Horizon Services is one of the nation's leading home service providers. They needed to consolidate their web presence onto a customizable, modern platform.
Horizon Services needed to move away from a restrictive proprietary CMS, and onto an opensource platform
that could offer greater customization. The client had already settled on WordPress as a platform, but
they had an extraordinary amount of content to move to the new platform, and a short amount of time to
do it in.
Moving the content over from the old cms was no small task. There was no interoperability between the
existing cms and WordPress, so we needed to roll out our own. Sometimes the old ways are best. We created a
custom web scraper, and traversed the client's existing site, and created the new WordPress structure
programmatically, saving countless hours of work.
Horizon Services is a growing a vibrant leader in the home service industry. After the new site was
launched and deployed, they had plans to constantly improve their marketing presence. We continued to
work with Horizon over the ensuing months post launch, adding features and content. We also helped fold
additional websites into the Horizon brand, standardizing them on WordPress.
