The old website was implemented in 2008 and was no longer fit for purpose. The existing website was developed on a bespoke content management system and it was difficult to support. The in-house team had little control over maintenance, which was still carried out by the original supplier, impacting editorial governance, accuracy, and responsiveness. In addition, the website was no longer compatible with Internet Explorer.
Aspire Defence comprises of three related entities which have different responsibilities within the business, each entity required their own content management area and website. Our proposal was to develop a bespoke WordPress theme that adhered to branding guidelines and that was then set up into a multi site. By doing this it allows each entity to have their own content management area for the content relevant to them.
We can also spin up new websites using the same theme easily should the services offered grow in the near future.
We challenged White Fire with a complex brief: deliver one website which meets the needs of three separate businesses. White Fire worked responsively with us throughout the project and we are delighted with the end product. The modern, interactive design and intuitive build have given us an impressive level of flexibility, responsiveness, and ownership of our content. Joe and Becki deliver excellent customer support, with a speedy resolution of any ‘bugs’ and technical queries raised.

The team can build up landing pages using branded components set by us that were defined in the art direction process such as add ‘call to action buttons’ ‘feature boxes’ ‘testimonials’ ‘sliding boxes’ ‘banners’ ‘nav boxes’ and other components easily within the admin panel.
The admin panel allows you to reorder sections and build up the page accordingly based on content using sections and post elements.
