  • Replace it’s outdated, inefficient and inflexible content management system platform: create a new page meant creating individual assets for each PDF and image to be used on that page. That could mean creating 10+ assets before even beginning the actual page build
  • Responsive capabilities: inability to easily create responsive websites and stay current with technology. (Ascensus had to build and maintain two versions of each site to cover both desktop and mobile versions)
  • Improve clients' online experience by presenting information to any device in a simple, quick and intuitive way
  • Ability to plug-in to existing Content delivery network (CDN)
  • Alignment with current architecture infrastructure
