What GCF wanted
In the ever-changing technology sector, GCF wanted a future-proof membership portal that would support the development of custom platform functionality in the long-term. The scale and sensitivity of the data involved in this project posed three distinct challenges.
Firstly, improving the user experience while retaining the familiar look, feel, and journey across the online certification process. Secondly, giving the team, rather than developers, more control over determining the complex business rules and user permissions involved in the certification process. Finally, ensuring all data was migrated safely and securely to the new platform. We achieved this by building a bespoke portal based on our Preside Platform.
And then some
Rapid developments within the technology sector can pose complex business challenges for organisations like GCF. This meant that their requirements continued to evolve throughout the project,
One extra was that GCF asked Pixl8 to integrate their existing customer-facing website with the new certification portal we were developing. We assessed that it would be better value for our partner to re-platform the current customer-focused site.
GCF also challenged Pixl8 to build a flexible technical solution which could be adapted and applied to other schemes. We developed a set of processes which could be re-purposed and applied globally. This solution allowed GCF to roll-out certification solutions for multiple new and evolving forms of technology, like the Internet of Things (IoT), without building separate bespoke solutions for every system.
The project has far exceeded GCF's original ambitions so they now face the future with even greater confidence.
