Neil from Solvendis was already up to speed with using WordPress so we agreed this was the best option for the basis for both of the new websites.
The approach started with another meeting with Duncan and Abbey to discuss Neils likes and dislikes from a design perspective, which was great as we were all pretty much on the same page from the start. We all felt the previous site was very flat and dated so once the initial designs were started we addressed this with a fresh new colour scheme, a better user experience and call to actions in the right places so anyone that was unsure was welcomed to call Solvendis for help.
There was a lot of manual processes on the original Solvendis Seminars website so we sat and discussed with Neil some ways to automate elements to cut down his time spent on the site so he can dedicate more of his time running the business. One of the first issues was Neil produced pdf downloads manually for each seminar which had dates on that had to keep being changed, this has now been replaced with auto generated pdf's that take the live information off the page and create the pdf on the fly. Not only is this a massive time saver but they look so much better than the originals too. The booking process was also quite manual too which has been tweaked so the website takes over some of the process again to save time in labour.
Each page was designed seperately before development as with every site we develop so Neil could critique the work before going into development.
