DBED unveils redesigned Web site

April 30, 2006

The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) has unveiled the redesign of its Web site, ChooseMaryland.

The interactive site, at www.choosemaryland.org, has been redesigned to be more user friendly, more functional, to offer a host of expanded capabilities and to serve as a local, regional and national business resource.

"This newly designed site places DBED at the forefront of economic development agencies in the use of technology," said DBED Secretary Aris Melissaratos. "The new Web site establishes a portal to state economic development resources and acts as a leader and advocate for the effective use of technology in support of the state's businesses. The development of the site's new features increases efficiencies for both the state and our constituents."

In recent years, DBED's Web sites have provided a range of information about Maryland - from the state's business climate and tax structure to its quality of life.

The aim of the sites was to provide valuable tools for businesses to learn more about Maryland as a business location.

Because it combines traditional business development data with information about Maryland tourism, culture and quality of life, the 733-page new Choose Maryland also helps promote all of the state's assets

"The goal of our new Choose Maryland Web site is to put the most comprehensive set of development information right at our customers' fingertips," said Melissaratos.

The new site uses enterprise Web management software developed by Percussion Inc., with headquarters in Woburn, Mass. The Rhythmyx-based content management system allows the department to make changes to the content and navigation of the Web site quickly and efficiently.
