Custom Chamber Members Management System

Whistler Chamber of Commerce approached Mountain Interactive with the idea of building a new section integrated into their existing website.

The section was the Whistler Spirit Pass Program, used to ensure Whistler businesses and their employees understand the Whistler Services Philosophy. The program was designed around an annual session that all members' employees are encouraged to attend about essential Whistler customer service. Each member's employee that attends the session is eligble for a discounted Whistler Blackcomb season's pass.

The requirements were as follows:

Client:

  • Applicants are to register via online form.
  • Applicants are categorized by different "Levels" based on how long they have been a Whistler resident.
  • Ability to select their employer from a list of a companies participating in the Spirit Pass Program.
  • Applicants must be able to re-apply every year going forward.

Client Administrator (Company Representitive):

  • Approve/Deny clients that register for their company
  • View active employee
  • View deactivated employees

System Administrator:

  • Search for all registrations
  • Edit all registrations
  • View attendance from Sessions
  • View schedule of Sessions and edit dates and locations

With this clear scope, Mountain Interactive was able to develop a system that was easy to learn, and scalable for many future years of use.

The Spirit Program tied in nicely with the existing Joomla CMS that is running WhistlerChamber.com as we tried to minimize the number of new tools that Whistler employees had to learn.

The Spirit Program has been running on the Whistler Chamber website since 2007, and has been upgraded to include new features many times since then.
