Adept found that their customers were requiring more and more user-friendly systems for accessing internal company resources. Also new customers were unable to easily find information on the products and services offered. At this point it was clear that having a highly functional, user-friendly site was very important for running a successful business and improving the company online presence became a top priority.
A main part of the project included selecting a Content Management System that would better address their current challenges. The company required a data-driven website developed in Microsoft .Net and SQL Server, all built within and managed by a single system. After evaluating several products, Telerik’s Sitefinity CMS was the ultimate choice as it offered all the needed functionality. Including drag and drop page editing, versioning and flexible workflow process which ensures any site changes are delivered to those with the sign-off responsibilities.
Web 2.0 is about listening to your end users and responding accordingly, “…no other CMS we looked at came close to this level of functionality” said Hailey.
Sitefinity was integrated with existing internal systems including the Adept Compliance system, SuperOffice CRM and BITS eMetrics tracking system. This allowed company employees to maintain data consistency and all internal systems were always up-to-date.
Since the launch of the new website, Adept has achieved technical freedom. Now they are able to maintain the system and insure that relevant business information always is available to their web users. Adept customers also rated the new website highly since they are able to navigate to relevant services more easily.
“We are very happy with Sitefinity and absolutely love the product” summarizes their overall impression Hailey.
