Selling gold and silver online throws up some unique challenges for Atkinsons Bullion. They needed a premium design to reflect the nature of the product, plus a reliable system that offers a secure and accurate purchase process for customers. Ridgeway integrated the Kentico site with the Brightpearl CRM system, Barclaycard’s payment gateway, customer reviews with Trustpilot, and most importantly – live pricing linked to the gold and silver index. Fluctuating prices are protected by failsafe modes, in case the price falls unnaturally high or low, or a customer flags up an issue. Ridgeway’s Kentico Ecommerce Accelerator saved time and money during the build, while allowing for extra features and discounts integral to the sales strategy. The site’s new design and intuitive purchase process has led customers to leave glowing feedback, praising it as “well implemented” and a “great improvement”.

Colours of Ostrava is well-positioned among European music festivals for its miscellaneous program and unique atmosphere, located in the impressive post-industrial Dolní Vítkovice area of Ostrava. Over 43,000 people attended Colours of Ostrava in 2015. The aim of the project was to create a modern-looking, comprehensive website that would provide visitors and fans of the festival with all necessary information. It was crucial not only to share information about artists, but also to share practical information about the area, accommodations, and transport. One feature added to the site by Digital Wizards was Colourspedia, a collection of facts and figures about previous years’ festivals, dating back to the very first festival in 2002. To ensure a seamless visitors’ journey, the site is based on a responsive design and uses multilingual functionality – the site can be read in Czech, English, and Polish.

Weatherbys is a family company with a rich heritage spanning more than 200 years. Today, it is a diverse organisation offering private banking and a range of financial services, as well providing the central administrative support for British horseracing, on behalf of the British Horseracing Authority and a range of supporting services. As part of refreshing the Weatherbys brand, MMT Digital built a new website that brought together the different strands of the business into a single consolidated web presence. Improving the user experience and transforming the journey through the variety of services on offer was a critical objective, requiring close collaboration and a genuine partnership to achieve this within a challenging timescale. Weatherbys is extremely pleased with the new site, which is already attracting increased visitor numbers and extended time on-site.

Revera is a leading owner, operator, and investor in the senior living sector, and owns or operates more than 500 properties across the US, UK, and Canada. The website update was implemented to make the page responsive, to consolidate content, and to compact the sitemap. In addition, each of the nearly 200 existing location microsites would have its sitemap flattened and instead be showcased in a one-page layout. The microsite template needed to be consistent in layout but also provide functionality and potential for the microsite page to scale and grow. The final product’s mobile-optimized layout and user experience helped increase Revera’s website operation conversions by 106% in the first 3 months, compared to the previous years’ numbers. Revera’s content editors now have the ability to generate topic-specific content, and separate the design and content layers to ensure consistency of the site’s overall presentation.

Classic Holidays is Australasia’s largest privately owned resort and club management company. The Steps to Sales (S2S) project was proposed to digitize Classic Holidays and streamline the use of prospect and customer data between systems, websites, and the business. As many of Kentico EMS’s features were used as possible, such as Content Editing, Segmentation, Personalization, and Marketing Automation. Data sharing and contact profile capabilities allowed for responses to prospects or customers, and previous interactions with Classic Holidays generated the creation of personalized content. S2S utilized Microsoft Azure virtual servers and Microsoft virtual databases. Thanks to the Kentico solution, resources can be adjusted easily to suit any situation.

GX Group needed a new, consolidated website with simpler navigation to clearly showcase their services and products as well as to attract new customers. It was necessary to change the branding and content to reflect the company’s business trajectory and respond to the increase in mobile users. A site that would be easy for the client to update on a regular basis to support ongoing SEO work was key. Within weeks of the site going live, GX Group received a new business enquiry that developed into a £400,000 project. Kentico EMS’s flexibility, scalability, reliability, security, and a wealth of other features provided an intelligent marketing approach, and the site continues to help GX Group raise their profile, build brand recognition, and generates ongoing valuable new business leads.

Located in the unique Two Rocks suburb in Perth, Australia, The Reef is a private property developer. The goal in an upgrade was “to develop a clear, concise, easy-to-navigate website that creates interest, encourages interaction, a sense of community, and ultimately results in enquiries and registrations.” The client required a solution that would display the current availability of The Reef’s lots in real time, and would enable end users to change the status of the lots from the CMS. A House and Land module was required for showing different types of houses that could be built on individual lots. It was able to be updated and managed by end users. The new website has seen a steady stream of enquiries, which are in line with the client’s expectations. The Site Plan module has enabled end users to actively update the availability in real time when new lots are released and existing ones sold using an easy-to-use CMS.

The Emphysema Physician Portal is a medical data gathering website used to understand the prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a collection of lung diseases that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. The site aims to raise awareness of this often underdiagnosed disease. Anonymous patient medical data is entered by physicians within a secure area. Based on the medical data, an algorithm analyzes the results and highlights the patients that seem to be good candidates for endobronchial interventions. The data gathering project is currently being piloted by a limited number of pulmonology practices in Germany. The intention of a successful completion of this pilot is to extend the project to additional territories and languages. Upon completion of the project, the resulting data may help develop epidemiological publications. The site is sponsored by PneumRx, Inc., a BTG International group company.

For GPT, the old sites felt dated and provided an inconsistent user experience. The project objective was twofold. First, GPT needed a design for each property that was modern, dynamic, and flexible enough to incorporate localized branding. Second, GPT wanted a responsive, scalable platform with the ability to copy and manipulate moving widgets and elements, producing highly optimized and individualized customer experiences for each of the 14 assets. Adrenalin Media achieved this through a number of UI and CSS techniques that presents the content in a more engaging manner. Bounce rates are down by an average of 30% across the properties, and content consumption and rich-media engagement indicators are exceeding expectations. The wide-form design is a departure from the traditional content-heavy office property sites, and a responsive design layout ensures the most optimal experience across different devices and resolutions.
