LONDON - 21 March 2017 — Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced that it has been selected by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), a world-leading centre for health research and postgraduate education, to transform the school’s website from the ground up.
The project, which is now underway, will radically overhaul the school’s digital capabilities in order to attract and engage with a larger pool of prospective students, investors, staff and alumni. To deliver on these aims, Acquia is working with school staff to develop a new website that will enhance the user journey, optimise the digital experience on mobile devices and improve the CMS usability for the school.
Acquia was selected by LSHTM through the government’s procurement platform G-Cloud to deliver the new services. As part of the process, Acquia also helped the school select a new design partner, Domain7, from a strong shortlist.
Jon Faulkner, Chief Information Officer, LSHTM said “Having a modern, vibrant website is key to our digital strategy, and it was clear that our old website was fast becoming unfit for purpose and holding us back from fulfilling our true potential.
