Coping with Growth
The meteoric growth of the ATR and TRS division of McGrath has been congruous with the need to update and manage a medley of new products added from time to time to their website. This however, wan managed manually, which meant extra overhead. Plus, they largely depended on their development team to perform simple content changes.
Equipping the Marketing Function
What McGrath needed foremostly was to develop responsive, user-friendly, and scalable websites for the ATR and TRS division. This meant going granular with the website structure that makes its easily navigable, intuitive and empowers their marketing team. They sought a way to continually perform enhancements to implement new changes and improve the existing functionality.
On the customer front, they required a strong Oracle CRM integration, email notification for both customer and the marketing team, and several powerful integrations like Google reviews, Google analytics API, Converge Track API, and SEO integration and maintenance.
Adding a new manufacturer or product was earlier cumbersome for McGrath. However, Jade Global turned it around for the better, dynamically generating product and manufacturer pages whenever new product or manufacturer gets added in the product maintenance repository. Jade Global also introduced Concrete5 on page content edit functionality and custom-built editing functionality which helped erase any dependency they had on the development team for minute content changes.
I consider Jade Global more of an extension to our Marketing team versus vendor. They have proven to be great partners and care about the success of our business. I’m very impressed with their responsiveness and ability to find resolutions to customized web projects and issues.
Thank you for your dedication and help.
