Issue

Together with the Proximity Bucharest team, that would manage brand related issues and client-agency communcation, Retina had the daunting task to simultaneously build & launch 6 Whiskas and Pedigree websites. (a pair in each of the 3 countries Romania, Slovenia, Croatia).

Solution

In order to provide a fast, consistent and easy understandable project approach, before jumping into building the 6 localized websites, we first started to develop an english language prototype.

The prototype would set the general design and development guidelines, provide a structure for each country to localize their content and to adapt the website functinality to meet the local market needs.

A customized version of Retina's Webalive CMS is providing the required database functionalities and updating features; our solution also allowed a very straightforward approach to first build all the required functionalities in the English prototype, then duplicate the site into the 6 other localized versions and then tweak as needed.

Retina trained content managers in each of the 3 countries and after the launch of the site each website is updated by it's content manager, all following a precise synchronized timeline.

The sites were a smash hit, www.whiskas.ro for example surged to over 1.500.000 page views / month, in the second month benefiting from very strong viral referrals as hundreds of Internet forums were swamped by users trying to promote their pet in the Cat of the month contest.
