The Moods Group
This is a holding company out of Australia specializing in a range of services such as acupuncture, aroma therapy, massage, etc. This customer has quite a number of sites (at last count there are 10 sites). They have been a customer of ours for many years. We started when their sites were Joomla 1.5. We then migrated them to Joomla 2.5. Now we are migrating them to Joomla 3.x. With each migration, we give them a website makeover adding addition features to help their business. They are extremely focused on marketing and SEO.
Here are the links to their current sites:
Greater West Natural Therapies
Greater West Orthotics
Greater West Physiotherapy
Greater West Work Conditioning
Nepean Physiotherapy Hydrotherapy Center
St Marys Acupuncture
Wetherrill Park Physiotherapy
One of their sites uses a completely customized template. All the other sites are based on a common template that has been customized for their use. Although it may not sound fancy, with the number of companies that they keep adding, using a common template keeps their costs down whenever they add a new company to their portfolio. Duplicate and then change the images, logos, and text for the new company.
When we were first contacted, the few sites they had were running Joomla 1.5. We migrated the sites over to Joomla 2.5 including the custom template. The custom template had quite a bit of programming to include some visual effects. We were able to keep everything looking the same after the migration and they could not be happier. They are also quite excited that we can turn around a new site for them in a short amount of time. And now, we have migrated them to Joomla 3.x.
Many of their sites look the same and that is because we use the same template. Their clients like it since every site looks the same, the navigation is the same, and can find what they are looking for without much trouble.
