Platform Migration | Enterprise Content Management | WordPress Themes
Investment News are the leading US publishers for everyone in the financial industry, from Financial Advisors to Chartered Accountants.
After being acquired, Investment New’s site needed migrating onto their new owner, Bonhill PLC’s, infrastructure. This included migrating their site from a legacy CMS to WordPress, and to Microsoft Dynamics, WooCommerce, and identity provider Fusion Auth.
Custom paywall & meter
Using Laravel and React, we developed a paywall and meter that effectively managed their gated content and encouraged more subscriptions with a free sign-up to view model.
Imports & Migrations
The migration included over 100,000 custom content and media imported from XML files and static resources, plus 70,000 legacy users and imported them to WooCommerce and identity provider FusionAuth.
WordPress & Woocommerce, Integrated
Investment News now runs with two separate, but integrated, WooCommerce and WordPress sites. This allowed the team to separate concerns, improve reliability, and enable better performance.
To better manage the site’s mass of content, containership was developed for the site to isolate legacy PHP applications.
