Waltham, MA, United States, 2007/11/13 - Blue Robin continues its policy of giving back to the communities it serves, by donating $10,000 toward the design and development of an eBusiness Infrastructure for the Wellesley Library.
The goal of the project is to design, develop, and implement an eBusiness Infrastructure for the Library, utilizing the latest Internet technology that will be seamlessly integrated with the Library’s website. The objective is to build a system that provides a predictable, scalable, profitable, and secure platform for conducting e-Business. The Library intends to upgrade and establish a stronger Internet presence, as well as automating internal business processes utilizing the web.
Wellesley Free Library aims to build an online portal that can meet web visitors’ expectations, and scale to meet the varying demands of all its constituencies. The objective is to build an on-demand, eBusiness infrastructure that enables the library to have an optimized online community.
The main components of the project include:
• Building an Internet-centric Library Portal Management System to include the following:
• A platform using MS-SQL and .NET2
• Easy to use content editor ("WYSIWYG" type)
• eNewsletter Management System
• eMail List Management and Broadcast System
• Room Reservation engine
• Donation/ Philanthropy engine
• Scheduling System Roles based Authentication System
• Dynamic Site Map
• Many more customizable features
“The Library wants to establish an online system to better serve its audience by presenting up-to-date content. Blue Robin’s generous donation will allow us to use the money we are saving on this project to expand the Library’s programs and services, which is the main function of our Library. Blue Robin has developed an excellent architecture for the infrastructure of our web portal. All of the Library’s staff are looking forward with anticipation to our new website infrastructure. Without the largess of Blue Robin, we would have to delay this important project by many months,” states Ms. Helen Charbonneau, Assistant Director of Technology at the Wellesley Free Library.
“We want to make a difference in the world, and we have always believed in the importance of giving back to the communities we serve -- it gives us pride that we are helping.” elaborates Hadi Shavarini, CEO of Blue Robin. “The new Web infrastructure creates an online portal for the Library that can meet all its Web visitors’ expectations, meet the demands of all the library’s content editors, and reduces operating costs”.
