The American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) operates Lab Tests Online (LTO), which is designed to help patients and caregivers understand the many lab tests that are a vital part of medical care. Prior to engaging Unleashed Technologies, the LTO websites had content and user interface (UI) elements that had been translated into 14 different languages and used 3 different CMS platforms. The visual design, content structure, translation interface, SEO tools, and overall content management for these sites became dated. AACC sought a web development partner to refresh these aspects.
Unleashed Technologies was selected by AACC to create a new set of Drupal 8 websites to support the target countries, languages, and features required in their initial RFP.
Unleashed Technologies re-launched nine global websites for Lab Tests Online (US, Brazil, China, Korea, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Turkey, and United Kingdom)—built on the Drupal 8 platform and featuring multi-lingual capabilities.
This granted Lab Tests Online increased scalability and access to the collected knowledge base of the Drupal community.
Migration to Drupal 8 CMS: Content was migrated from legacy platforms—Silverstripe, a PHP/MySQL CMS, and Engitel, a .NET/MSSQL CMS—over to the Drupal 8 CMS.
Improved User Experience: Unleashed Technologies was able to identify that page layouts, navigation, and site search could be altered for the new website, which can allow users to quickly find content and have a more pleasing experience.
Responsive Design: The upgraded LTO website design is fully responsive, regardless of device type. Visitors are ensured to have a seamless digital experience that is usable on mobile, tablet, and full desktop screen sizes.
Search Integration: Unleashed Technologies utilized Drupal’s Search API—along with Apache Solr (a search index application) and Apache Tika (a document parser and indexer)—to provide a highly performant search interface for each LTO website.
The new sites feature an enhanced user experience and an easy-to-use interface, allowing visitors to effortlessly find exactly what they need, when they need it. Additional features and functionality continue to be implemented for each website via AACC’s ongoing Growth Package with Unleashed Technologies.
