OWA Digital was approached by Oxford Innovations to participate in a tender process to redevelop the organisation’s Access to Finance (A2F) service website.
A2F is a European Regional Development Fund-supported programme helping businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to raise funds and grow.
Following submission of our tender response and further interviews with Oxford Innovations, we were appointed as the successful supplier to create the new A2F website.
What we did
As part of the tender specification, Oxford Innovations identified certain enhancements and user tools needed on the new website. We reviewed the requirements and recommended deployment of Drupal – a modern, open-source content management system. This enabled us to successfully develop all the new features while also giving the in-house team flexibility to manage and update the site's content when necessary.
The A2F website acts as a portal for companies seeking investment or presenting and pitching ideas to interested parties. 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 is fully responsive for desktop and mobile use.
