  • The Challenge

    Split into three divisions (Industrial, Pharmaceutical and Personal Care) Alfa Chemicals supply chemicals to a wide range of markets from cosmetics to automotive. DCSL Software was approached to create a website that not only consolidated how their product information was organised but how best that information could be found and understood by their website users.

    The Solution

    Sitefinity provided DCSL Software with the ideal platform from which to kick-start the web development process. Through Sitefinity’s web tools, DCSL Software was able to build a large and comprehensive site that incorporated all the features required to effectively meet the needs of their client’s brief.
    Furthermore, Sitefinity’s flexibility enabled DCSL Software to create new modules for managing the categories, products and other supporting material so that the site’s product specific information could be easily managed. As well as this, Alfa Chemicals also required an advanced search function to allow users to easily locate the products they were most interested in by filtering them by division, market, function or product group.
    Traffic was driven to the website using strategic offline marketing campaigns and through organic search engine optimization. Using Sitefinity as the development framework enabled DCSL Software to react quicker to changes and update requests – a case in point being the Page Module, whose built-in history and rollback functionality has been a big time-saver.

    The Results

    Alfa Chemicals now has a site that can be used by its sales force as a tool for generating leads and supporting the sales process. The client was very impressed by the speed of development and the fact that all their feature requests were incorporated into the new site without the need for compromise. The DCSL Software - Sitefinity partnership for Alfa Chemicals has proven beyond doubt that it’s an attractive and effective combination that has delivered exactly what they wanted on time and on budget.
