NAV is a law firm in Southern California that has been providing legal assistance to children with disabilities, and to families with disabled members, since 1981. NAV was initially one of SADA’s managed services clients, and they became a web development client as well. Their website, initially created by SADA, provided an adequate online resource for clients and
potential clients. Over time the original website, like any website, grew outdated. Some content on the website was no longer relevant, and the techniques used to create it, while leading edge
at the time, are now obsolete. The time had come to re-create the look of NAV online.
When NAV approached SADA to redesign their website they asked for updates that would allow them to do two new things. They would be able to update the website on their own. In addition they wanted the ability to stream video answers to questions received from clients, and visitors to their websites.
To provide the needed functionality SADA proposed developing the updated website on the Joomla Content Management System (CMS). To keep cost and development time low, SADA also recommended using an existing template. SADA and NAV worked together to select a template and ensure the existing web host would be able to accommodate the updated websites open-source platform.
The final product provides NAV with vastly upgraded functionality, and opens the website to them in a way that may not have been doable even just a few years ago. Some improvements include:
- Updated media page featuring an updated photo gallery.
- NAV has the ability to edit website content through the front end.
- A new, updated look and layout.
- A question & answer page featuring video answers to questions.
