IQCS Membership Website
Our project with the IQCS (Interviewer Quality Control Scheme) is one of the oldest on Coderra’s books – but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth shouting about! Members of IQCS uphold and adhere to a set of standards which cover the recruitment, training and appraisal of data collection staff. With various procedures in place, the IQCS ensures that research is carried out to high standards, as well as making the data collection process more efficient, saving time and money for businesses. As part of this project, we were asked to create a full membership website, with a dedicated, password-protected area that would be easy for the client to manage. We also provided managed hosting for the site, offering peace of mind for the client that their site would experience low levels of downtime. They also benefit from our tiered backup system and daily virus scanning.
As this was one of our older projects, there was little demand for responsive websites. This means the site isn’t currently optimised for access by smartphones and tablet devices – but this is perhaps something that IQCS will consider in the future as they revamp their website once more, to bring it up to date. Adapting a non responsive site to make it display better on phones and iPads can be quite easy on simple websites like this one. It’s also something to consider to boost Google rankings. Putting that aside, the colours, layout and features all work well on the website and it certainly has click appeal.
The membership website we constructed is still in place today, with a dedicated area for members of the IQCS to learn the latest updates, manage their own membership and keep up with best practice. As this is one of our older tasks, the longevity of the membership section shows that our services are fully future proof, and will remain relevant and accessible for many years after implementation if they are managed correctly.
