Distinctive Italy – Italian Wedding Planners of Distinction

Distinctive Italy Weddings

Italy’s premier wedding planning company ‘Distinctive Italy Weddings‘ have launched their brand new website.
In response to the rapid transition of users moving to mobile devices to surf the web ‘Distinctive Italy Weddings‘ is ensuring that the fast growing requirement for their services can be handled in an even speedier and user friendly manner.

During 2016 it was interesting to see the growing percentage of users visiting the site on mobile devices. Over the winter months the amount of users on non-desktop devices went over 68% and the decision was made to update the website once again.

For the fourth time since 2011  Joomla! CMS specialists ‘Navega Bem – Web Design‘ were once again commissioned to carry out this important project.
The design brief was basically to create a completely new site identity integrating the latest technology whilst focusing on keeping a highly user friendly interface.

Creative Director Chris Szabo explained “We were honoured to be once again asked to create the new website for DIW and the project took several months to complete. The continuing obvious choice of CMS for this site is Joomla! The newest Joomla! release which is now at 3.7 is an amazing CMS platform and much like the original iPhone has turned into something unbelievably efficient and user friendly.”

“Developing websites with Joomla! means we can deliver spectacular multi-lingual sites that are SEO friendly, device independent and simple for our clients to manage themselves without our help.”

“The multi-lingual responsive website was created using the Joomla platform and features sophisticated functionality that culminates in a very user friendly experience. We highly recommend Joomla as it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. So our clients are not tied to us and can manage the site easily themselves and there are no license fees.”

“Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. This in itself is a major advantage over proprietary CMS software because you are not tied to one single development company. If you want to change your web design company, you don’t have to redo your site. Equally important is that any security vulnerabilities are quickly identified and fixed.”

The Hotel Atrio is a unique 22 room family run hotel located in Estreito da Calheta, on the sunny south side of Madeira Island, just 45 minutes from the island’s capital city Funchal. The charming Hotel lies on the edge of a Eucalyptus forest, only 500m from the Levada Nova and near the Laurel forest which has been designated a natural world heritage site by Unesco.

Hotel Atrio has now launched its new website – after running its original website for 15 years. That is quite a feat!
The new site has once again been developed by Navega Bem Web Design.

Old Atrio Madeira website

Chris Szabo, Creative Director of Navega Bem explained “15 years ago we created the original website for Hotel Atrio. It was a simple static HTML website and served its purpose wonderfully. Such was its effectiveness that the hotel owners were quite happy to keep it running even though it was not mobile friendly.”

“Now that the hotel has been expanded with the addition of several new rooms the decision was made to create a new website and we are delighted to have been asked to take on the project. The site has been developed with Joomla CMS allowing it to be fully managed by the hotel without outside help.”

“This is a fully responsive solution that will allow Atrio Madeira to reach their clients on their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The site, available in three languages presents the hotel in a new and attractive manner.
An important step in developing this new website was the SEO work developed in the background, this allowed us to guarantee that our client would maintain their already excellent google ranking.”
