AllForWeb has a team of designers, developers and SEO specialists.
Historically, the agency has been using WordPress as a tool to build its clients’ websites. The problem with WordPess is that developers are heavily involved in both building the back-end and developing most of the front-end; this is mostly due to WordPress monolithic architecture and the dependencies it involves in the code. Therefore, for some of the projects, WordPress becomes too heavy and quickly too expensive for the agencie's clients.
What AllForWeb wanted is to empower the team's designers by giving them more responsibility on the front-end while optimizing the time spent by its developers, making them focus on value-added tasks mainly on the back-end.
Thanks to WeWeb’s new generation visual site builder, AllForWeb was able to achieve its desire: the designers are autonomous to design and build most of the front-end visually and developers are not stuck with a rigid proprietary solution as they can easily get into the code, connect their own back-end or add custom components in the editor.
As a result, sites are delivered faster, with more efficient use of resources, without compromising on the flexibility of the tools used.
The other reason why WeWeb was adopted by AllForWeb is for its integrated components’ management system: components are built once by developers or designers, saved in the agencie’s private design system in the tool, and can be reused on any projects - no dependency to a theme anymore.
The more the agency uses the tool, the more efficient it becomes as it can reuse components from different projects and save precious development time.
Finally, AllForWeb being a “conversion first” agency, it had to pay extra attention to the quality of the deliverable and the web-performance in particular.
With WordPress, Allforweb was spending a lot of time optimizing websites to achieve high performances on Google Lighthouse. With WeWeb, the web-performance comes out-of-the-box as all the files generated are automatically pre-rendered and the images size are optimized. AllForWeb can either choose to push to production in one-click using WeWeb’s integrated connexion with Amazon's CDN CloudFront, or they can download the built files and host them on a separate infrastructure for their clients.
This extra time saved on performances is passed on to the end client, either by spending more time on the UX or by billing at a more competitive price.
