PHARMACY 777 IS A LEADER IN THE RETAIL PHARMACY SECTOR
Pharmacy 777 provides innovative and quality pharmaceutical services to customers across Australia. The Pharmacy 777 team entrusted Diviv with the challenge of developing their brand-new campaign website Visibuy. The website is used to promote brands and products, with the aim of providing exclusive deals, special offers and competitive trading terms via their membership program to pharmacies across the nation.
At Diviv we're always up for a challenge and were happy to collaborate with the Pharmacy 777 team to deliver a high-quality WordPress solution that meets all of their requirements.
Every new website build has its share of challenges. At Diviv, we use a project review and feedback loop to continuously learn from previous projects, overtime this helps make us better developers, increases our team’s efficiency and maintain a quality outcome for our customers.
Through our close and collaborative project delivery method we were able to quickly understand Pharmacy 777’s goals. By using learnings from our continuous improvement model, we're able to deliver a high-quality product in an extremely tight timeframe. Risks were identified for known challenges upfront and through regular communication with the Pharmacy 777 team, we were able to resolve inflight quickly to keep us on track and meet the launch deadline.
With just over 30 days to complete this project, time was of the essence. We set up a small autonomous development team with open and regular customer communication and collaboration. This meant we could quickly execute project decisions and deal with issues, keeping us on track.
One of the driving factors of WordPress as a CMS is the user-friendly interface that allows content editors to update content easily. WordPress has a shorter learning curve with minimal training required and is extensively documented should a content editor need to research how to complete a specific task.
As content editors become more knowledgeable and HTML skills increase, WordPress allows for greater control providing content-editors more flexibility to customise page layouts whilst preserving the look and feel of the website.
To maximise time and cost savings we recommend using as many out of the box WordPress components as possible. Where necessary, we provided custom developed blocks to extend on functionality to specifically meet business requirements.
Finding the right CMS fit is can be a difficult challenge for new websites and even more challenging for new clients. We proposed WordPress CMS based on understanding the high-level requirements and because we knew the timeline would be tight. WordPress ticked all the boxes in this case, it would facilitate the ease and speed of content entry along with meeting our development goals.
For Visibuy we designed and implemented custom post types with accompanying blocks. This approach simplified content entry and provided Pharmacy 777 drag and drop components that can be placed anywhere throughout the site, maximising flexibility.
With a short time frame the project needed to run as smooth and efficient as possible. We adopted an agile-like project delivery methodology, using weekly sprints with close customer collaboration to keep us on track and deliver on time.
Defining a Process Adopting a workflow and process that would be carried throughout the short lifespan of the project. In doing this we simplified our development process and introduced some aspects of agile.
By working in a small autonomous project, structuring the team and an agile-like process accommodated fast development and quick decision making. This was key to working within this short time frame. Open regular and transparent communication with the customer means there were no surprises and sped up the feedback loop to prevent any possible miscommunication that could cause rework.
We proposed a comprehensive solution to address all of Pharmacy 777’s challenges and requirements using the WordPress CMS. All pages use as much of the default functionality already delivered by WordPress. This is further enhanced with our custom developed widgets, complemented by using some tried, tested, and trusted plugins from the WordPress vast plugin library.
As with any client, time and budget are important considerations for any project. Using the value from our continuous learning processes and our agile-like project methodology, we maintain the delivery of high quality solutions for our customers.
No matter how big or small the job, our team at Diviv want to make the entire process as simple and pain free. Speak with us today to ask how we can help you with your next project!
