1.1 The Client

1.2 Critical Issue

CAAT was operating a legacy website wich was not compliant with regional AODA accessibility standards. The site had a poor user experience which affected the ability of CAAT to strategically achieve their goals. Sign ups for pension participants were low due to a poor navigation structure along with strategic tools such as pension calculators which were not functioning as intended. The organization itself was dedicating resources to customer experience on the website which could have been automated by better navigation and content strategy which resulted in additional internal cost to manage the site.


CAATs commitment to innovation and continuing to be a leader in the space drove a change in the website's approach to maximizing user experience and helping with operational efficiency.

2.1 Vision

The vision for their future digital experience was for audiences to have a seamless customer experience and for the site to be much more of a strategic tool for marketing and sales while also cutting down on the time management to deploy any strategies through the site. Additionally CAAT was looking for a unified design system that was scalable, accessible, and flexible enough for their team to use and implement.
