The Challenge

As TransUnion diversified and grew its product portfolio through acquisition and innovation, it was important visitors could quickly understand the breadth of its B2B offering and quickly find the solutions of greatest interest to them. The goal of the website redesign was to standardize interaction design to improve increased lead generation and content discovery.

The Solution

Enhancing brand strategy for target audiences

Walker Sands laid the groundwork for the site redesign with audience persona research. Our creative team conducted over 30 interviews with representatives from a diverse cross-section of TransUnion’s target audience segments. These interviews provided new insight into TransUnion’s target users for each of its products and services and how they viewed the website within their buyer journey.

Next, our team reviewed TransUnion’s keyword landscape, website analytics and competitor websites to inform copy templates for each of the 20 designed layouts.

We then used TransUnion’s updated product and solution architecture to restructure its sitemap. By organizing the navigation by solution, industry and business need, we created user flows that allow its audiences to easily self-segment to their needs. 

Developing and testing responsive wireframe templates

We partnered with TransUnion to conduct validation testing on three versions of the proposed navigation. The resulting information enabled us to optimize and update content structure, organization and labels with confidence that it would lead to the ideal user experience.

Finally, the Walker Sands creative team partnered with TU’s digital experiences team to user-test 20 responsive wireframe templates for mobile, tablet and desktop. We restructured TransUnion’s existing content hierarchy for clarity and cleaner visuals, improving content discoverability.

The Results

With an insight-led and data-informed updated site design, TransUnion’s B2B site was positioned for growth among its targeted audiences. Through standardized, intuitive interaction design, TransUnion was able to improve lead generation and content discovery.

“The Walker Sands team was a true partner in our web experience redesign. I was impressed at their ability to quickly understand our wide array of target audiences and distill insights into a more intuitive website experience. We’re already seeing tremendous across-the-board web performance improvements as a result.”
