Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS)
Posted: Fri, 29 Jun 2012 15:00
This is the second site Cuttlefish have built for our County Sports Partnership, Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS), and it's been another one we've had a lot of fun working on! Built using our cPortals Content Management System (CMS) the site incorporates lots of funky features with a bright and bold design and really showcases the great work LRS carry out, as well as being the number one resource for all things sport, no matter how much or little you participate!
Having seen our work for Inspire LeicesterShire and Sports Think Tank, LRS initially came to Cuttlefish in November 2011 in search of a replacement site for their Active Together Workplace Challenge. We happily obliged and in January 2012 the site was launched. Following this, LRS's attention turned to their flagship site - Cuttlefish were again commissioned to build a replacement.
LRS's requirements were not only that the site should have a fresh new look but crucially that the Content Management System should be powerful yet extremely easy to use. We worked very closely with LRS to define and refine their requirements and, using the wide variety of simple-to-use features which come as standard in our cPortals CMS (many of which were not present in their previous solution), we've been able to build a website tailored exactly to their way of working which looks great too! There's been nothing but positive feedback so far and we're really proud of what we've achieved with LRS both on lrsport.org and workplacechallenge.org.uk. There's also plenty more to come so if you're in Leicestershire and into (or want to get into) sport you should definitely check out the site and sign up for their newsletter!
