1001listes: Website overhaul
Created in 1999, 1001listes was the first "à la carte" online wedding gift registry in France. Since then the company has grown considerably and, in the summer of 2000, began extending its services to cities such as Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Lille, Montpellier, Toulouse and Nantes. In addition, 1001lists has expanded its registry service to include registries for a variety of special events.
In the spring of 2000, 1001listes decided overhaul its Web site to make it more comprehensive and widely accessible to all users. The proposed overhaul would address issues such as event viewing and organization, site and invitation management, as well as other payment and product options.
1001listes leveraged its existing relationship with CGI France to help create a reliable, easy to maintain website.
How CGI Helped
CGI France developed the new version of the 1001listes.fr site by applying an innovative solution: CGI's component-based system, which would allow users the chance to view a gift list, organize an event, buy gifts, and make payments online.
To ensure turnkey delivery of the project, CGI coordinated, within the prescribed deadlines, the delivery, accounting verification and integration of all interface elements produced by different providers/vendors: designers, online payment, logistics for the delivery of packages, host, etc. The project began in June 2000 and the site went live in November 2000.
The new version of the 1001listes site was fully developed and live within 5 months. By the end of 2001, 1001lists.fr had successfully manages 700 wedding gift registries. Additional benefits include:
- An open-ended, user-friendly site that is can be expanded
- Improved management and processing of information
The bottom line: CGI’s technical expertise and best-in-class service not only resulted in a new and improved website, but CGI France’s continued maintenance of the site.
