Portfolio- Ektron Content Management System - BDL Group PLC
BDL Group provide plastering, dry lining, screeding and other sub-contract services to the construction industry.
BDL's existing site was well coded, but did not reflect the size or professionalism of
the company. BDL Group commissioned WyeTec to produce a site with a more corporate feel that
was able to serve their needs both now, and in the future.
After an initial consultation, it was clear that the Ektron CMS400.Net Content Management System was the right choice for BDL. The requirements included:
- BDL Group web authors being able to update the site themselves
- A dynamic "latest news" feature
- Site search facility
- Ability to showcase new projects
- Foreign language support
Based on an Ektron content management system, the BDL website presents details of the building contract services on offer, showcases current and previous projects, and provides a portal for attracting new contracts – and contractors.
Additionally, we utilised some of the powerful new features offered by the Ektron CMS –
such as the enhanced META data handling and the "Web Alerts" feature, whereby
subscribers to the site can automatically receive notifications when new content is
Professional photography and copy contributed considerably to add to the overall impact the site
Powering the website is an Ektron content management system, giving controlled access to all website content, and empowering BDL personnel to author content autonomously (without the need to call on the services of a web developer.)
To make the most of the content management system and to aid site administration, the web
site is hosted on one of WyeTec's powerful low-contention web servers. Automated off-site
back-ups ensure the ongoing safety and security of BDL's data.
And how did BDL Group feel about working with WyeTec on this project?
Their IT Manager said, quite simply:
"Thanks for all your help, it's been a pleasure working with you."
