Aviva already had a Sitefinity installation in place but were looking for a team of experts to take on development of a dedicated site for UK financial advisors and deliver advanced functionality to an already rich Sitefinity based website. Aviva had produced rich designs but needed a crack team of web developers to deliver the functionality they desired. As a Sitefinity Platinum Partner, Spinbox were well placed to use our in-depth knowledge of the platform to deliver a rich solution which met Aviva’s business needs. Our agile project management methodology allowed us to be responsive to changing client requirements without risking delay to the project and ensure that when the website was launched Aviva got exactly what they were looking for.
Amongst some of the highly beneficial features which Spinbox implemented for Aviva was a custom workflow package which allowed definition of approval processes for user uploaded publications and logging and reporting features to ensure accuracy and traceability of published content.
Another highly valuable feature developed for Aviva was the caching of content pages, Due to the dynamic nature of their business and the website which supports it Aviva needed a solution which allowed them access to a historical view of web content. Through custom development Spinbox were able to develop a caching module which took a snapshot of a page each time it was changed and allowed Sitefinity administrators to view previous versions of that page so that they knew exactly what was displayed and when, long after content had been overwritten.
Delivery of this historical view of published content lead to development of another great feature on the Aviva for Advisors site. As well as being able to access a historical view of web content Spinbox also built for Aviva the functionality to schedule updates to web pages and preview what this content would look like prior to being set live, allowing Aviva to plan content changes and trust in the quality of content being published without having to recheck once live.
