Website Design with Drupal

Our client is the largest shipping registry in the world, servicing over 12% of the worlds oceangoing fleet.

OUR CHALLENGES

  • Our client required an enhanced website search with the ability to apply filters and allow users to find documents of various types such as HTML, DOC and PDF. Our client also needed to give users the ability to email or download documents directly from the search results screen.
  • They required a new website structure to better serve the needs of its users by making content easier to browse and read on all devices. After creating the new website structure, we would need to migrate content from the legacy website.
  • They wanted to improve its social media marketing by automatically cross-posting all new website blog posts to their Facebook page.
  • They wanted to give users the ability to automatically translate pages into other languages.
  • They wanted to create an interactive world map showing each of the company’s offices around the world. They wanted the map to automatically display the contact details for a regional office when a user hovered the mouse pointer over that office’s location.

OUR SOLUTIONS

Modern Website Design

To understand the present content architecture and the requirements of the website redesign, we held multiple meetings with our client stakeholders. From the beginning, the new website design incorporated all of the key content from the legacy website and was fully responsive for mobile devices.

Enhanced Site Search

Our client’s website users require the ability to search for and download PDF and Word documents to assist with registering vessels or reviewing regulatory information. Using Apache SOLR, we created a new website search with the ability to index and retrieve content from PDF and Word documents. We also implemented a filter that made it easier for users to search for specific content such as procedures and registration forms.

Content Reorganization

Our client’s website is rich in content and complex, we selected Drupal as the new CMS for our client’s website due to its ability to manage custom content types. After creating the new custom content types within Drupal, we migrated their content from the legacy website to the new CMS and content structure.

OUR SOLUTIONS CONTINUED

Home Page and Content Creation

We also designed a new home page for our client’s website to display the website’s recent blog posts and their schedule of upcoming events. In the content creation area, we implemented the ability for content creators to automatically push the content and headline images of blog posts to Facebook.

Regional Localization

We gave our client the ability to translate the website’s core content and menu system into any language. Today a user can select a supported language to automatically view the translated content. We used Google Maps to create the interactive world map and styled the map to fit comfortably within the new website’s visual design.

FINAL RESULT

Our client’s users have reported that the new search function and filters have greatly improved their ability to find documents and with  Apache SOLR users can easily search and find content within multiple document types.

Our localization efforts proved successful for our client’s users throughout the world. Now they can with the translation feature view pages in multiple languages, and using the interactive world map quickly locate their regional offices
