Website developed with content management system is easy to maintain without HTML experience

BCD's Professional Services team gave the Tricots Liesse public website an updated design that effectively showcases their fabrics and encourages prospects to contact them. The new website is built on BCD's custom PHP content management system (CMS), allowing Ellery to maintain the site without coding HTML.

It is not the first development project BCD has done for me. Based on the products that we've acquired from them and past development projects, there was no question of who to go to when I needed something to be designed. I trust that the solution I ask for will be developed and delivered as I asked for it.

Prior to the redesign, Tricots Liesse public website looked dated, was difficult to maintain and didn't encourage potential customers to contact them. Tricots Liesse needed a website that reflected their premium, high-quality brand by displaying their offerings and encouraging prospects to contact them. "We need to communicate what we do, what we have and what we can do for our customers. If the website looks nice, there's a further attraction to contact us," says Ellery.

Ellery, who has no HTML knowledge, would be the website's primary caretaker so a content management system was a must. "The ability to maintain our new site was critical because our fabrics change three times a year. If I'm going to use the site to showcase our fabrics, I'd better be able to manage it without having to pay a contractor every single time," says Ellery.


Features of Tricots Liesse's new public website:

  • Custom PHP content management system
  • Customizable and easy-to-update images and text
  • Clean design and clear call-to-action (encourages end users to contact them)
  • High-quality images that showcase fabrics
  • Multilingual

"Even if a user doesn't see the particular fabric they were looking for on the Tricot Liesse site, they can contact us to say that they're looking for a specific weight or width. Bingo - gotcha." says Ellery.


The project was accomplished on time and on budget. It has also eliminated the need to hire a contractor to manage the site because Ellery is able to do it himself within the CMS."It's slick - I can move parts of the website around, alter the text within minutes and upload new pictures easily. The site has a structure but within the structure, the content is totally customizable depending on what we want to do with it," he says.

Ellery had a great experience working with BCD Professional Services. "The communication with the project manager and developer was excellent. Whatever needed to be done in development and whatever I asked for, it was done. If I needed some explanation, it was done, and it was always within a very reasonable amount of time."
