ACCO Corporate

ACCO Corporate and Brands

Unifying Content and Commerce Under the Episerver Platform

With disparate and disconnected systems for managing its digital business, ACCO Brands required a solution that placed its brand teams in more control over message while increasing speed to market for new digital products. This included the need to harness brand storytelling alongside optimized

product pages as well as account management and checkout experiences.


C2 and ACCO partnered to create Helix, a program for managing and scaling a multi-brand implementation on Episerver. Helix leverages a design system and Atomic Design principles with a shared, reusable code base, to accelerate design and development and significantly reduce scope. Templates, functionality, and integrations can now be built once and shared across brands, while still affording brand teams a unique look and feel within a cohesive corporate experience. 

A.O. Smith Intranet

A.O. Smith Intranet

Setting the Standard for the Corporate Intranet Experience

Over the course of 15 years, business growth and global expansion found hot water and boiler system leader A. O. Smith in need of a new, internal-facing website to better serve evolving employee needs across the globe. The intranet, AOSNET, serves to unify the company and its international

employee network, supplying documents, policies, corporate news and happenings, benefits information, and help desk requests in multiple languages across seven countries. For more than four years, The C2 Group has provided A. O. Smith with technical leadership and long-term digital strategy for its web properties. In addition to redesigning the public-facing site and providing A. O. Smith’s managed services, C2 was tapped to help transform the ordinary corporate intranet into a highly usable and engaging employee destination.

Banc of California Stadium

Banc of California Stadium

Agile Sprints to a First-Class Experience

BCS needed a website to match the modernized venue experience from the physical stadium itself. Given BCS’s need to appeal to broad audiences, ease of content creation and management was crucial. With a tight timeline to complete the site prior to opening, The C2 Group stepped in with an agile project approach

to deliver a quick-to-market CMS solution. Intuitive and optimized for mobile devices, the site provides an elegant experience for viewing venue information, amenities, and event details. Using iterative sprints for design and development, C2 was able to deliver a unique web solution in 10 weeks and under budget.

KentuckianaWorks Career Calculator

KentuckianaWorks Career Calculator

A Data-Driven Approach to Workforce Development

KentuckianaWorks is the workforce development arm for the City of Louisville, the 17th-largest city in the U.S. and a top-50 media market. Committed to helping the public navigate the demands of a 21st-century labor market, KentuckianaWorks partnered with The C2 Group on a career-focused application

that better informs the public on educational choices and career opportunities. This "Career Calculator" application was the centerpiece of a workforce development initiative resulting in Louisville’s awarding of a 2016 U.S. Conference of Mayors National Pathways with a Purpose Award and a $100,000 grant.

Moody Publishers

Moody Publishers - Reclaiming the Ecommerce Experience

Finalist for "Best eCommerce" Website in the 2015 Episerver North America Website Awards

Leveraging the Episerver e-commerce system's out-of-the-box functionality, C2 was able to provide longtime cilent, Moody Publishers, with a robust e-commerce manager. The redesign tackled significant business and user experience

problems by eliminating the need for users to "change channels" to complete orders. Previously, users had to check out through a secondary site and third-party vendor, which confused users by presenting an opportunity to purchase from competing retailers. Now, moodypublishers.com is a cohesive, one-stop shopping experience across multiple devices that provides the Publishers team exclusive control over e-commerce efforts vital to long-term viability.
