They wanted to:
- Relaunch their global website in three languages - English, Spanish, and French
- Migrate 200+ websites with 30K multi-lingual pages to a scalable, flexible, and responsive CMS
- Deliver user-friendly experiences to web admins, content creators, and users
- Enhance developer experience with reusable components
- Deliver frictionless experience to their marketers by providing features like content sharing and localization capabilities
- Improve editorial experience
- Optimize the overall website performance
Some of the challenges were:
- Inconsistent UX across regional websites and microsites
- Difficulty adding new sites to the existing infrastructure
- Lack of reusable components
- Inability to modify and update content in real-time
- Lack of flexibility to carry out advanced searches
- Inability to share and localize content
- Absence of multi-site website infrastructure
We worked closely with the team during the discovery phase to understand their needs at a granular level and delivered the following solution:
- Built a unified, secure, and scalable Drupal-based platform and migrated their corporate websites to the new platform with negligible impact on ongoing operations.
- Created an impactful no-code platform with Acquia Site Studio that enabled authors and marketers to quickly create rich pages in the production environment with the drag-and-drop content authoring capability and roll out content faster to provide a better user experience.
- Leveraged Acquia Site Factory to manage multi-site deployments, including their custom micro-sites.
- Enabled the digital platform team to build, provision, and maintain their global sites using the benefits of Acquia Site Factory’s centralized cloud management console.
- Provided advanced and flexible search capabilities with Acquia Search to deliver faster search results.
