Bromley Youth Music Trust website

www.bymt.co.uk

Completely re-designed through late 2014 and launched in 2015, the new Bromley Youth Music Trust website is the fourth version we have produced for the organisation and is a radical design departure from its predecessor. The new BYMT website is fully responsive, meaning its functions well on all screen sizes from large desktop computers down to smartphones.

A back-end content management system allows staff at BYMT to control many aspects of the site such as:

  • News
  • Events
  • Features
  • Ensembles
  • Video
  • Music courses
  • Products
  • Downloads

All of this is integrated into the site and on various pages. For example, each of the six department pages has its own news and events sections that only show items relevant to that department.

News items are automatically posted to BYMT's Facebook page so that they don't have to duplicate the effort and enter the information twice. And as of 2015, reminders for upcoming events are also posted to Facebook automatically.

In this version of the site we have also added a new feature - the online shop. There's more information about this below. This was integrated into Sagepay to take payments online.

There is also a password-protected teachers’ page where BYMT's staff and tutors can log in to download documentation.

Tech.

The latest version of BYMT's site incorporates an online shop which is integrated into Sagepay in order to take payments online. The payment process was more complex than usual because as well as being able to buy merchandise, users of the site can also sign up for music courses, purchase a subscription to the BYMT network, make donations and pay invoices received from BYMT.

The ability to sign up for courses and pay invoices online have both proved particularly popular with busy parents. More importantly, it has freed up BYMT office staff who previously had to deal with credit card and cheque payments at the reception desk.

As we always do with Sagepay (and any payment provider) the payment pages were fully customised so that they look as close as possible to the design of the BYMT site thus giving shoppers more confidence when making a payment.

In their own words...


We have been working with Novamedia since 1999 and have always found them to be trustworthy, speedy and efficient so when it came to redesigning and rebuilding the original website we had no hesitation in asking Dave and Robert to do it. They really took the time to listen and understand our needs and made many helpful cost-effective suggestions. The new site looks great and is just what we wanted. Thank you for making it so easy and for your continued patience, efficiency and great customer care. BYMT values its long association with you and is looking forward to continuing this relationship for many years to come.
