Client project launched: London Entertains

We had great fun working with Roz and Nicci to build the new London Entertains website, which has been live for a few months now. "Webigence created a website that exceeds any of our competitors in terms of design and functionality..."

London Entertains are the official hospitality provider for most of London's West End. Having worked with them for over five years and developed their previous website, they asked us to help re-fresh and update the website to reflect the recent growth of the business.

We did some content workshops analysing the UX design of the site and the key organisational strengths as well as taking into account their vision of where they wanted to be heading as a company. Using Axure we created a suite of interactive wireframes showing them how the user would the access the information in a clear and direct way.

We then brought on board a brilliant visual designer who created the look and feel of the website which we could then translate to build the front end using our expertise of CSS3, HTML5 and Javascript before doing the programming and setting up the Content Management System (WebiCMS).

London Entertains specialises in corporate entertainment packages providing benefits such as fine dining, quality transport and access to sold-out shows but they also cater for people just wanting to purchase show tickets. The site, therefore, had to cater for linking up and integrating with a third party ticket site as well as an XML feed (we integrated into WebiCMS) to give the client the ability to select when they wanted to update the theatre show information on their website.


"The team at Webigence listened to our business needs and created the flow of the site to suit our customers. We could not be more pleased with the final site or the service we experienced from Webigence. It is refreshing to work with such approachable and all round nice people who do not blind you with jargon and are honest and reasonable with all fees, in fact they exceeded expectations at every turn. We are looking forward to working with them again on future projects. It was vital that our website was live for our busy period and our traffic jumped considerably after we switched to the new site, and pleasingly, even as we have entered our quieter months, we are able to maintain our visitor levels through the content functionality such as the Journal. The new site allows us to display more information in a much clearer way so we have reduced our time spent on the phone and email giving out information - time that often distracted from sales.
