Client Story

Reengineering The User Experience For The Growth Of An Award-Winning Brand


Koodo Mobile is one of the most successful low-cost mobile phone providers in Canada. Over the past few years, Koodo Mobile has experienced significant growth, which has forced the company to quickly adapt and change its business model to serve the needs of their growing customer base

What They Needed

The Challenge

One of the most significant bottlenecks that Koodo Mobile faced was in their web presence, which quickly became insufficient for their business needs.

More specifically, Koodo Mobile faced the following challenges:
  • A website that was increasingly difficult to manage and maintain.
  • A customer base that was increasingly accessing their website on mobile devices (i.e. smartphones and tablets).
  • Increasing maintenance costs that were outpacing justified expenditures.
  • Customer demands growing and changing at an increasing rate.
  • Increasing costs to service customers and infrastructure.
  • Customer service quality was decreasing to a level unacceptable to Koodo Mobile.
  • Customers demanding increased online capabilities.

What We Did

The Process

In order to handle the increasing demands of doing business, Koodo Mobile reached out to TechBlocks for assistance. TechBlocks then put their creative team to work developing a self-service portal solution.

After just a few months, TechBlocks created the following solutions for Koodo Mobile’s challenges:
  • Creation of new web pages and features for the Koodo Mobile website.
  • Redesign of outdated pages and elements on the Koodo Mobile website.
  • Self-service portal design and creation, which provides customers with access to an FAQ and other do-it-yourself customer solutions.
  • A modern search platform that provides both customers and Koodo Mobile employees with fast access to information.
  • A brand new website backbone, built on a robust enterprise content management system.
  • A fully mobile-responsive website that automatically conforms to any device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.

The Solution

The TechBlocks solution utilized one of the latest and most reliable Content Management System (CMS) to create Koodo Mobile’s self-service portal. The platform is both stable and flexible.

The specific technologies used include:

  • DNN Evoq Content
  • Google Search
  • Microsoft ASP .NET
  • Responsive HTML5 / CSS3

“TechBlocks has been able to deliver quality work on tight deadlines. They demonstrated immense flexibility in working with us in terms of budget, style, and schedules. We have been extremely satisfied with the customized solutions…and look forward to collaborating again with them in the future.”
