01

The Challenge

The client’s objective was clear: to overhaul their online presence with a dynamic, feature-rich website that would effectively showcase the brand while laying the groundwork for future improvements, such as process automation and customer support. Although the Union had a broad vision and initial requirements, they needed domain expertise to refine these ideas into a specific development plan and bring them to life.

The project encountered the following key challenges:

  • Adapting to a flexible cooperation model that could accommodate the evolving nature of the project requirements.
  • The need for autonomous and proactive project management.

02

The Solution

To address the emerging challenges, Altamira provided a seasoned WordPress Senior Developer under a time-and-material (T&M) cooperation model, which perfectly aligned with the flexible project requirements. This setup enabled the developer to focus entirely on delivering a high-quality website tailored to the client’s specifications without requiring constant supervision. The T&M model facilitated a proactive approach to project management, allowing for adaptations to evolving requirements.

The delivered web solution was an advanced, user-friendly WordPress website designed to establish a strong online presence for the client. Furthermore, the website’s design and functionality reflect the brand’s values and offerings, ensuring an engaging and informative user experience for visitors.

Design

Visually guided navigation

The website’s homepage features several blocks, each representing different insurance offerings. These blocks are visually distinct, with intuitive icons, enabling simple navigation even for users unfamiliar with the Slovak language. Additionally, a dedicated assistance block provides direct access to support, highlighting the user-centric approach adopted by the website.

Engagement and information accessibility

The design of each section on the website prioritises the user’s journey. Informative sections address common insurance-related questions, while customer testimonials strategically structure the content layout and provide social proof. This approach aims to engage visitors and offer value at every interaction point throughout their browsing experience.

Brand consistency

The website maintains a consistent visual identity through the use of a cohesive colour palette and typography that aligns with the company’s branding guidelines. This visual harmony creates a sense of trust and professionalism. Interactive elements, such as buttons and links, are highlighted using the brand’s colours, effectively guiding the user’s attention to the next steps they can take.

Mobile responsiveness

Recognizing the growing prevalence of mobile users, the website was developed with a responsive design approach in mind. This ensures optimal accessibility across various devices and screen sizes, catering to users.

Multi-lingual support

Reflecting the brand’s inclusivity, the website offers multi-lingual support, an essential feature considering its outreach to foreigners in Slovakia. This eliminates language barriers and makes insurance services accessible to a broader audience.

This proactive approach not only addressed the client’s current requirements but also equipped the website with the flexibility to embrace future opportunities.
