Children's Hospital Colorado Launches New Website on iAPPS Product Suite

Burlington, MA | May 21, 2012

Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLIN), developer of the award-winning iAPPS Web Engagement Management platform and interactive technology solutions, today announced the recent launch of a new, comprehensive and redesigned website for the Orthopedics Institute at Children’s Hospital Colorado. The new site showcases the hospital’s top-ranked care in treating musculoskeletal conditions from head to toe, with design that is bright, youthful and focused on movement. The website also successfully highlights the Orthopedic Institute’s integrated programs including orthopedics, orthopedic surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation medicine, while providing condition, test and treatment information for patients and families.

Children’s Hospital Colorado leveraged Bridgeline's iAPPS Product Suite - the industry’s leading Web Engagement Management (WEM) solution and only WEM platform available in either a SaaS or perpetual license that unifies Content Management, eCommerce, eMarketing, and web Analytics capabilities - enabling users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web properties. The capabilities built into the iAPPS Product Suite enable marketers to develop and manage more effective site and email marketing content, and quickly adjust that content to the changing needs of their site visitors and overall market, including the delivery of real-time, dynamic content based on visitor actions and profile. With iAPPS’ single, unified platform, driving more effective, measurable campaigns gives marketers a distinct edge that can propel optimization of their online marketing channels.

“We are pleased with the strategic vision and design approach provided by Bridgeline Digital on this project.,” said Robin Doerr, executive director of marketing and communications at Children’s Colorado. “Based on our goals, Bridgeline developed the concept, design and architecture for a website that captures the essence of our Orthopedics Institute. From conception to execution, Bridgeline helped us launch an interactive website that showcases our top-ranked care for bones, muscles, movement and more.”

With a clean, inviting design and the ability to navigate by multiple classifications such as a child’s age, body area, condition or sports injury, Bridgeline created a user-friendly experience that positions Children’s Colorado as a leading resource for pediatric orthopedic information and care. Additionally, by powering the site with the market-leading and distinctive ease-of-use built into iAPPS Content Manager, the staff at Children’s Colorado is also easily able to modify, add and delete content on the site. And by utilizing iAPPS SaaS licensing, they can be particularly independent of highly specialized IT assistance – which allows for convenient and timely content management going forward.
