Client Success: City of Suffolk

The City of Suffolk executed a competitive RFP process when searching for a solution to how to manage the ever changing content on their website.   Marathon was selected through this process and engaged with the City of Suffolk to consult on the best solution for their website design and development needs.  It was very important to the city that they were provided with a user friendly system that would allow over 40 city departments, the opportunity to easily change content on their website.  Marathon implemented a Content Management System (CMS), and trained all of the necessary employees so they would no longer be dependent on their internal IT department for managing their updates.  This allows the city to save money on their frequent content updates and focus on new website initiatives.
