NJAPPA has worked with OGO Sense since 2010 to complete their website redesign project and maintain technical aspects of its website.


NJAPPA faced several issues:
  • The old and static website design was becoming outdated and did not represent NJAPPA in the best possible light.
  • Many website visitors used their phone or tablet to access the website which was not optimized for mobile devices.
  • The website continuity, security, and technical compatibility was at risk because the website used an older version of Joomla CMS.


OGO Sense helped NJAPPA make some of the following improvements:
  • Strategize, envision, and design the new website to better meet needs of its existing members.
  • Implement a clean, modern, responsive, and custom template that corresponds to NJAPPA’s branding.
  • Integrate new or streamline existing functionalities such as online event registration and automated feeds displaying job posts.


As a results of the redesign and technical migration, NJAPPA can:
  • Better meet needs of your target audience which is increasingly using mobile devices.
  • Avoid and minimize website issues by improving security and software compatibility with a technical migration to Joomla 3.
  • Have a more appealing Joomla website that is well designed, customized, and more user friendly to its members.
  • Reuse former website content in an archive on the new website.
