Barbers Rural are an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors, Rural Estate Agents and Rural Service Professionals based in Market Drayton, North Shropshire; a well established, long standing and highly respected business in Shropshire and surrounding areas.
Barbers Rural were embarking on a new branding exercise and felt that their existing website could be improved upon and used to more prominently promote their extensive range of Services and dedicated team of professionals.
Siruss worked extensively with the Barbers Rural team during the discovery and scoping processes, to design and develop a website solution that perfectly fits the new brand.
The Siruss design and development team worked with both the property side and the professional services side of Barbers Rural to fully understand the client's requirements. Siruss then created a stunning new mobile first design based around the client's existing brand to promote the individual sectors of the business and simplify navigation across all devices.
The decision was made to develop the new Barbers Rural website in Drupal 8.
Particular attention was paid to the administration of the both the property and team member sections. Issues with the previous website were addressed and an administration interface was developed to enable staff members to quickly and simply manage website content. This significantly improved the manageability of content, reducing the administration time accordingly.
Multiple content types were used to simplify the management of the individual content in each sector, where individual visual layouts were required.
URL redirects from the old website to the new website were set up by the Siruss SEO team prior to deploying the new website. Particular attention was paid to requirements from the clients independant marketing agency to ensure a seamless transition to live..
