Milford, CT - Congregation Or Shalom of Orange, a family-oriented Conservative synagogue, approached Humanitects, Inc. to design their website. Humanitects and Or Shalom together formulated an approach to include customized e-commerce.
In Humanitects style, the team designed a one page payment form made to be as simple as possible to use. They wanted to avoid going through a multi-page shopping cart program because the Humanitects team believes that online transactions should be as effortless for the user as possible. This e-commerce solution includes multiple options for giving, accompanied by corresponding online donations and payments.
Additionally, Humanitects designed this simple e-commerce application to be easy to use for the backend user. Using humanitects customized Content Management System, Or Shalom staff can easily update and change the online donation forms.
The congregation also embarked on their first-ever annual online Purim project. For Purim, congregants send Purim baskets to one another. The idea to take this practice online allowed donors to select from an online list of options. The pricing system made it easy for congregants to send as many Purim baskets as they wished. The donor could choose to send 3 baskets, 12 baskets, or even send baskets to every member of the congregation. The program was such a big success that Or Shalom has continued the online program.
