Achieving Digital Excellence with the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC)

Furthermore, the Committee faced hurdles in integrating their content with social media and video platforms and streamlining their online donation process.

The CPC aimed to not only revamp their digital assets but also establish a lasting relationship with a tech partner who could understand their unique requirements and challenges. Their key goals included building a scalable and responsive website compliant with the highest accessibility standards, ensuring ease of content publishing, and the ability to integrate seamlessly with social media platforms, including video and other tools.
