Problem

TMI had not significantly updated their website in years, and it looked it (yes, it was that small). Their site had outdated content, small photos, and it was difficult to navigate. Their primary call to action, “Get a Quote,” was difficult to find.

TMI's Website has Several Functions:

  • Communicate their services and drive new business.
  • Highlight that there are many TMI locations.
  • Show company culture and what it’s like to work at TMI. Many people come to the site looking for employment. Also provide a way for people to apply for employment.
  • Client portal: extended communication with clients beyond the Request for Quote (RFQ).

Needs

  • Big visual update
  • Highlight their wide variety of services and work zone safety
  • A WordPress blog
  • A product catalog
  • Employment application services
  • A client portal

Goals

  • Increase RFQs
  • Show company culture and reflect the company’s success
  • Increase their traffic and session times
  • Reach a wider audience

Our Work

Our main points of contact at TMI were Jon Spano, Chief Operating Officer, and Renee Hernandez, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. After discussing TMI's needs and goals, design began sketching layouts. We moved into the prototyping and testing phase. InVision was used to present designs and get feedback.

Our relationship with TMI was a partnership. They provided all the copy and we happily worked with their photographer, Jonathan Alcorn.

Our Work

This site is more complex than a template. It gave us the opportunity to have fun and build new features.

Highlights

  • The location page checks the user's location and automatically shows the nearest TMI location.
  • Custom traffic control icons work within the Glyphicons system.
  • Integrated a WordPress blog so TMI employees can keep the blog updated themselves.
  • The client portal is cloud-based, fully-distributed and built to scale and accommodate growth.
  • Prospective employees can view open positions, read job descriptions, and apply for a position on the website. Future Traffic Controllers watch a video that explains the position and take a Pre-Employment Flagging Test before submitting an application.
