Mercy by the Sea is a spiritual retreat and conference center offering programs that give participants the opportunity to slow down and reconnect with a deeper reality in a welcoming environment of simplicity, beauty, and peace.
The center, which is set on 33 acres along the Long Island Sound shoreline, has meeting rooms and overnight accommodations for hosted groups and retreat participants, plus dining services specializing in healthy, nutritious meals.
Mercy by the Sea was looking for an upgraded website offering easy navigation, a look and feel that reflected its welcoming atmosphere and tranquil setting, more information on its programs and retreats, and the ability to view and register for its day and weekend programs.
"An update of the Mercy by the Sea website was long overdue," said Anne Simpkinson, Mercy by the Sea's Director of Communications. "Data showed that our audience was becoming more digitally adept and that a responsive site was a must. We also wanted to make it easier for potential and returning program participants to navigate the site and register for upcoming programs. The new site achieves both those goals."
Web Solutions created a new site in its proprietary Content Management System v4, and a complementary site on the Web Solutions Enrichment platform with full program offerings management and registration.
"The design of the site, especially the homepage, is getting a lot of positive feedback," said Simpkinson. "Web Solutions did an exceptional job listening to staff's needs and wants, with the result that the site truly reflects the values, tone and spirit of Mercy by the Sea."
