Through the Italian Trade Agency, the Machines Italia website represents over sixteen Italian Machinery-Manufacturing associations. These Associations, in turn, represent over 10,000 Italian Companies. The Italian Trade Agency with its international network of offices provides information and assistance that promotes relationships between Italian companies and foreign entities. They wanted a sleek website with sharp graphics that would help convey the three most cited reasons for using Italian machinery and technology: flexibility, creativity and innovation. They also wanted their website to serve as a portal to Italian companies through which foreign companies could submit offers and requests for business development.
Working with the Machines Italia staff we customized their CMS platform to provide ease of backend use while creating a front end that emphasized the vibrant nature of the Italian machinery sectors. We helped create a company profile form that could be easily completed by individual Italian companies and submitted to the website for verification and approval. Their website was created to allow staff to easily update information and graphics. We created a multi-lingual version of the site and customized an application that allowed them to publish a multi-lingual version of their print magazine accessible through their website.
