Introducing the new Swan Property website!

Last month, we launched a brand-new website for one of Crawley’s biggest independent letting agents: Swan Property Management.

We worked closely with the Swan Property team to create a design that reflects their brand and integrates with the latest web technologies. Robert Summerfield, our lead creative designer worked through multiple variations of the design until a finalised one was agreed with the management at Swan Property. He created a design that focuses on imagery whilst being responsive and fluid. It looks and works great on all screen sizes.

“I was provided with a delightfully exciting design from Rob [Summerfield] which allowed us to really put a huge focus on imagery, an important feature for a site advertising property. That can be a difficult task if your goal is to also ensure that the site is fully responsive and usable for people on huge pixel dense displays as well as those browsing on their phones.”

John Robinson, Senior Developer

John built the design into Correl8- our bespoke content management system. A good website doesn’t just look great, it needs to be dynamic, so the content can change when needed. John built various different content areas into the Homepage module in Correl8, allowing both Swan and ourselves to edit the content of the website using a WYSIWYG editor.

Their previous website did not have a content management system and making changes to the content for search engine optimisation was a difficult task.

“From a front-end perspective the goal with the 2018 update for Swan Property was to drag the website into the modern age. Not a lot has changed with regards to content or site structure, but the old website was looking very dated and offered users some unnecessary challenges when using the site on the vast array of screen sizes available today.”

Swan Property Management needed a platform for clients to search through a catalogue of lettings on the market and so our team built a system to pull property information from KeyData. After discussing with Jonathon, they decided it needed to fetch the properties automatically as well as having the ability to manually import the latest property lettings information. 

We also built the property listings into their own Facebook page. A custom application was requested by the team to allow their Facebook followers to browse available lettings directly on their page. 

A module was built into Correl8 that fetches and caches letting information meaning that customers can search the list of property lettings fairly quickly. We also implemented a caching system for property images so thumbnails can be generated on the fly, reducing load times and improving usability. “One challenge with displaying images served by a third party provider is the lack of control over the content, particularly images in our case. We have a plan in place for the new year to leverage some of the recent and exciting advances in cloud storage and responsive images to solve this issue and further improve the new website."

The website is a custom design by our team, then built from scratch into Correl8. We used the latest in website technologies whilst keeping support for older browsers in mind.

Correl8 are proud to have worked with Swan Property for a number of years and was very pleased when they contacted us to help bring their website into the modern era.

  • I have both known and worked with the guys at Correl8 for well over 10 years now, and in that time they have never failed to deliver work and technology to the highest standard. That was why I was confident that they were the right partner for my new business. The system and reservation platform that they have developed is so unique and powerful, it allows us to quickly and easily contract new suppliers and homes and have them on-sale in the UK.

  • Correl8 have consistently delivered and supported Hovertravel as a business moving forward. They fully understand what we need to achieve from our online presence and completed the initial work within the projected deadline and budget.
    Julie Robson
    Hovertravel - Sales and Development Manager
  • We are delighted with the services provided by the team at Correl8. They are friendly and professional and posses all the skills and expertise necessary too help us to drive the business further forward. I would not hesitate in recommending Correl8 to any company looking to compliment any digital marketing services with very capable and reponsive in-house web developers.
    Emma McFarlane
    KpH Group - Sales & Marketing Executive
  • After receiving notice from our current system suppliers, we were left looking for an alternative that could support and develop our online business further. Correl8 came recommended to us by a partner, and we invited them along for to the office an initial visit. Their knowledge, experience and professionalism in this industry was evident. We are delighted with the work and support they have given us to date, all within timescales indicated, and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any other business.
    Karl Lapage
    Coach Direct - Managing Director
  • I have used many different website content management systems to update content, write blogs and post articles. I can honestly say that the Correl8 CMS is far better than all of them. It's intuitive and easy to use and if you require more functionality, it can be added in for you. Plus, if you do find you occasionally require a little assistance, then the developers are quickly on hand to help.

  • Simon and the team at Correl8 have assisted not only us but a lot of my close business associates with their websites and digital marketing services. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and all the staff at Correl8. Their work is second to none.
    Gary Streets
    Colvin - Group Director
  • We didn't really know what we wanted when we started and we must have been very painful customers to deal with as we made him re do a couple of websites from scratch as we kept changing our minds and our brief. All the way through the process Si remained calm and helpful and for a technophobe like myself, he made the whole process seem vaguely understandable. I would highly recommend both him and Olly...and all the team at Correl8.
    Chris Cole
    Alliance Buying Group - Managing Director
  • The team at Correl8 has been supporting the development of our online business for more than 6 years now and we've been delighted with the service we've received. Most recently, they provided us with a new, mobile-friendly website and enhanced our entire back-end booking system, all within a very tight time scale. We had quite a few unique requests with what we required the new system to do, and they had no problem building this into the platform. Overall, extremely pleased with their work. Great team to work with and can't speak highly enough of them
    Miles Saward
    Sport Options - Managing Director

  • A big thank you to Simon and the team at Correl8 who are assisting us with our digital marketing services and how we engage with our customers. A really nice group of people to work with. Honest, reliable and knowledgeable.
