"A website we not only love and are proud of, it has also has proved to be a significant part of why people sit up and take notice of us."
- Mike Baker, Director
The Pension Solutions Group approached Ralph with a clear idea of how they did not want to be perceived. Typically pensions and investments websites are dry and conservative, striving to appear reliable and trustworthy they rarely take risks with design. PSG wanted to present a fresher, more human face.
As with many of our clients, they'd had frustrating experiences with content managed websites in the past. They are either too simplistic, not enabling them to do what they wanted on the page, or too complicated, resulting in having to get out the manual for even the most simple of updates.
At Ralph we believe that a good content management system doesn't need a manual. Even after months of inactivity, a client should be able to login and make the changes they need to without all the head scratching. For PSG we chose Expression Engine, a robust, secure and easy to use system that allows for plenty of future growth. The design of the backend was just as important as what the public would see, and this careful planning now means that updates to the content are both quick and simple to carry out.
"We started off more certain of what we didn’t want than what we did. Ralph helped us with the brief before enthusiastically setting about creating a website that we not only love and are proud of, but that has proved to be a significant part of why people sit up and take notice of us. Chris and the guys were great to work with, making the whole project very time and cost effective as well as satisfying."
