Powerlink initially sought our expertise in user experience and user interface design. Delivering on these designs, and having developed a working relationship between JSA and Powerlink, we were invited to tender for the development of the corporate site as well. Leveraging our abilities in Drupal 8 web development and our reputation as an Acquia Community Partner, Powerlink engaged us with the project.
Powerlink’s previous corporate website had not been fully reviewed since 2011 and was due for an update and rebrand. The site was seen to be content heavy and ineffective at presenting large amounts of information in a way that was engaging or easy to digest. Powerlink also sought to provide greater transparency to stakeholders, especially landholders, to search and discover whether easements had been planned near to, or on, their property.
Although the site has only recently become live, we are confident that site users will find it to be far more accessible than before, with navigation and structural design having a strong UX focus. The Powerlink team have expressed that there has been great feedback from stakeholders as well as their internal team. Finally, ongoing training has been provided to ensure that any content updates in the future are done with ease.
