WiltonBio is an exciting biotechnology company specialising in innovative and inexpensive environmental test assays and equipment. Knowing that their business is entering a growth phase as they introduce a range of new products they wanted a website that could grow and expand organically with them; one that would be capable of meeting their unknown future needs but also meet their immediate needs in a timely fashion. EAB was pleased to build and develop a content management system based on the latest community version of eZ Publish 5.2, with a clean modern design that allows WiltonBio to tell their story in a clear and attractive way. Our team worked closely with the client to launch the new website within three weeks from start to finish.
The website at present features product descriptions, blog and news sections with an RSS feed, and an intranet for internal documents.
Ever since the website was launched WiltonBio's editorial team have been busy adding and updating content to create a dynamic and colourful website that promotes their business and supports their growth.
Jeremy Thomas, WiltonBio's Commercial Manager, said "We have been very pleased to work with the EAB team to develop an online presence that reflects our positioning and that has the ability to grow with the business. The eZ Publish platform means that we can easily update the site to keep it fresh and current as well as integrating it with our email promotions and bookkeeping activities. EAB has proved to be highly responsive and focused on making the most effective use of our spend. They have adopted a pragmatic approach which when married with their knowledge and experience of the technology has delivered real added value. We would be very happy to recommend them."
EAB's new blog posts are now automatically tweeted!
We've used a third-party extension to integrate the Twitter API with eZ Publish and added URL shortening so that all our new blog posts will be tweeted automatically to our twitter feed. Another way for our clients and partners to keep up to date with developments at EAB.
At the same time, the RSS feed remains an alternative way of staying informed of new content in our blog.
Hi - you’ve found our new blog!
We’ve used the eZ Publish Content Management System to convert our existing news section into a blog. So now we can take advantage of blog functions like keyword tagging, trackbacks and comments.
You may be wondering; if this is a new blog how it is possible that the blog posts go back several years into the past?
Here’s how: with eZ Publish it is possible to manually transfer content from an existing area like 'news' or 'press releases' and convert each article into a blog post - with all the posts backdated.
This is something you cannot do with standard blogging software.
