October 26, 2010- TORONTO, ON- Edentity Web Systems, in partnership with CTV Globemedia, are pleased to announce the re-launched, Agility-managed website for the Business News Network. The updated BNN site offers enhanced search tools, an updated user interface, more content on hosts and shows, as well as tighter integration with consistently updated market data.
Jack Fleischmann, General Manager of BNN, stated “BNN.ca is a popular financial media site, but we were having real trouble maintaining it. Our old platform was unreliable and continuously broke down. Edentity suggested that their Agility platform would allow us to rapidly update our content and we are absolutely delighted we switched. They rebuilt our website from scratch, trained our people, and delivered everything we asked for on a very tight schedule.” The previous BNN platform was not flexible enough to meet the rapidly changing needs of the site and the users that manage it. With Agility, the BNN team is able to consistently update content on the site with much less effort.
Andre Gaulin, Director of Agility Solutions was quoted as saying “We were very happy with how things turned out. We knew that the site had to perform well despite their sophisticated content requirements. BNN is a highly visited site for professionals and investors so we knew we had to deliver a premium solution. The Agility platform allowed us to do just that.”
Fleischmann added that “Edentity set the bar high in terms of its expertise and standards for performance. They’ve got a great team and we’ll continue to work with them on new projects as we grow our business. Their team followed a detailed process to get the work done and executed on time (in fact, ahead of time). The site roll-out went according to plan and the little glitches that occurred were dealt with promptly. In our opinion, Edentity provides excellent service and great value for money.”
As a whole, the creation and implementation of the BNN site was done both quickly and efficiently. The large amounts of content were integrated and handled with ease, and we are pleased with what the site offers to its readers.
