We are delighted to announce the successful launch of the new Dundee Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery web site which has yet again exceeded the client’s expectations.

Professor Rami Abboud of the department released a statement about the development and working with mtc:

The Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, based at the TORT Centre, has just launched its newly designed web site. We wanted the web site to showcase the evolving vibrant, dynamic and varied clinical and research work carried out within the department and its world renowned Institute of Motion and Research facilities. Working in conjunction with a Dundee-based company mtc., one of Scotland’s fastest growing web development companies, we have produced a design that is both stimulating but simple and also one which retains the character of the various department’s people and facilities.

The main area on the homepage is designed to be a versatile system that can accommodate both mosaics of interactive tiles (simulating force plates) and larger banner images (simulating walkways). The site houses a lot of information but the web designers worked with us to produce visually rich landing pages in sub sections. The entry page to the IMAR section in particular really stands out. As well as producing a web site that is inspiring visually, it was also essential that the department had full control and management of the web site in-house. MTC delivered this through a simple and easy to use Content Management System which gives the team at TORT full control of the web site from a content point of view. This gives us confidence in a web site that can adapt and change quickly to keep our presence visible and at the forefront of its field accurately reflecting the evolving activities at the department itself to our collaborators, past, current and prospective students.

The statement continued:

It was a joy working with the guys at mtc.. They were enthusiastic and switched on to what we were aiming to achieve with the project right from the off. Every member of the team is not only skilled in their respective positions but is very approachable and friendly making the constant need for contact an enjoyable experience and not the chore one might expect. For the few months that we worked closely with MTC they actually felt like part of our closely-knit Department and we only wish that all customer support systems were as efficient, friendly and skilled as these guys. We look forward to a continuing a strong working relationship and cannot recommend their services highly enough.

We recommend you visit the web site to find out more about this fantastic new client and see the end product delivered.
