DXP Solution Design
from Engagency

Our DXP Solution Designers have over a decade of experience designing Large-scale DXP Implementations. We believe that the success of any project depends on the quality of its design, done at the beginning. We’re ready to help you get your project started off on the right foot.
 
A lot goes into a successful Sitecore DXP Implementation. Using our agile approach increases the collaboration between your company and ours, produces requirements that are more well defined, and establishes a cadence of review that provides clear and concise insight into the final product. All of this produces better outcomes , fewer headaches, and pleasant surprises.

Here's how we help

Streamline your content, design and management

During discovery, we’ll lead a discussion with your team to understand other key aspects of the project such as other functionality you intend to incorporate, specifics around how various components work, and any specific needs your content editors may have. Some of the information we’re sussing out may include:

Content Audit

Content Audit

Differentiating between content that is specific to a type of page vs content that appears across page types.

Pattern Identification

Pattern Identification

For design patterns that appear on multiple pages, will the content developed belong solely to one page or will some of the content appear in various parts of the site? Testimonials, for example are typically the same content, but displayed in multiple places.

Content Identification

Content Identification

Are there any key relationships between different content types? Products and Resources for example?

Functionality

Functionality

Will your DXP solution require additional functionality, such as search, Salesforce integration, or multi-language support?

Personalization

Personalization

Will any personalization be applied now or in a future phase? Is there an outline of how and where that may be applied already?

Content Editing

Content Editing

What level of technical knowledge will your content editors have? For specific modules, will flexibility or standardization be more important?

Team Member Access

Team Member Access

Which team members need access to the DXP, will different members need access to different types of content? Is there a need for review and approval of content?

The key to success is

Getting everyone on the same page

Based on our findings, we’ll put together a detailed Solution Design document. This defines the building blocks that will be used to create the site - including layouts, renderings, modules, and data templates. This vital piece of documentation serves as ground zero for your implementation, outlining how your content will be structured, what pages and modules will be created, and how content will be editable within your DXP.

With buy-in from you and all the necessary stakeholders, a solid Solution Design document ensures that everyone is on the same page, and on board with the plan—from brainstorming to launch.

Everyone Singing Your Praises

Avoid unpleasant surprises

Detailed planning helps you avoid surprises. When we plan your DXP solution, nothing gets forgotten. As a result, there are no last-minute feature adds or fire drills that have your team rushing to finish in time for launch (and likely causing errors in the meantime).

Enjoy a faster time-to-market

We take into account everything you need built, and how we'll actually implement it within your environment. With this level of planning, implementation goes smoothly. Meeting your deployment dates is simply a matter of following the right steps.

Get a solution that works how you expect

When your DXP is implemented properly, it’s easy and intuitive to use. Your DXP isn’t missing any critical features, and it’s just as easy for your marketing team to manage content, as it is for your IT team to support the environment. We'll spend the time designing your solution, before building, and when we're all on the same page, you'll get exactly what you expect. It's that simple.

Don't just take our word for it

Here's What Our Clients Have To Say

“We were not only looking for application and code vetting but also had Engagency do a technical database and application architecture review. I was surprised with the fact that Engagency was able to do this type of analysis at such a fast pace. I was also impressed with the personal touch from our contact. Engagency never pressured us into a deal and adapted the bid to our needs. Engagency was also good at listening to our challenges and offered to help with the interview process for certain resources we needed. Our experience with them has led me to believe that Engagency has many good relationships with other customers.”

“Alongside the actual featured delivery, [Engagency is] always very attentive to help us find ways to optimize performance on the backend. One of the things that struck us right away was that they were thinking about how to focus on delivery while giving us guidance on how to make the site more flexible for the future. They’ve been strong contributors to ensure a very strong, performing site overall. It comes through in the fact that we’re winning more work and being entrusted with bigger projects.”

Adam Monago
VP of Digital & Performance Marketing

- Consulting Firm

“We worked with [Engagency] on a couple of large projects. One of them was rebranding and rebuilding a subsection of our company. We had 10–15 acquisition sites that we were trying to combine into one creative-looking sub-brand on our website. It’s a tough job to build out a site when the creative team is asking you to make it look identical to the designs they made without any knowledge of how it worked on the backend. [Engagency] helped us through the entire process including after we launched the site. The clients and our company as a whole have been exceedingly happy with the product.”
