Webbed Feet supporting The Landsite

Webbed Feet have taken over support and development duties for The Landsite website application and members system.
The Landsite is a dynamic new startup placing itself as the UK's first commercial property hub, bringing together resources from around the property industry.
This venture is primarily supported by their online members system. The system has facilities for publishing and sharing industry news, jobs and property listings and more – all of which is built within a bespoke CMS and framework.
The website was initially built by a third party firm – however, after difficulties arose, Webbed Feet were approached to take over the reins and develop the site further.
As part of the handover, our approach was to first spend time accommodating ourselves with the code and existing functionality. We did this without any support from the previous developers. After this period, we had a much better idea of how long things would take to develop in order to provide accurate quotes for future work.
Since taking over the development of the website, we have expanded the functionality of the website by adding features such as:
Property Feed Import. Takes property information from third party systems so that properties may be displayed on The Landsite
Forum Integration. Adding a third party forum platform, and developing a custom integration solution for sharing user data between the two.
News Feed Integration. Collates news articles from a third-party source for display on The Landsite
Job Listings. By taking existing functionality and duplicating it, we created a basic classifieds system for listing career opportunities.
Each modification is evaluated on an individual basis – we discuss various options before beginning work in order for the client to make an informed decision with regard to the balance between budget and functionality.
Whenever possible, we endeavour to build upon or expand existing functionality in order to build a consistent system.
