Animal Conservation Society logo

The Animal Conservation Society (ACS) is a private nonprofit based near Chicago, IL. ACS is internationally  recognized for its cutting-edge animal care and conservation of nature. The organization seeks to inspire and  engage children, students, teachers, and other wildlife enthusiasts to make a positive impact on the natural world around them.

Challenge Challenge - Mountain without Flag

ACS developed their E-Commerce system in-house over a 10-year period, so general site maintenance had  become problematic. There were numerous bugs and the graphic design of the site had become fragmented, making the site unappealing, so the ticket and membership registration page needed to be redesigned with the  updated framework. ACS was also looking to fix their donation, event registration and product pages by re- factoring the website.

ACS’s E-Commerce system was built using classic ASP, ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0, meaning their entire  system now needed to be standardized on a solid, proven and supportable platform and framework.

Solution Solution - Mountain with Flag

The custom solution alligatortek created was a completely new E-Commerce platform to replace their previous system. This application upgraded ACS’s existing external and backstage websites to Kentico 7.0, a Microsoft  web content management system that is used to create websites and online stores.

      Membership platform UI

All existing pages were rebuilt as Kentico 7.0, while ACS’s ASP.NET and classic ASP pages were converted to  Kentico as well. The dynamic pages previously generated via PageGen were converted to Kentico too. Now,  there was a logical grouping of functions and modules within their website.
