Website Portfolio (7)
The Virginia Housing and Supportive Services' Northern Virginia Regional Implementation Team (NoVA RIT) educates individuals, families and service providers about integrated, independent housing and housing resources.
Ursa Major Consulting created its Housing Resource Guide website. The Resource Guide incorporates a database on apartment complexes, housing resources and programs, and provides videos and webinars as part of a toolkit to help individuals move to independent housing.
The site was created using Joomla! and associated components. New housing resources and programs can be submitted for approval by members of the public and administered by the NoVA RIT.
Delta Consulting Group, an international consulting firm, needed a new website that featured its professionals.
Delta's experts provide consulting and expert witness services in delay, damage and defects analysis, forensic accounting, loss of productivity, and related services on multifaceted litigation and arbitration cases around the world.
Their professionals consult on project controls, construction audits, planning and scheduling, and budget analysis.
Ursa Major developed the website using Joomla 3, using Zoo for the directory of professionals. Their content is administered by an in-house staff, supported by Ursa Major as needed.
Talltree South, an award-winning condo community association, provides its owners and tenants handbook, including rules and regulations,in searchable form via its website. Newsletters, e-mail and e-mail-to-text notices, and a window to its Google calendar are also provided to enhance communication with owners and tenants.
Ursa Major constructed the site in Joomla! 1.5 and later upgraded it to 2.5 and then 3.x. The content-rich site is very functional. Plans are to update its look in the coming year.
JMA Solutions, an award-winning government contractor, wanted a site that highlighted their corporate capabilities and awards, advertised their job openings, and provided internal forms and documents for employees.
Ursa Major provided quick turn-around on a conversion from the old website, trained the internal site administrators, and later upgraded the site.
More recently, Ursa Major led an internal Website Refresh group at JMA Solutions to refresh the site and provide a feature on the front page for current announcements.
The Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington DC, a professional membership organization, required a website that provided members with up-to-date tourist site status on mobile devices, and online event registration and payment.
The site incorporated the ability for Guild staff and other site users to manage a calendar and event registration, upload photos to the rotator, and maintain a directory of tour company affiliate members. The public can request tour guides, who maintain their profiles including specialties and languages spoken.
We received many kudos for the Joomla! website.
The Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS ® (NVAR) engaged Ursa Major Consulting to provide Joomla! expertise in supporting the transition to a new website.
A usability study and brand design was done by WM Design Group.
Ursa Major supported the high-traffic, high-content site in Joomla! for several years before its recent transition to integrate with a membership management soution.
The Law Offices of Mitchell Garabedian, a law firm specializing in sexual abuse cases, required a website that was responsive to quickly post breaking news of new settlements and media coverage. It was difficult to make changes to their previous site.
We redeployed the website and added new capabilities, including embedded video and transcripts of press conferences, and improvements to search engine optimization (SEO).
We continue to support the Law Offices of Mitchell Garabedian with site updates and improvements.
