The Peoria Rivermen hockey team prepares players for the next and final step in their professional career for the St. Louis Blues NHL hockey team. This means the Rivermen demand the highest level of performance. This is true not only of their players, but of every detail of the organization, including the website. We built the new rivermen.net website to the exact specifications of the team's Director of Communications, Brendan Burke, and Chief Operating Officer, Jason Penning. Cybernautic worked meticulously with the front-office staff to make sure the new website performed to their exact specifications. In addition, we've introduced the new Peoria Rivermen website to Cybernautic Cloud Hosting which allows the site to load more content to more users, faster than ever before. This is just another way that Cybernautic delivers commanding performance to all of our clients, big or small. "We are so proud of the product that we have put together for our fans with this new web site" Rivermen COO, Jason Penning said about the launch of the new site.
The Peoria Rivermen website is updated multiple times daily. This means the communications staff needed an easy to manage Content Management System that allows them to manage EVERY bit of content on every page including the background image, podcasts, videos, game recaps, tickets, team apparel sales, social media, and even the creation of new promo pages. All of these features are baked into the Content Management System which the Peoria Rivermen use to keep their fans up to date.
Rather than explain the intuitive design of the site, we'll let the Peoria Rivermen explain it in their own words in an excerpt from the official press release: "More than just a tweak of the home page, every element of the new site has been redesigned from its previous version. All-new ticket pages and promotional calendars make it very easy to find all the information for the upcoming games. A video player has been added to the home page to allow fans to watch highlights with one click of the mouse. Desktop wallpapers are available to download and photos from each home game, as well as the team’s visits throughout the community, are cataloged on the new site. The completely revamped site features a fresh look, new features, an easy-to-navigate design, and a full integration of both Facebook and Twitter." Peoria Rivermen COO, Jason Penning said "The team at Cybernautic have put in countless hours to make this site fun and informative and an overall great experience for anyone who visits."
With the explosion of social media, the new site allows fans to post news and information to their Facebook or Twitter accounts without leaving the page they’re on. The Peoria Rivermen have also increased the presence of their community involvement on the new website with an event calendar, as well as information on the educational programs that they are involved in...all feeding the public's desire for more social features.
