Industry/Sector: Manufacturing - Cigars

Time period: 2005 - present
Programming Languages: ColdFusion, Flash 8, XML, HTML, CSS, Javascript,
Database: SQL Server
Environment: Windows 2000/2003, IIS

Established in 1996, Drew Estate has a strong influence in the industry of premium cigar makers. Their first website became active in 1999. In 2005, Crystal Coding Concepts was asked to reorganize and revamp their web site. In 2006, we added a custom mailing list management system and additional functionality. In 2007, we did another facelift and continued development.

We enjoy our business relationship with the folks at Drew Estate. They are energetic about changes and take risks that make them truly unique in business. Projects completed to date are:
  • First revamp of site
  • Templated website design in ColdFusion
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Custom mailing list management system - From Under The Bridge
  • Database management system
  • Ongoing mailing list management
  • Events page feature
  • Content Management for events
  • Event email broadcasts by states
  • Web analytic reporting with conversion targets

In order to promote their products and support the stores and customers who purchase their product, Drew Estate sponsors events at the individual store level across the United States. Crystal Coding Concepts was given the project of creating an "Events" feature and all surrounding maintenance support. This feature has the added option for the visitor to view only the events for the state in which they are interested.

Currently, we are revamping the website for a second time. It will have a new, upbeat look; include current features, new flash features, audio and more. We shouldn't spill the beans on this new version, but it will be fun AND serve the Drew Estate visitors. Drop in on their site from time to time. When this version goes live, it will be a cool place to explore.

Client:  "Shailen & his team are great. Working with us can be difficult, and they handle all our requests and changes quickly, efficiently, and the creative input is always a plus. They've made the daunting task of creating a very tech heavy, database driven website a pleasure."
