Cygnet and Charity IT Leaders

Breaking free from a legacy CMS and delivering a new website in weeks.

The challenge

Due to an upcoming licence renewal Charity IT Leaders, needed their core website rebuilt in a timeframe of just a few weeks. Not only did we manage to come in on time and budget, but there was some capacity left over for adding all the bells and whistles.

The solution

Cygnet broke the existing page structure down into a series of reusable components. We then used Wordpress the Flynt page builder to recreate the existing pages and content. By leveraging statically generated pages and a CDN we were able to deliver a lightning fast website in record time.

Measures of success

  • Improve the user experience

    The new website is much easier to navigate and find information. Members can now easily find the information they need and sign up for events.

  • Streamline content management

    Editors can now easily create and manage content using a page builder and a range of custom modules.

  • Load quickly on a range of devices

    The new website is lightning fast and scores 100% on Google Core Web Vitals desktop.

Stretch goal

Given the tight timeframe we set aside some contingency to build requirments that were discoverd during the project. One of these was a "Jobs Board" which allowed members to highlight vacancies in their organisations.

During the first 6 days, over 10 jobs were posted to the new jobs board.

Client feedback

"I love working with Pete and Nick at Cygnet Digital. From the first meeting they really understood CITL and what we’re about. They’re incredibly positive about what can be done, very creative about solutions, yet always realistic. I never have any surprises about costs or timeframes, they’re completely upfront about what will be needed and how long it will take. I completely trust their advice. They put client needs first, and will give you the best solution, even if that means they lose out on a fee. Although they stay on task, they also have an eye to the wider objectives, and have really helped map out our digital journey. They are truly partners in our organisation, and I have no doubt we’ll be working together for a long time to come as our organisation continues to grow and develop."
