Freeman & Harding already had a website but was lagging behind in terms of latest technology, their hosting platform, performance, speed and engagement among other issues. ChilliApple was approached by the client to revamp their website, making it responsive for mobile browsers and upgrading it to the latest version of hosting platform. The project also required support and maintenance to ensure a continuous speed-optimised performance of the website. The project development was guided by an analysis of the website for all the major focus areas and a client briefing. The resultant analysis document brought together the project strategy, tools and software requirements, agreed on expectations and expected date of delivery.
The website needed a proactive approach to improve the operating capabilities and optimise it to provide the best user experience and enhanced interactivity, along with responsiveness and upgrade. The project started with the upgrade of hosting platform to the latest version of PrestaShop. This removed many obstructing elements and glitches that had been affecting the performance of the website. Next step was to inject fresh codes and include latest elements to ensure a responsive website that would adapt to mobile browsers. The final phase of the project entailed support and maintenance task, when we improved the UI/UX, elimination of junk files and unnecessary cache data to ensure the optimum performance of the website.
