Client Case Study

FightSports.tv

Project Summary

The Fight Sports team turned to SURGOSTREAM to move them away from a proprietary CMS with limited functionality and flexibility to an open-source WordPress-powered CMS that would put them more in charge of their longterm growth. The positive impact this had in just 12-months has been massive.

FIGHTSPORTS needed freedom from an inflexible, overpriced proprietary CMS that was limiting their growth. We helped them migrate all their content to a custom implementation of WordPress and develop custom plugins to fit their specific publishing and editorial needs.

Dynamic Homepage

We create a clean homepage design. It’s responsive to be highly readable to a global audience consuming the site on any device. The site was programmed to efficiently loads resource-draining media files and live data feeds via ajax to speed up page load.

Thanks for helping us get here!

Athlete Database

We significantly simplified the athlete database portion of the site by creating an athlete custom post types and custom taxonomies within WordPress and using the WordPress API to allow the FightSports team to continue using existing custom tools to update profiles or to update directly from the CMS.

Highly Responsive

We engineered the site to load quickly on any type of device.

Social Media Growth

Summary Stats

FIGHTSPORTS will now save tens of thousands of dollars previously being paid on license fees for a proprietary content management system that seemed to be causing more problems than it was solving for them.

Because they now use an open source system and the same CMS used by many fortune 1000 companies, they have unlimited flexibility and power to grow as much as they can without compromise.
