Pragma’s first step was to define the out-of-the-box content types required for each of the websites. Pragma worked with Annex to determine which content types would be most efficient to build for all 25 websites.
Once these were defined, Pragma mapped existing website content to content types. This was then handed over to Annex to migrate as per the content types provided. Whilst mapping the content, Pragma provided advice about WCAG compliance and best-practice user experience.
Post migration, Pragma designed and implemented a process for testing the accuracy of the migrated content and the site functionality, as well as testing the sites against usability principles and ensuring the website was optimised across browsers and devices. This ensured a consistent, accurate migration across all 25 websites.
Pragma designed and conducted website handover with project clients, ensuring smooth website sign-off, and equipping website owners for future content development. This included training clients in GovCMS features and preparing them for ongoing maintenance and content improvements. Pragma also provided clients with future recommendations for further development of the websites beyond this migration.
Pragma also worked closely with the site builders from Annex to design a more efficient process for website migration, bringing agile principles to the project and working in small ‘website teams’ to allow maximum efficiency in communication and collaboration. This allowed for websites to efficiently and quickly pass through the five steps of Discovery, Alpha, Beta, Quality Assurance and Final Handover.
