Four separate websites existed to manage the four brand sites, these needed to be consolidated with a simple to use editor and consistent analytics. This also needed to support distributed authoring with central content for publishing. The web is by far the biggest source of leads for the business, so no damage could be done to existing search rankings or to damage client expectations.
The business is growing internationally so needs to support multiple geographies and languages. A new brand and website design needed to create a deeper online engagement and provide greater support to the phone-based experts when choosing the perfect holiday for clients. This complete change in infrastructure and content needed to be done on a fixed budget within tight timescales
The Sitecore solution was chosen for its strength in content management and the integrated Digital Marketing System - DMS. We were selected as the right partner, due to our design, engagement and technical experience and their long term partnership approach.
Strategy and roadmaps were created through Sitecore’s Business Optimisation Service – SBOS. This provided a framework for defining business objectives and translating those into meaningful strategies with an implementation timetable.
The solution architecture was based around three key principles: creating a great user experience, website personalisation and future-proofing the site to meet product expansion plans. Sitecore’s versatility in managing content meant we could fulfil the distributed content authoring required, with the central control to review and publish content when required. The entire Sitecore DMS was employed to optimise the experience, target content and manage transactions. The system was to start small, measure effectiveness and build the capabilities as required.
