Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO)
BIO is the world’s largest biotechnology organization, providing advocacy, business development and communications services for more than 1,100 members worldwide. BIO members are involved in the research and development of innovative healthcare, agricultural, industrial and environmental biotechnology products. Corporate members range from entrepreneurial companies developing a first product to Fortune 500 multinationals. BIO also represents state and regional biotech associations, service providers to the industry and academic centers. The mission of BIO is to be the champion of biotechnology and the advocate for its member organizations—both large and small.
BIO required a firm with extensive experience with the Ektron CMS to assist them with their existing Ektron implementation on many of their web properties. They also needed a vendor who was able to work with their association management system (AMS), Personify.
Through Webmaster Services, Hodgson manages and assists with enhancements to all web properties for BIO, including convention sites for BIO India and BIO China. The organization purchased an enterprise level Ektron license and manages both public domain and internal operations websites through it.
In addition to ongoing maintenance, Hodgson has built custom applications for BIO’s convention website (convention.bio.org), has redesigned the convention site, and has overseen all web-related activities for the convention itself.
Hodgson provides ongoing support to BIO with the following resources: PM, Designers, Developers, and DBAs
