Lund municipality received a new website with a top rating

Learn about our successful project together with the municipality of Lund in Sweden, as they we delivered an intuitive and modern website which has climbed to the top lists of Webperf’s report on Sweden’s best municipal websites.

The challenge

The municipality of Lund faced the challenge of updating their website and requested an intuitive and visually appealing website, where the visitor easily would find information.

In addition to the web itself, another aspect of the project was to develop websites for the municipality’s marketing websites such as visitlund.se/en and for the secondary schools.

Working on a tight timeframe, we quickly established that the new web should be a continuous build on the current website foundation and give the various stakeholders/owners the opportunity to customize the identity of their own websites.

The five aspects of this project included

Five different areas were included within the framework of the project. These were:

  • Concept and strategy
  • Design
  • Development
  • Test
  • Management

Content migration

Lund Municipality’s previous platform was Episerver and therefore the content migration was an additional challenge.

Therefore, Lund Municipality’s chose to do a manual migration which gave them the opportunity to clean up and update all content. This was a comprehensive project where the client’s project manager Karin Stigbahr did an excellent job with structuring the content and managed to keep the editors engaged. Resources from Consid also developed updated content.

External image management and calendar API

Implementation of external image management was also included to ensure that it would be enough for the editors to work with images in the external service, making it possible to store all photos in one place. We also integrated the event calendar, making it possible to display selected calendar events via API that are published in an external service.

The solution

Sitevision – simplicity and flexibility with high performance

We chose Sitevision, which is not only very easily navigated, but also flexible with its functions. The advantages of Sitevision are many, including that it is a logical tool for editors with no experience. Another notable feature is the possibility to create multiple types of pages at once and controlling the appearance. It simply gives freedom under responsibility.

“Professional, consistent delivery”

“The collaboration with Consid has been very straightforward. While upholding a clear dialogue where they have delivered exactly what I initially asked for, we challenged our requirements and see if there is not a smarter way to solve the challenges. We have received a professional delivery consistently.”

– Karin Stigbahr, project manager at Lund municipality.

The result

We achieved impressive results after finishing the project and launching the new website lund.se.

Lund.se – an intuitive and modern website

The new website has provided great opportunities for customizing content on your workspace. The website now includes smart solutions for presenting substantial amounts of content and has become more user-friendly. Lund municipality now has an intuitive and modern, responsive website with a seamless integration connecting to external systems, simplifying the creation of new campaign pages and websites.

High scores in Webpref’s report on municipal websites

Webperf’s report, ranking Sweden’s best municipal websites, shows that the outcome of the new website is incredibly successful.

The overall rating of the website has increased from 2,625 to 4,155, where the maximum score is 5.0. Lund.se has thus gone from place 269 to place 26.

The website has also made great progress in the various sub-categories, where one ranking stands out – increasing the accessibility score to the maximum score and thus moved from place 132 to first place and moved from place 220 to place 21 in the web standard category.

This is just the beginning

“Although the project is coming to an end, it’s only the beginning as we have laid a solid foundation for a flexible and smart web, where we can now start working on continuous improvements based on our goals. I look forward to our continued collaboration with Consid.”

Karin Stigbahr, project manager at Lund municipality.

Next on the list are the marketing websites which will be launched before the entire project will be transferred to management.
