This project had an unmissable 6-month delivery deadline, which was imperative to meet. The Smiths Interconnect team managing the project is based across (2) continents, in different locations and time zones.

The new website involved consolidating seven legacy websites into one Kentico EMS instance migrating content from Ektron, Drupal, Sitecore and earlier versions of Kentico CMS.

The Solution

The i3 Digital consultancy team hosted an engaging 3-day UX/UI/Technical discovery workshop at Smiths Interconnects’ London office. We dove deep into the website's architecture, prioritised products and content, crafted detailed customer personas, mapped out crucial customer journeys, and focused on client engagement and conversion strategies. The workshop's highlights included;

    • The creation of wireframes for all major user paths
    • Innovative entry screen designs
    • Detailed product presentations

Parallel to this, our technical analyst meticulously developed a comprehensive requirements specification that aligned seamlessly with the finalised user interfaces and functionalities.
