For years, PRF published detailed project compendiums—dense reference books and
CD-ROMs with limited distribution.

We aimed to engage a much larger audience of potential funders, research
institutions, and allied corporate interests. We created an engaging front-end
online user experience with Flash video, highlighted researcher stories, and
featured reports.

Incorporating a back-end database system for content updates, the scalable
website serves as a repository for hundreds of current and past reports.
Detailed user tracking helps to assess expansion of the site and its strategic
use. The result is tremendous growth in visibility and engagement with a
broader, more beneficial audience.
