Virginia Business Goes Global with New Portal Site

The Challenge

The VEDP sought to create an online portal where Virginia defense companies could obtain the resources needed for optimal growth, as well as network with other GGDI members and partners.  After the successful launch of the VEDP Defense Directory, BlueSkyPhoenix, teaming with Perigee Labs, was chosen to create this new solution.  

The Solution

The portal provides a fully searchable resource library, as well as a membership area, where personalized information pertinent to member interests is displayed.  Logged in members also receive access to company contact information, encouraging direct engagement and possible collaboration.  A member forum is another important networking touchpoint for companies as well.  Now nearing completion, the site has been moved from development to the live environment, where the VEDP staff has been adding valuable and relevant content.  BlueSkyPhoenix and Perigee Labs are very excited to unveil this new site and anticipate it will be very useful in meeting the needs of Virginia based defense contractors as they look toward new horizons. See the site at http://resources.exportvirginia.org.

BlueSkyPhoenix was able to take our ideas and transform them into fully functional, well-designed websites that exceeded our expectations. With regular status updates and discussions, we were well-informed and had many opportunities for input throughout the design and development process. BlueSkyPhoenix delivered top-notch websites that are interactive, easy to maintain, and help us serve our clients.
