"We had a great experience building our new site with T-sign's enterprise CMS solution," Joshua Tremblay, Manager Operations & Optimization explains. "Despite our short project schedule, the T-sign team created multiple flexible templates that made updating content easy for both new and experienced users."

For its new social action website the media enterprise which was founded in 2004 by Jeff Skoll, opted for T-sign Studios as their lead agency. The new online offer introduces the company Participant Media and its productions to the website’s visitors in a motivating way and aims at inspiring them to actively participate in making a positive social change in the world. Thus, in addition to every presented film, five tangible tips are given pointing to what each and every one of us can directly do to alleviate the problems that constitute the subject matter of the particular title. Through the new social action website visitors can access international relief organizations such as Amnesty International, the Gates Foundation and many more, which have been integrated into the online offer according to their specific context. For each issue the user can choose from a variety of possibilities and materials to actively take part in official programs and actions of the relief organizations.

The decision for the underlying content management technology was made in favor of our enterprise CMS solution after a three-stage selection process due to its easy to learn and easy to use interface, as well as its scalability and competitive price.
