We specialise in creating innovative websites that cater to the unique needs of our clients. In this case study, we will explore how we collaborated with Glide, a leading software company based in the Peterborough area.
- Outdated Website:
Glide’s existing website and branding had an outdated design and lacked a clear structure, making it difficult for visitors to navigate and understand the software’s value proposition.
- Limited Lead Generation:
The website was not optimised for lead generation, resulting in missed opportunities to capture potential customer information and convert them into qualified leads.
- Inadequate Information Presentation:
The website content did not effectively showcase Glide’s software features and benefits, leaving visitors uncertain about its capabilities and value.
We agreed that in order to achieve Glide’s business goals we needed a fresh start and to address their current logo and branding, which was tired and dated. We introduced a new sense of energy and sophistication, perfectly capturing Glide’s innovative approach to software development.
We crafted a new colour palette while also reflecting the vibrant nature of the team. We also selected a more contemporary font, aligning with Glide’s vision for the future and ensuring their branding resonates with their target audience. Through this revitalised logo and branding, Glide now possesses a powerful visual identity that truly represents their forward-thinking software solutions for accountancy practices.
Strategies & Solutions
- Comprehensive Website Redesign:
We conducted a thorough analysis of Glide’s target audience, industry trends, and competitor websites to develop a new website design strategy. Our team focused on creating a modern, visually appealing, and user-friendly interface that aligned with Glide’s brand identity and software offerings. Using subtle animation we encapsulated the essence of what the Glide software provides by using seemingly random letters that animate into position for form the words: Visibility, Automation, Control.

We worked closely with Glide to refine and articulate their software’s unique selling points and benefits. By highlighting the key features, efficiency gains, and time savings, we aimed to clearly communicate the value of Glide’s software to potential customers.

We implemented strategic lead generation tactics throughout the website, including prominent call-to-action buttons and optimised contact forms. By offering valuable resources, such as white papers or free trials, we encouraged visitors to provide their contact information, thereby generating qualified leads.
