Top 10 Kentico Websites for September 2014

   —   
Ah September… this colorful, autumn month has brought us an equally colorful variety of web projects delivered on the Kentico platform. We have picked a bushel of ten fresh, juicy websites just for you – bon appetite!
EnerPlex
EnerPlex
Implemented by Burns Marketing
USA
Kentico Gold Partner

EnerPlex manufactures rugged portable power solutions for urban and outdoor enthusiasts. One of the biggest problems with their old website was its lack of mobile and tablet responsiveness. Almost 40% of website visitors were visiting from mobile devices, so the main goal was to develop a modern, responsive design solution that improves product positioning to a diverse and highly mobile demographic. EnerPlex also needed to upgrade their CMS and e-commerce platforms to improve content marketing and customer service efforts.
The final solution includes e-commerce functionality, a charge-time calculator, a dealer locator mapping solution, product registration processes, and FAQs. Burns Marketing’s website build made it simple to explore a wide range of products with only a few clicks. Buying on the website has never been easier.
Now, the bounce rate is down 30% and sales have increased by almost 20% since the new site launched. It’s been easier than ever to process orders, create store reports, and manage EnerPlex store inventory.

North Coast TAFE
North Coast TAFE
Implemented by Adrenalin Media
Australia
Kentico Gold Partner

North Coast TAFE is part of TAFE NSW and is one of the largest regional training providers in Australia.
The goals for the website are to improve the online digital presence for North Coast TAFE and its associated campuses around New South Wales. The client wanted to build a website that was easy for its current and prospectus students to access, as well as for internal staff to be able to easily update. Responsive architecture was a must as young people, the target audience, love using mobile devices. Kentico EMS (version 8) with its online marketing features was recommended to help the client increase traffic and new student enrolments through the website. Active Directory Integration, Custom Tables and Forms have been implemented as well as the EMS Marketing Tools (A/B Testing, MVT, Personalisation, etc.). The result has been excellent so far – the client has seen an increase in page visits, duration and a % increase in enrolments.

Pet Drugs Online
Pet Drugs Online
Implemented by True Digital
United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

Established and run by qualified vets, Pet Drugs Online is a UK based, leading supplier of prescription and non-prescription medication, accessories and food products directly to pet owners.
True Digital were approached to design a sector leading responsive website that would be robust and scaleable as well as enjoyable and easy-to-use and buy for visitors. Pet Drugs Online wanted to improve site conversion, AOV and lifetime value.
True suggested the Kentico EMS platform as the best choice to meet Pet Drugs Online’s requirements. They have delivered a powerful E-commerce website with bespoke customisation to extend Kentico’s out-of-the- box functionality, which is fully responsive to be accessible for any devices. Integration with multiple 3rd party providers was implemented, including an ERP, Feefo customer reviews and payment engines – Sagepay and PayPal.
In less than 4 weeks, the launch pages per session have significantly increased, which shows better engagement with content, and conversion on mobile has increased – up by almost 20% so far – as well as AOV.

Pembina Pipeline
Pembina Pipeline
Implemented by E-Cubed Media Synthesis
Canada
Kentico Partner

Pembina Pipeline Corporation are a leading transportation and midstream service provider that has been serving North America's energy industry for 60 years.
They were in need of a new responsive website since the last website redesign was in 2010 – the company was falling behind the times as far as website design and functionality. E-cubed Media Synthesis proposed to use the Kentico platform (Kentico 8), which appeared to be the best product to differentiate Pembina from peers in the energy infrastructure space.
Every design idea that E-Cubed Media developed – from embedded video backgrounds on the home page to interactive infographics – was able to be implemented in a way that would be easy for people who aren’t website gurus to be able to update. The primary goal was to be able to provide rich content and keep the website fresh with as minimal external support as possible. The website is fully responsive with:

The new website has received positive reviews from both internal and external stakeholders alike, and the client is very happy with the end product and is confident that this site will carry them far into the future!

 

Martini
Martini
Implemented by MMT Digital
United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

Martini is a global drinks manufacturer and part of the Bacardi family. The purpose of the project was to redesign and rebuild in order to bring it in-line with Martini’s new global brand guidelines, the ‘Begin Desire’ campaign.
The objectives of the project were simple – rebuild on top of the pre-existing Martini site, as fast and cost- effectively as possible. For this reason, the focus of this project was more on integrating the new designs than overhauling the back-end mechanics of the site.
The site is built on Kentico 7, and uses the Kentico culture function extensively in order to translate the site into a number of languages, each controllable by the Martini local markets. The pages, products and cocktails are all shareable via Facebook, Twitter and Google plus.The site is in position as the digital centrepiece for the ‘Begin Desire’ campaign when it‘s rolled out to various countries across the globe.

Iowa Wesleyan College
Iowa Wesleyan College
Implemented by Yoodle
USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Iowa Wesleyan College is a fully accredited, coeducational liberal arts college. Founded in 1842, it has a rich history of innovation in education, pioneering in the sciences, educational opportunities for women and service-learning, to name just a few.
Iowa Wesleyan went through a rebranding of the college this year. Management gave the internal web team and Yoodle a simple mandate: Change the branding of the website to reflect the new colors and the more personal approach of the university and do it very quickly.
The site is mobile responsive and works very well on all devices. The mega menu was custom developed, but the Kentico API allowed the team to integrate the menu with the content tree to provide a seamless experience. The site also utilizes the concept of user generated content. The events section has a form that allows site users to submit events. This goes into the content tree and awaits approval. Once the content goes through the Kentico publishing workflow, it‘s published automatically. Donations to the college are integrated and processed through paypal.
It is still too early to evaluate the new branding, but as expected, there has been an increase in the number of “Request more information” form submissions.

ESPO
ESPO
Implemented by Control F1
United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

ESPO, one of the UK’s largest procurement services, had their products and services spread across 6 different websites, resulting in confusion for their web users. The main goal, therefore, was to integrate all of this information into a single site. The site needed to reflect the ESPO brand message, and to have a modern, responsive design, but also strong elements of personalisation.
Control F1 built the website using Kentico’s EMS platform. Customers can now sign into their own personalised dashboard, configure their profile and preferences, gain access to valuable tools, and view information that is of interest. What’s more, through Kentico Web Analytics, ESPO can continually gain a deeper understanding of their users’ online behaviour to further personalise and improve their experience. This also enables targeted social media activity. In the future, the A/B and Multivariate Testing features will be used to test and identify which versions of pages are the most popular, helping ESPO to further optimise their web offering.
