Salaam Gateway aims to be a leading news and insights platform. The task was to re-design their website. And wanted to showcase their information in a more dynamic and consistent flow.
The main focus was to highlight the halal industry, islamic finance, and islamic lifestyle. Over the years, Salaam Gateway has gathered a lot of information, generated reports, and covered several news and events. It is about displaying such varied content and highlighting the importance of each.
• New website for the client Salaam Gateway
• Responsiveness to all platform sizes
• CMS for receiving, storing and managing user information along with managing the content of the website
In the initial phase of this project, our team of expert digital and web consultants worked closely with Salaam Gateway to understand their goals and requirements. We conducted several meetings to gather information about their business and target audience, and to identify their key pain points with their current website.
Based on the information our expert consultants gathered during the initial phase, our expert design consultants created sitemaps, wireframes and prototypes to outline these designs for the client and present them for client feedback and approval, made adjustments as necessary to ensure that the final UI UX design met their needs.
Once the client had approved the designs, our development consultants stepped in and began building the website using the latest web development technologies and techniques. We incorporated responsive design principles to ensure that the website worked seamlessly across all devices and platforms, and we added features and functionality to make the website more engaging and user-friendly.
Before launching the website, our talented and skilled QA consultants conducted extensive testing to ensure that all features and functionality worked correctly and that the website was optimized for performance, speed and security.
Finally, we launched the redesigned Salaam Gateway website, making sure that all stakeholders were satisfied with the end result. We provided training and support to Salaam Gateway's team so that they could easily manage and update the website going forward.
Throughout the project, we maintained close communication with Salaam Gateway, providing regular updates and progress reports. We also worked collaboratively with their team to ensure that the final product met their specific needs and requirements.
Overall, our expert VII Tech consultants developed and re-designed an up-to-date and user friendly website. The design suits all devices being a desktop, mobile, and tablet which is essential to their target audience’s variety of outlets. The use of a modular grid and colour-coding added a sense of structure to the website. The news and insight articles became the main focus and encourages the visitors to read and engage.
Our challenge for this project was integrating the new website with third party tools. Salaam Gateway required the website to integrate with various third party tools for analytics, email marketing, and social media. We ensured that the integration was seamless and the website could effectively communicate with these tools.
Another challenge was content organization. The website had a vast amount of content which was disorganized, making it difficult for users to navigate and find information. We tackled this challenge by conducting an extensive content audit and organizing the content into categories. This helped users to easily find the information they were looking for.
