Lakeland Hills YMCA Gains Streamlined Site Management and Improved User Experience with Just-Launched Website

New integrated platform designed and launched by online solutions provider Component Web Services streamlines and improves the user experience for staff and members of the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA.

Fairfield, NJ, December 7, 2012 — New “search by age range” functionality is just one of the new features available to Lakeland Hills Family YMCA members and guests as part of the organization’s new website recently launched by Component Web Services (CWS).

CWS worked with Lakeland Hills over the last several months to design, develop and integrate the organization’s web-based platform with the Christensen Computer Company (CCC) software used by the Y to manage program registration. 

According to CWS President & CEO Kevin B. Kimmel, the hosted solutions offered by CWS provide nonprofits with the robust technology infrastructure typically available only to larger organizations with deep financial and IT resources. Says Kimmel, “As part of our scope of work, we developed custom controls that allow Lakeland’s administrators to easily select registration programs through CCC’s interface and display available program dates and times on the web site in real-time.”

The integration of various technologies was one of the project’s unique challenges, according to Suzanne Mantuano, Information & Technology Director for Lakeland Hills — and one of the reasons she engaged CWS. “Their entire team worked to make it happen, taking into account the numerous nuances to our operation,” says Mantuano. “CWS was always available to consult with our data management vendor to understand and anticipate any potential for conflicts, and they continued with that approach even when things surfaced that weren’t anticipated.”

The result was a seamless look and feel and a more intuitive experience for the Y’s site users. “Members are now seeing a more up-to-date site because we have 24/7 access to all content. Plus, features like auto-publish/unpublish make it nice not to have to be available to touch everything in real time. We can set it and forget it.”
