Black Sun launches multilingual mobile web App for Uralkali
Black Sun’s digital corporate communications team has helped its client, Uralkali, meet the needs of its increasingly mobile stakeholders by integrating the latest HTML5 and web technologies to launch a multilingual mobile web App.
Business stakeholders have become more demanding expecting to access information from anywhere, at any time, and on any device including mobiles and tablets. Uralkali recognised this growing trend amongst its investors and customers and asked Black Sun to devise a multilingual mobile strategy to address their needs.
“As the way stakeholders access corporate information changes, and more digital communications channels become available, it is more important than ever to manage information effectively to ensure that the corporate story is communicated consistently.” says Dominic Walters, Director of Digital Communications, Black Sun. “Our technology strategy ensures that our clients can manage their information quickly, consistently and cost effectively across multiple channels.”
Black Sun set out to develop a solution that not only met Uralkali’s communications needs but also exploited the latest technologies. The best of HTML 5 was combined with other mobile technologies and then integrated with Uralkali’s content management system enabling them to update information once but allowing them to publish to multiple locations.
The new App solution is available in Russian and English, offers targeted content to investors and customers, and has been built in HTML 5, therefore giving access from any mobile device without having to download it from iTunes or other app stores.
It enables users to read content even when out of coverage, and provides a ‘briefcase’ feature to save articles of most interest. The App is integrated with Uralkali’s content management system ensuring content is not entered multiple times and can be managed via one system.
“Having seen more and more people accessing our websites via mobile devices, we knew that we had to respond to this and offer a better user experience across multiple devices.” says Alevtina. “Black Sun has really helped us to develop a flexible solution that lets us easily communicate with our most important stakeholders.”
