An upgraded website & improved efficiency in internal operations
Cars 2 initially approached us with a site that had a network of legacy stock control systems, which were shoehorned into an old wordpress build. After taking the business through a discovery session, we completely re-built the site from the ground up, creating a stock management extension which pushes out all their used car stock to any 3rd party locations. We also developed a complex integration into Autotrader, which requires a careful balance of stock control.
The result? Increased efficiency within their internal operations, allowing the Cars 2 team to focus on driving the business forward.
Crafting a complex new website & boosting performance
The leading car leasing agency approached us after their previous agency was unable to provide them with the necessary resources to enable them to move forward in their business.
We undertook a complete website rebuild and migration from Craft 2 to Craft 3, leveraging AWS services and Elastic Search functionality to drastically improve user experience and site speed.
The result? Their website pages dropped from a 15 second load time down to 150miliseconds. Plus, they benefited from a huge boost in search engine visibility and a Google Page Speed performance score of 99/100.
Website Upgrade & Strategic Marketing Campaign
Having worked with UK Car & Motorbike dealership franchise, Colin Appleyard, for a number of years, we recently upgraded their existing website to mutli-site build. Despite the complex processes around the multiple sources and API connections, we’ve been able to provide the new site in an easy-to-use format, which integrates into all business management processes - allowing for fine tune levels of stock visibility and sales management.
The new website, combined with a strategic marketing campaign across SEO, PPC and PR, has led to an incredible 133% increase in enquiries year on year.
Blue Mantis is our go-to support for web development. The work they've done on our website has made a huge difference in the way we are able to promote and administer our products. Their understanding of the Motor industry also makes the development less challenging
Working with Blue Mantis has allowed us to grow the business in a streamline, targeted approach. Having seen both of our businesses grow during our time together, it has made for a really refreshing environment, where bouncing new ideas off each other has come common place. Without having that relationship in place and creating the spark to that environment, I am sure that we wouldn't be where we are today.
We have worked with Blue Mantis for a few years since we built the new NFDA website. The team is very professional, friendly and easy to work with.
