Over several months, Nform worked with HSM’s marketing and technology managers to develop a new website based upon their detailed project requirements. The project called for a transition away from a legacy Cold Fusion system, and a move towards a modern PHP/MySQL solution.
New databases were designed and, along the way, we developed an array of property-management tools to consolidate vast amounts of data for each property listing. Administrative tools were developed which allow website admins to manage property images, text content, physical map locations, listing brokers, market data, documents and much, much more.
A series of widgets were built to utilize the Google Maps API, and to aid in locating properties via the “map view”. A simple property search may yield hundreds of results. To make searching for properties a bit easier, visual aids such as marker clusters and custom, color-coded map markers were created. In addition, filters were developed which allow website visitors to view property listings by city, county, market, property type, etc.
Nform also developed a series of image management and manipulation tools which include a property image library, photo slideshows, custom image cropping and manipulation controls, a stock image library, and more.
