Congratulations to our client, Calico Cottage, whose website has been named a Top 10 Website for March 2021 by Kentico Xperience. Each month, the Kentico Xperience team selects the top websites that recently launched on their digital experience platform. Kentico Xperience is part of the Kentico Software product suite and is their single solution content management, digital marketing, and commerce tool.
Calico Cottage came to BlueModus near the launch of its website to complete an audit of the website for any final performance issues. In redesigning their website, Calico Cottage had multiple iterations and multiple development partners. With each new design iteration and development partner, updates were tacked onto existing Kentico Xperience builds. Multiple starts and stops and multiple teams on the implementation led to less than optimal decisions around architecture, security, and performance; a sub-par user experience; and a problematic editing experience for content authors.
BlueModus quickly resolved many critical security and performance issues utilizing Kentico Xperience’s interface. We solved most user experience issues by resolving bugs found in testing and working with the Calico Cottage Team to create new page layouts and widgets on critical pages. Overall, we simplified the content editing experience and provided advanced Xperience training to the Calico Cottage content editors. They are now able to update most of the original content without developer-level skills. This work helped get Calico Cottage in a solid position to launch their new design to the public.
Congratulations to the Calico Cottage team on being recognized as a top Kentico Xperience website.
