Ir Olav's Globetrotters reached out to Iquality because they were not happy with their current websites. One of the biggest hassles was the fact that the content managers didn't had the flexibility to adjust the website in the way that they wanted.
In addition, their website was not connected to their recruitment software. One of the main functions of both websites is to showcase the open vacancies and to have the ability to apply on those vacancies. An integration between the website and the recruitment software would make life easier for the content managers.
A smart content model is the key to a good content management experience. The content model starts from the design system. We have translated the visual design into a design system according to atomic design principles. The organisms (or patterns as we call them) are translated into blocks in DatoCMS. By delivering the content model prior to the website's delivery, we received the right feedback just in time to refine the model.
Ronald Nieuwenhuis, Teamlead at Iquality, says: “Content modeling is very often done by developers as part of implementing the frontend. In our opinion it is a seperate discipline which requires the right experience.”
Job metadata was available in their existing recruitment software, so why not use it? But as always, not all the information, for example page SEO data, is available in this system. So why not fill this gap by using DatoCMS for this type of information? In this case, there was no need to import vacancies into the CMS system, but we did use DatoCMS to enrich the vacancy data. On the website we present a combination of data from the recruitment software and the DatoCMS system. The best of both worlds!
