asioso supports TK Elevator in the modernization and further development of their website. Due to the close, professional and cooperative collaboration, asioso together with TK Elevator succeeded in quickly developing joint solutions and suggestions for improvement in order to further enhance the website.
Until now, TK Elevator was working with an evolved CMS that did not allow the company any flexibility and improvements were very difficult to implement. They were also unable to take full advantage of the opportunities to showcase their products on the website. The contact forms, which are important for lead generation, did not allow for customization. Thus, the need for agile structures and stable technical foundations arose in order to create a higher usability as well as a faster time to market. The functionality of the existing modules also needed to be improved to create more flexibility.
With the optimization of the existing CMS FirstSpirit, improvements can now be made more quickly. Designed for more efficient, editorial processes and faster time-to-market. By replacing the old code, the CMS has now been significantly modernized. It is also now easier and faster to customize the designs and look of the website. As part of this, a rebranding took place in 2021 and TK Elevator got a new logo and brand. TKE also needed to be represented on the website as quickly as possible. The front-end was replaced and everything in the background (the CMS and all functions and components) remained the same. All country websites and also the global website were adapted to the new branding within a short time. Product pages were improved according to the latest UX criteria. Contact forms can now be designed completely flexibly and meet the requirements of lead generation. And finally, the new news module allows stories to be played out globally and locally, supporting TK Elevator's content sharing concept on the one hand and improving SEO ranking on the other.
