New EACOMM website with AI-powered chatbot

EACOMM Corporation launches its new website for 2023. The website is the 9th iteration of eacomm.com since 2001 and features our new Chatbot: Chaital (Chat AI Technology with Advanced Language). Chaital is powered by OpenAI and is trained to address initial queries about EACOMM corporation and direct these queries to the appropriate people.

The website has much more animation, graphics and videos than the past decade’s iterations of EACOMM and brings back and showcases our two decades of leadership in Interactive Multimedia. For past versions of our website, check out Archive.org

Version 1 of EACOMM was a 10 page plain HTML website deployed in 2001.

Version 2 Classic Black” (2002-2003)

Featured a number of online forms developed in PHP and written to MySQL database. However, the main site content remained mostly HTML-based with some small flash animation elements. Version two also included our first efforts in Search Engine

Version 3 “United Colors of EACOMM” (2003-2005)

Featured a lively intro page and heavily SEO’d content. Some content was already content managed during the latter part of this version’s existence. Version 3 was also the first site hosted outside of EACOMM’s in-house web server for increased accessibility from the US/Europe.

Version 4 “The Tree House” (2005-2008)

This website was the first EACOMM website to fully utilize DO-CMS for content management and was heavy on Flash Animation. It features original artwork from Visual Artist Robert Deniega. Further additions to the site include this Blog website, a Japanese Version of the Website, and other division sub-sites.

Version 5 “Film Noir” (2008-2012)

This website features detailed interactive scenery with a retro, film-noir look developed in Flash. The website is managed through the latest version of EACOMM’s Dynamic Online Content Management System which features new features such as allowing for editing of Flash content as well as integration with Google’s Application suite. The site’s use of CSS 2.0 would also allow us to change the layout much more often and offer different layouts simultaneously in the future. The site is also designed to showcase the entire skill set of EACOMM Corporation from Interactive Multimedia and Animation as seen with the various Flash scenes, to High-end Web Programming as showcased in the various dynamic content and interactive forms.

Version 6 “Pop-Art” (2012-2014)

This version of the website pays homage to 50’s-60’s pop-art. The current site is running the beta version of DO-CMS version 4, the first complete rewrite of the DO-CMS engine. In this website, we have decided to forgo flash animation in favor of javascript/jquery/html5 to coincide with the trend in mobile and tablet web browsing. The site is also tightly integrated with Facebook (particularly the photo albums) and other social networking websites.

Version 7 “Pixel Art” (2014-2017)

While we have been deploying responsive websites for our clients for the past 2 years, it is only in 2014 that we finally had the time to convert our own site to a fully responsive design. This is in reaction to the ever-increasing number of website visitors that are smartphone and tablet users. As with our past websites, the site has a central “theme” that plays tribute to 1980s PC pixel isometric art. The site also shows a transition to a more mature “corporate look”, embracing the fact that EACOMM is no longer a new start-up set up by fresh grads in their twenties, but an established corporation led by a highly experienced group of entrepreneurs and professional managers.

Version 8 “Video Time-lapse” (2017-2020)

A minor redesign of version 7, this site’s banner is a timelapse video of Eastwood Cyberpark, EACOMM’s home since its inception in 2001.

Version 9 “Vector Animations” (2020-2022)

After using WordPress to power EACOMM.com for 6 years, this website marks the release and use of DO-CMS Version 5. DO-CMS Version 5 is a headless CMS and the site’s front-end is completely independent of its backend, giving more freedom to our graphic artists to design the frontend site. Meant to usher in EACOMM’s 20th anniversary, it also coincides with the CoVid Pandemic and EACOMM’s transition to the “new normal.”

Version 10 “AI Tagcloud” (2023-)

Version 10’s intro banner is a tag cloud of EACOMM’s products and services. This site, still powered by the same DO-CMS backend of Version 9, showcases more animation, interactivity, and EACOMM’s AI Chatbot: Aica.
