We were asked to create a search page for the new Ross & Co website designed by Creative Advertising Ltd.

As the previous website outsourced the search facility we not only had to create the search page but the database had to be created as well.

The search page was required to provide results on multiple criteria which could be refined at a later point by the user.

Also the user needed to be able to send an enquiry form along with any selected property details to the Ross & Co e-mail address.

The property database had to be populated and updated by the Ross & Co property management software, EstateCraft by Vebra.

The updated property details needed to be available on the website within 10 minutes of being submitted by the office.

It was also required that no extra work be created for the office staff. This was achieved by the use of several, different, technologies involved in transmitting information from one database to another.

Each updated record had to be exported to a XML file which was then processed and the results sent to a 'listener' page. This page then acting upon the type of update would either delete, update or insert record.

The images and property detail PDF's are also uploaded to the server automatically.
