BCHS Website Redesign

The Problem

(BCHS) came to Courtland Consulting for a website redesign through a partnership with Bonterra (formerly Salsa Labs). They were looking to move away from their current content management system (CMS) Drupal. BCHS wanted to use the WordPress platform for their new website.  Beaver County Humane Society started with one woman on a mission to improve the lives of animals in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. BCHS has become a community service organization that carries out this mission through different programs including shelter, adoption, education and fundraising event programs.

Talk about a dream job, we got to create a website filled with pictures of puppies and kittens!

The Rest of the Story

Through our discovery process with BCHS, we learned what items were the most important and widely used. This process helped to create clean and easy navigation to forms, appointment scheduling, and help their clients to find the events and services they are seeking. With 240 pages of existing content and over 75 forms to migrate from their existing site, there was a lot of heavy lifting to just move what was there. Along with the migration of their existing content, we created two new portals for their staff and board to have a private area for sharing of documents and information.

Some of the real meat and potatoes for this web development project was developing custom coding to integrate their Salsa products. Because there currently isn’t any software available to integrate these two products. As a result, their Engage CRM platform and their shopping cart are now nicely integrated into their new WordPress website. . This will help them to capture the information input into the shopping cart within their CRM.

The Result

The new Beaver County Humane Society site is as engaging as it is useful. It highlights all the wonderful services they provide for the domestic animals of Beaver County, PA and the surrounding area. 

The site includes:

  • Event calendar
  • Volunteer and donation forms
  • Adoption and Foster applications
  • Shopping cart for medicine and appointment setting
  • Gateway for online payment
