The Office of Marketing & Communications at EVMS recently engaged in a rigorous RFP process to select and engage a website vendor to assist us in improving our website. The process included writing and releasing a request for proposals; reviewing seven vendor proposals; contacting references; and hearing representatives from the finalist companies speak to the Web Advisory Committee and to an open campus meeting.
We are pleased to announce that the new website vendor will be iFactory, a division of RDW Group, in Boston, Mass. iFactory has many years of experience in developing large, complex websites for a diverse array of non-profit, higher-education and commercial clients. Their proposal demonstrated that they understand we have a variety of audiences with differing needs and have the technical and design expertise to meet those needs.
The project will begin with a kick-off meeting to be scheduled as soon as possible. The kick-off meeting will start the website improvement process by bringing the iFactory team to EVMS to hold initial interviews with key stakeholders and conduct focus groups. More information will be provided here as it becomes available.
Some of our favorite examples from iFactory’s portfolio include:
- Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia
- Harvard Business School MBA Program
- Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions
- The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania
- Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard
