The Challenge

In 2011 a restructure of their business offerings meant significant changes were required for the corporate website. Adapt were using a proprietary CMS developed by a marketing agency which, although it enabled Adapt to add and amend some content, frequently required developer intervention and assistance to accommodate site updates. Adapt wanted a content management system that was more flexible and provided the same responsiveness that Adapt offered to its customers.

The MODX Solution

Adapt chose MODX Revolution implemented by OCTA, a London based MODX Professional. Implementation went smoothly and Adapt were delighted at how simply and quickly the site could be restructured to accommodate the inclusion of an additional business line halfway through the project.

MODX Revolution has opened a door to an enterprise feature set that enables us to take better control of our web presence and become more responsive online to fast moving trends and opinion. It’s got a great GUI that’s intuitive to use and the extensible modular system can cope with our very specific demands with ease. There was nothing that we wanted to do that we couldn’t because of system limitations. Layla Marshall, Adapt’s Head of Marketing

Solution Highlights
