The Bar Association of Erie County, a non-profit professional association with over 3,700 judge and attorney members in the Western New York area, has chosen Algonquin Studios and its web content management system, QuantumCMS, for the design, development, and hosting of the Association’s web site.
When searching for a new technology vendor, the Bar Association of Erie County had several goals in mind for their new site. They wanted a fresh look and feel, reflecting their modern organization that still allowed them to integrate with their current vendors. The Association also liked the idea of working with a Buffalo-based company like Algonquin Studios with extensive experience in the legal industry.
The project, which took less than a month to complete, was led by Algonquin Studios Web Developer, Michael Belfatto, who wanted to make sure that he designed a responsive web site that worked efficiently on all mobile platforms all while meeting their specifications.
"Working with the Bar Association of Erie County was such a pleasure. Their goal was to develop a warm site that was welcoming to their target audience of legal professionals and attorneys while maintaining a professional look and feel,” says Mr. Belfatto. “They also needed to ensure their members could continue to access and register for Continuing Legal Education courses, so we assisted them in selecting and moving to a new event registration platform."
