Work » Shredall & SDS - The Website

A robust and secure CMS system allowing for multiple dynamic content types

We chose Concrete5 to create a robust and easy-to-use website for SDS.

The challenge

Shredall and SDS are one of the UK's largest independently owned shredding, document storage and document scanning companies. They provide a complete information-management service, from shredding and recycling to document scanning and storage.

Our challenge? To help take Shredall forward from an old legacy OMS website to a robust, secure and flexible Content Management System. The site needed to make the process of requesting a quote simple and accessible for every customer, while also giving a clear distinction between the many service offerings. It also needed to showcase the Shredall profile. There was also an additional scope of work to design and integrate a number of newsletter templates into the website for use with MailChimp and to create bespoke infographics for each of the business services that could be used for SEO and outreach.

What we did

First, we presented Shredall with Concrete5 as an option for their new CMS. We recommended the platform over other CMS solutions such as WordPress as it is far more secure and also allows for inline editing on the frontend, meaning the marketing team at Shredall can edit content and imagery on the site without needing to go into the backend. It also allowed for us to create dynamic content types for testimonials, videos, gallery, news, blog, case studies and services. 

These dynamic content types allow the service pages on the site to automatically pull through relevant testimonials, videos and news. We also integrated newsletter templates designed in-house to Shredall’s new site through MailChimp. Shredall opted for a bespoke homepage too, which meant they were able to fully plan the customer journey.

This was a large project for our business and Absolute made it a smooth process. Everything was done on time and the site is exactly what we imagined it would be. Everyone involved at the agency have impressed us - they are committed, professional and on hand if needed.
