The solution Deanta provided included converting content to XML and wireframing and building the microsite on a new Open Source CMS WordPress platform. This enabled the flexibility to rapidly build, edit and customise the platform from both a visual and a technical perspective. Technical implementation involved validating users across domains and to ensure that only registered members of the Chartered Accountants website had access to textbooks. In order to create a clean sense of familiarity for users, Deanta created a number of visual treatments that leveraged images relevant to Chartered Accountants Ireland, recognisable surroundings from both the Dublin and Belfast skylines. The visual treatment remained within brand guidelines yet offered a fresh experience across all pages on the website.
As a partner in Chartered Accountant Ireland’s services chain, Deanta was able to understand, breakdown and deliver a robust and cost effective digital solution. Using a creative approach to both content and design, the prototype allowed the internal teams earn buy-in from senior stakeholders to launch a fully fledged, easy-to-use and contemporary student textbook site in time for the 2019 academic year.
