The challenge

Clarasys was struggling with an inflexible website that had developed a number of security concerns over time. All content changes required IT support which was delaying marketing initiatives and causing frustration across departments. Clarasys challenged us to secure their website and deliver a user friendly content management system to help them manage their site day to day.

Having just undergone a rebrand, Clarasys also needed a new frontend design to launch their new brand.

Our approach

We recommended a backend first rebuild to rapidly deliver priority functionality. This involved rebuilding and launching a new backend code base before starting work on the new website design. We secured the website and replaced the hard coded page layouts with modular components to enable easy content management.

Getting to know the team

Our research showed that users were interested in reading about the Clarasys team but struggled to navigate the long list of team members. The new site design presents relevant team member profiles alongside content to assist the user journey.

Designing with data

We conducted a behavioural analysis and content architecture review to benchmark Clarasys’ existing website performance against key competitors in their market. This data was used to guide the new website structure and create engaging user journeys, increasing on-site conversion rate and search engine rankings.
