Companies Office

We were contracted to work with the Companies Office team to develop a new digital product strategy. This included evaluating the current user experience and consulting with frontline staff, developing a new strategy to align all 23 websites - big and small - to a consistent branding, information architecture schema and user experience model.

The resulting product strategy, information architecture and high-level wireframes, were validated with user experience testing and the schema has been applied, with little change required, for over 3 years.

Users, who commonly use a number of the registry sites have a consistent, modern and intuitive user experience. The Companies Office, has a suite of websites that are easy to maintain and manage as a suite, on the one platform.

Thanks to Shelley, Claire and the Companies Office team.
