Background

See the site before the redesign

In 2006, Microsoft Licensing engaged our Digital Services team to provide support for a one-time custom content and website project. The initial project was so successful that the relationship quickly evolved into a long-standing digital marketing partnership. We continue to provide Microsoft Licensing with a broad range of services and support that includes maintaining their website and online documentation, supporting marketing initiatives and campaigns, refining messaging, and providing analytics and insights that drive strategic planning and increase customer satisfaction.

Outcomes

Licensing is a key revenue stream for Microsoft, so the worldwide Licensing group’s marketing and communication channels play a critical role in the success of the business. Our team matches Licensing’s rhythm of business, scaling up to manage the volume of ongoing work and to support key projects as needed. Our work in this engagement includes:

  • Designing marketing campaign pages, from concept to mock-up to wireframe; making adjustments per client review; and guiding the project through development and production
  • Redesigning website to meet technical and design requirements, as defined by Microsoft.com team
  • Migrating website multiple times to stay compatible with the latest version of Microsoft’s proprietary content management system; migration requires building new templates, content changes, and development to ensure page functionality
  • Transitioning the site to four different analytics tools (Web Trends, Digital Analytics, Interana, and Adobe Analytics), as directed by Microsoft, and providing the client with web analytics
