Case Study: CNIB
CNIB Replaces Website Foundation to Enable Modern Functionality with Full Accessibility
"Our site is more professional-looking, dynamic, and constantly changing…. We now have a powerful vehicle for communicating with and educating the public on issues facing people who are blind."
- Michael Seaton, Director of Marketing, CNIB
CNIB (the Canadian National Institute of the Blind) wanted to modernize its website with new functionality while still being a model of accessibility. The marketing and IT staffs worked hand in hand with interactive agency Digiflare to overhaul the site in just three months by using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. The team used the many accessibility features included in SharePoint Server 2010 to make the site an accessibility showcase. Employees can post their own content, which encourages them to keep the site fresh and relevant. In fact, employees are so excited about using the site to help CNIB constituents that they are coming up with myriad ways to further improve the site. Fortunately, the IT staff has the time to implement these ideas, as it has been able to shift 90 percent of its time from maintenance work to new development.
