The Challenge

We are a member of the team, providing expert web development and support

Livingston International came to CACTUS with a number of web development and consultation needs. As North America’s number one customs brokerage, Livingston's web eco-system supports an ever growing number of functions. Our primary project was to build a large SEO optimized B2B marketing website in English and French. On the fly, the team needed to be able to create gated landing pages, update content and organizational content, and easily integrate Pardot® lead capturing forms. Working with the client's technical teams developing applications, we also needed to create an infrastructure and back-up system that allowed many developers to safely access the code and database. Finally, CACTUS was in charge of rolling out a number of smaller websites, keeping branding consistent across their network of online properties.

Make the diffucult tasks easy

Using familiar tools to create robust user experiences

Working with the Livingston marketing team, CACTUS designed and developed a custom WordPress theme. Using a CMS that was familiar with the team allowed them to easily create new content, while giving us the power to organize content, automate tasks, secure the website against malicious activity, and build custom templates to handle a variety of business verticals.
