Goals / Objectives / Requirements

The owner of DiningInfo.ca approached us with an idea – Build an online Directory of all the restaurants that were located in the Province of Newfoundland.

From a strategic point, it was a very good idea, as no such directory existed at that time.

Our needs assessment:

  1. use a commercially available directory software to handle the inner workings of the site such as account management & category organization.
  2. customize the graphics & layout of the software to give a look and feel that would be appealing to both their viewers and the restaurant owners.
  3. custom program any functionality that was lacking in the pre-packaged software solution


To increase the speed of deployment, as well as keeping costs down we licensed a commercially available directory engine. This software was deployed in a few hours. This allowed our client to add listings for the restaurants while we worked on the overall layout & design of the site, which shortened the development time significantly.
