The Boardroom relaunched with Craft CMS

The Boardroom Assessment Centre provide tailored sales and sales leadership training solutions. They have assessment and development centres throughout the UK, and a team of highly qualified people.

The Boardroom have been a client of ours for over eight years and in that time we have delivered a wide range of services to them; from website design, development and hosting to logo design and business stationery.

Most recently, they asked us to redevelop and relaunch their corporate website on a modern and easy-to-use content management system (CMS), replacing the MODx system that their existing site was built on which was proving difficult to use for their content editors.

As Craft CMS specialists we wholeheartedly recommended Craft and outlined the many features and benefits the client would receive by switching to a Craft site. For example, our Craft sites are responsive, ensuring the sites we build function on any device, they are search engine optimised and clients often report a bump in their search engine rank following the launch of a new Craft site and the are super-fast thanks to our advanced caching, hosting and content delivery strategies.

The Boardroom team indicated that they were happy with the site’s design so the front-end wasn’t changed from a visual perspective, although it was rebuilt using the latest HTML, CSS and SASS techniques to mimic the existing look-and-feel.

Alongside the front-end work we integrated the site’s design into a Craft CMS installation and wrote and ran an automated content import process to extract the content from the existing site and bring it into the new site, saving both us and the client from a fairly laborious and time consuming task.

On completion of the development process we carried out a thorough phase of testing and bug-fixing, where necessary, and then progressed to launching the finished site. We can’t wait to see how the new site grows and we’ll be following the content updates the site editors make with much interest.
