Website Design : Revamping CUCKOO Malaysia’s Webpage

One of Asia’s biggest home appliances providers hired Flow Digital developers to revamp their website design by redesigning their entire user interface (UI) and improving their overall user experience (UX).

Summary

CUCKOO needed to improve their website User Experience and scale their company faster without relying on external capital.
CUCKOO experienced early success by driving targeted traffic and leads for their clients. However, their manual process for media buying limited their ability to take on additional clients. To scale their organisation at a fast rate, CUCKOO knew they needed to hire developers to automate their process, and thus consulted Flow Digital.

Our team has extensive experience in website design and has helped CUCKOO revamp and upgrade their web pages to strengthen their user interface, while also managing their monthly web maintenance services. By flexibly engaging with Flow Digital, CUCKOO achieved rapid growth while continuing to bootstrap the company.

Challenges

As a global home appliance brand, CUCKOO Malaysia wanted to further boost its brand awareness by upgrading their web pages’ user interface. The main focus was to bridge the gap between CUCKOO and their customers and to enhance their customers’ journey for a better user experience.

The fast-paced company had numerous product launches a year, making it difficult for their in-house designers to cope with the increasing demand in productivity. The organisation did not have a dedicated development team, while their previous agency charged exorbitant fees with limited hours of work.

Our Approach 

Overview
To create a better user experience, our team had to redesign CUCKOO’s entire user interface from scratch as well as their web pages for various product launches.

Our Process

  • First we audit the website and find out all the issues
  • We suggested enhancements and improvements strategy (new customised module, create a staging site, add enquiry forms etc)
  • We plan for the execution so that their current website and SEO result were not affected
  • Each new product page is launched concurrently with their official offline launches to be cohesive with their brand awareness marketing campaigns. Both companies’ teams collaborated to ensure consistent brand personality and tone for the website.
  • We improved their website security and updated their CMS plugins.
