Joe Wheeler EMC and Powerful strived to create a focused and effective website strategy. After defining the scope and purpose of the new website, Powerful’s team of trusted web experts discovered that the Springwater Blueprint had the power to promote Joe Wheeler EMC’s services effectively while achieving its business objectives.
The Springwater Blueprint promotes Joe Wheeler EMC’s key services through a functional, organized, and intuitive structure. A website that is easy to use, navigate, and understand, makes it more likely for website visitors to engage with the services being promoted.

ChallengesAs Joe Wheeler EMC expanded its services to both electric and internet, their organization needed a website that clearly differentiated both services with intuitive design. While approaching this website redesign, Powerful and Joe Wheeler EMC were challenged to identify clear objectives for the redesign.
SolutionsJoe Wheeler EMC utilizes Powerful's Department Header package. Separate Electric and Internet tabs are easily recognizable and intuitive for members, so that they can quickly find the information they need. In addition to clear labeling, the department header also uses different colors and design elements to help visually distinguish between different service categories.
ResultsJoe Wheeler EMC's newly-designed website engages with members through visualized pages. Visuals help break down complex concepts into more digestible formats. By illustrating concepts or processes, people are more likely to remember information that is presented visually rather than in text form. As a result of effective and engaging content, the website resonates more with members, creating a positive online experience.
