theme common to their brand.
Post the successful completion of these 2 projects, Radical Networks was provided with another opportunity; this time to develop an interactive website for their business division that helps conduct online VIRTUAL EDUCATION FAIRS to facilitate interaction between Global Universities and students for College admissions.
The features of this website were:
- Content management System for making changes to the website by VASA staff.
- Listing of upcoming Education Fairs with date schedules. A date count-down timer for the newest fair is displayed on the home page.
- Banner management provision to upload University banners
- Registration forms for Exhibitors (Colleges/Universities)
- Registration forms with Social Sign-up options for students
- Paypal payment gateway integration for Exhibitors to pay online.
- Mobile device responsive design
- Integration with DNN software CMS platform
Some of the important features of this project were the timelines we had to adhere keeping in mind the design iterations requested by the client. We also had an unusual request to upload an ‘alpha’ version of the project to help them present the project to their investors. Here too we did not disappoint. We uploaded the approved HTML pages and linked them together using the menu navigation. This helped them do their presentation successfully.
End of the day – Radical Networks was successful in delivering the project within the timeline and as per the expectations of the client and Mr. Navin Sathianathan, Managing Director was happy to write us out a testimonial for our work.
