Background

Power Systems Consulting (PSC) is an independent global provider of planning, delivery, and support to the electricity industry. Their business is split between hands-on engineering labor services and higher-level advisory services in HVDC, power networks, and more. Even though they handle some of the biggest infrastructure projects in the world, their site didn’t have a world-class look. And when you’re going up against global consultancies and major engineering vendors, you need to give your clients confidence from the get-go. Sayenko Design stepped in to project PSC’s reputation of “Helping Utilities Power the World.”

PSC Consulting

Website Strategy

The foundation of project success centered on targeting four unique personas:

1. Need a Hand
These are PSC’s core labor supply customer. They provide PSC with lots of business, but each project is smaller and more time consuming, especially since they are price conscious. We provided just enough up-front information to get them on the phone.

2. Upgraders
This persona needs advisory services to plan and execute projects outside of their expertise. We had to make sure they understood the value of PSC specialists from start to finish, giving them a lot of information in case studies that built PSC’s reputation.

3. Researchers
The other main customer that PSC helps are far higher up in the process of a project, just testing feasibility and pilot projects. We provided them with a content discovery journey through blogs, white papers, and more, proving PSC’s thought leadership. That way, they’d believe in the company’s abilities on unproven ventures.

4. Partners
PSC also supplements larger consultancies and vendors by supplying their specialists. We gave them a breadcrumb trail of information proving that PSC crew would help them in a pinch and stay on budget.

Standing Out In B2B With A Complete About Page

With big budgets and long term projects on the line, PSC’s customers need absolute trust before hiring a firm. We structured an About page that delved into “Who” with full PSC leadership bios, “What” with their mission and vision, and “Why” with their Values. Any visitor who got that far would know by then whether they liked this team.

Emphasis On Consultancy Solutions Vs. Labor Supply

We helped PSC pivot their website’s focus to many new in-depth pages on their consultancy, which are easy to filter so leads can quickly locate relevant information. Each page discusses the planning, delivery, support model, and cross-sells between them once a visitor is there.

Robust Case Studies

The final part of the customer journey for most of the personas is some proof, which is where these case studies came in. We helped PSC show that they were on time, on budget, every time. It also gave them a chance to name drop the larger firms they’ve helped, like GE, which lends instant credibility.

Powerful Recruiting Applicant System

PSC is only as good as its team members. Sourcing quality team players, experts and thought leaders is an important part of the website objective. We created a robust careers application system with the ability to filter by job function and location, helping candidates quickly get to the right jobs. All submissions are collected on the back-end for easy HR management.

A Word from the Team

Nik Ramar Wordpress Developer Sayenko Design

“It’s always a fun challenge helping a client sort its desired customers from its less valuable ones, without fully cutting them off. The amount and depth of the old site’s content required a lot of thought to organize, which meant really pushing a robust strategy to keep it easy to navigate. And the PSC team was great to work with.”

~ Nik Amar, Strategist

“The emphasis on left-brain right-brain fusion during the design phase really required a new approach. Basically, we had to marry the emotional connection of the right brain type and in-depth content for the left brain type A personality. The design needed to be modern and forward-thinking, but not too edgy. It was an interesting challenges to tackle!”

~ Mike Sayenko, UI/ UX Designer

Kyle Rumble Wordpress Developer Sayenko Design

“I really enjoyed how all the data was organized, like the informational architecture between the different custom post types. The quality testing had to be buttoned down because of the client’s global reach and numerous stakeholders. And as for helping train them use the site, it’s a ton of fun. I love working with people.”
