Client and recruitment engagement grows with improved digital user experience°
One of the world’s largest independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies, Anadarko, needed a modernized website, as well as two smaller sites, to better reflect the current position of the company. The initiative required global integration across several divisions of the company. Over the decade, Anadarko has turned to us for strategic challenges ranging from HR recruiting initiatives to communications tools.
What We Did
- Developed three responsive, scalable websites with user experiences
- Communicated the global brand story
- Increased online visibility and usability
How We Did It
- Conducted key stakeholder interviews and in-depth assessment
- Used proof points and highlighted company values throughout the platforms
- Improved content strategy and user experience
The demand of Anadarko’s global audience was changing – from investors to client and even its talent pool. To stay relevant, it needed a better content management solution as well as a modernized and more robust user experience across all three of its enterprise-level websites – Anadarko.com, WesternGas.com and MZLNG.com.
Develop seamless experience
We built a robust, responsive and enterprise-ready website with incredibly intuitive navigation to enhance the user experience across any device. The new website the Anadarko story in a more compelling way by reorganizing, updating and in some cases expanding the current content offering throughout the site in an effort to deliver a better experience and drive engagement for all audiences.
Enable new capabilities
The company’s IT department announced that it would no longer support Microsoft Sharepoint, upon which the company’s previous website was built and maintained. Through our content management system, SAM, we equipped Anadarko’s internal team with the ability to make updates and adjustments as needed, and without help from IT. The SAM platform, which is capable of publishing in any language worldwide with no design restrictions allowed for Anadarko’s unrestricted communication goals.
Improve online visibility
We implemented and improved search engine optimization (SEO) elements across the enterprise-level site to ensure it would rank highly and be found by the right audience and search engines. Through an enhanced keyword strategy, content strategy and improving the overall user experience to ensure all content is easy to access and as shareable as possible, we were able to help drive more traffic to the site.
“We often refer to SAM as the ‘Swiss army knife’ of Web Content Management systems. It also pairs well with virtually any programming language or software. Because it is exceptionally easy to maintain, we find many of our enterprise-level clients vastly prefer it over other solutions.”

We increased Anadarko’s reach through responsible, responsive design and improved search engine optimization. Immediately post-launch, the site received an overall traffic increase of 10%. We also saw a 10% increase in form submissions, indicating higher interest and engagement from all target audiences.
The easy-to-use SAM interface allows the Anadarko internal team to make updates and adjustments to its new website, without requiring assistance from IT. With additional ongoing support from our team, we helped unburden the IT department and empower the marketing team to take control of its primary communication platform.
