LOUISVILLE, Ky. and WASHINGTON, Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Fig Leaf Software, an award winning Washington, DC based digital agency, is proud to announce the official launch of a new public website for the Louisville Metro Government. The new website, www.louisvilleky.gov, was officially launched at a press conference in Louisville, Kentucky, on November the 25th, 2014. Presiding over the press conference was Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer:
"We live and work in an increasingly digital world and one of our top goals is to make more data and services available online," Fischer said. "We've taken an already award-winning website, made it much more robust and easier for our citizens to use while also creating a solid platform for further progress in the near future."
Louisville contracted Fig Leaf Software to implement a new mobile first design for the public website and to implement the new site using the Drupal Content Management System on the Acquia platform. In addition to theming the design in Drupal, the Fig Leaf team also helped improve the user experience and design a content strategy and migration plan.
"The new website brings together a number of best-of-breed technologies, including the Acquia Drupal platform and the Google Search Appliance, to deliver an optimal and mobile-first web experience," said Dave Gallerizzo USMCR (Ret.), CEO of Fig Leaf Software. "The city of Louisville's focus on a web-based self-service model, for both its constituents and content editors, promotes both the quick dissemination and consumption of content. In a time of increasing informational need, on the part of constituents, and increasing service expectations, on the part of local governments, their focus on this synergy is forward thinking, admirable, and worthwhile." - Dave Gallerizzo USMCR (Ret.), CEO of Fig Leaf Software.
The new city website is designed for citizen engagement and features a prominent search box powered by the Google Search Appliance. The easy to use Drupal Content Management System powered by Acquia on top of the Amazon Web Services platform ensures that non-technical content experts can quickly and easily share web content with the residents and businesses of Louisville.
