Website Launch: Pelvic Pain Rehab

Voilà! After the culmination of a lot of planning, design, and coding we are proud to present Pelvic Pain Rehab’s new website!

Pelvic Pain Rehab

More About The Company

What started as a Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco in 2006, Pelvic Pain Rehab has now opened their doors in three locations in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Los Gatos. One of the things that make their clinics unique, is that as physical therapists they focus solely on the pelvic floor and pelvic girdle muscles.

The PHRC team are also committed to educating the medical community and the public about pelvic health. Toward that end, Liz, Stephanie and Marcy are frequent speakers on the topic of pelvic floor physical therapy at different events around the globe.

In addition to their regular speaking engagements, organizational activities, and community outreach, the PHRC staff writes an award-winning weekly blog where they tackle a variety of issues related to pelvic health and rehab.

Design and Development

pelvic-pain-rehab

When PHRC approached us, they were not new to the online scene and knew what they wanted. They already had a successful blog and needed a revamped website to go with it. The design had to be unique, show off their personality, and really leave a lasting impression. On top of all that, they wanted it in WordPress so they could easily manage their website content and navigation structure, while also having the capability to manage their blog seamlessly on the same platform. Their existing website had so much content, it made it easy for us to learn about their company and get a feel for what kind of website they needed. So, we had all this content, a blog, and a great story; this left us with one choice – dive in head first!

menusWe ended up creating a large navigation and a dual slider. We don’t often need to develop a 3-tier drop-down menu, but when we finished, it looked great! We designed and developed a multi-sectional slider as well. One section had images with text; the other, videos. It’s important to keep your home page always evolving and growing as your company does, so we gave them the ability to manage this content quickly and effectively. The next important issue for PHRC was making sure their clients knew where to schedule an appointment, so we made sure this was highlighted on every page.

The team at Pelvic Pain Rehabilitation Center understood the importance of a strong social media presence and wanted it integrated with their website. We integrated their facebook and twitter feeds right on their home page! You’ll find it on their blog, their homepage, and any page in-between that people may want to read and share with their friends. With social integration, calendar events, recent blog posts, and easy-to-manage home page content, we’ve made it easy to keep their home page up to date on a daily basis.

Responsive Design

PHRC-Responsive-Presentation

The folks at PHRC wanted to make sure their website was easy to use regardless of what mobile platform their readers might be using. We set them up with a responsive design. This means every page of their custom website design will automatically adapt to the user’s window size. We went through each page and optimized it for mobile platforms. The result was great and seeing it all come together on the hand-held devices is truly rewarding.

In Closing

PHRC (as well as TrevNet Media) were very pleased with the final results of this design. Keeping a steady flow of communication between their staff and our team greatly helped in making PHRC’s vision a reality. With a fresh new look and feel to show off their talented company, you can expect to see and hear a lot more of Pelvic Pain Rehab in the future.

Website Launch: Gagliardi Insurance Services

We’ve rolled out with another one! This website has been designed for a great company who provides a mix of specialty insurance coverage for almost any venue you can imagine. Gagliardi Insurance Services was a lot of fun to work with. They maintained high energy and excellent communication throughout the whole design process. We definitely look forward to working with them in the future.

Development Process

application-downloadsHere is another WordPress powered website we developed. Gagliardi wanted the ability to fully manage their website, its content and navigational structure. They also needed a blog, which they didn’t have with their old website. They needed the ability to add their (PDF) application downloads relevant to each page in the quickest, simplest way possible. The applications are listed in the sidebar as well as on the Apply Now page, which is updated automatically as new applications are updated.

We had a chance to explore some new types of design with this one. We wanted a really big in-your-face interactive home page to show off what Gagliardi does. We came up with a dynamic slider that expanded with the whole page and placed text on top of each slide. The three columns on the home page are actually tabular that expand when you mouse over them. We used the Basic jQuery Slider plugin for the slider and the rest was custom coded.

Gagliardi’s Online Application System

insurance_applicationsUp until Gagliardi had our team of highly trained monkeys behind them, they had all of their customers print, fill out, and fax back in their application submissions. Needless to say, they came to us for a solution and we were able to get them a fully featured online application system.

You can now sign up and fill out their “Youth Football” application online. The entire process has been digitized. We took their 15 page print out application and converted it into an interactive step-by-step online guide. We had to come up with a system that would allow people to fill out the application in multiple passes. Once an account is registered, the user can login again at any time and resume their online application from where they left off.

Since the applications are so long, we really wanted to hold the hand of the end user while they filled it out. We worked very closely with the team behind Gagliardi to fine tune their online application forms. It was important that their clients found the registration process simple and easy to use.

Throughout the process of filling out the online application, there are dozens of tool tips and hints to help the user along the way. One of the biggest problems with doing a large application like this without the help of an application system is doing the math yourself. This takes time for employees to check, recheck, confirm, and then finally hand off to the client for approval. We wanted to circumvent this whole process by doing the math right in front of the user while they’re filling out the application. As the user moves through each step and fills out the form, the numerical data is calculated on the fly. When the application is completed, a copy is sent to both parties.

Over the next few months, we will be integrating all of their online applications with this new system. We were able to provide Gagliardi with a fully featured administration system to manage all of the submitted applications and interact with them. The success with this system has already been shown as their clients use it and we are grateful for the opportunity to provide such a tool.

Final Thoughts

It’s always nice to build a website and fulfill the vision of our clients down to the last detail. The smooth design process and great communication we had with them only further demonstrates the kind of company they are. We know their new site will provide them many exciting new opportunities with clients and brokers. We’re excited to work with them in the future as their website and online application grows with their company.
