The Book Society
The Book Society is a club for professionals in the book trade. Members include publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians and authors and membership is exclusively invite only. The Book Society required a visually simple website that would function as a membership and event management dashboard. The site allows members to pay recurring membership fees and make bookings for society events. Its outwardly simple design hides a numbers of advanced management features behind the scenes.
As well as standard booking facilities the site is also capable of handling a waiting list of members and allows users to select meal courses for themselves and their guests attending society events. All this data is then compiled into detailed reports that site admins and event organisers can download and print to aid with the event management process.
The site also utilises an email notification system to contact members with payment reminders, event changes and regular newsletters. Every aspect of the event system can be managed through the customised dashboard.
