StayWell Custom Communications Announces Strategic Alliance with Siteimprove

EVANSTON, Ill., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Custom health communications company StayWell Custom Communications (SCC), a division of MediMedia USA, has announced an exclusive strategic alliance with Siteimprove to provide value-added services that help health care organizations ensure the integrity, accuracy, and accessibility of their website content.

SCC has always worked with clients to ensure the highest quality standard of the health and wellness content on a client's website. Now, through this amazing set of new solutions, SCC is able to offer clients tools that improve the quality of its entire site along with other client-managed and third-party content. All of this adds greatly to the end user's experience and impression while providing an improved consumer experience.

Teaming with Siteimprove will provide StayWell Custom clients a suite of website management and maintenance tools which include:

  • SiteCheck- The SiteCheck service will automatically check an entire website for errors such as misspellings, broken links, and accessibility issues on a continual basis. It provides clear indications of why and where issues occur, quick links to enable prompt fixes, and can be configured to alert multiple editors when problems are located. A new Search Engine Optimization module will also help website owners maintain good positions in search engines, such as Google.
  • SearchImprove - Easily set up and manage a site's search engine with the SearchImprove tool. It makes the search function on a website straightforward and powerful, by providing tools for transparency and adjustment. SearchImprove search function allows the webmaster to influence and control search results, optimizing the communication potential of user searches.
  • SiteAlarm - SiteAlarm monitors website uptime and alerts the website contact and web team by email when something is not working properly. Regardless of the monitoring frequency used, once an error is detected on a website, SiteAlarm will check the website every minute until the website is back up again. Monitoring a web server with SiteAlarm will help improve the performance and availability of a website.
  • SiteAnalyze - SiteAnalyze is a unique hosted website analysis service that provides detailed website analysis and statistics, including visitor demographics, website traffic patterns, search engine effectiveness, and many other website metrics.

"We're always looking for ways to provide our clients with ways to enhance the quality of their online content and technology. Our exclusive strategic alliance with Siteimprove is just one more way we're elevating our online suite of services and continues to position us as the custom communications company with the most robust interactive offerings," said StayWell Custom Communications president and CEO Trent Sterling.

When features on a website fail to work properly, it can cost a hospital or health plan a significant amount of money, and be a significant drain on internal resources. These new services meet the highest standards for quality and accessibility and can keep tabs on site traffic and performance. They also combat any loss in credibility by the health care organization when there are misspellings, broken links, and accessibility issues found on its website.

"Health care organizations have a serious need to manage and improve the quality, accuracy, functionality, and accessibility of their content. Most importantly, they have a higher duty to insure accessibility to all they serve, including those with disabilities that would otherwise prevent them from having access to useful healthcare information on their websites. This new offering addresses a real need in this market," said Dave Bennett, Senior Vice President of Interactive Solutions for StayWell Custom Communications. "We are extremely excited about working with Siteimprove to offer this unique service to the health care market."

SCC will be working directly with its clients as well as through its associated Content Management System (CMS) strategic alliances and partners to make this new service available.

"Siteimprove chose to align itself with StayWell Custom Communications because the company is the clear market leader in health content and online solutions and we're thrilled to be able to support their strong interactive solutions," said Morten Ebbesen, president and CEO of Siteimprove.
