We recently worked with Demand Technology to redesign their old website and install a content management system to make updating their website easier. Built in the 2006, the old site was not only dated, but hard to navigate for users. The previous site was basically static html with two separate installs of WordPress powering both the blog and the Performance Sentry FAQs. The support site, powered by HelpSpot was hard to reach making clients have to click from the main site, to the FAQ (WordPress) site and then to the support site. A user navigating the previous site would have to click out to the 3 different “sites” all with slightly different looks which can be very confusing. After our initial conference call, our goal was clear: to bring the main static site and two separate WordPress blog and FAQ “sites” together under a single WordPress install that allows for easy management of the various areas of the website. The support site is still powered by HelpSpot and we updated the graphics and look of it to match the main site so there is a seamless experience for the user.
A word about the navigation
Previously, the navigation was positioned vertically down the left side of the site and didn’t show any of the sub-page structure, leaving the user to have to click through several pages to get to where they wanted. By positioning the navigation across the page under the header and implementing drop-down menus for child pages, the user can now quickly access any page they want without having to sift through multiple pages. Additional navigation menus were positioned at the very top-right of the site and on the left-side of the footer area for added ease in moving about the site.
We are very excited and proud to share with you the new and improved Demand Technology Software website. Take a look at the new site and let us know what you think!
