Softlanding stepped in to create an online portal, built on Azure, and implemented on Sitefinity. The site was custom built with development done in .NET and other modern web technologies and uses Azure B2C for integrating third-party software for authentication. The solution also included assisting in the design of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementation as part of AIDE’s capability to manage user profile information, email campaigns, and case management to round out the system.
The project itself was divided into different components to address different needs. ‘Learn’, ‘Locate’, and ‘Connect’; these sections of the site were created to help the community to find information based on specific topics and topics of interest within the community. Topics align with and are tailored to the journey stages that individuals, families, and caregivers go through when understanding autism and/or intellectual disability. To maximize inclusivity of the site, the portal is fully bilingual, supporting both English and French.
This fully collaborative project used Agile scrum methodology, working with the AIDE team closely to receive feedback and adjust the project accordingly. AIDE Canada and Softlanding’s partnership and teamwork was a key reason for the success of the project, and ultimately finishing within scope, timeline and budget.
