We build or maintain a wide range of websites and online services. Here are just a few examples of our work.
We worked with the Lab’s Safety professionals and Internal Communications group to create the online component of a multi-media awareness campaign promoting the power of employee safety suggestions. This website combines a catalog of employee video testimonials with annotated still photography to show how everyone at the Lab has the ability to make a positive change.
We were approached by the Collider-Accelerator Department to produce a website to showcase the Laboratory’s full complement of accelerator facilities, resources and expertise, highlighting the role that accelerator technology plays in furthering the scientific objectives of the U.S. Department of Energy. We worked with C-AD personnel to develop a content strategy and craft a solution which explains Brookhaven’s unique qualifications in this field.
A core part of our service is the development of conference and workshop registration websites. We can guide you through the process of clearly communicating the details of your event with your attendees and we provide you with a secure method of collecting registrant data and credit card payment information. All of our registration sites are fully compatible with use on mobile devices.
We worked with the Lab’s environmental professionals and the Internal Communications group to produce a website highlighting the ways in which the Laboratory celebrates Earth Day. The site includes suggestions that all employees can use to personally support sustainability and make a difference. This site also serves as the main tool for communicating the calendar of Lab-wide Earth Day events.
In addition to building communications-oriented websites, Web Services also builds dynamic applications that serve the entire Laboratory. The staff directory is an example of the type of sophisticated interface that we can build to access centralized data. This project highlights the kind of user experience (UX) expertise we can bring to bear on simplifying data access. It includes features such as predictive results and text auto-completion as well as multiple methods of displaying the results based on user preference.
We worked with the Chair of the Physics Department and the Media & Communications group to produce this overhauled website showcasing one of the Laboratory’ most important facilities: the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. This project involved a top-to-bottom review of content explaining RHIC’s mission, capabilities and achievements. The site was redesigned to take advantage of many dynamic elements including newsfeeds and a self-updating video library.
Recognizing that Laboratory staff could do a better job of controlling their on-site driving behaviors, we were requested to support the development of a website which would showcase safe driving tips as well as information about where traffic violations were most prominent. We designed a site incorporating a photo carousel, maps, a video library and an invitation to schedule time on the Lab’s driving simulator.
This is an example of a redesign effort requested by a key Laboratory support organization whose previous website had grown overly complex and unmanageable. This is a common problem for websites of this type and required a thorough review and reorganization of the site’s content. We worked with safety professionals to cull through vast quantities of documentation, determine what information was most important to staff, and position it to be clear and easily locatable.
This site was designed to communicate not only the quality of the Laboratory’s potable water supply but also the process by which it is conditioned and delivered. It covers background information on the aquifer system over which the Lab is situated, a photo catalog of the steps in the treatment process and annual data reported to the EPA (known as the Consumer Confidence Report) that documents our water quality.
The Safety resources website was developed to address several important problems, including the fact that Lab had too many avenues by which employees could report safety concerns and that there was no single location where they could go to look up timely safety information. The Safety website was built to collect important safety information into a single location, providing a “one-stop shop,” eliminating the confusion that had previously existed.
We build online surveys to suit your needs. Using an enterprise web survey product called NoviSurvey, we can create sophisticated online surveys and data collection forms that allow for conditional logic, customizable look and feel, robust user security management, advanced survey reporting, and an easy to use respondent survey portal.
We build custom subscription-based email newsletters. In this example, we were asked by the management of the Center for Functional Nanomaterials to develop an HTML-based newsletter that facility users and others could subscribe to in order to maintain contact with the Center. This product runs on a customized content management system developed by Web Services.
