Jade Solutions 2017

PROJECT SUMMARY

Jade Solutions (UK) Ltd is an approved City & Guilds centre, specialising in providing continual professional development for individuals, companies and educational settings. We have been working with Karen and Jade Solutions since 2009 and during this time we have provided three major updates to the public facing WordPress based system to represent the company. We also develop and retain the secure PHP based Virtual Learning Environment for Jade Solutions, this is regularly updated to maintain efficiency. In 2009 Jade made a major break through by managing to secure the .co.uk domains for each of the qualifications they were providing – dtlls, ctlls and ptlls.co.uk. This catapulted the company to the top of Google and they became recognised as the leading authority in the provision of these educational awards in the UK.

WHAT JADE SOLUTIONS REQUIRED

An upgrade and progression of the front end site, keeping the interface simple, elegant and informative. It remained important for MM&B to provide a system for Jade Solutions to manage their own online presence. As the company grew and evolved, the initial objectives and requirements of the website began to change and this needed to be addressed. Responsively designed websites required a considerable budget in 2013, but today there are systems to automate much of the required work and as a result costs can be significantly reduced. Here was the opportunity for Jade to invest in the upgrade they needed. A refreshed WordPress system to improve the representation of their company – this included evaluating how the old website was being used and re-comprehending the latest information for consistency and ease of access. Recent policy changes to browser security had also underlined the requirement for SSL certification and to provide the most secure experience for visitors of Jade Solution’s website.

WHAT MM&B STUDIO DELIVERED

MM&B Studio proposed a customised, mobile ready WordPress theme using “Visual Composer” to help ensure the structure of the interface was durable. The site is less susceptible to inadvertent design modifications via HTML and CSS changes. We spent several hours importing existing content and creating a template which consistently displays the Price, Date and Venue of each of the upcoming courses. We created dozens of new assets for the site, maturing the brand identity to provide a cool, reassuring experience for the site’s visitors. MM&B supplied a tutorial session, giving support and providing ‘How To’ printed materials which detailed how to use the updated interface in the WordPress back end.
