The European Society of Contact Dermatitis (ESCD
) is a membership organisation for dermatologists within Europe. Its purpose is to promote the study and knowledge of contact dermatitis, reduce occupational risks on skin health and improve patients’ lives. Membership benefits include access to the members’ directory, meetings, research papers published on the journal ‘Contact Dermatitis’
and ESCD's bi-annual congress.
ESCD was manually processing bank transfers for annual membership renewals which were time-consuming. They urgently needed an online payment system to process applications more efficiently.
Doublesided was commissioned to redesign ESCD’s website with these functionalities and modernise its appearance. We built a membership system and a subscription-based model to accept online payments annually. This included email reminders and locks content for non-members.
Working with Wiley
, we integrated their paywall to allow registered ESCD members to unlock access to the website’s journal. A prominent ‘Read journal’ button in the navigation provides quick access.
