The prominant association needed to update their public web presence to reflect their new company vision, branding, and culture. Their existing system was outdated and was becoming increasingly time-consuming and costly to maintain.
i3solutions was selected to use its experience as a SharePoint consulting firm to design and implement a new solution on the SharePoint intranet platform. First, i3solutions met with the different project teams to identify the components and features to be included on each page throughout the site. Second, i3solutions worked closely with the marketing department to build the SharePoint components to support the user interface (UI), branding, and styling of their new website. The new look and feel required extensive customization of the SharePoint pages and i3solutions was responsible for developing the customizations and components needed to successfully implement the new user interface.
i3solutions also assisted with the design of the new structure and information architecture. This included revamping the site structure, metadata taxonomy, and the list and libraries. i3solutions also integrated the SharePoint system with their external membership management system, ProTech, which required a custom component to exchange member information between the two systems. i3solutions developed custom components to support image rotator modules and ad banners throughout the solution. i3solutions built custom webparts to support events, advocacy and other user resources. i3solutions also provided SharePoint Power User training to their internal content managers.
Overall, the new SharePoint system provided them with a professional solution to promote their mission and values along with their new branding and marketing themes. SharePoint provided a content management platform that was easier to maintain and allowed each department to edit and maintain their specific areas of the website without the need for IT support. i3solutions is currently providing ongoing maintenance services to support the public websites and to implement ongoing enhancements to this very large and dynamic website.
Before you compromise on organizational need and deprive yourself of a complete solution to company challenges, doesn’t it make sense to invest in a discussion about what an i3solutions’ application can do for your business?
