The Need

CatholicCare needed to rework its online properties to create better appeal. The old site was too centred on the organisation and did not take into account the needs of the visitor, in particular those people needing the services that CatholicCare offers.

NRC took a considered approach to the development of the site.

This involved listening what key stakeholders had to say and then scoping a detailed set of requirements.

Following on from this NRC undertook detailed analysis of CatholicCare's prospective clients using the techniques of client profiling and user journeys, which helped CC get a much better understanding of user journeys through the organisation, as well as the online environment.

The Solution

NRC implemented a new content management system which allows CatholicCare much more autonomy and control over their online environment.
