  • Taeke Reijenga: Autotaalglas – a Case Study

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Taeke Reijenga

    October 28, 2016 — Autotaalglas.nl is a well known windshield repair company in the Netherlands. Over a period of a year we redesigned and redeveloped their website doubling their online conversion in the first 2 months after launch.

    In this talk I will use Autotaalglas.nl as a case study to illustrate the importance of good UI and UX for a succesfull website. Running WordPress as a CMS has many advantages but it is not automatically making your website a great website.
    How did we achieve a doubling of conversion and what are we doing to hold on to the conversion increase? Knowing that on average a car owner has a windshield chip or crack once every seven years you will understand that it doesn’t make a loyal customer.
    How to keep developing the platform and giving the client an advantage over their competitors? By the time WordCamp Netherlands takes place we are implementing a new feature that connects the website to the planning tool of every repair shop to show availability.

    However, most developers struggle to understand how to split up their code to make it truly reusable, so they end up copy-pasting parts of code and modifying as needed, instead of effectively reusing the code that was already written, without a single change.
