Congratulations to our client FASTSIGNS – winners of ‘Outstanding Website’ in the WebAwards! client FASTSIGNS, an international signage company, has won an Outstanding Website Award in the 2016 WebAwards. 

The team created the FASTSIGNS website platform using the Progress Sitefinity Content Management System, which has been scaled to manage over 600 websites in total, across an international footprint. Each FASTSIGNS local center, which is a locally owned franchise, has been empowered to manage content which is unique to their location specific website on the platform, while still providing FASTSIGNS corporate teams with total ability to maintain umbrella control, with content management and dissemination across all sites. 

The FASTSIGNS website boasts impressive multi-site functionality; with a scalable architecture and simplified abilities to create additional websites. Platform wide functionality includes:  a robust geo-locator tool which auto detects the nearest FASTSIGNS locations to a user, an advanced search and content filtering experience powered by Hawk Search, a quote form engine, video streaming and the ability for customers to create their own ‘IDEABOOKS’, where they can compile ideas and designs they like by simply filtering or browsing through the thousands of visual examples and past projects within the FASTSIGNS website. 

We’re very proud to have worked with the team at FASTSIGNS to create a website that is impressive enough to be considered ‘Outstanding’ in the WebAwards Competition. The multi-site platform we built for the fast growing global franchise organization allows for expansion and new site creation from a single content management system, and includes many state of the art features and functionalities. We look forward to continuing to fulfill and exceed the expectations of FASTSIGNS.” Said Mike Svanascini, President of
