Houston Zoo engaged GloboTek in the Autumn of 2017 ahead of the 2017 Zoo Lights season. Our brief was simple – to redevelop the Zoo Lights micro-site as it was clunky to manage and had mobile responsiveness issues. Therefore, we assessed the existing site for technical and design issues. We also consulted with the zoo to understand better what features were missing and where improvements to managing the site could be made.
After the review and consultation, we rebuilt the frontend but eliminated the design issues the site had. Then, we implemented several new features to make managing the site less time consuming and simpler. We developed a completely new ticket management system that fed into the existing ticketing calendar. As simple as it may be, we added a feature for site-wide notifications. This small addition allows the site admins to broadcast important information to visitors about the zoo.
Houston Zoo Lights website is developed with ease of management in mind. Each season's event dates are easily updated without the need for a digital agency or WordPress developer assistance.
