Independent Vet Care (IVC) is a group of veterinary practices. They needed an easy-to-use website template that each practice within the group would be able to customize, based on its own offering. The template needed to be able to support multiple languages as future plans involve a roll out to several European countries. The site needed to be easy for each practice to manage so that websites could be created without the need for help from developers. With a potential reach of 600 sites, the aim of this project is to transform the entire web presence for the group.

With more than 125 years’ experience, Kapsch Group is one of Austria’s most successful technology corporations. They focus on Road Telematics, Information Technology, and Telecommunications. The relaunch of the website was part of a global corporate design change. As Kentico EMS was already used for the Kapsch intranet since 2008 as well as the previous version of kapsch.net since 2012, it was decided to continue with this collaboration. All necessary permissions for, potentially, more than 100 roles are easily managed by using Kentico Template Roles. In a custom security tab, specially built for Kapsch, template user roles, with the needed permissions, can be assigned to employees for the chosen tree node.

Madison Electric is an innovative product development company. Their new website needed to promote Smart Box electric device boxes and tell its story to electricians, retailers, and homeowners. Madison Electric needed a platform to house hundreds of SKUs and SKU images so that their big-box retailers could easily pull proper images into their own websites and systems. Through the Kentico Media Library, it was easy to organize the many images, similar to PIM platforms. Other Kentico features utilized were Forms, Custom Modules, Web Parts, and Widgets. There’s also an e-commerce functionality on the website roadmap which was one of the reasons why they have chosen Kentico.

Melbourne Airport is the primary airport serving the city of Melbourne, and the second busiest airport in Australia. The site provides a complete resource for information relating to the airport including flight information, shopping, and parking. Prior to its recent rebuild in Kentico, the site was on a custom proprietary CMS. Pages were slow to load and content administration was clunky. Since the relaunch, average page load speeds have improved by more than 56% and the use of modular page design has vastly increased content management efficiency. The site rebuild was a joint project between Get Started (back-end development) and Hardhat Digital (strategy, design, and front end).

Customer Success Story

With almost 82,000 pages and 44,500 SKUs, a robust platform was needed to cope with a site of this size whilst delivering great site speed and performance. Kentico, together with Microsoft Azure implementation, delivered an incredible 78% increase in revenue and an increase in site traffic of 46%.

The website was migrated to Microsoft Azure due to the need of the hmv team to have a flexible and functional e-commerce platform that would stock their great range of products and offer customers the same experience they receive in-store.  By the end of 2017, the number of products is set to be around 100,000 and the growth rate is expected to be in the region of half a million over the next year.  This means the site is optimized to load the huge number of products quickly. In order to provide the best possible customer experience, simplicity is key in showcasing the store's products. Ridgeway achieved this through a clean, uncluttered interface with hero imagery of striking album artwork and photography.
