Challenge

Design and develop a news portal for the University of Washington Health Sciences editorial team to consolidate all reporting on UW related health news.

Solution

After researching private sector news portals and leading collaborative work sessions with multiple organizations, Parallel delivered a new brand and a responsive Drupal 7 site featuring membership management, embargoed access for credentialed journalists, content recommendations and click tracking, emergency alerts systems, and custom RSS feeds.

Result

NewBeat has served over 400K pageviews since launch and has become an important news resource for national press organizations and the public.

After more than a year of operation, I just want to say again how much I appreciate the design and technical underpinnings of the site that you developed. You put in a lot of hard work, complex knowledge and outstanding expertise to make it easy for us to use.
