EPiServer‘s Content Management System Chosen for National Friendly’s new website
National Friendly and its interactive agency twentysix London have chosen EPiServer’s award-winning Content Management System (CMS) for the new www.nationalfriendly.com website. The site will go live in November and will provide comprehensive information about National Friendly’s products and services.
Formed in 1868 and based in Bristol, National Friendly is a mutual insurance provider that offers a range of savings, investment and protection products, including unique and cost-effective health insurance plans for both individuals and companies. As a mutual it has no shareholders to take a share of its profits and is focused solely on the needs of its members. Twentysix London was appointed to completely overhaul www.nationalfriendly.com including re-design and re-platform. It recommended EPiServer CMS and another .NET CMS to National Friendly’s team. After extensive evaluation EPiServer was chosen for a number of reasons including the ease with which National Friendly’s non-technical editorial team will be able to manage – create, update and upload - new content. Twentysix became an EPiServer partner earlier this year and has already used its CMS for a number of other sites. Ted Hurlock, Technical Director at twentysix London, said: “EPiServer has worked hard to enable websites which really engage and interact with the user. In addition, its CMS is very easy for non-technical people to use. This is a real selling point for organisations who want to be able to do the day-to-day maintenance on their websites internally”. Thousands of organisations and companies of all sizes are saving time, resources and money by using EPiServer to manage their websites, intranets, online communities and online marketing activities including Mazda, The Lawn Tennis Association, FIFA, Toshiba and the United Nations as well as charities such as Save The Children.
