The challenge for SPH

Solutions for Public Health (SPH) used to be part of a larger division within the NHS. Consequently they didn’t have their own website and it was difficult to update their own part of the “corporate” website. They wanted a bespoke design that reflected their organisation and of course the site should be secure, responsive, easy to update and incorporate social media. SPH has a number of case studies and testimonials that were specific to a customer type and/or a type of work. The site should therefore display case studies and testimonials relevant to the content the user was reading at the time. Finally, there was a hard deadline that couldn’t be missed.

The solution

Our designer met with SPH to take a brief and developed a series of wireframes. Once signed off these were finessed into a design they were delighted with. This design was made responsive and incorporated into a custom WordPress theme that gave them the functionality they needed. The site is secured via an SSL certificate and runs on our managed hosting with alerts should it ever go down.

The outcome

SPH have a website they can be proud of. The soft launch was made on time and on budget. SPH said,
“Akriga delivered a great website to very challenging timescales. They were easy to work with, we really liked their design ideas, and they were very good at translating ‘tech speak’ to plain English.”
