Mandt System

A better way to reduce workplace violence 

If we were allowed to say we had favorite clients, Simon and Kevin of Mandt would certainly be in contention for the top spot. Flattery aside, though, we are proud to have gotten multiple chances to work with them and help further their mission of reducing workplace violence. Regarding this project, Mandt enlisted GLIDE to modernize their website and improve the visitor journey from start to signing up for training.

An illustrative style

It’s great working with clients for the second time because by then we have their trust and we’re able to take more risks. In this case, we pivoted from using photography in the hero banners to a modern illustrative style. This allows key messaging to come into focus, while the graphics fall back as supporting elements. Illustrations are clean and highly versatile.

A simplified journey

One of the keys to conversion is simplifying and guiding the experience. If you give somebody too many options, they have trouble making a decision (the paradox of choice). Our goal is always to break the decision making process into bite-sized chunks. For the Mandt site, we offer two options up front (in-person or e-learning), then drill down one more layer and that’s it.

A dash of delight

Since site launch, we are constantly thrilled to hear about the enthusiastic response they’ve gotten from visitors. Success can (and must) be measured in terms of concrete goals, but the GLIDE team is only satisfied when a site performs well AND produces that intangible feeling we call delight. What a joyful collaboration!

I have worked with GLIDE on several sites because they simply are the best.  This is a very thoughtful team that covers everything from best practices, cutting edge trends, and amazing design. Every time I work with this group, I am continually AMAZED!!  You would be an idiot not to choose GLIDE for your next site!!!
