    The New Zealand Transport Agency

    The New Zealand Transport Agency was formed from two large government departments. DevCore was used to bring together the content from the different websites into a single entity.
    This was a very large and complex build.

    Marselme is a boutique e-commerce site that sells high quality merino wool clothes for babies and children. This was an interesting site to build. The design parameters changed half way through the process and there were issues with designers... it would have been enough to drive a developer insane.

    Cherrytree - The club for smart shoppers - members site

    Cherrytree is a shopping club that buys goods at wholesale prices and then passes those goods to its members.

    This was a massive project in the end, with prices and avalaiblity updated automatically and integration with their back-end accounting systems giving them an end-to-end system.

    BGI Developments

    BGI Developments is a start-up that is going places really fast. They needed a website yesterday.

    That's where DevCore really came into its own. The hosting arrangement was non-standard. Effectively we had to run a newer version of DevCore inside an older version in order to deploy their new site without affecting an existing site.
    This saved time and money on setting up a completely new site.

    Domett Trailers

    Domett Trailers manufactures truck trailers. They need a new site to cope with the increasing demand for their products, and to showcase all the different types of trailers they can build.

    The trailer galleries were all built from scratch, as was the trailer database where clients can log in to get all the information about their trailers - right down to the component parts used!

    The RightCar website is one of the sites under the NZTA mantle. It is useful for checking out the safety and fuel efficiency of cars and other interesting facts like emmissions etc.

    This was a slightly different build for DevCore. most of the dynamic content is served up via web services, instead of being pulled from a database.

    Cherrytree - The club for smart shoppers - public site

    Following on from the success of the members only website, the people at Cherrytree wanted to update their public website. So using the existing DevCore codebase we simply added a few new folders, a few new classes, and the site was good to go.

About Us

DevCore was founded and developed by Trevor George, a professional PHP developer, in 2008.
The first fully fledged DevCore site was built in 2008 and was a huge success. The build time was 10 days.
The site was finished even before the designer had come up with the design concept! Deployment was a breeze.
End user training consisted of a quick demo halfway through the build process. They had no trouble using the system and remarked that it was much easier to use than their other websites.
I was onto a winner! Read More
