A big congratulations to the Brighton Festival Fringe who have just launched their newÂ and improved Website and Brochure for this years festival. Dru and his team have been working hard on this years launch and we’re really proud of the outcome!
Aside from a beautiful modern design from our wonderful design team, new functionality to the website include:
- A greatly improved listings search called Fringle – We’d always had a powerful search engine in the site but it wasn’t something users felt comfortable with. So this year we’ve put it front and centre and focussed on usability using a 3 stage search component, simple text box (keyword search), advanced options (calendar, genre and predictive event and venue searching) and even more options for those who like to tinker – all presented in such a way as to let the user determine their needs and level of comfort.
- Pushing data out to even more external sources. We’ve always enabled Brighton Festival Fringe to get the right data out to third parties to help promote the festival – but this year we’ve added iPhone services, bus companies, box office systems and even more sites to the mix.
- We’ve been building on past experience and as the core registration system matures (the back-end) we’ve been able to take on-board a lot of user feedback into making enhancements, improvements and generally streamlining processes where possible. Everything from financial reporting, proofing and brochure preparation, enabling external applications and box office integration, through to the web site front-end and ticket buying processes are now all powered by the same data systems behind the scenes.
Year on year we are helping Brighton Festival FringeÂ to make real world cost savings and to reach out further to disparate audiences by getting the technology platforms right in the first place.
The Brighton Festival Fringe runs from 1st -23rd May with events happening all over Brighton, so don’t miss out!!
