As Raymond James grew, however, they realized they needed to update their existing website architecture to keep pace with their growth trajectory:
- The business relied on 7 different technology platforms to support their advisors’ unique sites
- Each advisor site could take anywhere from hours to days to launch — hampering their ability to do business right away
- Sites were not responsive — and often translated to disjointed experiences on mobile platforms

Time is money. This especially holds true for new advisors when they join Raymond James. Instead of waiting for days for new advisor sites to be published, we challenged ourselves to create a seamless CMS experience that would reduce the deployment of new site to a few minutes.
In addition, we invested in “create once, publish everywhere” capabilities to deliver global content across any screen and device.
One experience. A global advantage.
