Case Study: SpectralWorks

A rebuild, redesign and import from exiting CMS – Umbraco – to WordPress


We were tasked with a full site rebuild of, importing a large number of pages from their existing platform – Umbraco – across to a brand new site on WordPress.

A complete rebuild of an existing (Umbraco) site, ported into WordPress with an eye on SEO; large number of 301 redirects to ensure old URLs still worked and a great deal of attention to ‘on-page’ SEO improvement.

Properly GDPR compliant in terms of data usage, tracking and cookies, site features Mailchimp Newsletter integration, embedded Social Media feeds and some complex form structure.

The download/registration forms required some custom code to integrate with existing API system. Client supplied with tailor-made ‘how to’ videos for the SpectralWorks team.

A good job and we are happy to retain their services for support.
