Becoming the go-to site for Eindhoven  

Eindhoven365 sought the help of Aviva Solutions, a full-service digital agency, Kentico Xperience Gold Partner and Kentico Xperience Quality Expert. Together, they agreed that technically and functionally, Kentico Xperience 13 with its commerce capabilities is the perfect solution to help the marketing firm achieve its goals.  


Challenges

Eindhoven365 wanted a more centralized approach to marketing, content management and commerce and the ability to optimize every touchpoint with personalized content. As they knew how important website performance was in delivering a good user experience, they also made this a key priority.  

Solution

The Aviva team started by determining which digital solutions were required and how to shape the UX strategy. They selected:

  • Kentico Xperience 13
  • Aviva Solutions Starterkit & Components
  • Azure Search
  • React
  • .Net Core.  

Kentico Xperience 13 provided the centralized approach to all things marketing and e-commerce that Eindhoven365 needed. The website was designed to leverage all its powerful online marketing features: Campaigns, Contact Management, A/B Testing, Personalization, Email Marketing, Marketing Automation, Web Analytics, and Personas.

Content editors can self-sufficiently leverage reusable components and widgets to personalize marketing pages and they can collect first-party data to optimize every touchpoint.

To extend the functionalities even further, the implementation team chose to integrate the platform with several other technologies including online payment provider Mollie, Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics 4, Google Maps, Soundcloud and YouTube. Integration with Azure Search enables extremely efficient visitor searches.

The new website was developed using the .Net Core development framework as it focuses on increasing performance.

Design

The Aviva team collaborated with Eindhoven-based creative design agency George&Harrison on the look and feel of the website, as well as a new structure which makes content much faster and easier to find. Each page has its own vibe, with colors selected from a carefully curated brand palette, but still fits the overall identity of the site.  

The website was released during Dutch Design Week, one of Eindhoven’s busiest periods.
