The most important requests for the new Street Smart website were
- To ensure that users could quickly and easily find the information they were looking for
- To provide clear routes of discovery of available properties, whilst encouraging and enhancing user engagement
- To have an extremely user-friendly interface that would ensure editors could concentrate on publishing great content without having to worry about page layout or styling issues
Drupal 7 was our preferred choice of content management system because of its open-source code and extensibility, meaning that the client could have complete control over the site and that it would be fast and robust out of the box. It would also allow inexperienced users to easily update the site content thereby reducing training overheads. The new website uses a responsive design to optimise the user viewing experience, meaning that even if they are on a desktop, tablet or mobile device, they are always viewing the website at its best.
