Rade was requested to design and build a suite of websites for each of the brands but all within one admin area for efficiency and ease of use.
We created an eye-catching, responsive master design which was similar across all the brands. This ensures a 'familiar' feel whilst adhering to all the respective brand's colourways.
Umbraco was the natural choice; it allows for multiple sites and even multi-lingual sites all within one base installation.
There is a bespoke News area where the content only has to input once and can then be published on whichever sites are applicable.
A Dealer look-up which works 'per brand' allowing the visitor to input their postcode which performs a 'radius search' within the locality. All dealers are put into the one system and a simple tick box dictates which site(s) the dealer is shown on.
Also a dedicated Download Centre which features a parametric filtering facility where visitors can pick their product and model. This then offers up available literature types such as Brochures, Operators Manuals, Parts manuals and Technical Information.
