Joomla Software Upgrade Improves Client's Ability to Maintain Site

Simmons Machine Tool Corporation

Simmons Machine Tool has a long history of manufacturing machine tools for the global railroad industry.

The Problem

When we first met Simmons Machine Tool in 2012, they were running on a very old version of Joomla 1.5 and it had been established in a way that did not allow for easy content updates. 4Web created a brand-new custom Joomla 2.5 website for them back then. Fast-forward to 2015 and they were ready to become mobile-friendly and upgrade their Joomla again.

The Solution

Working closely with the Simmons project team, we were able to deliver a site that is easy and intuitive to update.

Simmons serves a very specialized niche so it was important to get their products and projects into their website. We created a custom Joomla template that allows for photo galleries, embedded video, animated slideshows and copy to showcase company products and history. These updates will provide them with improved search engine ranking. The new responsive Joomla 3 website will serve them for many years to come.


We achieved our goals of updating our website and vastly improved our ability to maintain our website as well as add additional content.
