The Kinectrics website was extremely outdated in appearance, structure and presentation of content. The business needed to re-engineer the site to better reflect the mission of Kinectrics and incorporate the latest web technologies to deliver information about its diverse services.
- Over 100 services were structured by internal organizational departments
- Interface design was outdated
- Training programs and registrations were administered manually
- No content management tools were used
Kinectrics selected V51 Consulting based on our depth of expertise with SharePoint and our user experience capabilities. Using our proven methodology the site was redesigned and developed against a strict schedule of 3 months. The solution included:
- Solution Search – We introduced a faceted navigation search tool to help customers quickly navigate over 100 solution offerings
- Ajax Site Search – An AJAX search function provides targeted results from the sites 3 main content types (Solutions, Case Studies, and Training Courses)
- EventBrite Integration – A training site was configured to manage over 300 classes annually and integrated with EventBrite – a SaaS solution for event registration and online payments
- Solution Templates – The core of the site is built around Kinectrics’ solution template that feature photos, key contacts, and calls to action to generate new business leads
We were able to design, develop and deploy the website within an 120 days.
