Elcom toasts two wins

Australian developer Elcom has been chosen by Wine Bloc to create a Web site and content management solution for its innovative wine storage project, where 127 cells in the historicPentridge Gaol have been converted into climate-controlled wine cellars.

The company needed a Web site to introduce the concept of virtual wine storage to potential customers. The content management system will also be used to allow all Wine Bloc customers to virtually manage their personal cellars. http://www.winebloc.com.au/Home/default.aspx

Ecommerce is also on the agenda, as local and international customers will be able to buy and exchange wine once Wine Bloc is ready to begin trading.

“Elcom’s flexibility and understanding has been exceptional. It is great to know that the back end of the website is already in place so that we can hit the ground running when we launch theecommerce element of our business. The team at Elcom provided the functionality we needed as well as giving the site the look and feel we were after,” said ChrisIvkovic, Associate Director, Wine Bloc.

Elcom was also chosen by Asset Super to provide a cutting edge content management system that could be managed entirely in house. Asset Super is an industry super fund with $A1.4 billion funds under advice.

Asset Super’s previous website included a content management system that could only be modified by a third party supplier. Although this reliance had served Asset well in the past, the company’s web presence is now key to its marketing strategy. This meant that Asset Super needed to gain more control over its online presence to manage delivery to market and third party costs.

Elcom was chosen due to the strength of its CommunityManager.NET platform, the flexibility of its approach to managing the upgrade and the company’s ability to fulfil the partnering role by providing strategic advice and consultancy on market developments and technical issues.

“Elcom and the CommunityManager.NET platform provided us with flexibility and functionality that Asset had not experienced before – the product was simple and intuitive straight out of the box,” says Mary Murphy Marketing and Communications Manager, Asset Super.
