New UK Intranet design and development
Ipsos MORI migrated their existing SharePoint 2007 Intranet to SharePoint 2013 and required a new design for the new intranet launch.
A new design was applied to the entire site structure for a cleaner more modular look.
The homepage was developed to pull events and tailored news from across the site allowing for a more focussed and engaging interface.
The existing page template was adapted to allow existing pages to snap into the new branding with little or no effort from content editors.
Features included a fluid layout, collapsible menus, animated news features, dynamic data driven carousels and easy to populate custom web-parts.
The site launch coincided with the UK headquarters moving offices and had a strict and very tight deadline. The new portal was designed and built ahead of time and the launch was a complete success.
I worked with Marty directly for six years, during that time he was a key member of the development team that he then went on to lead. Marty's grasp of web development technologies, coupled with his ability to talk clearly and concisely to clients and stakeholders, made him a valuable member of the team. Flexible to changing situations, Marty's warm management style was popular in the team, and he implemented new standards and processes that have been of great benefit. I would wholehearted recommend Marty for any development or technical management role.
I have worked with Marty for close to 10 years now. He is always creative and determined to make things work in a smooth and elegant way. Multi skilled he is able to easily take on complex challenges and turn them into reality. He is an valuable member of any team.
