No winter blizzard can prevent our partners working endlessly on growing and updating their projects. From tailor-made solution producers, to charity organizations, these projects vary in complexity and design, yet they oscillate around satisfied customers and visitors. 

Oakville Hospital Foundation

Implemented by A.K.A. New Media Inc., USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Oakville Hospital Foundation (OHF) works with the Oakville (Ontario, Canada) community to support Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH). Oakville residents depend on their local hospital to deliver the healthcare they need. OHF has been a client of A.K.A. since 2002 and this is the second full redesign and redevelopment of their website on Kentico. Goals of the new Oakville Hospital Foundation website redesign included establishing an online platform to attract, convert, and deepen the relationship with its target audience, including its supporters, event participants, partners, and donors. The website was also integrated with MailChimp for e-newsletter tracking.

The mission of InnovAge is to allow seniors to live life on their terms – by aging in place, in their own homes and communities, for as long as safely possible. Based in Denver, Colorado, InnovAge serves more than 3,600 seniors in 4 states. The broad feature set of their new Kentico website, designed by fellow Solution Partner BlueKey, solved many of InnovAge's issues, particularly in their marketing and lead-generation efforts. Comparing the overall traffic from the month prior to launch to the month after launch, there has been a 51% increase in page views, 77% increase in pages per session, 65% greater length of session duration, and 30% lower bounce rate.


Implemented by Brilliance Business Solutions, USA
Kentico Bronze Partner

SurfaceWorks is a furniture design agency and tables are the centerpiece of their world. Their new website needed to be mobile responsive and go hand in hand with their overall rebranding. The site required integration with Bayview’s custom PIM for product and sales rep data to eliminate dual maintenance.  It is also integrated with an existing Order Status DB and external user management app to allow employees, reps, and customers to view orders and shipments. This allowed for data integration of 450 products, 300 attributes, 120 sales reps, 300 customers, and 2,000 images. Traffic increased by 16%, time on site by 36% (on mobile 13.53%, on tablet 22%, on desktop 34%), and organic search traffic by 7%.

Rio Tinto Borates - Agriculture

Implemented by Refactored, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Refactored is in the first of a multi-phased project for Rio Tinto, helping to transform their US Borax website (and market sites) into Kentico-EMS based, purpose-driven, content-oriented websites. They were brought in to work with Rio Tinto this spring to begin the effort with an initial focus on their Agriculture market website, which represents a large portion of the revenues for Borax. Refactored updated the website architecture, design, content, and video, and implemented Kentico EMS functionalities—leveraged community registration, newsletter/blog subscriptions, personalization, and localized content (English and Portuguese today and soon Spanish and Asian languages), to bring users closer to the brand.

Australian Red Cross

Implemented by Zeroseven, Australia
Kentico Gold Partner

Australian Red Cross saves lives and supports people before and after disasters strike. The goal of the website redesign was to enable editors to have full control over their content and display, and give them the ability to build and manage their pages and campaigns quickly and easily. Kentico’s ability to build pages from templates using Content Widgets has given Red Cross the freedom they need to create pages the way they want, with the confidence that the whole site will remain easy to use and accessibly compliant. At the moment, early A/B testing and Personalization tests are being investigated for particular sites.


Implemented by Carbon8, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

BAND-IT is a thriving 80-year-old manufacturer of stainless steel band clamps based in Denver. Carbon8 created a robust messaging platform based on the idea that BAND-IT's eponymous clamps were, in fact, "Essentially Everywhere”. The main goal of the website was to attract more organic traffic and generate quality leads. The site makes heavy use of page relationships, custom page templates and widgets, and custom tables for lead routing (based on user input - industry, country, etc.). In the first 60 days after the site launched, the website has seen a 99% increase in overall traffic, 432% increase in organic traffic, and 43% increase in page views.

Local One - I.A.T.S.E

Implemented by iMedia, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Local One is the premier stagehand union of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. The union workers are responsible for Broadway shows, concerts at Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall, productions at The Metropolitan Opera and throughout Lincoln Center, and the broadcasts from CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, and PBS. The webmaster and other editorial staff required more control of the website’s content via an updated information architecture and responsive design. Within Kentico’s Newsletter functionality, multiple monthly email alerts are sent to more than 3000 members. A dynamic email is easy for content editors to update accordingly and then send to the unique contact group of members.


Implemented by Create Studios, Australia
Kentico Gold Partner

EG Funds Management is a leading Australia real estate fund management specialist established in 2000. They have more than $2.4 billion in assets under management and a nimble, dynamic team that identifies new investment. Their former WordPress website failed to keep pace with the growth and maturity of the firm.  The new website is more aligned with the brand and makes it easier for content editors to manage content in a simple, structured way without the need to be technical. The site also integrates with the firm’s Salesforce setup and email marketing platform. Since the launch of the new website, page views have gone up by 12% and the average session duration more than doubled.

Comet Group

Implemented by netzkern AG, Germany

The COMET Group is a global-leading Swiss technology firm. For nearly 70 years, they have been developing and producing innovative high-tech components and systems based on x-ray, radio frequency, and ebeam technology. The result of this project is a fusion of five different websites of multiple offers and target groups. They were looking for a platform with which they were able to meet the different requirements. Kentico Widgets offer a flexibility in presenting companies, products, and applications.

Kings Theatre

Implemented by Positive Technology, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

This website was created to support the change in branding and ownership of the theatre plus support the venue as a go-to destination. ATG as the new owners of the venue wanted to modernize the website with a truly responsive front end. To meet performance requirements, the website is deployed on the Azure platform. Major challenges were centered on launching the site within the client’s timeframe, with a geographically-spread team. Kentico Content Workflows were utilized for managing the sign-off processes between the US and UK teams. An average visit duration has risen more than 100% from December 2016 to November 2017, bounce rate decreased by 42%, and unique visitors have risen by 50%.
