We are very pleased to have launched a new website for one of our long-standing clients, Kingdom Services Group. Kingdom is one of the largest independent and privately-owned companies specialising in security, facilities management, environmental protection and recruitment in the UK, Ireland and South Asia. DBS originally built Kingdom’s previous site when the focus of their business was on providing security. Since then their business has grown, evolved and expanded, and now consists of four key services - Environmental Protection, Facilities Management, Recruitment and Security Solutions. The new website better reflects and showcases these services, as well as new branding for each service.We have given the site a much more modern look and feel than the previous version, including making use of the entire width of the screen and making good use of images, videos and brochures throughout. This includes video bios of all of Kingdom’s leadership team. We have also made the site more user friendly, with a new “mega menu” for easier navigation, and new sector pages, so that clients can search by the industries they’re in as well as the service they’re looking for. The website will now also display better on a range of different mobile devices, making it easier to view and to navigate. Commenting on the launch of the new website, Kingdom’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mark Wallace said: “It is wonderful to see all the hard work that has gone into this finally reach its conclusion.“I am absolutely delighted with the new website and feel that is far better reflects the service that Kingdom offers to clients today, and hope that our clients and other users also like the new site and enjoy visiting it as much as I do.”
