The project involved design and implementation of an online information and advertisements portal for SOFTZONE GROUP. This system is able to act as a catalogue of information that captures the attention of people from all walks of life. The website offers a gateway to other websites belonging to registered companies that wish to advertise to the world their services and/or products in a more affordable way. The website offers services like anonymous email services and e-newsletter services. The critical approach to this project was based on the fact that success of such a website depended on the ability to meet customer needs and continuously introduce new services that compete effectively in the current growing market. The main objective of this project was to design and implement an e-commerce site that serves as the portal of information. Such information is offered through paid-for advertisements and/or other tradeoffs agreed, while attracting site visitors through innovative features such as emails and subscription for e-newsletter. The execution of this project was limited to planning, analysis, design and implementation of an ‘Online Advertisements and Information system’ hosted on a website. Designs evolved from system requirements by interpreting the structural views of the information. i.e., processes, logic and data models. Throughout the project, feedbacks where forwarded to the next level of activity and this made each step more productive than the previous. I am pleased to have managed to meet the deadline and present the project with full compliance to the original user specifications.
