Givology Revolutionizes Education Support with a New WordPress Website

Givology has been active in supporting the students through different projects. And, since the organization is aimed at supporting and promoting education opportunities for children in need, it needed a clear, engaging, and aesthetic WordPress platform.

The aim incorporated the highest possible usability for both the Donor and the Student so that the site can be navigated, used to contribute, and engaged with without undue stress. This innovative platform was designed and developed by Techtic Solutions, one of the leading companies in digital product design and development.

Capitalizing on its competency in web development and user experience/user interface design, Techtic Solutions developed a new WordPress website that is in a position to capture the current trend of web design and the requirements of the end-users.

Techtic’s Contribution/ Features

Custom WordPress Theme

Our work included creating a new theme considering the website of Givology; our reference designs were made on Figma so as to be optimizable with the target devices which include the desktops, the laptops, and the mobiles. This allowed for a brand image to be created and maintained across all platforms to suit Givology’s needs and give students a user-friendly platform to work with.

Problem

Prior to the major development, the problems that prevented Givology from fulfilling its role of supporting students and projects were as follows – The site was developed a few years back and thus had no features of a modern website, the structure of the site was clumsy which was causing difficulty to the users to navigate the site. Key problems included:

Outdated Design: The old website was unattractive with a poor design that has not been modified based on current fashion in web designs. This did not only influence the appearance but also the functionality since the users were having a hard time trying to locate the contents or the enablement of donating.

Navigation Challenges: The previous menu structure lacked usability, and users felt that they could not find the functions they needed mostly because they were placed under the wrong category. It should be noted that likely significant parts of the site, including the donation pages, community information, and media content were not clearly placed.

Limited Functionality: The website was also missing some key functionalities like the feature that would allow a visitor to do an advanced search or post dynamic content, and, of course, an efficient way of managing donations. This restricted the movement of the site to meet and attract the consumers and transform them into customers/donors.

Poor Mobile Responsiveness: One of the issues that arose was that despite the site being visited by a growing number of mobile users it did not have a responsive design so people using mobile devices had a less satisfactory experience. It continued to reduce user activity and their level of satisfaction with the services being offered.

Inefficient Content Management: The back end of the website was not accessible to the users and the functionality of the site was not satisfactory, which made the task of administration like updating the content or managing the site a cumbersome task. This, in a way, caused the information being displayed to be out of date, making the overall content of the website and its functions less credible and efficient.

These problems have altogether affected Givology’s functionality and its mission to strive toward its overall goals by requiring a complete redesign to make the site more friendly and useful for donors.

Challenges

Creating the new Givology WordPress website required designing and coding a new, custom theme that supports marketing and organizing the website for easy navigation and search. The major challenges were adding a multilevel hierarchy of navigation, incorporating dynamic content, and working on an enhanced search tool with autocomplete capability. Also, the effective management of the donation process and the development of a content management system (CMS) were challenging and required a lot of planning and work.

There were challenges such as having fully mobile responsive websites, integrating various third-party plugins as well as ensuring that users’ data is secure. However, thanks to the efforts of Techtic Solutions, they have completed the website, which has a good UX/UI design and corresponds to Givology’s goals and objectives, allowing it to help students and projects efficiently.

Result

With the new Givology WordPress website, overall interaction and user satisfaction have been notably enhanced. The custom theme and the use of responsive design significantly enhance users’ ability to navigate through the site and get to the necessary information. The improved navigation bar and added search functions allow users to easily locate and contribute to projects and students, resulting in increased participation.

The dynamic content integration has helped users stay engaged and active, while the efficient donation management system has significantly increased the number of completed donations and reduced the number of abandoned donations. The highly intuitive nature of the CMS enables Givology’s administrators to update content frequently, ensuring that the website remains fresh and engaging. Altogether, the changes to the website have improved Givology’s online identity, making it easier to bring happiness and help to students and projects.
