Case Study: The Irish Cleanroom Society
The Irish Cleanroom Society (ICS) is a not for profit membership subscription based organisation supporting the cleanroom community in Ireland.
It was established in 1998 by professionals involved in various sectors of the cleanroom industry to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and working practices and a support network for companies involved in cleanroom technology and contamination control.
Their main focus is to offer better knowledge and awareness of technology to professionals in semi-conductor, medical technology, pharmaceutical, healthcare, and food sectors.
The ICS needed a website with a members' area that they could update themselves alongside the whole management of members. As they organise events regularly, they would use a credit card machine to take payments over the phone, which raised security concerns.
Their members’ area had to be restricted to paid members. It would have to give access to past seminar papers in electronic format.
Wandsoft designed a website that clearly explained who the ICS are and what they want to achieve. They can manage the website themselves and also create events that their members can register for online rather than over the phone.
The ICS are now using the Stripe payment gateway. This allowed them to avoid using a credit card machine and reduced their banking fees. This reduced expenses, saved them a lot of time and improved security.
As their administrative work can be completed in one place and is integrated together, they now save a lot of time by working on one platform.
