We continue to be impressed by the power and flexibility of Sitecore and our design partner Codehouse to deliver against our requirements. They understand our vision to get to the root of what our current and potential customers need when they visit our site.
Zuken wanted to give website visitors a better understanding of who Zuken is, to offer them the ability to identify products of interest and to explore core areas within the website. The key was to generate more customer demand through personalisation and marketing automation.
What's been achieved
Sitecore award winning website in Manufacturing, Automotive & Technology category
Personalisation based on GeoIP targeted banners and event listings
Custom development of Tag Analyser tool
Zuken's fresher and personalised enhanced Sitecore website offers easier navigation, eye-catching carousels and rotating banners as well as an easier registration process. The new database stores every piece of information submitted by a user through a web form. The Tag Analyser exports data relating to sales leads (based on a set of definable rules within Sitecore), which then distributes them automatically amongst resellers and direct sales reps every 24 hours.
Zuken can also define goals and campaigns, and through Sitecore Engagement Analytics can generate reports to identify visitors by location.

Integration and a custom tool
We used our expertise to help Zuken adopt a flexible design approach on its Sitecore website. This included carousel navigation and rotating banners. To meet the data capture requirement we integrated Web Forms for Marketers. To enable Zuken's marketing team to filter and export data more efficiently we developed a bespoke tool called the Tag Analyser. This tool extrapolates data from Sitecore Analytics in order to generate email campaigns using collected data tags.
Sitecore's flexibility enabled us to configure pre-defined rules as set out by Zuken. Added to Sitecore's Rule Set Editor for implementation in Sitecore's Digital Marketing System (DMS), the rules enable Zuken's marketing teams to apply personalisation.

By enabling Sitecore's DMS Zuken can assign persona personalisation rules to its home page. Other personalisation features includes GeoIP targeted banners and event listings, and GeoIP location based personalisation on Zuken's home page, which serves country-relevant specific banners and events listings depending on the visitor's country.
