Sipa Resources upgrades Website and Annual Report

Perth-based Australian gold, base metals, and nickel exploration company – Sipa Resources Limited recently chose IRM for redevelopment of its website, and production of both printed and online Annual Reports.

Sipa Resources Limited and IRM had been working together for many years based on the IRM Newsroom service embedded in the old website. Evolution of the Sipa business created the need for better communication with investors, and so they chose IRM for both the new website and the Annual Report.

About Sipa Resources Limited

Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1987, Sipa Resources Limited (ASX Code: SRI) is a Perth-based Australian gold, base metals and nickel exploration company with a proven track record.

The brief

With Sipa Resources Limited’s change of Managing Director, a refresh in the board, and shift from the shores of Australia to Uganda – the new team wanted their new website to reflect not only their recent company update but also reflect the latest user interface and design.

They liked the IRM Newsroom product, and felt that a more seamless integration with an upgraded website and Annual Report design presented a clearer, more consistent message to investors.

Sipa acknowledged their old website had some inadequate content and outdated design, and felt that the company should be better presented, particularly the grassroots discovery aspect which is key to the company’s story.

A key feature of the new website is the very comprehensive projects section. The full explanation of the potential of the projects gives investors greater confidence that Sipa knows its business and is excited by the potential.

Sipa is also very active in the community in Uganda, and the Social Responsibility section reinforces the company’s engagement with the local community, which is key to ongoing success.

The solution

We refreshed Sipa’s website with a modern design and new content taking into account their exploration attributes: e.g. using the map as the website’s background actually includes the location of their projects.

A more modern overall design was provided that showcased their company, project, sustainability, and investor information in a much clearer way that is easy to navigate and simple to digest.

The use also of their provided imagery that isn’t stock photos also makes the site unique and a perfect fit for the rebranding they needed.

The Annual Report produced by our Design team under Art Director Matt White is also presented online using the IRM Silver Annual Report product. http://www.sipa.com.au/irm/content/annualreport/2015/index.html

Find a broker with the new NZ brokers website

There are thousands of companies offering insurance brokerage services on the internet.

Finding the right broker can be a strenuous process but in this post we’ll feature the NZ brokers ‘Find a broker’ site that helps make it a little easier.

About NZ brokers

The brief

After leading financial institution, AUB Group Ltd (ASX: AUB) formed NZ brokers, they wanted to offer two key pieces of functionality:

  • The new ‘Find a broker’ feature which would enable NZ customers and potential customers to easily find brokers within their desired location:

  • A new blog section, through which to keep current and potential customers across the company’s latest news:

The solution

In order to deliver consistency across both NZ brokers and AUB Group’s sites, the new NZ brokers website was developed in line with the corporate website framework and structure of AUB Group’s, but using the styles and colours which matched NZ brokers’ style guide.

This website was built in a fully responsive fashion, allowing it to work across all mobile devices. It features the ‘Find a broker’ option where existing and potential customers can search for a broker by location or by name, and then results are shown inside an embedded interactive map with contact information.

NZ brokers also installed a blog through which to keep their audience apprised of their latest news and updates.  The blog was built using WordPress, and was designed to fit in seamlessly with the look and feel of the NZ brokers’ corporate site. It is housed within the news centre and the business has already developed a following through regularly posting news pieces to its audience.  You can check out the blog at blog.nzbrokers.co.nz or read the top three latest post through the red teaser box on the homepage.
