A new website for CBS Security & Remote Monitoring Ltd. Although CBS had a website already they felt it was time for an update and they were ready to take it to the next level.
CBS found Pedleyonline via our website. They approached us with their ideas for a new website and what they were looking to achieve. We visited their site in Coleshill, talked through objectives, provided a proposal with costings and once approved we scheduled in the web build.
The new website uses their already established business logo and the image portrayed is professional. They have incorporated their existing website content such as Installation Services, Guarding Services and Projects. New additions include new content such as the Gallery and Careers page. New functionality includes dynamic content, changing images and Lightbox functionality within the gallery. The layout and organisation has been improved with intuitive navigation and a responsive design meaning the website displays according to the device being used to view it.
The home page is wide screen with a horizontal menu and a dynamic changing image holder. Further static image panels provide alternative navigation options to take viewers to key areas of the site. Footer links also provide navigation.
The Installation Services page provides an index and hierarchy to further individual pages for each of the Installations Services on offer from CBS. Examples include CCTV, Access Control, Intruder Alarms and Door Entry Systems. These are represented in panels with text headings and accompanied by stylized, symbolic graphics for each service. Individual pages for each service allow for more content. A separate page details their Guarding Services.
The Projects section of the website is designed in a blog format with a featured image and headline text shown for each project organised in chronological order. The viewer can select ‘Read more’ to access the full page where they can read all of the content available. This area of the site is completely editable by the website owner meaning they can make changes to existing projects if required or create new ones as they come on-board.
The Gallery is a collection of images of example security installations. Images are displayed in a Lightbox format which means they expand on screen in a larger size with ‘next’ and ‘previous’ to scroll through the series of images.
The News section is also in a blog format and again editable by CBS. News items may include text, images and links to other relevant content.
A downloadable application form is featured on the Careers page. Applicants can access a pdf application form for completion. CBS will use the Careers page to advertise their current vacancies.
Contact Us is a secure online contact form, full contact details and a Google map.
The website has been build using good practice on-page search engine optimisation techniques. A sizable website with great opportunity for expansion. The content is high quality, unique and relevant. We feel the website is completely on message, informative and professional.
We look forward to working with CBS Security to maintain and develop their website in the future.
