Project Goals

BizStream successfully achieved the comprehensive overhaul and modernization of LMC’s online presence. The project involved rebuilding and enhancing both the public site (lmc.net) and the authenticated member area (lmc.net/members) into a unified application using .Net and Kentico Xperience.

Other Goals included:

  • Deploy a scalable Microsoft Azure-based solution to accommodate the needs of LMC’s 1,400 member organizations nationwide.
  • Ensure deep integration with on-premise data, applications, and authorization systems.
  • Develop the solution using Kentico 11.0 EMS and the ASP.NET MVC methodology for upgradability.
  • Enhance application performance, emphasizing fast information retrieval for lists, search, and filters.
  • Provide an intuitive user experience, particularly focusing on seamless navigation.
  • Deliver a rich, product-centric search experience for logged-in dealers.
  • Ensure full responsiveness on mobile devices.
  • Achieve ADA Compliance with WCAG 2.0 AA Accessibility standards.
  • Implement personalized role-based views for Owners, Buyers, and Accounting.

Results

Outcomes of the LMC.net project have been highly positive, garnering enthusiasm from both LMC staff and the Dealer Network. The new platform enables Dealers to access the site and LMC services seamlessly on mobile devices, a capability previously unavailable. The overall site speed and performance have seen a significant boost, particularly benefiting Dealers outside the US East Coast.

After having Kentico perform some work for us, we asked them to recommend a partner with which to continue working on our site. Kentico recommended three companies. Through the interview process, I got the best feeling about BizStream. It turned out to be the right choice for us.

We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the project. BizStream’s work is impressive, especially knowing how challenging it can be to work with someone else’s existing code. BizStream ‘went above and beyond,’ delivering something to the end user.

I would definitely encourage others to go with BizStream for development work, especially Kentico development. I was super impressed with how knowledgeable Brian [McKeiver] is and how closely BizStream works with Kentico. BizStream support was also top notch. Brian was very responsive, as was the support team.
