Site of the Week: Chicago Sinai Congregation

- Monday, January 11, 2016

Business Catalyst Site of the week is Chicago Sinai Congregation designed by  Chicago Digital.

The entire project, including custom design, development, SEO and integration took about 3 months.

The biggest challenge for the designer was to figure out how to present the home page in way that is welcoming and simple, yet has a variety of information to help guide the user to the content they need.

To ensure the functionality the customer needed, the designer used the ability to collect payments via web forms to completely revamp the Donation process: Chicago Sinai can easily manage the funds available to donate to from the backend and the user is presented with an enjoyable, onsite experience to submit donations.

Also, they used a combination of the Events and Web Apps features in BC to build and easily use and maintain a calendar that allows users to register for events. The calendar was built in a way that the client can easily add a new calendar onto any page that only has events under a certain tag, such as “Religious School”.

Chicago Digital has been building websites exclusively on Adobe Business Catalyst for about 6 years. When we first discovered Business Catalyst it amplified our skills. As front-end developers we could now build beautiful, data-driven, marketing focused websites without the burden of knowing or worrying about the backend setup. It also gave our customers control over their website so that they can make updates, manage their customers, send out email campaigns, and more.” (Michael Sallander)

Chicago Digital is one of the most accomplished Business Catalyst developers in the world having built hundreds of websites on the platform, founding one of the leading BC education sites and running the central marketplace for distributing BC Apps.
