Case Study: Vitesse Semiconductor

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation

Engagement Summary

everse built a portal for Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation to provide customers and other users with company and product information. The dynamic, database-driven portal is highly responsive to the needs of the company and its customers.

Client Profile

Established in 1987, Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation is the leading designer and supplier of communications integrated circuits (ICs) for manufacturers of core, access, enterprise, metropolitan, and storage area network equipment.

Business Challenges

Vitesse's existing Web site did not communicate the company's position as a technology leader or provide significant value to customers and other users. In developing a new portal, the company faced a number of challenges:

  • The company's online image did not leverage its powerful offline brand identity.
  • The existing Web site included incomplete company and product information.
  • Content on the site was often outdated and was difficult to update.
  • The company needed to ensure the security of sensitive information published online.
everse Solution

everse developed a portal that effectively translates Vitesse's brand image online and provides its key audiences with valuable company and product information. The solution includes:

  • A registration application that enables qualified visitors to obtain access to secure, product-related technical documents.
  • A security and access management system that restricts information based on a user's security level and allows Vitesse to assign and adjust levels for all users.
  • A search engine that integrates custom code and a third-party solution to provide users with fast and accurate search capabilities.
  • Dynamic navigation that automatically displays links to related information for easy access and effective cross selling.
  • Content management tools that allow an administrator to make instant changes to the portal regardless of his/her level of technical expertise.
