Braun Travel


Technologies: DotNetNuke / ASP.NET Custom Programming

A dealer incentive travel website for The Braun Corporation.

The DotNetNuke platform was chosen because of the varied security requirements of this website, and the need to develop custom modules that would interface with the corporate database.

In addition to these, this website had the following requirements:

  • Content updatable by website owner
  • Access control based on dealer groups and incentive level
  • Trip registration, validation, and administrative confirmation pages
  • Photo and video pages for past trips
  • Contact page for dealers to communicate with trip administrators
  • Interface to corporate database to determine dealer eligibility

Peruse the remaining slides to get a glimpse of how the above requirements were met, and visit the website link above to view the entire website.

Flexible Content Layout

Another helpful aspect of DotNetNuke is its flexible, what-you-see-is-what-you-get style of content editing.  All done through the website itself with no need for external tools such as FrontPage or DreamWeaver.

Plugins of diverse functionality, at reasonable cost, make building a website using DotNetNuke very economical and easy to maintain.
