KINGSPAN is the world leader in insulation, construction disputes and façade solutions. They were looking for a partner who could quickly build an accessible and secure website for them to support their very first 'Innovation Week'. An event to stimulate the sense of innovation among all employees in the group.
Employees from around the world had to use a secure website to:
consult the event calendar;
follow online webinars;
be able to present innovative ideas;
and register for the Global Digital Challenge.
The biggest challenge in this project was the time limit. In three weeks, the site had to be designed, developed, tested and executed. In addition, videos had to be added that could be played effortlessly and simultaneously.
The website was delivered by Oak Street within three weeks and included, in addition to the calendar, videos, texts and forms to involve the employees as much as possible in the various initiatives. In addition, a secure password-less login procedure was used so that the confidential content was securely stored on the website.
Thanks to the user-friendly back-end, Kingspan could easily update content, upload new videos and track visits and views via web analytics.
The website also proved to be a very practical communication tool for Kingspan and is therefore today used as a platform to share innovative projects and initiatives on a daily basis between the various Kingspan departments around the world.
The success of the website encouraged Kingspan to keep it live and use it as a central tool to communicate to the business divisions about ongoing innovation initiatives.
"Oak Street was an indispensable part of our first Innovation Week: building the website in a short time, providing suitable solutions and the support throughout the Innovation Week (and beyond!) was of great importance to us."
