Hot on the heels of our exciting appointment by UCLan we're delighted to share the news we're now WaterAid's global web development partner.
This is an exciting win for the agency and we are looking forward to working with WaterAid to further raise their standards across their digital portfolio.
Our Drupal development expertise and proven track record of creating highly engaging digital experiences were major factors in us winning the work - and with any client / agency relationship that we all knew we had great chemistry and would enjoy working together.
Operating across 35 countries, WaterAid helps transform lives by getting water, toilets and hygiene to people living without these basic human rights. It was established in 1981 by the UK water industry before becoming an independent charity, and has so far reached 25.8 million people with clean water and 25.1 million with decent toilets.
As its global web development partner, Access will be responsible for the development, governance and deployment of all websites and microsites across the entire global operation, working towards WaterAid’s ambition for everyone, everywhere to have clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene by 2030.
The agency will also expand WaterAid’s current Drupal websites, adding more country sites and a range of microsites, and further develop the WASH Matters site, which provides reports, research and insight to the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector.
We will be working alongside Acquia to provide a holistic approach to developing and maintaining the web platform's architecture and integrity. We’ve already completed a technical audit of the site and will commence our wider support with immediate effect. We also have a number of broader projects in plan to help to improve the site performance, conversion and achieve WaterAid’s long term digital ambitions.
The agency’s remit is to also support and implement WaterAid’s new digital campaigns. It will see Access plan, design, implement UX best practice, and the build the website components of the campaigns.
Temina Milovanovic, Digital Marketing & Product Lead for WaterAid, said: “Access demonstrated exceptional experience and expertise in Drupal web development. This was coupled with their flexible and versatile approach, important for our organisation’s culture and structure.
“Continued investment in our digital capabilities will ensure we maintain the high levels of support we provide to those most in need, garnering support from both consumers and businesses to either participate in our events or volunteer.
“Our digital platform is a core element of our entire global operation, communicating the vital work we're doing as well as facilitating ongoing fundraising from all around the world."
