Case Study: Schneider Electric – Employee Portal
Developing a More Usable Employee Resource for a Leading Global Energy Firm
With headquarters in Sweden and corporate offices on every continent, Schneider Electric’s employees needed an internal resource that simplified the company’s large and complex suite of energy services through a more intuitive interface.
Create an intuitive, user-centric employee resource for the Schneider Electric team that makes it simple, fast, and easy to browse and navigate the organization’s comprehensive suite of energy service offerings and capabilities.
• Make the Interface Intuitive
Design a user interface that simplified browsing and learning about the company’s bundle of energy product and service offerings.
• Manage Without a CMS
Develop the web solution outside the company network and make it easy to manage the content without the need for a conventional CMS.
• Improve User Experience
Make the web resource feel more vibrant and engaging by animating the interface with dynamic and responsive elements.
The New Interactive Homepage
We first created a matrix of Schneider’s energy and sustainability service offerings, then organized them into unique verticals. Using this newly organized content, we designed an interactive menu that helped employees, associates, and partners explore and understand each service more intuitively.
• Animated Designs
We animated the menu and background to give the homepage a more responsive, energetic feel.
• Dynamic Updatable Interface
We developed a simple way for admins to update and manage content.
• Custom Integration
We built this web solution outside of Schneider Electric’s corporate CMS, then integrated the live page.
