Fig Leaf Launches 5 New Association Websites on Progress Sitefinity 

Posted by Bret Peters on Aug 31, 2016 9:13:58 AM

Fig Leaf is proud to announce the successful redesign, migration and launch of five new websites for the Association of Financial Professionals (AFP).  The newly rebranded and designed websites will help AFP achieve their goals of attracting financial professionals and better serving existing members by providing personalized, mobile, tablet and desktop access to AFP’s family of sites:

The Fig Leaf team worked closely with key stakeholders to create a set of responsive designs and implemented the Progress Sitefinity Content Management System (CMS) to enhance the organization’s ability to easily manage and publish content.

"The Fig Leaf creative team led AFP through agile web design and discovery sprints to custom-tailor each of the newly branded websites to fit with each website’s unique mission and identity,” states Dave Gallerizzo USMCR (Ret.), CEO of Fig Leaf Software.  “Fig Leaf's in-house .NET CMS team is well-versed in Ektron, Episerver and Sitefinity. For the AFP they implemented Progress Software’s Sitefinity CMS for all five sites, migrated the content from the Ektron CMS to the Sitefinity 9 platform, and bundled this with a tightly integrated Single Sign-On (SSO) solution tied to Abila's netFORUM Enterprise Association Management System. Launching fives sites at once is a challenging feat but the team pulled it off efficiently and in a timely fashion.”
