We’ve been working with Simon from Bali Food Safari since we were introduced to work on the Baby Blue Baby Green charity website project. Since then, Simon has developed a unique concept for delivering food tours and has launched his first iteration in Bali with Bali Food Safari where groups get picked up from their hotel in style and taken to 4 undisclosed amazing local restaurants for a truly unique dining experience.
The website project we’ve completed for Bali Food Safari was extensive. For the first release we worked with their in-house designer to deliver a beautiful front-end to the website that was simple and easy to use while being highly functional hooking into a booking & ticketing system. In the back-end of the site things started with WordPress as always and then added complex additions like advanced performance optimisations to handle large traffic streams as the company ran news story’s on TV which drove a great deal of traffic to the site. Another noteworthy back-end change include tightened security.
Month to month we also take care of the Bali Food Safari website by performing daily backups, keeping all website software up to date, running monthly security/malware scans on the site, monitor the website’s uptime with SMS alerts and also perform any change requests requested by the company. This free’s up Simon to focus on business development and line up new exciting restaurants and locations.
In June 2014 Simon discussed with us the option of developing a completely custom plugin for the website to handle the order fulfillment of tours and allow his staff to have a streamlined process for taking a booking request, assigning the restaurants the tour will visit and then informing all involved parties of the details of the tour. We launched version 1 of this custom plugin in early August 2014.
