Austin, Texas based engineering company SensorTran is a global supplier of fiber optic-based distributed monitoring solutions. Customers benefiting from SensorTran’s DTS technology include many of the world’s largest energy providers. Interaria provided full web design and development services for SensorTran including custom web identity design, modern web code base, AJAX drop down menu system, custom PHP/MYSQL database driven content management (CMS) system, PHP/MySQL database driven and content management integrated document search web application, Google map integration, and search engine optimized metatags and content. The Web identity design with its prominent yet elegant and controlled presence builds up SensorTran's international technology savvy business position. Modern web code makes the website easy to surf and fast to load. A special emphasis during the project was put towards developing custom document management web applications that are integrated with the CMS. For instance, Interaria developed a cross-reference web application that allows SensorTran match their products according to recommended industry use. The result is database driven visual navigation icons that are displayed in the products pages and industry application pages. We also coded a database driven document indexing and search system, and database driven events calendar. All custom coded web applications are integrated with content management system where the data can be managed and updated. It was important that the management of the website's content is centralized under one admin CMS interface.
