Sanlam UK

Implemented by Crafted, United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

Sanlam’s rich heritage in providing financial products and services spans over 100 years. Following a customer insights project, Sanlam UK wanted to turn that insight into action and commissioned Crafted to deliver its new website. To drive more enquiries and to position Sanlam UK as an industry leader for financial information, it was necessary to deliver a fast, secure, reliable site that supports a client portal and provides a high level of content flexibility and a digital brochure builder. The website utilizes a broad range of Kentico features, including Custom Widgets, Form Builder, and the Categorization feature for the “help me” section allowing users to access the information most relevant for them.


Implemented by i3 Digital Ltd, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

With more than 75 years of experience in the delivery of heating oil and propane business, Dead River Company operates via a network of 50 locally managed offices with more than 1,000 employees. As the website and e-commerce engine had to be integrated with Heatable’s Dead River E3 ERP and customer delivery systems, i3 Digital created a custom business logic layer with tailored API. Customers are now able to easily check oil prices in their area, and order, pay and book delivery in a matter of a few clicks. The Email Marketing features are connected to a third-party SMS engine and associated push notification module for in-app communications to facilitate multi-channel communications and push marketing.

Alzheimer’s Association

Implemented by BlueModus, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. They needed a web portal to serve a diverse audience, as well as manage more than 75 different local chapter sites. With initial digital strategy and design work provided by BlueKey, BlueModus provided a full technical implementation that included many Kentico features, including robust out-of-the-box support for more than 1,000 user roles and permissions, configured to securely support both the Alzheimer's Association home office as well as the extensive network of chapter sites within the same system. Kentico localization features were also used to generate a Spanish language mirror site.

Mullican Flooring

Implemented by Ntara, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Since 1985, Mullican Hardwood Flooring has focused on delivering best-in-class products. To continue doing so, they needed to move toward digital transformation. Thanks to an integration with Ucommerce, Mullican became ready to scale for future e-commerce, with all their product data in one, organized place. Based on the results of the nSight customer segmentation marketing survey, Ntara segmented personas based on gender, age, income, and region to create unique user paths and customer journeys. Robust analytics were implemented to start tracking user behavior, identify areas for optimization, and plan for future site phases.

Activate Learning

Implemented by Spindogs, United Kingdom
Kentico Gold Partner

Activate Learning is an educational group comprising secondary, further, and higher education, apprenticeship and workforce training, consultancy and commercial business. The purpose of their new website is to promote the group and its colleges to key target audiences, and to be a significant student recruitment and commercial tool, integrating with Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution and other digital marketing tools (e.g., dotmailer for email campaigns). Kentico features help Spindogs to deliver a complex website; customized Kentico Smart Search index concentrates data from both the course header and occurrence page types, and Custom Forms ensures the right data is imported to Dynamics CRM.

Bandera Electric Cooperative

Implemented by, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

Bandera Electric Cooperative (BEC) is a power cooperative based out of Bandera, Texas. They were looking to modernize the website to be more customer friendly and serve as an improved lead generation tool for the sales team. One area of improvement for the site was click distance. BEC stressed the importance of the user getting the information they needed in less time than it currently took on the existing website. Through the use of personalization on the site, Bandera is able to present pertinent information to specific user groups, in order to get the users to relevant information more efficiently and to generate more quality leads from users browsing the site.

Blue Rhino

Implemented by BlueModus, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

As the leading brand of consumer propane exchange in the United States, Blue Rhino’s ready-to-grill propane tanks are available at more than 45,000 retail stores. They needed a responsive platform where consumers could learn about Blue Rhino propane exchange and find a propane location near them. BlueModus overhauled their popular location finder feature, using different technical approaches for desktop and mobile versions of the site. Kentico’s GEO IP was implemented in conjunction with an integration with Mapbox, to provide location-finder technology and map out retailer locations. Twilio was also integrated to allow users to have locations and directions texted to them.

Crisis Prevention Institute

Implemented by thunder::tech, USA
Kentico Gold Partner

The Crisis Prevention Institute’s mission is to reduce the likelihood and severity of workplace violence incidents. The aim of their new website was to create a new user experience for both public and private users of the website. The prior site was aging infrastructure that no longer could accommodate their growth and plans for the future. At the beginning, it was challenging to connect Kentico to a custom legacy development in their former e-commerce platform. The upgrade was necessary and thunder::tech learned a lot about how to integrate custom code with standard out-of-the-box, Kentico. The website is built within the Kentico Portal Engine and is integrated with Marketo.
