The European Mentoring & Coaching Council develops and promotes best practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe.
After working with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) for a number of months supporting their existing website they approached us requiring a complete rebuild of their website with an integrated membership database.
The website would contain hundreds of pages in numerous languages for each of 26 countries affliated with EMCC. As a volunteer led organisation they would also need to be able to control editing rights for various areas of the website and ensure each country could easily manage their own websites too.
From the outset the website required careful planning and organisation to ensure the hundreds of pages and languages could be efftively managed. We developed extensive site plans carefully considering how users would navigate the website to find the information they require.
Key to the new website was integrating a membership database so new members could apply to join EMCC from the website. EMCC had an ageing database which couldn’t integrate with a website, we therefore built them a custom database for managing their members, with an API to integrate directly into the new website. Registered members can login any time to update their membership information and directory profile on the website.
The website features a directory for where you can search for coaches, mentors and volunteers who are members of EMCC. This is a very popular resource attracting significant visitors to the website.
Each of the 26 countries affiliated to EMCC have their own independent websites where they can add specific information.
Our relationship with EMCC continues to evolve with both the ongoing support and maintenance we provide, and the range of web applications we have also developed for them.
