A dynamic, integrated WordPress website

FundingKnight came to us looking for a contemporary website that incorporated new branding, their bespoke investment software, and a flexible, powerful content management system (CMS). Their previous CMS environment was restrictive and disjointed, and required a large amount of development support to make even minor changes to the site. Therefore the flexibility and ease of use WordPress offers made it the obvious choice for their team.

We built them a custom theme that incorporated the popular Visual Composer editor, which enables web admins to create and manage complex layouts without needing developer support.

We mapped out the different content types and styles before developing a custom Visual Composer CMS for the editor. We stripped out the unnecessary features for simplicity and included custom built tools to enable them to have more control over their content. The end result is a drag and drop editor that is powerful and flexible, but ensures content is consistent and aligned to brand guidelines.

An informative, modern theme

Collaborating with Suckerfish, who worked on the design, we created a clean, responsive, custom child theme based on the Sage framework. We also collaborated with Lark Media, who created the informational content to help drive investor and business owner interest, to produce wireframes and information architecture.

To enable potential investors and businesses to express interest effortlessly, we integrated their new website with Salesforce’s Pardot forms, allowing the team at FundingKnight to customise their forms easily in seconds. The result was a contemporary, elegant website that successfully communicated their modern finance services.

Integration with bespoke services

Working with various teams at FundingKnight, we seamlessly integrated their new website with the peer-to-peer, bespoke FundingKnight platform and their hosting environment. The bespoke platform allows users to apply for and invest in business loans, use FundingKnight’s tracking and marketing software, as well as being deployed on their custom secure server.

The FundingKnight website and CMS build was an exciting and eye-opening exercise in delivering a usable system for a client to design and build their own templates, and carry out their vision with minimal requirement for further customisations.
