FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
iFactory and Eastern Virginia Medical School Team Up
BOSTON—March 23, 2011—iFactory, an award-winning interactive design and development firm, is thrilled to announce its new partnership with Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), a world-class center of education, research and patient-care.
Eastern Virginia Medical School seeks to redesign the school's public website and provide a more refined web presence for its various constituents. As the primary academic-medical facility in its area, it is crucial that the medical school's website serves the needs of both the medical academic community and the regional general public.
"Depth of experience and a time-tested process for discovery, planning and implementation set iFactory's proposal far apart from others submitted for our review," said Vincent Rhodes, Director of Marketing and Communications for EVMS. "We're excited about this new partnership and look forward to working with iFactory on an innovative and efficient solution for our web needs."
Simple, intuitive navigation along with robust features and a compelling visual design are just a few of iFactory's many goals for this project. Easier, more accessible health care information will help members of the EVMS community lead fuller, healthier lives.
"We are excited about our new collaboration with EVMS and are looking forward to producing a world-class website for such an innovative and leading-edge institution," said Alen Yen, President/Creative Director at iFactory. "Partnering with EVMS is a natural evolution of our continued focus in both the higher education and health care/life science verticals."
