Lee has worked tirelessly on ensuring our new website is the best it can be pushing boundaries and solving problems to make the site functionally and appealing. Lee has a positive can do attitude and demonstrated excellent customer care throughout the project.
Ensuring the Bruton Knowles website is constantly up to date with the latest properties and developments within Bruton Knowles diverse property portfolio was one of the main requirements of their new website.
Utilising their in house property database, accessible by agents across the UK, a dedicated data feed was established directly into the website. This removes the need for agents to manage both systems, and hence eradicate errors and missing information. By simply updating their in house property software, the data is automatically converted and added to the website. The custom written extension interprets the data, automatically resizes and converts any images and document links.
Each property has a unique four digit code, that is utilised across all signage, marketing and promotional material. By simply entering this code into the search box on the website the property page is available.
Further areas of the website focus on the broad range of services and sectors Bruton Knowles operate in. A comprehensive and regularly updated news section with tagged articles, allowing keyword filtering, informs users of the latest developments.
A team section with profiles of Bruton Knowles employees and their specialisms details each staff members particular skills.
Using the advanced access level controls of Joomla an extranet also allows restricted access to different sections of the website for the sharing of documents and imagery across the Bruton Knowles locations.
Alongside the main Bruton Knowles website, are a number of satellite sites targeting specific needs. With some developments requiring a large volume of documents and tender applications, a dedicated property document management system, allows agents to set up secure and restricted access content pages, where comprehensive documentation, required for the tender process, can be made available to a select group of users.
Other sites include the regular Business Breakfast conferences hosted by Bruton Knowles, Young Agricultural Awards and the Gloucestershire Root Fruit and Grain Society website.
