CADinteractive Appointed to Lead The Redevelopment of Arthur D Little’s Global Website

Nov. 24, 2006 – User centred design and usability consultancy CADinteractive, has been appointed by Arthur D Little to lead the functional design and information architecture redevelopment of its global web site.

Arthur D. Little is a global corporate advisor in strategy and operations management, serving major corporations and organizations worldwide. With offices in major cities worldwide, its website receives over 24,700 visitors per month from companies operating in a range of industries across the globe. The web site contains extensive company information, including its full range of services, global events, case studies and industry reports. Each section of the web site is industry specific. The high volume of information, coupled with country specific requirements, means that there have been problems with navigation, usability and accessibility.

CADinteractive will be using its expertise in usability, accessibility and information architecture to drive a redevelopment programme for the global web site. It will be undertaking a series of global usability reviews, to understand the issues faced by current site users. During these CAD will also be developing the functional design for the website, working with the design team to implement changes that will directly resolve the current problems.

Chris Averill. MD of CADinteractive said:

“We will be working with the A D Little new media and marketing teams to gain an insight into statistical analysis to understand the wider issues faced by current site users. By investigating navigational issues and implementing user journey maps we will be able to provide the creative development team with the information they need to make essential design changes as the web site goes through redevelopment.”

Richard Mills, Global Marketing Manager of Arthur D Little said:

CADinteractive was selected for this project because of its outstanding approach and expertise in global usability and design knowledge. The web site is a fundamental part of our global brand and we need to ensure that we maintain a high level online presence which reflects the products and services we offer our clients. I am looking forward to working with CADinteractive over the coming months.
