Twinings have provided tea enthusiasts with the finest products for over 300 years – making them one of Britain’s most trusted brands.
They wanted a responsive e-commerce site that would provide both trade and consumers a secure way to pay online while delivering a personalised user journey. To make sure that Twinings’ strong e-commerce vision wasn’t compromised, Ridgeway worked with Kentico to define requirements for Kentico 8.1, as the site is built on it. Kentico’s personalisation and automation modules are also used to give the user a personalised journey and SAP and MetaPack are communicated with it for ruthless efficiency. Although initially launched for the UK and Ireland, the site is designed to support a low-cost global rollout.

Implemented by diamond:dogs group
Austria
Kentico Gold Partner

The Austrian company Philoro Edelmetall GmbH deals in precious metals and operates multiple branches in Central Europe as well as several localized Online Shops. Its customers include banks, financial advisors, foundations and private customers.
The main goal was to facilitate the online trade with high-value metals mostly in the form of coins and bars. With the redesign of philoro.com and the relaunch with Kentico 7, the aim was not only to create an appealing and user-friendly layout, but mostly to increase sales by providing live data and improving the customer journey. The main objective of the project was to consolidate all of Philoro’s national websites and online stores to a central platform that would represent a unified corporate image and meet local and global requirements in an optimal way.
The main focus lied on the e-commerce functionalities and integration of live trading data provided by Xignite (precious metal exchange rates), BörseGo (USD-EUR exchange rates, precious metal exchange rates backup) and OlsenData (EUR-CHF exchange rates).

Implemented by Wakefly
USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Morgan CODA is a unique team of clothiers, creative designers, and technology experts that aim to bring high quality custom-tailored clothes to their clients via an online retail store.

They also needed the site to integrate with their manufacturers ordering system for faster order fulfillment. The last thing they were looking for was a responsive site, to give all customers on all devices the same experience.

The Morgan CODA site launched in September of 2014 and sales have steadily increased over the past few months. Morgan CODA has continued to raise capital and is planning on opening a brick in mortar store in NYC in 2015.

Santa Clara County Library District
Santa Clara County Library District
Implemented by PMC
USA
Kentico Gold Partner

The Santa Clara Public Library District serves more than 418,000 people living in Santa Clara County, California.
They moved to Kentico after being frustrated with the lack of control over their prior CMS. It was complicated to do minor changes and most of the time would require working with the outside developer to update navigation, footer links, and so forth – also, many customizations to the CMS were not an option due to proprietary code and hosting setup. To make any changes to their previous website, the client had to contact their host/designer and wait a week or more. The client wanted the flexibility to change their website whenever the need arose. They also wanted to make their current design responsive and continue to integrate with their library catalog at Bibliocommons.
PMC recommended Kentico 8, which met all the client’s requirements and had easy-to-implement features like a single blog that propagates content throughout site, responsive design and custom library-specific widgets for catalog integration and podcasting. Using Kentico’s custom tables, the partner was able to implement a caching solution for the Bibliocommons API (library catalog system). The API is limited to two requests per second so this was critical for the client in order to build the desired sliders.
The new site has enabled the client to make changes that allow them to better adapt to the needs of the community and have full control over the environment.
