PORT RICHEY, FL – April 8, 2016. The Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind, Inc. is pleased to present our new, accessible, intuitive, and responsive website for clients, their families, our donors, and the general public. The newly designed www.lvib.org is helping visitors using smartphones, tablets, and desktops to easily find answers to questions about Lighthouse programs and services and accessing them. Lighthouse’s CEO, Sylvia Perez, is thrilled with the site’s functionality and accessibility. She said, “As a visually impaired person using adaptive technology, I appreciate how easy it is to use our new website, and I know potential clients and clients alike will be drawn to it because it has been designed to meet their information and access needs. Ayantek has demonstrated a true commitment to developing an exceptional user experience that is meeting the needs of our visually impaired and blind clients and at the same time, is helping our organization to increase donations and support.”
The site was expertly designed and generously donated to the Lighthouse by Ayantek, LLC, located in Boston, MA. Ayantek is a digital strategy and solutions firm focused on delivering value through Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud (SMAC) technologies to some of the world’s largest organizations in manufacturing, medtech, non-profit, and education sectors. Praveen Ramanathan, President and CEO, said “Helping people in need, such as those who are visually impaired and blind, reminds us that our work serves a larger purpose—the enrichment of lives—using technology. We are thankful to Lighthouse for giving us the opportunity to be of service in achieving their mission through the redesigned, truly accessible, responsive website.” To learn how Ayantek can help your business grow and thrive online, please visit www.ayantek.com.
