Web development case study: Grand Old House




Grand Old House which is 100 year old plantation house right on the waters edge, is the place where tradition lives and life is celebrated. It is one of the finest locations on the island offering a taste of culture, heritage and history. It is an ideal location for weddings and corporate events where a dedicated team and personal event planner can have very good experience to arrange an exclusive and magnificent event.


Grand Old House, as the words say was having very “Old” website developed using PHP but without any dynamic features and content management facilities. The design was very poor and so was very hard to identify what it is about! Content organization was really unfriendly for the visitors that hardly make them to stay on the website to research more about its qualities, offerings etc.


Viteb reviewed the website and planned very neat and clean organization of the contents and call to actions with a nice graceful design interface which is not only a good website but also have very interesting features like, photo galleries, event galleries, online dinner and banquet reservation request forms, guestbook etc. which really makes Grand Old House eventful that helps visitors to approach Grand Old House for their needs. Management of content on the website is now managed from backend with very friendly administrative interface. Website is developed in PHP scripting language with MySQL as database.
