Fully Responsive for On-the-Go Users

Content management was a challenge for WM Berg’s marketing team, and the site’s structure made it difficult to keep information up-to-date and easy for visitors to access. Ascedia stepped in to develop a best-in-class website and comprehensive digital marketing strategy that would serve up the most relevant content in the formats that on-the-go customers were looking for.

Ascedia recommended the Kentico content management system to support the new site’s structure. Strategic planning revealed high-priority features and functionality that would immediately improve the user experience, and allowed the team to create a phased project plan to address future enhancements. Ascedia used Kentico’s portal engine to build the site, which gave WM Berg’s team a great deal of flexibility when creating their content. 

They have the ability to drag and drop widgets onto certain pages and create new templates on the fly to align with their campaign needs. The team has a wide variety of page styles at their fingertips and can use different combinations of design elements to create effective content and make easily tweak it for maximum effectiveness. The product catalog allows users to filter search results by attribute, and Ascedia also developed a custom quote request form where users can add desired items to a “cart” which is then submitted to WM Berg’s sales team for follow-up.
