All these microsites are managed within a single content management system (CMS) by respective department’s editor or project manager. These microsites can be easily added, removed or edited by the content management system implemented.

SYSTEM DESIGN

During the design state, we have to work with the corporate guidelines and corporate identity for each design we proposed. We have embraced gold color as the main theme color as suggested in the corporate identity guideline. Luxury and Elegant is the main concept of the Group and Property website. Whereas for microsites, each project has their own prefered theme and looks & feels for the design. We have to create different theme with different taste for these microsites to make them attractive and stands out from other competitor’s websites.

For system design, it has to be able to cater big number of visitors due to the popularity of the company. We have to optimize the application, server and cotent images in order to maximize the performance to maintain best user experience at all time.
