Part of the Gleneagles Group, a family-run enterprise for nearly sixty years representing a selection of Ireland’s best known hotel and entertainment destinations
The marketing team in the INEC are very dynamic and they had created an ambitious brief for the overdue website design. During the tender process, Matrix outlined the detailed UX planning process we employ and the methodologies behind it. As one of the major entertainment venues in Ireland and part of a wider group, the website had several objectivers. The primary objective was to create a smooth user experience for the patrons of the INEC, allowing them to find events easily and book their tickets quickly.
Our UX and development teams conducted some intensive workshops with the marketing team of the INEC. These sessions proved to be hugely beneficial to the planning process and the findings included :
- detailed psychological personas were created and provided huge insights into the needs of the customers at different points of the booking process
- the core values and perceived strengths of the INEC were discussed in detail
- wireframe options were created for the main sections of the website including the booking process and search options
Our developers had detailed discussions with the 3 main booking engines / partners that are integrated with the INEC website, ensuring a seamless experience for the customer.
The website has a very mobile first feel to is, with full width responsive design. The event search engine is always prominent and has user friendly filters built in.

what people say
WoofAdvisor Working with the team at Matrix Internet has been a very positive and rewarding experience. As a (one man) non techie startup founder, undertaking a very ambitious and complex website, finding the right web agency was absolutely critical. The team's approach was perfect: a couple of preliminary workshops to make sure everyone fully understood the brief, target market, bullseye customer etc., followed by the creation of a number of very insightful Personas and accompanying Scenarios. This approach continued through to completion, with helpful advice and insightful suggestions at every stage of the project, many of which found their way into the finished design and functionality. While I felt some of these were not have been fully covered by the brief, there was zero slippage on budget. The project was delivered 100% to the agreed budget, which was highly competitive to start with. User testing undertaken by me has been universally positive in terms of Design, Layout, (the many) Features, and most importantly, Ease of Use. I really don't do recommendations lightly, but Matrix Internet have successfully turned my dream into a reality that I am very proud of, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
