using CakePHP, a rapid application development (RAD) framework, which enabled
quicker visualization of the end-user design, allowing the client to add
valuable inputs to improve usability. The resulting site drives revenue to
worthwhile causes, is easily scalable to handle 20,000 orders a day, provides
content management of pages, allows users to customize templates and connects to
the non-profits' back-office systems as well as the external order fulfillment
