UNFPA - Road To Adulthood
UNFPA Sri Lanka together with the University grants commission sought to create a platform for a broader discussion on a matter labelled ‘taboo’ across generations, in Sri Lanka. Over 50% of Sri Lanka’s youth are unaware of sexual and reproductive health issues and curious minds are restrained due to cultural and religious norms, which has resulted in some alarming consequences. This could vary from a myriad of crimes revolving around sexual frustration to burdening the country’s already unstable economy to tackle a range of related healthcare problems. As a progressive first step in managing this situation the University Grants Commission along with the UNFPA and Y-Peer introduces an online platform for the youth of Sri Lanka, “Road to adulthood”.
Floorplan & Exhibitor Management Portal - Sri Lanka Institute of Architects
The "Architect", is the Sri Lanka's longest running and leading construction exhibition and tradeshow. Organized annually by the Sri Lanka Institute of Architects (SLIA), it is a marque events in the Colombo event calendar, with tens of thousands of attendees flocking over the course of the three days. Over the past five years, due to a rapidly increasing number of exhibitors seeking a presence at the exhibition, the SLIA has been met with the number of difficulties in managing exhibitors and floor space. Since the spaces are booked manually, the company had to take on a number of new staff, which has driven up costs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much does a typical website cost
Web development costs can greatly vary depending on the requirement. Basic sites can start from around USD 400 upwards. Think in terms of features, for instance do you need a shopping cart facility, or a content management system to update the website regularly; the more features that go into a site, the higher the costs will be. Talk to one of our consultants, who will analyse your exact need, and then advise you on the various development options that would suit your business.
Q. What is better a mobile website, or a mobile app?
This really depends on the goals that you are trying to achieve and demographics you are trying to reach. Mobile apps are way more interactive than mobile websites, they also enable you to directly communicate with your users via push notifications. However if you are trying to reach a wider audience, a mobile website offers an advantage as it does not have to be installed in a user’s phone. In certain cases you might need to have both a website and an mobile app, a strategy that is increasingly adopted by businesses.
Q. How long does it take to develop a website?
Similar to development costs, this too largely depends on the features/design elements involved. A basic site can be up and running within two weeks, but a more complex site, such as an ecommerce store, can take up to twice that time.
Q. How will I manage content on my new website?
If your website needs to be regularly updated, which is the case in ecommerce sites, news websites, hotel websites etc., we will provide a web based content management system (CMS). Typically based on either the WordPress or Drupal platforms, the CMS will have very intuitive and user-friendly interfaces, enabling easy content management.
Q. Are there ongoing costs after a website is developed?
Web development costs can greatly vary depending on the requirement. Talk to one of our consultants, who will analyze your exact need, and then advise you on the various development options that would suit your business.
