Superu was experiencing issues with their legacy site, including: a malfunctioning search engine (The Hub), consistent breaks, inconsistent billing and poor support. The previous development company for Superu also had a high rate of staff turnover, meaning that they lacked a solid history of 'The Hub’ and its intricacies.
To solve these issues, SilverStripe aimed to migrate The Hub on to CWP, improve the search functionality and provide ongoing support for the current build and advice on potential future enhancements. Also as identified by the client, SilverStripe had a low staff turnover, so offered stability that the previous supplier lacked.
Superu wanted the website to have three main types of pages. The homepage, search results page, and resource pages. Core features on the homepage included a short list of recent and hand picked resources, and a search field filterable by agency. For the search results page they wanted a more extensive list of terms that you could filter and sort resources by. A resource page with a list of publications in which you can download the file and citation, along with the metadata and related resources for each one.
