National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities (NICHY)

National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities needed to redesign their website and change the CMS in order to keep the content fresh and attract more visitors. The new site had to provide multiple ways for searching the information, integrate social media tools and a simple clean interface.

The new website received 2011 Achievement Award for increased usability and search functionality, the establishment of a model policy for social media in non-profit resource dissemination.

AmDee demonstrates both superior technical skills and the ability to listen to and understand our unique needs. We would recommend AmDee to any organization that is looking to improve their web presence and accessibility.

Sharepoint didn’t allow the NICHY staff to quickly create and publish content. Combined with limited technical knowledge of how to use SharePoint, they felt that adding new features and changing the layouts was difficult. They also believed SharePoint to be very expensive for both hosting and maintenance.

  • Quickly create and publish new content
  • Add new features
  • Change the layouts easily
