Monarch developed a trio of web sites for Access Energy Solutions. All of the sites emphasize functionality, but are attractive and responsive. Using bright colors and elegant images, the sites' overall designs portray how LED lighting can benefit contractors, property management and end customers.
The corporate identity site, aes-led.com, is a corporate brochure and gateway to the other sites, each of which appeal to very different audiences. The main Access Energy Solutions site is designed primarily as a one-page, scrolling brochure. The site has fluid, single column regions, a smart navigation bar that sticks to the top of the browser window and smooth region transitions.
Distribution site. Designed for electrical contractors, construction companies and corporate accounts, volumeled.com is an opt-in e-commerce solution. The site borrows many of the design elements from the corporate site, but this site is designed to be used on larger, screen devices, so responsiveness was not a priority. Monarch developed a complete inventory and ordering system with extensive SOLR searching and filtering. As their inventory is continually changing, Access Energy personnel keep a master spreadsheet of products and variations. Monarch developed a product import process, allowing non-technical users to completely replace the existing inventory of products or to simply perform an update from the master spreadsheet.
Future sites. In the near future, Access Energy Solutions will release a a site targeted to property managers and organzations to provide the service of converting their exiting lighting needs to energy-efficient LED's. Like the corporate identify site, this site will be a scrolling brochure. In the longer term future, Access Energy Solutions will develop another site for retail consumers to research and purchase LED lighting and other energy solutions.
