Website for Eco-Awards Program in the USA
Umbraco CMS Website Implementation and Migration
The Client is an international, cutting-edge marketing agency, specializing in both traditional and digital marketing, with an emphasis on social media. Its software needs are vast – spanning various delivery channels, including broadcast, web and mobile devices. The company began utilizing outsourcing more than a decade ago to provideadequate staffing that ensured all its clients were able to engage their audiences in different brand experiences.
The client needed to create a website to inspire eco-friendly actions in the USA communities and to represent an awards program honoring Heroes who work to create, preserve, improve or enhance the shared outdoor places in multiple locations across the USA.
During the project the SaM team had to bring together the site parts with different functionality to enable easy switching from mode to mode for vote/nominate phases allowing users to view mode-specific content. For this purpose, SaM set up and extended Umbraco and its functionality by adding XSLT and .NET modules.
The software solution enhanced customer service by providing:
- Requirements definition
- Frontend customization
- Backend development
- Manual testing

Before outsourcing, the Client relied on local freelance talent to fill in on a per-project basis. Outsourcing gave the company far easier access to a superior pool of development professionals – and a larger supply of them. This strategic partnership allowed the Client to achieve better flexibility in terms of employees on hire, better ability to complete a variety of projects requiring diverse technical needs, and the competitive advantage gained over similar organizations due to the previous two aspects.
