AEG is a 120-year-old tool manufacturer with not only a ground-breaking heritage in electrical tools and engineering, but a formative role in establishing the field of industrial design. Their site needed a new fresh, responsive design, which introduced new navigation with a focus on user journey and experience in multiple languages, as well as a 360-degree product viewer, video functionality, and a “featured product” area that would display specific tools. Finally, the site had to be prepared to encourage reviews and move towards a retail-focused approach.
Netconstruct used a responsive, mobile-first design, and multi-lingual approach, leveraging Kentico 8.2’s support for multi-lingual pages and fuzzy-search to allow for users to find tools with partial words and phrases.

iD Mobile is a new Irish mobile operator with a fresh approach that allows its users to choose from a range of options specific to their requirements, not those set by the provider. iD Mobile wanted a website and application that would highlight their unique mobile plans and be a clean and intuitive site with a range of customizations for the user. The website needed flexibility and no fuss with functionality paramount.
The new website enables the user to create a unique mobile plan, completely tailored to their needs. While highly complex in its technical implementation, the interface is easy to use. Continuum placed digital strategy and user experienced design at the center of the website design and build process.

Delta Education is a leading publisher of elementary school science curriculum in the United States. They sell hands-on science kits, readers, and other learning materials to K-8 educational institutions. The website needed to be a critical piece of a larger, integrated program, including catalogs, sales, and online efforts. Delta Education’s catalog and e-commerce needs were complex.
Delta needed to have a standard shopping cart process that worked with normal and bulk purchases, custom checkout process, integration with Avalara for tax estimation services, custom shipping cost calculation business rules, and a custom payment gateway provider (Stripe), and Delta’s ERP system. In a future phase, the site would need to integrate with Delta’s marketing efforts. Finally, Delta needed a mobile-friendly, responsive design that would allow for normal CMS, e-commerce, blogs, and event registration.

Sumo Power is a new entrant in the retail energy market in Melbourne, Australia. The website is Sumo Power’s primary sales registration platform.

A challenge of the project was to optimize the customer conversion experience. Revium developed custom functionality for the concertina-styled sign-up form, the generation of personalized Price Fact Sheets, as well as real-time customized administration reporting. Using Kentico EMS 8.2, Revium implemented a mobile-friendly design, including lead scoring, lead nurturing, personalization, and Marketing Automation features to help Sumo Power reach its goal.
