Client Challenges

The Tempe Chamber of Commerce existing website was a template style website that simply did not work for such a large and active chamber.  The site’s CMS or Content Management System was very limited and did now allow the chamber any flexibility in customization or personalization.  The structure of the site did not allow the chamber to make better use of valuable real estate including creating important call-to-actions such as join the Chamber and advertise with the chamber.  The menu navigation was extremely busy and drop-down sensitivity made it difficult to select the correct pages.  The site also lacked an appealing design and did not allow for a clean and thoughtful manner to present the wealth of information and events.

NuWave Results

Most chambers of commerce are not aware of the fact that they do not have to be stuck with a generic, template style website that doesn’t work for them.  This was not the case for the Tempe Chamber whose mission is to help create a strong local economy, representing the needs of businesses before government, promoting the community and providing networking opportunities.  The Tempe Chamber required a custom website that would serve as an invaluable tool and resource in fulfilling this mission. The new site had to correct the short-comings of the existing site and include; a custom integration of Chamber Master Member Management System, an integrated store to allow members to purchase advertising directly through the website, automated member logo upload capabilities, robust community calendar, multimedia center, social media integration and a user-friendly and robust Content Management System.   All of these functions were wrapped in a very clean and striking design that sets the bar high for Chambers of Commerce!
