Each month, more than 55,000 users at 1,200 global companies complete 135 million transactions to access 20 terabytes of data through our client’s secure web portal. The portal is a central part of the customer experience and after over a decade of service, it was time for an overhaul that addressed it shortcomings:

  • Unintuitive navigation and search functionality
  • Fragmented/inconsistent user experience across domains
  • Hard-to-find current and historical data
  • Outdated user interface
  • Limited personalization/customization of user experience and workflow
  • Limited content management capability
