Retro Portfolio: My Flex Blue

Shortly after the completion of the My IC Blue project for Michigan Group Benefits, they came to O6 again for a sister project, My Flex Blue.

The new project was to start with a clone of the My IC Blue site but update the content for a new product and make an update to the partner referrer system that was developed for My IC Blue.

The My IC Blue partner referrer system was updated to allow for the option of assigning specific vendor codes to each partner site. This allows for more human-readable codes when necessary and for vendor codes to be identical between My IC Blue and My Flex Blue, without forcing the two sites to share a database (something that would have been difficult with their hosting).

The My IC Blue site template was virtually untouched in making the My Flex Blue site, with only one graphic in the header needing to be updated. The content for the site was all provided by Michigan Group Benefits and was easily integrated into the existing information architecture.

As with My IC Blue a handful of small PDF changes were also completed.

The above text and images were copied directly from the portfolio of my former development company, O6 Web Services, as I imported it over to this blog. It was not updated for re-publishing. This project launched in May 2007.
