M7 Real Estate Success Story

An Epik website migration

How Epik migrated a large, complex multinational website across 14 different language sites without a single error.

The Client

M7 Real Estate
A leading European Fund & Asset Manager with 16 offices in 14 countries. M7 manages over 830 industrial, office, and retail properties with a value of c. €5BN.

The Challenge

Completely re-design and migrate the English and 14 multi-language individual country websites with over 3000 pages of content without a single error.

Enhance performance, especially on mobile and improve navigation, user journeys and measured site outcomes.

The Solution

We adopted a four-stage process:


Robust and rigorous process in close collaboration with the client, including a workshop to understand business objectives and how the website could help achieve them. We used Google Analytics to understand the existing site’s performance and identify critical pages. We produced a full technical 27-page SEO audit with elements for improvement prioritised into Critical, High, Medium and Low. The site plan was re-worked and all pages wireframed to improve navigation and user journeys.


We evolved the look and feel of the brand, developing it to reflect the status of a dynamic modern company and futureproofing it. Next, all desktop pages were designed with a complete set of responsive pages, and all assets were exported with detailed guides and examples for the developers. Development included complete URL redirect mapping and pre-launch redirect testing.


We married beautiful design with a pixel-perfect build.  We compiled a comprehensive pre-launch checklist and ran advanced testing.


We are conducting post-launch training, monitoring, updates and optimisation.
