Key Security are an award winning, specialist total security provider headquartered in Wakefield and began trading in 2007. In August 2015, they became a leading member of the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme. On Friday 1st July 2016, Key Security won 3rd place in the Eaton Smith Business of the Year Awards. The company is growing rapidly with 6 offices across the North of England and further expansion plans.
Key Security approached Ascensor for a site that could expand in line with their growing business. Following a design drafting process we presented a modern block style layout for the website and it includes an office location finder which is linked to Google Maps – this feature allows visitors to the website to find their closest office from the 6 offices located on the map and obtain contact details for each location.
Each service area is accessible from the home page and then visitors can browse laterally through the services using the internal menu system. We have built out the case studies and newsroom to give Key the platform for publishing new content.
The website has been built using responsive design – the mobile form of the website was built first to ensure loading efficiency at the smallest size. It also promotes the “Patrol, Inspect, Respond” (PIR), this is a new application that the company uses to support the internal infrastructure and the field team use to confirm site attendance and report on activities.
We are assisting Key Security by working on growing localised traffic to feed into the individual locations. With more localised client wins, Key Security are able to expand the reach of each location and we very much see digital marketing as being the route to growth to facilitate the expansion into other areas over the coming months and years.
What Key Security said
Ascensor have been our digital partners since early 2012. As our business has grown, our requirements have changed considerably. When presented with the brief for our new website, Andy's team responded immediately and one of their initial suggestions based on our brief, is the one you see today (albeit it with some tweaks!)
As a very particular customer, I value their patience, innovation and creativity when working with us. The finished article surpasses my initial expectations and also leaves scope for future additions.
Ascensor are an integral part of our business and I look forward to pushing our online presence further over the next few months to really showcase what we do.
