Website Redesign & Redevelopment To Showcase School IT Services
Founded in 1982, Beebug was initially a major player in the Acorn market. Since 1998, Beebug has focused exclusively on being an Education ICT Solution provider. Beebug have very successfully supported many schools with their ICT needs and understand that a functioning ICT network is vital to a successful school.
Beebug already have a proven track record of success with supplying IT into schools across the UK. However to expand their portfolio of schools and reach into other Education sectors, Beebug approached AllDesignOnline to work alongside their in-house programming team to redesign and develop the main Beebug website.
The key feature of the redesign is to showcase clearly on the homepage the range of core IT services Beebug provide and present them in a clean, modern way and encourage potential new schools/education establishments to contact Beebug for further information. An additional aim was to highlight the ongoing relationships Beebug have with other technology partners such as Apple, Google, Hewlet Packard etc.
Beebug have previously been keen to utilise their own in-house resources who work in ASP.NET to create the Content Management System (CMS) and deliver the pages. However, recognising the ease and convivence and flexibility of using WordPress to act as the CMS, Beebug requested that we used this for the new website.
To emphasise the message of technology in school, a range of IT and school age children images were used together along with a mature and playful contrasting colour pallet of dark grey and vibrant yellow.
As with all current websites, the website displays clearly on mobile devices and is fully responsive and easy to navigate to make the website as accessible as possible.
The modular construction of the site has allowed scope for additional sections to be added into the site in future phases of work along with the WPBakery content editor which gives Beebug complete control over all of the content.
AllDesignOnline have provided us with some great design work, especially with the website which has really helped us reach out to new clients with confidence. They worked well with our on-house team, understanding different skill sets and how best to utilise them to produce a fantastic end result.
