While the previous web site was packed with information, the site model had been designed by Millennium more than 7 years ago. "With all the new technological and user-centric features used on the Web today, it was the perfect time to re-think our approach to the site design, navigation and overall usability," said David Kirschner General Manager of News 12 Interactive, "Our goal was to put the user first, and design a great interactive experience utilizing the latest advancements in Web technology." Millennium provided the strategic architecture, user Interface and implementation of the News12 blog using the WordPress blogging platform
"We were honored to be selected once again by News12 to modernize their award winning site. Since News12 offers unique, hyper local content not offered by any other news outlet, our goal was to create a simple, intuitive and individual consumer experience to access this information while providing a scalable architecture for future content inclusion," said Patrick Macri, President of Millennium Communications.
