Our successful tender to redevelop the Access to Finance website focused on certain enhancements and user tools needed to deliver an improved user experience (UX) and services on the new site.
We worked closely with Oxford Innovation to review the requirements and recommend and implement Drupal – a modern, open-source content management system (CMS). This enabled us to successfully develop all the new envisaged features while also giving the in-house web team flexibility to manage and update the site's content whenever necessary.
The A2F website acts as a portal for companies seeking investment or presenting and pitching ideas to interested parties across the southwest of the UK. Functionality on the site includes registration for investors and businesses alongside a range of complementary user services and systems, including a secure messaging facility. The site has been designed and developed to be fully responsive for desktop and mobile use.
How we helped
An important part of any successfully tender submission is to check a customer’s requirements have been fully interpreted and technically interrogated as necessary.
Our conversations with Oxford Innovation allowed us to quickly identify Drupal as a leading contender for the technical solution, which we went on to implement.
Along with the technical side, we worked to better understand the needs of the A2F website’s two distinct audiences, ensuring the proposed functionality would be performant and sit within a clean and intuitive layout.
