Challenges

By the time of the request, ApartDirect already ran their digital business successfully, but they set a list of new goals to widen their project marketing impact. The Customer required new digital solutions to meet them.

After a primary discussion with UKAD, they specified their view into a scope of challenges for our software team:

Facelift of an existing website with a new design, in order to meet up-to-date digital standards:

  • Increase website usability;
  • Add mobile website version;
  • Update CMS system;
  • Search Engine Optimisation solutions;

Upgrade website functionality:

  • FAQ section;
  • Live support chat;
  • Booking for business clients option;
  • Add English website domain;

Collaboration with a Customer was an ultimate experience and a great team-work. A family of company owners proactively participated in the process of creating new design sketches as they wanted to shape the new digital look of the project to reflect their philosophy, view and the company values in the best way. It was a creative and challenging task to design a layout from handwriting wireframes, but both UKAD development team and the Clients contributed the best of their efforts and enjoyed the work.

Solutions

This project was also special for us because it was our first project using Umbraco Cloud Service (SaaS). We found the technology quite helpful and beneficial for both users and developers,

  • It is comfortable to move transfer a content and website structure from the local environment to live and back;
  • All functionality is available out of the box. A third-party plugin is not required to transfer changes;

Our development team also created:

  • Seo-semantic mark-up;
  • Added second website language version on the separate domain;
  • Multiplied the link weigh;
  • Seo-integration with social networks;
  • Increased website performance;
  • Added reviews section;
