Site Updates, Maintenance, & SEO
In 2014 we worked with a second developer that created the initial build of the Tidel WordPress site. After learning how they developed the site, we took it over and now provide updates and maintenance as needed. This includes updating WordPress itself and the associated plugins, building new pages, and adding and removing new and outdated content.
Our latest efforts for Tidel are SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and Online Marketing. We have optimized the site’s pages for search engines and are working with Tidel on leveraging their overall online presence for the best sales and marketing results.
HTML5 Interactive Training & Configuration Tools
One of Tidel’s flagship products is the Series 4/4e cash controller. This sophisticated device has numerous functions, all activated through a touchscreen LCD panel. In addition, there are 10 optional peripherals that expand functionality.
The initial need was to provide easy-to-access online training for end users. We created 68 interactive training modules that include 3D renderings and animated videos, audio voice-over, and a simulated interactive LCD panel so that users could learn and practice the Series 4/4e’s functionality before using the actual device. In addition, Tidel sales staff also use this tool to show the product’s functionality to potential clients.
Another interactive project for Tidel is the Configuration Tool. The Series 4/4e and it’s peripherals can be configured in over 500,000 different ways. This tool allows sales staff or potential customers to configure a system that meets their needs, while ensuring hardware compatibility. The end result is a list of the user’s custom configuration that can be saved as a PDF file and/or emailed to others.
Mini-Site with Rotating Banner, Designed with HTML5
Tidel Financial Services is the financing arm of Tidel. The need here was for a small, compact site that showed Offerings and Benefits, and encouraged clients to contact Tidel for more info. The entire site is built in HTML5 and includes a rotating banner and downloadable PDF, and is designed to work on a tablet or computer/laptop.

In addition, we have taken executive head shots, employee group photos, and shots in the manufacturing plant. The final photos are used in both online and print marketing pieces.
