New global website for Capital Safety Training
Capital Safety is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of fall protection, confined space, and rescue equipment for oil and gas, construction, utilities, wind energy, transportation, telecommunication, mining, and general industries.
With a number of disparate training websites under the Capital umbrella, we were briefed to create an all encompassing global site that allowed the client to manage separate sub-sites for each country. Traditionally, the client had used Microsoft Sharepoint, but had found limitations in the web front end that were over complex to allow internal updates by the client. In addition, budget was a factor with Sharepoint development being cost prohibitive to develop.
We presented a solution using our Business Catalyst platform that would allow all sites to be managed within one admin which came in on budget. Building around 63 Web Apps in BC allowed us to segregate the information so that each country would have their own areas to update within the CMS.
In addition, we have also integrated with an external training management system using their API and streamed training course data back to this system using the BC API to avoid duplicate entry across systems.
See the live site here, the UK site is live while French and German sites still link to old sites.
A course overview page allows users to drill down to find courses that match their specific needs, each course detail page automatically loads data from other custom Web Apps such as location and dates.
