Sceneric is proud to have been involved with the launch of the rebranded and redesigned MGM Advantage Designs for Retirement, website today

Engaged by MGM to design and implement the new content management system that powers, Sceneric utilised its recognised Usability & Design, Package Implementation and End-to-end Development Services to put together a combined technology and design team to deliver the site within 6 months.

Working in collaboration with MGM’s business and IT teams, Sceneric mobilised interaction designers and information architects to define standard templates, CMS consultants to define and build the workflow and a team of Java developers for system integration and developing additional functionality.

Features include:

The ability to update the site instantly as it is completely content managed through Magnolia, a browser based CMS built on the de-facto JSR170 content standard.

A dedicated customer section containing member information.

A dedicated Adviser section containing updated daily fund prices and a library of news and industry articles. Advisers searching for more detailed information about industry topics can browse the new library of articles and view them online or print them out.

Nick Williams – Head of Marketing said: “Their experience of implementing web solutions in the Life and Pensions industry was key to delivering the website. The drive, experience and professionalism of their consultants has been 2nd to none. ”

George Brandie, CEO of Sceneric said: “A successful online presence in the IFA market is an essential feature of successful product distribution and we are delighted to have been chosen to work with MGM to create their new web presence. The new website puts MGM in the right position to deliver the best products and service standards for their customers.”

The site has a clean, crisp interface and the Magnolia browser-based Content Management System allows the site to be updated on an hour-by-hour basis by MGM as required.

The site is part of MGM’s dedicated approach to leveraging technology to best serve both customers and financial advisers. It offers a useful collection of news, information and resources in a single place and is designed to support advisers in every aspect of their business and professional development.
