Fort Wayne, IN (Vocus) April 27, 2009
The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership (NEIRP) has launched its newly improved and updated economic development website. The redesigned website features easier navigation and more information about northeast Indiana business and quality of life. The reorganization of the website allows for frequent updates, establishing a prime source for relevant regional information.
The most important change is the establishment of a data-rich web portal that offers more areas of information and more in-depth data reports that were previously available only in print.
“Over the past year, we have seen how our site needs to function, not only for site selectors and prospect companies but also for the Partnership and the northeast Indiana region,” said Erica McCutchan, the Partnership’s marketing manager. “The changes we made were in response to a perceived need for richer, up-to-date data and a more in-depth look at our region and its assets.”
The following is a list of important additions to the northeast Indiana website.
•Northeast Indiana county PDF profiles with demographic data including maps and charts
•County specific photo libraries
•NEIRP annual reports, Regional brochures, sales sheets and other marketing collateral developed by the NEIRP Marketing Team
•Presentations by site selection experts and community partners
•Target Industry and Cluster Studies
•Archived PDF e-newsletters and news releases
•Accurate and timely updates of regional information
•New maps creating a more visual image of important regional data
•New regional quality of life highlight section
•List of existing businesses by county and industry
•Commercial real estate information
•Yearly regional new investment reports
•Compilation of national accolades pertaining to the state of Indiana and the northeast Indiana region
This dynamic website was successfully launched through cooperation between NEIRP and several local partners that deserve recognition for their exemplary work. One Lucky Guitar, Inc. designed an exceptional look and feel that enhances every visitor’s experience on the website and e-business consulting firm Cirrus ABS handled the development of the site. Community Research Institute (CRI) contributed vast amounts of new and updated regional information in addition to the quality of life information compiled with assistance from the Northeast Indiana Corporate Council.
