Kent Periscopes required a new online look to coincide with a recent expansion and relocation to a larger site and saw this as the perfect opportunity to refresh the online presence, user experience and improve mobile friendliness for on-the-move browsing.
We designed and built them a new website using Bootstrap 3.x, HTML 5, CSS 3, compatible with IE9, IE19, IE11, Firefox, Safari and Chrome and Content Managed via Umbraco 7.2.8. The site is fully responsive front-end and back-end allowing customers to browse and Admin to make site updates via mobile devices.
Kent Periscopes wanted an improved products section allowing customers to browse products both by Product Type (eg. Unity Vision Periscopes) and Product Solution (eg. Driver's Position), after customer feedback taught them that sometimes a customer does not know what type of product they need but understand the solution required. Kent Periscopes also wanted to provide customers with as much information as possible via download resources, however they wanted to understand how customers were using these downloads. Therefore a secure login area was created so customers had to login to release the downloads functionality. Every time a download was made the CMS recorded the file name, time and name of the person performing the download.
Our design team eliminated the heavy-handed nature of the product with the use of a white space, bright accent colour and strong supporting imagery. Subtle CSS3 animation was used to build the pages as the customer scrolled and sliders were integrated to reduce page clutter.
After training the client, they were able to populate their own content via the easy to use Umbraco 7.2.8 Content Management interface.
Another happy client! www.kentperiscopes.co.uk
