Adhering to Microsoft’s strict branding guidelines, the design and layout of the site is a result of several weeks of collaboration between our talented designers and Microsoft’s creative team.
With the primary goal of publishing independence, Microsoft handed us the task of migrating almost a decade of data from a proprietary system into WordPress, across 38 separate sites.
Our team built a custom WordPress theme that includes dynamic features like a featured hero grid that is editable from the front end, filterable multimedia galleries for images & videos.
Custom Plugin Development
The Microsoft News Center editorial staff can login using their MS Live credentials through a custom plugin we developed for a single sign on feature. Other custom plugin features include development for filtering, custom search, interactive timelines, and more.
A Multisite project with 38 unique sites that span 16 languages, all our custom development was created to be translation-ready and we worked closely with their language teams to build the individual language packs.
Support & Maintenance
We have developed a long-term relationship with Microsoft to provide ongoing support and maintenance for their News Center for updates, training and new feature requests.
