Tastefully adjusted images to complement site styling.
Beyond The Web
Third party system integration.
Sentry Executive cater to executive and elite clientele so their website needed to reflect that image.
It takes takes less than two-tenths of a second for an online visitor to form an opinion of your brand. It was clear that styling as well as functionality was going to be a key feature of this project.
We helped Sentry select the technology to deliver results.
More than just the online face of their organisation, their website needed to offer clients a facility to book a chauffeur via the web. We scoured the many booking and dispatch solutions available, setup demos and made comparisons to help the Sentry team choose the right platform for their business.
This project was always going to be about more than just the website. What Sentry needed was not only a site, but the systems to automate their workflow as much as possible. Had they gone to a regular design firm, the onus would have been on Sentry to join up all the dots and figure out which vendors were right for them.
We worked hard behind the scenes, making calls to system providers and exchanging emails with developers to find a blend of software that would give Sentry the features they needed and remain within budget. We kept in constant communication with the Sentry team, running usability tests and making tweaks to the site as their feedback came to us.
We took existing images and artwork that Sentry had and modified it to suit the style of their site as well as sourcing stock images for them too. With Armshouse Group, the scope of your project can be as wide as you need it to be. That’s because we offer technical and creative services, not just one thing. What this meant for Sentry is that we were able to handle anything technical that they didn’t have time to deal with. From setting up their Twitter feed to appear on their website, to configuring the email templates that their dispatch system sends out, we were able to include all of that as part of our service – How many traditional web design agencies would go that far?
“We first approached Armshouse Group from the outset of the business plan regarding a website. They have been instrumental in bringing Sentry to life in a visible way. Helping from the start up and always giving many options to questions about the best outcome for our business image and web performance. I could not recommend Armshouse Group enough and do to many people who have now used their skills in bringing their business to life on the web.”

Beyond The Web
We didn’t just come on board to take care of Sentry’s website, we also helped them find a booking and dispatch system to manage their fleet. With a range of vendors available, we conducted research based on Sentry’s requirements and budget, enabling us to narrow down the options for them.Having us take care of both the website and the technical parts of the booking system meant that the Sentry team didn’t need to go back and forth between web designers, app developers and software vendors to get things moving. We handled all of that headache for them meaning they could focus on making decisions and not making phone calls.
Precise And Impartial Advice
We base our recommendations on the needs of your project, not which supplier will give us the biggest cut or make our life the easiest. All too often we’ve met clients who have been saddled with one product or another simply because that’s whom their previous consultants or designers had a deal going with. We won’t do that to you.
We took care of the web hosting setup and software installation.
Razor Sharp Design
The site was styled to the specification of the client merging their colour scheme with our creativity.
We went beyond web design and helped to recommend third party suppliers of booking and dispatch systems, payment processing and invoicing platforms.
We’re not like other consultancies who might try and dictate what you should be doing. We don’t bulldoze our ideas through; we work with you, keeping you in the loop and in charge.
