Nutritional Program with Menu Planner & Automated Shopping List

Launched in 2018, Eating4Vitality first started with the simple but powerful question – “What can we do to make it easier for people to eat healthily so they can enjoy more vitality?”. Since then, founders Sue and Rod have combined their expertise in nutrition, science, writing and photography to start Eating4Vitality. A company dedicated to encouraging people to eat healthily by giving them a comprehensive nutritional program to guide them throughout their journey.

 

A key challenge was to deliver a web based platform where people can start their journey and have tools to personalise and manage their meal plans and nutritional program. The platform needed to deliver a vast range of content such as recipes in a way that was effortless and easy for users to access and interact with it. The team wanted to achieve this in order to enhance the user experience and also empower their community to be self sufficient and to take control of their lifestyle.

Testimonial

From Day one, the Intergy team has really looked after us. 

Our original concept changed significantly from what we visualized in the early days, which meant numerous additions and changes made by us as the site evolved into the most comprehensive healthy dietary program available worldwide.We set some tasks that we thought may have been unachievable for the programmers, however they patiently worked through the issues and always came up with the goods. One of the reasons we went with Intergy was because they have back-up staff who are across our project, which meant we would not be reliant on one person.They have never let us down.

Our project managers are first class.We call them our interpreters (between nerd and human talk).We’ve got to know many of the staff and consider Intergy a division of our business.Apart from building a complex website, it’s also about building relationships, and that’s where Intergy shines.They might be over 1000 kms away, yet they keep in close contact and have a genuine interest in our business and what we do.

Intergy = Integrity.

Recipe Slideshows

Slideshows for recipes with captions were considered the best format for viewers. Intergy developed a customized format, suited to all devices. Every recipe is photographed step-by-step with captions to make it easy to follow. Novice cooks can be transformed into masters. The slideshows allow the user to scan through the recipe procedures quickly for an overview, or alternatively, take time to follow each step. Recipes are also presented the traditional way, and ingredients (either metric of imperial) can be instantly altered according to the number of serves required. 

Subscription Management Module

Handling multiple subscriptions is not always an easy task and automation goes a long way towards streamlining this process. The site features an integrated subscription management module which enables the automation and easy handling of subscriptions in real-time. This frees up more time for the Eating4Vitality team to focus on other areas of their business to grow and expand.
