Quite some time ago, we threw together a VERY basic website per a customer’s request. BOH wanted to get out of their existing website commitment, so they said to use the same images they had on their old website and just get it live asap, and then they will upgrade it in a couple months. So we did it!
Here is initial basic site conversion:
Once we got the basic site up and running, they came to our design team, explaining that they wanted their site to have a wow factor! So our creative director put together a fantastic mockup, and even flew out to South Dakota to get some awesome on-the-job imagery. Bar Over Hat wanted people to know EXACTLY what they do, and why they are leaders in their field. And we delivered!
Here is their new website:
Probably one of the best features about this website, is the live video reel on the home page. We were able to capture some great footage, and add it into the banner (Yes people, this will soon become a feature on the SquareHook tool-adding video into banners!)
Our design team not only captured beautiful photos that accentuated some the BOH team extracting and hauling and disposing of oilfield water extraction, but we created interesting infographics that narrated their story and other bits about their company.
Bar Over Hat was pleased with the images, and all the customization that was included in their site redesign. Site visitors create a stronger connection with the company when images aren’t just stock photos. Have you ever seen a stock photo used on more than one website? We certainly have. Don’t get us wrong, stock photos are great, but if you can do a photoshoot, you shouldn’t have to worry about seeing your images elsewhere. When a client can put a face to a name, it’s really nice to know who is working with you. On the Employment page all the images are actual, current employees. We just love that!
Although our initial site conversion provided everything a site visitor needs, (information on the company, several ways to contact BOH team, etc) BOH wanted their site to be more attractive and interesting looking. Not only that, but they wanted some content writing done to illustrate their company’s value. We think it was a very successful redesign!
If you like your site, but you want to LOVE it, contact us! We love to transform and upgrade a site to reflect your business’ quality.
Everyone has access to the Internet, right? But what about Intranet? Wait….there’s a difference? We can all agree that the names should have been slightly different, as to not confuse the masses, but what are you gonna do?
Let’s explain first, what an Intranet is. It is a network belonging specifically to an organization or company, that is only accessible by it’s internal employees, members, or other administration. It can look just like any ol’ website, but it has a security surrounding it, protecting others from accessing it. So let’s say, your company has a website, but there is a special area you can log into, where you can access your pay stubs, company policies, etc–that is an INTRANET.
Intranets are great because you’re able to share information amongst a certain group (like a company). Oh, and it is more secure. That’s always nice.
We just recently built this into our tool, for larger businesses that really need it for their company and employees.
You can customize a page, as to whether or not a certain role can access it or not. You can assign users (employees for example) to a role, like HR, Admin, or Employee.
What’s different from using SquareHook for an Intranet vs using a home grown internet? Our tool is ready to go. You can create your companies intranet and be up and running now. You can control access and build your intranet with all the power of a content management system. You can also customize and adjust information, charts, table and communication without a programmer.
In addition to an company intranet, you can have a customer intranet. With our e-commerce engine you can even create a unique shopping experience for customers. You can provide a platform for discounts easily.
Basically, we’re saying if you’re looking for a functionality custom to your company/work, we have a fabulous solution for you! Contact us if you’d like to learn more about customizing your website!
