Formtek wanted to modernize their website to provide a better experience for visitors and to expand their reach to new clients. A key requirement was to retain their large volume of existing content, but update the previous design to be modern, user-friendly, and mobile-friendly. Formtek (http://www.formtek.com) selected Dharne & Co., (https://www.dharne.com) a creative web design company, to execute the website redesign.
The new website is developed using WordPress and can be self-managed to add and update pages, posts, images, PDFs, audio and videos. With a strong emphasis to attract new clients, features such as inquiry forms, email newsletters and testimonials have been added to the website. The new website is also compatible with all devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Dharne & Co. has ensured Formtek’s new website is highly visible to search engines by providing Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The new website is customer friendly, integrated with an easy to operate blog, and linked to major social media networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, RSS feeds and LinkedIn. Useful tools have been added to the website to track visitors and measure traffic.
“Dharne was a pleasure to work with,” said Edward J. Kay, Formtek Vice President Services & Support. “The design team was able to convert our concepts into good-looking graphics, while the web development and SEO teams were able to accommodate our thoughts and concerns, and were patient with us through several iterations. We are very happy with the end result.”
