Port City Web Selected to Redesign Service Credit Union Website

PORTSMOUTH, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- Port City Web, LLC (www.PortCityWeb.com), an award-winning, full service website and eCommerce design, development and online marketing company, today announced that it has been selected by Service Credit Union to redesign the Credit Union's website (www.servicecu.org).

"I'm thrilled and honored that we won this opportunity with Service Credit Union," said Erik Crago, President and CEO of Port City Web. "We submitted design comps to Service Credit Union knowing that they would decide on whether or not to select us for design work based on those designs. That put a lot of pressure on our team, including our main designer." Port City Web does not offer design concepts prior to winning a bid, but given the 5-year relationship between Port City Web and Service Credit Union, Port City Web decided to break from their policy and do the design comps in hopes of winning the contract. "This was our first time doing design comps prior to winning a bid," noted Crago. "I had all the confidence in our head designer that she could create something that would impress people at Service Credit Union, and she did."

Port City Web is also in the process of implementing Ektron's Content Management System for Service Credit Union so that less technical employees can update and manage content specifically assigned to them, and reduce the dependence on technical staff -- among other advances. Additionally, Port City Web has set up new web hosting for Service Credit Union to improve the overall performance and reliability of the credit union website. "Winning the job of designing a new website for Service Credit Union was the icing on the cake," notes Crago. "We have been re-developing their website platform from the ground up at a technical level which won't be seen by many people. Being able to put a stunning new design on top of this entire project for everyone to see really drives home how significant the relationship is between Port City Web and Service Credit Union."
