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 affiliated with the 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 also easily manage their own websites.
From the outset the website required careful planning and organisation to ensure the hundreds of pages and languages could be effectively managed.
We developed extensive site plans carefully considering how users would navigate the website to find the information required.
Essential for the new website was integrating a membership database allowing new members to directly apply to join the EMCC. The EMCC had an ageing database unable to 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 allowing for easy searches for coaches, mentors and volunteers who are members of the EMCC. This is a very popular resource attracting significant visitors to the website.
Each of the 26 countries affiliated to the EMCC have their own independent websites on which they can add specific information.
Our relationship with the EMCC continues to evolve with ongoing support and maintenance provided, and the range of web applications we have developed for them.
