Project Overview

Valleyhill, a Japan-based corporation engaged in diverse business sectors, sought to establish an online presence targeting an international audience. The project's primary objectives included developing a two language [Japanese and English] website to showcase the Valleyhill corporation and its various businesses, along with creating a cohesive brand identity for both the corporate brand and its sub-brands.

Industry

Online auction, export/import, dining, IT, etc

Project Duration

The project was scheduled for a duration of four months and was delivered on December 30, 2023

Kick-off

The project commenced with multiple stakeholder meetings to gain a comprehensive understanding of the project's requirements. Subsequently, we initiated the discovery phase based on valuable feedback from the stakeholders.

Solution

In conjunction with these goals, the development of an admin panel was essential to streamline backend operations and enhance overall website management. This admin panel served as a centralized hub for efficiently overseeing various aspects of the website, including content management, lead generation, blog administration, and email messaging.

Discovery

Competitor Audit

During this phase, we conducted thorough market research, analyzing competitors to create a comprehensive comparison sheet covering design, content, and branding aspects. The companies under consideration included:

MitsuiCiticMarubeniMitsubishiToyota

Additionally, we researched industry changes in Japan to stay abreast of relevant trends in Japan.

User Persona

To ensure a focused vision for the website's audience, we created user personas based on stakeholder input. Upon completing the discovery phase, we transitioned to the branding phase, incorporating insights from our research and stakeholder feedback.

Website Design

Mood Board

We crafted a mood board in FigJam, encompassing Design Aspiration, Texture Swatches, Color Aspiration, Illustration, Typography, and Photography. This collaborative platform facilitated ongoing communication with stakeholders, allowing them to share their opinions and preferences. Continuous engagement on the FigJam board ensured that stakeholder feedback influenced the design process.

Branding

We developed a comprehensive brand book, encompassing Corporate Logos and Sub-brand Logos, Logotype, Corporate and Sub-brand Colors, Typography, Icons, Social Media Guidelines and Covers, Illustration, Pattern, and Stationery.

Information Architecture

At this stage, we defined the website's menus and submenus to create a structured user experience.

Wireframe

We crafted the website wireframe and content strategy based on insights gathered during the discovery phase. The wireframe underwent testing with two users familiar with typical user actions on websites, and feedback was incorporated to refine the wireframe for optimal visibility of all elements.
This strategic approach ensured a cohesive and well-defined online presence for Valleyhill, aligning with the corporation's objectives and catering to the international audience.

Develop

Admin Panel Development

In conjunction with the website design process, we developed a robust admin panel tailored specifically for Valleyhill's requirements. The admin panel serves as the central hub for managing various aspects of the website, including lead management and blog administration.

User Access Control

Recognizing the need for secure and controlled access to the admin panel, we implemented a multi-level user access. This system allows Valleyhill to assign different levels of access to individuals within the organization, ensuring that only authorized personnel can perform specific tasks within the admin panel. The user access control feature includes role-based permissions.

Lead Management System

To streamline Valleyhill's interaction with potential clients and leads, we implemented a comprehensive lead management system within the admin panel. This system allows Valleyhill to track and organize leads effectively, ensuring timely follow-ups and personalized communication. Key features of the lead management system include lead capture forms, lead categorization, lead scoring, and integration with customer relationship management (CRM) software for seamless lead nurturing.

Email Messaging

Incorporating email messaging capabilities into the admin panel enhances Valleyhill's communication channels with customers and leads . Through the admin panel, Valleyhill can create and send email to segmented audiences, driving engagement and fostering relationships. The email messaging feature supports personalized content and automated workflows and conversations history.

Blog Management

The admin panel also incorporates robust blog management functionality, enabling Valleyhill to publish, edit, and organize blog posts effortlessly. With intuitive content management tools, Valleyhill can create engaging and informative blog content to attract and retain website visitors. Additionally, the blog management system includes features such as scheduling posts, categorizing content, managing comments, and tracking performance metrics to optimize content strategy.

Integration and Scalability

The admin panel is designed with scalability and integration in mind, allowing Valleyhill to adapt and expand its online presence as needed. Seamless integration with existing systems and third-party tools ensures efficient data flow and enhances overall operational efficiency. Moreover, the admin panel's modular architecture enables easy customization and addition of new features to meet evolving business requirements.

Overall, the development of the admin panel complements the website design process, empowering Valleyhill to effectively manage its online presence, engage with stakeholders, and drive business growth. With comprehensive lead management and blog administration capabilities, Valleyhill is well-equipped to leverage its digital platform to achieve its strategic objectives and enhance brand visibility on the global stage.
