Mobile Infirmary Medical Center Chooses Estrada to Power Web Site
July 16, 2001
Gandalf Development, Inc. is pleased to announce that Mobile Infirmary Medical Center recently launched a new web site, powered by Estrada Web Technology, a sophisticated Internet content management and development system. Mobile Infirmary is the largest nongovernmental, not-for-profit hospital in Alabama.
Estrada enables Mobile Infirmary’s non-technical personnel to create web pages without learning computer programming, to continuously update web information immediately without transferring files. Estrada enables individual departments to update their own areas of the web site without relying on a webmaster. In addition, content review features allow editors in the marketing department to review updates before they are published.
Thanks to Estrada’s features, future plans include enabling patients to register online for events, a human resources area with up-to-the-minute employment opportunities and resumé-submission, online health publications, and a special media crisis communications area.
“With our previous web consultant, it often took so long to make changes to the site that events were over before we could get them on the web. Now, we can get right into the site and make changes or build whole new areas all by ourselves,” said Joan Paine, director of marketing for the Infirmary. “It was very easy to learn.”
Estrada offers cross-platform accessibility and high manageability for medium- and large-scale web sites. It is designed to work with large amounts of data-providing absolute control yet great flexibility for managing Web content. With its intuitive easy-to-learn interface, Estrada enables both novice and advanced computer users to build and maintain Web sites easily and efficiently. As an open development platform, technical personnel can also tailor Estrada’s functionality to meet their company’s specific business needs.
“Estrada has allowed us to gain control of our site,” commented Eddy Stephens, Mobile Infirmary’s chief information officer. “We’re looking forward to developing new functionalities using Estrada’s technology.”
“We’re proud to work with Mobile Infirmary, using our Internet technology to bring its healthcare expertise to its patients, southern Alabama, and the world,” said Ken Wallace, vice president of Gandalf Development.
