Above: The MPS Executive Suites home page, with a moving slider, customized mid-layout and graphical footer.
The problem: MPS Executive Suites had a very old-looking site that was static – no one could update it unless they knew HTML, and unless they had the password…which was troublesome. The company had recently renovated its centre, and the old site did not do justice to the prominent location, high-end corporate services, advanced technology, beautiful view, and clientelle of this company. They needed an update, a re-write of content, and most importantly, visuals to show their breath-taking office space.
The accomplishment: The site was completely re-built into a content management system with a home page showcasing the facility’s best views in a moving slider. The idea was to stay simple with content, and so the middle layout portion was simplified to contain only three columns (instead of including the usual sidebar with multiple elements). The footer was used to add more visuals and to help visitors easily contact the centre, which would further help sales.
A blog was built in to the site to add relevancy of content for SEO, and also to give tips to readers. A slideshow was incorporated, so that now anyone at the company can add photos to pages and posts.
A contact form was requested, and in order to avoid spam, an image captcha form was included. Social media icons that matched the requested wooden background were featured on every page. The sidebar stayed with the simple concept by adding button links as visuals to get people to the important parts of the site.
Finally, Google embeds such as a map showing their location and calendars to display office and boardroom bookings were included.
