ADSO is a nationally recognised, professional association for members of local and national government to help promote their development through the provision of learning opportunities and qualifications.

The Brief

ADSO needed a new WordPress website that allowed them to communicate with their members easily and effectively. The new site had to:

  • Provide a visually dynamic homepage with scrolling and fading news items
  • Create online surveys for members with built-in analysis
  • Allow for online booking and membership renewals
  • Have a granulated permissions systems with separate and secure areas

The Result

Our designers quickly produced UX wireframes that incorporated carousels, banners, and integrated social media feeds in order to give the site a contemporary look and feel. Our developers implemented a Role Based Access Control system for users, as well as an auto-publishing tool for pushing content to social media. ADSO’s deprecated forum module was replaced with an up-to-date one, and a migration pathway created so that all their past forum posts were still accessible.

Since delivery we have been providing ongoing support and maintenance, including the updating of the WordPress core to the latest version released in order to maintain the site’s security.

International Private Finance Logo

International Private Finance (IPF) broker international mortgages and obtain finance for customers who are looking to buy or already own an overseas property. Their unique approach to arranging overseas mortgages has ensured that they have quickly grown since they set up in January 2008 to become the leading International mortgage broker for non-resident borrowers.

The Brief

IPF approached us with the need to create:

  • A range of responsive mortgage calculators for IPF’s WordPress site and Mortgage France's WordPress site
  • A brand new set of email templates to aid them in bringing in new customers and keeping their current customers up to date
  • Both had to perform optimally on all platforms from laptops to phones

The Result

We took IPF through our lean rapid prototyping approach and quickly progressed to building a full solution. We then developed the bespoke WordPress mortgage calculators from the ground up and exactly to specifications. Zodiac Media’s agile and lean approach to software development was vital in getting this completed on time and to budget. Finally we created a modern, fully-responsive design for IPF’s newsletters that were equally accessible on mobile devices as they were on desktop ones.
