Mandarin Quarterly is a North American Chinese publication for business professionals, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Mandarin Quarterly approached Crux to redesign their site which featured news articles, a distribution map, and other useful information. Additionally, they needed new functionality including; a business directory, events listings, and an event ticket purchasing system. They also had the unique need to have multiple sites for each city that the publication is local in, and the ability to grow with them as they add new cities.
Crux delivered a website that was capable of very complex front end systems that are easily managed using the back end of the content management system. Their new website features a full service directory listing that includes everything from local gyms to stadiums. It also includes an extensive event system to list all events going on in the area and includes the capability to sell and deliver e-tickets for events. In addition to all of this, Crux implemented a system in which Mandarin Quarterly can clone a site with the click of a button to create a new website for each new city with all the same functionality already available.
