Kentico Cloud is very intuitive. It felt familiar, and I got straight into using it without issues. The ease of adding or updating content makes it easy to keep our content current, which is very important in the legal industry. We can now add more specific and targeted content because we're able to change small pieces of content almost immediately.

—Peter Thompson, Solicitor, McDonald, Slater & Lay

McDonald, Slater & Lay wanted to rebuild their website, as it was well overdue for a redesign. The law firm turned to digital agency Luminary to provide a modern, responsive, and content-managed solution on a small business budget.

The Challenge

Rebuilding and Redesigning a Website

The law firm required multi-user content management, review workflows, and the potential for basic contact segmentation and personalization.

The Solution

Luminary knew that McDonald, Slater & Lay's requirements matched the feature set of Kentico Cloud headless CMS perfectly. The team also leveraged the functionality of modular content, the asset library, and form tracking.

Developers made use of the Kentico Cloud boilerplate, and built the website in the ASP.NET MVC framework using C# for page rendering. For the front-end, the team used HTML and CSS, as well as Babel, React, and Node.js.

Content Management Made Easy with Headless CMS

With Kentico Cloud, McDonald, Slater & Lay is now able to update content quickly and easily in Content Inventory and publish changes with a single click. They no longer have to send Word documents to the digital agency and wait until these are converted to suitable chunks of HTML for pasting into the source view of an HTML block.
