Challenge

WORLD TRADE CENTERS ASSOCIATION (WTCA) WAS LOOKING TO BUILD A COMPREHENSIVE WEB PORTAL THAT INCREASED AWARENESS ABOUT ITS GLOBAL MISSION.

WTCA also wanted to provide its membership community with a user-friendly platform for effective communication. At the time, the World Trade Centers Association was working with several technology vendors and was leveraging a number of technologies, which made it increasingly difficult for the organization to do the following:

Provide the desired value to its users

Provide reliable networking features for members of the association

The World Trade Centers Association knew they needed more than just a technology provider — they needed a technology partner to take the lead on both digital strategy and execution. They also needed a software solutions team that could consolidate different applications and technologies into a unified portal so members all over the world could transmit and receive critical information in a timely manner.

After a rigorous vendor research and selection process, World Trade Centers Association found Asahi Technologies the best suited for the task at hand and moved ahead with a pilot project.

Solution

After a successful pilot project, we worked closely with all stakeholders and carefully considered each of the World Trade Centers Association’s business goals and the scope of the platform requirements before building various software solutions; from useful value-add tools for World Trade Centers Association members like a forum to promote discussion, to the complex service request management application designed to increase accountability between members trying to scheduling events or missions with trade centers around the world.

Results

Asahi Technologies created an online platform that facilitated IMPECCABLE SERVICE REQUEST MANAGEMENT.

The solution we built also increased co-operation among members, staff and administrators and improved accountability among World Trade Centers Association members.

The custom corporate portal was built using Ruby on Rails which easily integrated into existing client applications and provided the scalability required for additional features and applications in the future.

We successfully implemented a digital solution, which improved member communication while also consolidating technologies and applications in turn reducing hosting costs of servers. As a result, World Trade Centers Association chose Asahi Technologies as the go-to technology partner for all their portal and other web development needs.
