Engineers in Canada wear an iron ring on the little finger of their working hand. It's a symbol of their obligation to the highest professional conduct. The ring is presented at ceremonies across the country. In Manitoba, Camp 8 administers and maintains that ritual.
Camp 8 is run by volunteers, mostly Engineers who lead busy lives in addition to their volunteer commitments. That’s why it was a priority to organize and automate tedious processes. Like many of our clients, Camp 8 has specific needs that require very custom solutions.
As graduates of the Faculty of Engineering at University of Manitoba, our co-owners were already familiar with Camp 8’s unique needs. With records dating back to 1922 and ongoing memberships coming in, this site was all about data management and administration.
Trademark Law protects the Iron Ring, including use of its picture. Instead of focusing on the ring, our designers created a visually interesting website using imagery that represents the profession. We were able to package complex data behind a really unique design.
Organizing records and simplifying administrative processes was the top priority for Camp 8. With records dating back to 1922, they were trudging through the evolution of data management. We built a tool to manage their ceremonies and memberships. It facilitates an annual data import to track ceremony attendees. The system will help Camp 8 to keep records organized and updated for years to come.
On the front end, Camp 8 speaks to graduates and guests who want to attend a ceremony. They guide people through the process of getting their ring. Alleviating questions and concerns through clear, concise content saves their volunteers time responding to individual inquiries.
