Heartspring launches new user-friendly website
WICHITA, Kan. – Heartspring introduced a complete redesign of its website, www.heartspring.org, to provide an environment that is functional, attractive and user-friendly.
“The website focuses on dramatically improved navigation through the development of mini-sites for all of its major programs, improved functionality and a 100-percent responsive design to better translate through all user screen sizes, and on mobile and tablet technologies,” Heartspring Director of Web and Mobile Apps, David Harder, said.
Heartspring’s website was developed entirely in-house, utilizing the latest in web design technologies. It debuts new features to help enhance the user experience, which include the following:
- A new home page featuring a HTML5 video background that visually demonstrates Heartspring’s programs in a 25-second reel
- Simplified navigation through the use of individualized sections for each of Heartspring’s major programs
- Online applications and request forms
“We started this project with one goal in mind—to make it as easy as possible for parents, professionals—anyone in need of our services—to access information quickly and efficiently,” Heartspring Director of Marketing, Dusty Buell, said. “Whether they want to directly contact a specific department about therapies, request an appointment, or fill out new patient paperwork online, they now have that option. That wasn’t available to our visitors before.”
Heartspring is a worldwide center for children with special needs with a wide array of services, including a therapeutic residential and day school, pediatric services, autism outreach and international programs.
“Streamlining the navigation and functionality of the site was imperative to helping our primary audience of advocates for individuals with special needs learn more about Heartspring and what we can do here,” Buell said. “Getting that information can be that first life-changing step for those individuals to begin the path toward greater independence.”
