The Damovo Group, which specialises in mission-critical, highly secure communication environments, comprises 7 regional businesses and Damovo Global Services, with its operations spanning 100 countries worldwide.
Following our work to consolidate and strengthen the Damovo brand, Damovo asked Oculus to help redefine its corporate digital strategy. Its existing online presence comprised a series of disparate localised assets that were not reflecting Damovo’s global status.
We began with a thorough consultation and planning process, analysing the base technology architecture stack, coding language and looking at basic fundamentals of voice, tonality and graphics.
During in-depth workshops with Damovo, we combined the results of our research with information about client legacy systems and existing in-house skill sets. This enabled us to define the scope and architecture needed to underpin the design and build of a multi-language corporate website that would take the Damovo online presence to an entirely new level. We proposed the website be built using the Kentico 8 content management system (CMS) as the ASP.NET infrastructure integrates with current platforms and technologies.
We worked closely with Damovo to build user journey maps from both a business and a user perspective. These journeys focused on allowing the easiest path for all users, which defined the content hierarchy strategy and, finally, the wireframe. The Oculus creative team then provided the design visuals, mapping the creative to the agreed logic.
The dynamic build centres on a structural backbone, pulling in dynamic content to deliver, currently, five regional websites in three languages from a single architecture, with regional access to content for ongoing client-driven updates. It works across all platforms and is fully CMS enabled.
