The question comes up -- who really needs a web site? A Coffeehouse? The answer turned out to be absolutely! With a regularly changing music and event schedule, seasonal menu changes, and services beyond what you would expect from a neighborhood coffee house, the Capitol Coffeehouse and Bistro needed a dynamic site to provide current information to their growing, dedicated customer base.
Conquent helped the Capitol Coffeehouse and Bistro in an ongoing relationship. With the initial web design came a complete graphic design package for cards, flyers, menus, and more. To make it easy to keep the ever changing information relevant, we implemented content management tools to let them change info at their own pace.
Most importantly, we worked with them to keep a reasonable budget in the tough restaurant industry.
This is a perfect example of what it means to create a website from a piece of art. Even without knowing the subtleties of HTML, it's an attractive, functional website.
The thing to keep in mind is that it's not a static picture, it's web programming that search engines can read, as well as people using tools for the visually impaired.
The web team seamlessly pulled the programming into the site in such a way it's impossible to tell what's being dropped into a template. Heck, this site is anything BUT a template, and yet the web team built it with the same tools that others would make a repetitive, boxy site out of.
With music four nights a week, various featured local artists, regular wine tastings, special dinners, and events, the staff at the Bistro needed an easy interface to keep folks up to date.
Conquent developed an intuitive Site Administration that allowed the Bistro to continually edit their website and maintain their professional image.
By tracking the date of the event, Conquent's system also automatically removes old events so the Bistro can stack up as many future events as they like without cluttering up the site.
