Delta Systems was pleased to receive a Silver ADDY Award for CloudSMTP.com

3 for 3 Plus a People’s Choice AND Best of Interactive!

All of us here at Delta Systems are very pleased to announce our awards received at the 2010 Mid-Mo American Advertising Federation ADDY celebration. We walked away with a Gold in Interactive Consumer HTML for our work on Baumgartner’s Boone County Ham, a Silver in Interactive Business-to-Business HTML for CloudSMTP, and a Gold in Interactive Self-Promotion for our very own JustCallDelta.com. We were also very honored to be presented with the 2010 Best of Interactive award for the Boone County Ham website.

Our Buddies Won Too

Delta Systems would like to congratulate our friends, occasional project partners, and fellow 2010 Best of … winners at Woodruff Sweitzer and Boxcar Films. As always, they cranked out some amazing work. We’re proud to continue providing technical, database, and website hosting expertise to their clients.

Eldon, MO School District Launches New Websites

August 13, 2010

Eldon, MO School District's New Website

Eldon, MO launched a new website for each school in their district this week

For our latest project, Delta Systems was asked to design and develop a comprehensive solution for managing the websites of the Eldon School District and each of its indiviual schools. The challenge was to seamlessly and comprehensively distribute the management responsibilities of the site across the schools, rather than have everything controlled at the central office.

Using the Multi-Site functionality built into WordPress 3.0 (formerly exclusive to WordPress MU), we were able to build a system that allows moderators within each individual school to update and maintain their own respective sub-sites while leaving administrators at central office the ability to oversee the entire system from a single login.

We are WordPress experts

Now, the district can spread out the responsibilities of content updating by school, department, and teacher, avoiding the potential of a bottleneck at the central office.

Client Quotes

“The new website looks amazing! We are getting a lot of nice comments about it.”
Colleen McGirl – Secretary to the Superintendent

“Like the banner! Like the design! Everything looks great.”
Matt Davis – Superintendent

Delta Launches Site for Timmerman’s Maintenance Technology

July 23, 2010

Timmerman's Maintenance TechnologyThis week, Delta Systems launched our first site utilizing the newest features in WordPress 3.0. The lucky recipient was a local Columbia heating & cooling company called Timmerman’s Maintenance Technology.

Tom Timmerman needed a simple site showing his phone number, a list of services, and a few customer testimonials. Delta Systems, working along with local media group Boxcar Films, gave him a fresh and fun design that did exactly that.

Not being overly experienced in web development and content management systems, Tom also wanted to ensure that he would be able to update his services list and insert new testimonials with ease. That’s where the new WordPress custom post type feature came into play.

WordPress 3 Custom Post Types

Delta Knows WordPress 3.0 Custom-Post Types

Using custom-tailored forms, Tom can now add, change, or remove items from his list of services with 2 clicks of the mouse. And when a customer pays him a compliment, he can just as easily add a testimonial to the page in the same way.   Either way, the output is instantly styled and published to his homepage, making this one of our most user-friendly content management experiences to date.
