Lyon Software, based in Toledo, OH, is the maker of CBISA Online, a comprehensive software program that aids hospitals and long term care facilities in community benefit reporting and planning. As part of a cohesive brand update executed by Viridian Creative's Jean Green, Magnate Interactive was commissioned to extend this bright new vision to the Lyon Software corporate website.
Using a combination of leading-edge software packages and low-cost open-source solutions, coupled with Magnate's expertise in site design and development, the bulk of the redesign was complete within six weeks. The same software used to code the site, Adobe Dreamweaver CS3, is also used by in-house staff at Lyon Software to make site updates - and because of a clean separation between the text content of the site and its CSS-based presentation, staff can focus on writing content for users rather than code for web browsers.
