Responsive Build Kit

Challenge

Many CPG companies with multiple brands struggle to deliver consistent cross-channel brand experiences to their target audiences. This is partly due to the myriad of external agency partners charged with managing the executional elements of the marketing programs.

In the case of Web sites, multiple technology platforms increase the complexity and limit scalability making them difficult and inefficient to manage.

Additionally, the role of the brand Web site is changing, as many consumer engagement programs now happen through Social and Mobile channels. Search ranking is becoming more important, effective SEO depends on simple content updates and page tagging.
As malware, hackers and viruses proliferate, processes to safeguard the website 24/7 become critical.
