Wakefly rebuilt and redesigned the website for Smiths Interconnect (the parent
company), and many of its subsidiaries. The company now has a consistent brand
across the entire company, and a robust CMS that enables marketing people to
easily update any of the sites. In addition, Wakefly engaged in organic and paid
search. The subsidiary sites that we redesigned include:
1. The Protection Technology Group (www.protectiongroup.com) combined three of
its websites (polyphaser.com, transtector.com and leaintl.com) into one site
(protectiongroup.com) with one uniform company wide brand. The old site was also
difficult to maintain. For example, all product information, which was the
majority of the site, was contained in multiple Excel spreadsheets. Furthermore,
marketing always had to ask IT to make changes (IT bottleneck). There was a
significant time investment to create landing pages for marketing campaigns.
Finally, there was a lack of workflows to approve content prior to go live.
