Aspiring enhanced User Experience
Ready Logistics came up with the idea to partially redesign the website’s visual presence to improve their users’ experience. The website required an audit of theme and plugins for smoother operations. It also needed to be hosted on the performant and secured host of WordPress VIP Go infrastructure.
Re-designing Ready Logistics
rtCamp’s creative team redesigned the web pages while maintaining the brand guidelines. During the redesign process, optimized UI/UX was ensured for better lead generation.
rtCamp started the project by setting up a new staging site with all the plugins updated to the latest version. As the plan included this site to be hosted on WP VIP, all unnecessary plugins needed a cleanup.
Each plugin was audited and only the necessary ones needed to keep the site functional were retained. Every database table was vetted, and redundant data was removed.
Shifting to WordPress VIP Go
rtCamp executed the migration process by re-importing the content and database from the old server to the new server. Thereafter, moved Ready Logistics from Liquid Web to the WordPress VIP infrastructure.
Moved custom form to Gravity Forms
rtCamp moved the custom-built HTML form, used for Get a Quote functionality, to Gravity Forms. It allowed customization and styling options with an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. This was not possible with vanilla HTML forms. Features for data validation, conditional formatting and security vastly improved the form submission workflows.
Initially, an integration with Salesforce Marketing Cloud was provided through Zapier. It enabled automated syncing of form entries, eliminating the need for manual data entry. This reduced errors and saved time for website administrators.
Implementing integration with Salesforce
Eventually, the Zapier layer was removed, and syncing executes directly with Salesforce data extensions. It happens with our Gravity Forms-Salesforce integration add-on deployed. This further streamlines the process and reduces the risk of errors or delays.
By leveraging the data from Salesforce CRM, the website gets insights about lead generation and conversion rates. It helps to track the effectiveness of marketing campaigns and other initiatives.
Improved Lead Generation with a Performant website
After the revamp, Ready Logistics saw a 49% increase in lead submissions, comparing the pre- and post-migration year periods.
After migration and redesign, the website’s performance improved. rtCamp monitored the performance benchmark with the previous platform & compared it with the site after migration.
According to a survey, 47% of website visitors expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less. An optimized UI/UX with speedy page loading makes for a better web experience.
