Baytech Designs Extremely Professional Website for AFR
American Flood Research (AFR) is a Texas-based service provider founded in 1992.
The company conducts high-quality, accurate research into flood zones on the national level. It also offers AVMs, or automated valuations, along with home equity lien insurance, real estate tax services and many more. Highly rated customer service and quality products and services make this a truly astounding company.
AFR needed a website that would help them avoid the many risks that businesses in their sector face, namely their reputation. As a professional services provider, they needed to be able to put
on a trustworthy exterior to their customers. All too often, businesses like theirs would risk collapse because they didn’t seem like they were capable enough. Baytech was called upon to help AFR out by designing a website that would both engage customers and make them believe that AFR had the expertise and services they were looking for.
The solution that Baytech provided to AFR was to completely revamp their website and make it more professional. This would make customers feel safer about the services that they provide, because a website that is professional in nature imparts a sense of security to prospective clients that they would not usually have. A .NET framework was used to build the website, which allowed for capabilities across multiple programming languages. Execution of programs and features were done in a CLR software environment instead of the hardware environment that was present before. In addition to this, DNN (DotNetNuke) was used because of its three-
tier architectural model.
The new .NET framework provided:
- Better UI for interaction with customers
- Increased network communication
- Connected databases
- Algorithmic support
All of this led to a far more streamlined user experience. The DNN content management system implemented by Baytech resulted in:
- 3rd party module support for added functionality
- Customizable site skins
- Compatibility over multiple OS
