Content Management System
With a new Web site and commerce engine in place, Mixed Greens needed to streamline their workflow and reduce the overall operating budget by bringing site maintenance in-house. After evaluating several off-the-shelf products, they turned to Media Farm to build a custom publishing tool.
First, we studied Mixed Greens' internal processes and developed a system to map onto their existing work flow. The custom tool was designed with multiple user levels and tiered approval to support and streamline internal operations. Media Farm also designed and built a WYSIWYG editor with easy-to-use drag and drop layout features, empowering Mixed Greens' non-technical graphic designers with the ability to design custom layouts and deploy content through a graphic interface-without ever having to write a single line of code.
We also designed and developed technology that connects Mixed Greens' in-house contact management database with the Web site, turning a disparate infrastructure into a streamlined, single system. With this technology, Mixed Greens has been able to keep their systems centralized, doing in five minutes what used to take days.
