A fresh, professional new WordPress website that’s highly scalable and gives the client the freedom to manage their own content in house

Based in Manchester’s King Street, Mark 1 Systems is a tech company specialising in systems that support organisations in achieving ISO 9001 accreditation.

Since founder and Director Mark Nolan established the company in 2003 it has extended its services to incorporate a comprensive range of accreditations including ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 45001 (health and safety management) and ISO 27001 (Information Security management).

Marl 1 System’s USP is its business management system, Titan. The platform has been created to integrate seamlessly into any existing IT network, providing a highly effective way for companies to achieve UKAS accredited ISO certification.

When the client first contacted us, they had already been working with another agency who had created the design and branding. While they were happy with the look of the site and marketing materials, they felt the website was holding them back.

We’re always happy to work with clients who want to use their existing brands and could see there was no need to reinvent the wheel, but immediately recognised the issues with the existing website. The main problem was that it had been created on a complicated platform and couldn’t be updated in-house, which meant whenever the client had new content or social media links to add they had to go through the developer. This was a long and complicated process which was costing them a lot of time and money, as well as considerable frustration.

We could immediately see that the best option for them would be to move to a WordPress website, which would offer a range of benefits including:

We built the site in line with the existing branding guidelines, creating a fresh, professional looking website that’s simple to navigate and sticks with the blue and white colour scheme.

The client is now enjoying the freedom of being able to update their own website in-house, saving significant time and money. The site also includes a built in blog page and links seamlessly with the company’s social media pages for a greater user experience and enhanced customer relationships.
