We are very pleased to announce the success of our latest development project for our client - the leading learning grid provider Yorkshire and Humber Grid for Learning (YHGfL).
This client has a massive web legacy infrastructure and thousands of regional and national users using more than one website so they made the decision to invest in simplifying down to one user name and password.
We have used a technology called LDAP to allow users to register on the main website and move across to other YHGfL sites using the same username and password.
It’s a sophisticated answer to a simple problem - multiple log ins and passwords. It should make a huge difference to their users’ experience.
Thanks to great project collaboration and time management on both sides, this project was completed on time, on budget and worked first time.
This is what our client Steve Turnbull (YHGFL’s Project Manager) said:
“Simplified Sign-On is a first step for YHGfL towards a fully integrated Single Sign-On. This project was crucial in making our website, running on the eZ Publish platform, ‘talk’ to our LDAP service. The project to integrate eZ Publish with our LDAP system in this way went very smoothly thanks to the close partnership working between EAB and ourselves“

Our home improvement and construction client Herts Bifold Doors is delighted with a bespoke extension we created for their website: an online quote generator for their construction trade clientele to specify bifold doors for their customers and get accurate cost estimates. It also generates sales leads that are easy for HBD sales staff to follow.
The quote engine gives precise instructions on measurements and options and an easy selection interface. The quote is delivered to the trade customer’s inbox .
The flexible eZ Publish CMS powering the Herts Bifold Doors website allows websites to evolve with ever-changing business requirements: in this case a new "trade" section was added to complement their consumer business website.
HBD are a thriving small business in St Albans that trust EAB as their web partner to devise technical solutions to fuel their business growth. Find out more about our services to local businesses.
