Crafting a new web presence for a global software solutions and IT consultancy

Working with Phoenix Business Solutions

Phoenix is a global, award-winning provider of software solutions and IT consultancy for professional services firms.

Business challenge

Phoenix wanted to plan a new online presence to showcase their solutions, services and products in a more concise and engaging way.

The primary goal of the new website was to provide clients and potential customers with a stronger understanding of the services Phoenix offer whilst driving data capture. In the past, the information architecture of their products and services became lost in complex content structures that were difficult to navigate. The site had also become dated, was non responsive and did not position Phoenix as a global leader within its industry.

Our approach

Our design team collaborated closely with Phoenix on a number of interviews, wireframes and mock-ups, giving them valuable insight, which shaped our approach to creating an experience that would engage its key audiences.

We helped Phoenix understand its content requirements for the new website and plan accordingly. Creating a modular set of design components not only worked well from a responsive point of view but also provided content editors access to a set of site-wide modules that can be made use of when publishing new content.

Finally we integrated Phoenix’s new templates with our preferred open-source CMS, Umbraco. We felt Umbraco offered the best solution for seamless template integration and streamlined content editing experience. Our responsive templates were also a perfect fit for Umbraco’s new grid functionality that offers editors the ability to build pages in blocks as opposed to using forms, providing an enhanced experience for content editors.

The outcome

Since the launch of the site, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Along with the new design, the new content structure makes it easier for each targeted audience to find relevant information about Phoenix’s services, solutions and products.

Working with Umbraco CMS, content editors are now able to create and maintain content with ease and speed, enabling them to focus on communicating with their target audiences and concentrate on driving more traffic and leads.
