     Allen & Gerritsen and Bright Horizons Collaboration Wins Sitecore Site of the Year Award

    Customer experience management platform selects Bright Horizons website as one of year’s best

    April 28, 2014 – Today, Allen & Gerritsen announced that the Bright Horizons Family Solutions website, built in collaboration with the leading provider of early education, has won a Site of the Year 2013 Award from customer experience management platform Sitecore.

    This annual distinction recognizes Sitecore customers who have developed the most outstanding websites using the software. The Sitecore solution allowed Allen & Gerritsen to build a platform that initiates a dialogue spanning multiple channels with customers, in part by integrating social media tools to connect with visitors at each stage of their decision-making process. The site provides dynamic multimedia content to support browsing on mobile devices and delivers a flexible solution to convert prospects into customers. The agency even put the control in the hands of over 600 centers to use Sitecore to manage their individual websites, allowing individual Bright Horizons locations to update content in real time.

    “Allen & Gerritsen has been a fantastic partner in building this site,” said Bill Kerrigan, VP, Digital Media at Bright Horizons. “The team really knew how to bring the essence of Bright Horizons to life while creating an experience that customers both current and prospective will find engaging and informative. We couldn’t be happier with the result, and it’s made all the more exciting with the Sitecore award win.”

    The Sitecore implementation continues to be a success story for Bright Horizons. To date, the new platform has increased site visits, inquiries, and average time spent on the site.

    “Working with Bright Horizons to build this site was a fantastic project from start to finish,” said Kevin Olivieri, SVP, Chief Technology Officer at Allen & Gerritsen. “Together we created a platform that is not only an incredible resource for parents, but an invaluable tool for all Bright Horizons centers as well. We’re thrilled and honored that Sitecore has recognized this project as one of the year’s best.”
