One of the main focuses of the new site was to ensure platforms were aligned, reduced, and streamlined. Previously, there were several isolated microsites within the ISAPS estate which were hindering the user experience. We restructured site content into a more intuitive information architecture, with clear and easy-to-use navigation allowing users to find the information they are looking for quickly and with ease. The improved search bar function has enabled better discoverability and searchability. The use of dropdown menus and clear calls-to-action makes it simple to explore the site and access the various resources available, including news, events, and the video library.
Another key challenge was to simplify the member join journey, which we have achieved via clear, effective messaging and signposting. Users are now guided through the application process, which has minimised drop-off rates significantly. We have also made it considerably easier for existing members to access the wide range of services and key benefits ISAPS offers and manage their membership through appropriate integration between their CRM and the website. It is also now significantly easier to access the ISAPS APS Journal.
We improved the ‘Find a Surgeon’ directory function, with contact profile cards for all members, so users can now easily log in to the website to update their profile information. We also implemented a Dedicated Patients section to the website, allowing ISAPS to create mini sites within the main website by providing a secondary navigation level.
