DHI’s website already had a lot of visitors – but they weren’t staying on the site long, and didn’t look at many pages – the navigational structure inhibited their progress through the site and the content wasn’t inspiring or accessible. Since launching the new site, the stats show a good increase in the time people are spending on the site, the pages they’re looking at and the journeys they’re taking. We can happily say that engagement with the site has increased! And of course DHI’s profile has been raised.
Read what DHI have to say:
“We decided to work with Deckchair as they were local, and seemed keen to do the work because they loved it, and not just for business.
Our site was largely static, out of date, lacking audio/video and we couldn’t update it. We wanted something that set off our work as a fundraising tool.
The process of creating the site involved a great deal of interaction with Deckchair – and rather than being a chore or a frustration, it was a pleasure. Deckchair’s customer support is excellent, they have a polite, knowledgeable, sensible and efficient service that I rarely come across with IT people or designers.
The result was very worthwhile, with Deckchair leading the way in setting out the design and structure and coming up with useful and important ideas. Our site is now a useful resource, features interactive content and we have full control over the content. A large number of people are visiting and engaging with our website on a regular basis.”
