TURNER CONSTRUCTION COMPANY
We built Turner Construction’s public website using SharePoint and SlamCMS. It provides a fully faceted and locally “flavored” search of their project portfolio with all project data (including images and HTML descriptions) managed in SAP.
When you visit the site, we use your IP address to geo-locate you and serve up a dynamically customized site, “flavored” with local projects, contacts and news items that are managed by that local office’s administrator.
Each of their specializations and services (from the our experience mega menu) is a localized, dynamically created page with the best projects demonstrating that area of expertise.
All projects are managed in SAP.
Their entire catalog of published projects is managed in SAP, integrated into the site and intuitively filterable/browsable using faceted search.
Not much more to say here – all project data (including the images) is managed within SAP.
The careers section of the site incorporates pages hosted by a third party. One of our specialties is making dispirit systems feel like one user experience.
Here we provided a JS injection script to allow the careers provider to easily “grab” the navigation from the main site, including the user-specific custom functionality.
The first panel “Marketing Data” is an SAP plugin that AWS created that allows Turner employees to upload images and edit HTML description text, all with SAP but connected to the site (including an approval workflow in sharepoint).
WHAT WE DID:
- Solution Design
- Interactive Strategy
- Site architecture and User Experience
- Web Implementation and Maintenance
- Technical Integration (SAP and third party careers system)
- Usability testing
- Process and Project Management
Turner Construction wanted to use their impressive portfolio of projects to “Show not tell” their immense skill and experience but they didn’t want to have to manage their projects in two places, SAP and the website. The new site needed to consistently apply the brand while meeting the local business units’ needs of “being local” and of controlling what content to highlight. SlamCMS let us provide a truly faceted search and use geo-location to locally “flavor” the site, an SAP “bolt on” tool allows all project data to be managed in SAP.
Turner already managed all of their projects in SAP albeit without images and didn’t want to have to manage their data in two places. We engineered an SAP plugin in that allowed for the management of project photography directly within SAP and then pulled in all project data to the website and allowed it to be browsed using a powerful faceted search.
To make the site feel personal, we used geolocation code to customize the site to “flavor” the user experience, showing relevant projects, news, contact information based on where the user is located.
