Oyster’s latest project to go live was launched at the House of Commons this week. The Fellowship of the Motor Trade (FMI) hired Oyster to redesign and redevelop their website to allow them to offer a better communications channel with fellows and reduce the organisations print requirement and reduce their impact on the environment.
The Fellowship’s new website allows fellows to log into the site and update their membership details, as well as search for other members, read about forthcoming events and comment on recent events which they have attended. The site is built in using the open-source CMS, Durpal. Drupal’s framework enables the FMI to manage their site independently whenever and wherever they need to.
A focus for the new site was to encourage new fellows to join and participate in the social events. Oyster designed a site that gives equal balance to new and existing members, encouraging visitors to become involved.
In a review of the launch event, the FMI stated: “The newly developed Fellowship website was launched and the news was greeted with great enthusiasm from those attending, all were urged to visit it as soon as possible to keep up to date with the FMI activities.”
