Portfolio - Our Clients' Websites
Below is a sample of the websites that Virtual Creations has developed...
All of the sites listed on this page were developed using our virtualCMS technology that allows the sites' owners to maintain their website content themselves
The list below contains a further sample of websites developed using virtualCMS:
Croll Real EstateCroll is a perfect example of a Virtual Creations Real Estate website. One of our flagship websites, Croll's website allows its owners to:
virtualCMS has saved Croll countless hours of property administration.
- Add their properties for sale and for rent directly into their website, including photos (using our virtualCMS technology) so that the properties are instantly searchable on their website.
- Have property details automatically emailed to interested buyers
- Have property details uploaded with the click of a button to the major Australian real estate portals (Domain, RealEstate.com.au, etc)
- Print property details in the form of window display placards or even rental lists for their reception.
Catholic Education Commission NSW
The Catholic Education Commission of NSW is one of Virtual Creations' major clients.
These needs are perfectly suited to a virtualCMS website.
- They have a large database of members, all of whom need to log on and view special "members-only" content
- They have a large group of content contributors, all of whom need to log on and add content to the site, which could include text, images, MP3 files, video clips, PDF documents and links to other sites
Sound Connection is a mens a cappella chorus based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. As well as needing a website to advertise for gigs and new members, the chorus needed a way to manage their communications with their many members.
They needed to:
...and many other administrative tasks.
- Distribute sheet music and teaching recordings
- Distribute chorus notices and event details
- Track attendance to events and rehearsals
- Centrally manage their membership database
Virtual Creations specialises in websites for singing groups. Our virtualCMS technology handles the technology needs for many singing groups, both in Australia and North America.
Colourful Trips is a travel centre operating their own interesting and fun trips and tours. They are based in Sydney, Australia, and mostly run short trips (1-3 days) in the Sydney Region.
They approached Virtual Creations because their existing site was impossible for them to maintain themselves. They wanted a site where they could:
Virtual Creations provided all this using this using our virtualCMS technology - ideally suited to the job.
- Enter all the trip details themselves
- Allow visitors to book and pay for trips online
- Receive instant email and SMS notification of new trip bookings
- Allow their agents and other representatives to log in and book passengers onto trips
- Allow their drivers to get up-to-date trip passenger manifests and trip details direct from the website.
Fresh FacedFresh Faced Skincare is a great example of a Virtual Creations eCommerce site. Fresh Faced sells skincare and beauty products online, via a shopping cart system. Using virtualCMS means:
All of these features come as standard in our virtualCMS websites.
- Payments are secure
- Shipping charges are calculated automatically
- Voucher numbers can be entered for discounts
- Payments are made direct into the site owner's bank account
- The site owner can easily maintain their product database online (with photos)
- The site owner can generate reports such as order summaries.
And of course, the Virtual Creations website itself (the site you're now viewing) was built using virtualCMS. What kind of product would we be offering if we didn't use it ourselves?
In fact, our client management database (where we track the details of all our client websites, hosting packages, servers, domains, contact details and outstanding tasks) was one of the initial applications of virtualCMS.
