Runway Sale, South Africa's first flash sale fashion site is the biggest and most popular site developed by African Web Science. It has been hugely successful and has a very large user base of customers that return often to look at the latest deals and buy products. The site also has a referral system built in with rewards. This is linked to a custom developed Facebook App allowing users to earn money by inviting their friends.
eCloset is a full ecommerce shopping cart website. The client was looking for a solution that allowed her to showcase the talent of South African designers and allowed the public the opportunity to show for limited edition, one-of-a kind clothing and accessories.

Prestedge Retief Dresner Wijnberg (PRDW) are a multinational company and required a full redevelopment of their website. The website was in Flash and therefore difficult to manage. Furthermore, there were different versions of the site for the different languages and regions in which they operated. African Web Science redeveloped the site as a Drupal multi-site content management system (CMS). The site is multilingual and so a translation interface is built into the back-end allowing the customer to add content in one language and then translated it into another language.
Errand Girl provides a niche and specialised service. As such she required a website that was a cut above the rest from a design point of view. Our designers worked through numerous iterations with the client before finally settling on the stunning and original design that makes the site so unique. The site is not only beautiful but functional too. The client wanted to be able to update the front page calendar, the post-it note and other small details throughout the site so as to keep it fresh and up to date at all times.
MCQP is one of the biggest events on the Cape Town party calendar with over 5000 people attending. For 3 years running African Web Science has redesigned and developed the MCQP site which usually launches in November. Both local and international party goers check the site for updates on venue details, ticketing information, transport and local accomodation. The client uses the site to constantly update the DJ and dance floor information as well as post updates as the event draws closer. The site also serves as a mechanism for people to get in-touch with the organizers and after the party, a place to look at photos of the event. African Web Science also built a fully-functional and successful online shop for ticket sales. There were over 1000 tickets brought on the site in the space of 2 months.
Baltimore Aircoil are a multinational company with a number of websites. They required a site specifically for their new South African office. The site needed to be in keeping with the general corporate image but also have its own individual identity. African Web Science created a site that would showcase all the products offered by the company. Each product needed to have multiple pages as well as images and downloadable PDFs. The site therefore was set up as a Drupal content management system (CSM) so that the client could easily add and manage their products with minimal support required.
ALR Property Ventures required a full content management system for displaying the various projects that they had been involved in. These projects needed to be categorised in such a way that users could easily find what they were looking for and so that certain properties could be featured on the front page. The site was developed so that the office staff at ALR could maintain the site in a user-friendly way. There is also a newsletter sign-up block on the front page which automatically subscribes users to the site newsletter.
New Horizons is a Cape Town based community events company. The required a site that was easy to update on which they could post information about their upcoming events. They also wanted to be able to post photo galleries from previous events as well as videos and other information. The site was developed on the Drupal CMS platform in such a way as to allow them to update it themselves on a regular basis.
Prodder is the biggest directory of NGOs and other development organizations in South Africa. They required their database of over 10,000 contacts be migrated to a new website that was searchable by name, province and other fields. Each organization has many details of which some are public and others only accessible to the back-end. African Web Science created a CRM for the client using Drupal CiviCRM. The client can now update all records of the back-end and the individual contacts also have the ability to update their own profiles.
