The Challenge

Mitie is the UK’s facilities management & professional services company. Its c50,000 employees, provide infrastructure consultancy, facilities management, property management, energy, and healthcare services.

Mitie came to us seeking a UX led redesign and migration to WordPress from Kentico, whilst improving the site structure, information architecture and navigation. With a number of different user personas, Mitie wanted to ensure that it is easier for all users to find information they need on the site to support the entirety of the customer journey, and future digital marketing and inbound lead generation.

The Solution

We kicked off the project with a thorough strategy, discovery and definition phase involving all the key business stakeholders to create a streamlined and clear strategy for the project, align stakeholders and ensure the project could be delivered against its strategic objectives.

Discovery workshops

With a number of cross industry clients and personas who use the site, we began the design stage by focusing on clear user personas and journey mapping. This was followed by work on content, information architecture and an improved UX.

UX

The 93digital team then focused on creating the wireframes for a refreshed design with a simple and intuitive UX. This improves clarity of user journeys, and helps the different user personas ‘discover’ more about Mitie, supporting marketing, lead generation, sales enablement and talent acquisition.

As Mitie is a leader in its field, with a number of awards and strong credentials, we ensured the website is able to showcase these clearly, positioning Mitie as an innovative company and supporting the sales journey for the different user personas.

WordPress development

We built a powerful content hub with advanced filtering and search for users to access whitepapers, case studies, videos and other content, tailored across services and sectors.

The website is integrated with Mitie’s investor relations platform and data, showing live share price details. We also built employee and office directories, integrated with the Google Maps API.

CMS

Mitie wanted to embrace the open source power of WordPress, and so we delivered a flexible CMS fit for future content publishing and digital marketing, migrating away from Kentico. This made the site easier and faster to manage for non-technical content and marketing teams.

Marketing automation integration

One of the big focuses for Mitie was to improve lead generation and understand the sales journey better through the website. To aid this, the website was built to support integration with marketing automation platform HubSpot, and we ensured the website was trackable via Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics.
