SAMS are a safety and management company based in Manston, Kent. SAMS offer online courses, onsite or classroom training and management of events. Moving their digital business to Angle in 2013, we assisted in their transition and helped them to realise their strategy of expanding their business online.
To design and build a new front-end website to be used as shop front window, showcasing all their courses. In addition to this we received a brief to build a Learner Management System (LMS) to handle their courses, certification and to work in conjunction with bodies such as UKATA and CIEH.
As a separate project we were tasked to build a Document Manager so clients can access documentation easily and securely.
We start every project the same way – research, personas and goals. It focuses the mind and starts us off on the right foot.
You can see with an example to right the requirements the website needed to cover. As with all our projects we walked our client through the thought-provoking research to ensure they understood why we suggested the routes we did.
By presenting wireframes it quickly demonstrated how the site would navigate from a user's perspective. We presented wireframes to show our client the journey their clients would take. From finding their course, through to paying and starting a course.
It is paramount user journeys are well-thought out so you can capitalise on maximum sales and interest. Users like to have access to what they are looking for easily and quickly.
Responsive design is a necessity in today's digital and smartphone world. SAMS' website allows users to purchase and book their courses online. Most of SAMS' clients are constantly 'on the go'. Through our research undertaken we designed and built an easy-to-navigate responsive solution.
In addition to the front-end website we also built an LMS system to support the management of the user’s courses, thus allowing the user to view all courses purchased, which needed to be started and the ones for completion. The system was built specifically to support the courses platform, SCORM.
This is a system that SAMS can authorise access to. This allows the Police, councils and such like to access documents securely and in the knowledge that no unauthorised persons can access.
Met all of our demanding requirements and was produced within the identified time scales.
