Following a competitive tender process, After Digital is delighted to have been selected to develop the new website for leading Scottish visitor attraction - the Glasgow Science Centre (GSC).
Opened in 2001, the Glasgow Science Centre is a five star visitor attraction on the south bank of Glasgow’s River Clyde. Comprising three floors packed with interactive science exhibits that present a blend of science and technology, the centre aims to inspire and engage visitors. GSC selected After Digital to develop a new website in order to improve online access, raise awareness, improve Search Engine performance, sell tickets and integrate social media channels.
The new site will engage Glasgow Science Centre’s audiences, encourage pre and post-visit interaction with the centre and sustained learning. After Digital will apply its expertise to create a good looking and effective website which promotes the accessibility of information and a better overall user experience. The new design and content will reflect the quality of the centre’s exciting exhibitions, enhance the profile of GSC’s partnerships, foster interactions with schools and explain the charitable purpose of the Science Centre. Additionally, the site will offer increased capacity to book tickets online, supplementing other sales channels and enhancing the ease with which visitors can plan and organise a visit.
Ultimately, the new website will streamline online and offline activities and increase efficiency throughout, as well as establishing a modern and prominent online presence for the Glasgow Science Centre.
After Digital looks forward to working with the Centre to develop a fantastic new, interactive website.
Ian Wilson, Communications Manager at Glasgow Science Centre, said; “After Digital showed a winning mix of thoughtful research, technical capability, value and enthusiasm for the work. Our existing site has served us well for many years, but we need greater integration of social media, more capability to transact, a more modern CMS and a fresh look. I’ve got great expectations for the contribution the new site will make to the business.”
