Sealy Posturepedic Training Software

Learning Management System ( LMS )

Sealy Training evolved over many years to become a part of Sealy’s business culture and gave fundamental support for their retail outlets. Sealyspirit.com holds a record of all employees, events, news and some history going back over 100 years, while Sealytraining.com provides invaluable training for their retail outlets to sell their 1st class bedding with the confidence of knowing what their products are all about.

Cloudology, who is now merged with Gecko Media, built these sites for BFJ Media who was contracted by Dolphin Creative who were contracted by Sealy Posturepedic Australia. Due to the data being internal only we are limited by what screenshots we can show.

The biggest lesson we learnt was not to allow a client to push us for fast production when large scale briefs are not fully scoped. Pulling in additional resources to finish faster is not as good as a small team that know their own code, and can therefore, complete the task at hand with cleaner coding, just a little more time is required. This was a big lesson in business management for us, regardless, the Sealy sites were a great experience and we are proud to have contributed to an outstanding Australian company over the last 4 years.

The Challenge

The big decision to make was whether Sealy Training should be built with the flexibility of using the Laravel PHP Framework or whether we stick with WordPress and over come it’s limitations.

We decided to go with WordPress so the staff at Dolphin Creative would be able to content manage the site using the same interface they were used to using with Sealy Spirit.

Getting WordPress to run a large scale custom coded Learning Management System had limitations that we faced due to WordPress having it’s own standards and sometimes being inflexible in how it can be configured. The final result was a WordPress Multi-site to handle multiple countries.
