CHALLENGE

KL needed a new responsive site that supported their content strategy. One main focus for the site was to be especially user-friendly for the editors, as KL is a very content-heavy site. Therefore, maintenance, structure and quality assurance of the new site was also a major priority for KL. In addition to a new design, the new platform should also be built around a stronger information architecture for the purpose of KL's site, as their primary communication channel towards the municipalities. The new site therefore plays an important role their daily work and must be prioritized.

SOLUTION AND RESULT

The solution resulted in a new digital platform for KL, which is built in Umbraco with several smart integrations. Among other things, we have made integration with Ubivox, Conference Manager and KL's employee database. KL is now based on a more responsive site available on all platforms. KL has a very large news universe from which the largest part of the traffic source comes from - a news universe consisting of many editors with different backgrounds. We therefore auto-migrated the news from the old kl.dk to the new site, where they automatically appear as related news based on a system of tags. KL's new site also contains a newsletter module, where we have made an engine that generates a personalized newsletter. These integrations and solutions have helped to create uniformity and an overview for the many editors. The new design has been drafted by the agency Kontrapunkt, to which Kruso has added features such as anchor links and accordions, which contribute to the flow of the design. In addition to kl.dk, a subsite - klk.kl.dk - has also been established, which among other things offers other page display functions than on the main site. The overall solution and digital platform supports KL's role as an organization and as a unifying entity, by inviting for collaboration and the right framework.
