The External Reporting Board | XRB brought Somar Digital onboard to refresh their old website
XRB’s website is a trusted source for accounting and auditing standards and had not had any major updates in some time.
Somar Digital had worked with XRB on a number of smaller projects and was brought on board again to complete a major design overhaul to future-proof the site and present the information in a clean and simple way.
Website is now relevant to the intended users
We simplified the site's navigation and de-cluttered content pages so that users that come to the XRB site find the information they need easily and that it is laid out in a clean and simple way. We worked with real users and project stakeholders to make sure that everyone's needs are met.
Refreshed visual identity
We have had overwhelmingly positive feedback from XRB staff and stakeholders about the new site. Especially in regards to how it stays true to XRB's new vision and purpose and gives users a clear introduction to who XRB is and what they stand for. Ultimately at Somar Digital we want to make not only our clients happy but their users as well.
As is the case with the majority of digital projects there is always more work and more improvements to be made. We worked closely with XRB to make sure that the new site is future proof. This means that XRB won't have to invest in another overhaul of the website anytime soon but also that we can add to the site in small increments. For example, XRB already has plans to digitise its standards over the next 12 months. We love the chance to continue to work with our clients to improve their organisation.
