ARCS Chooses West Monroe to Develop New Website

West Monroe Partners, a management consulting firm, today announced that it has partnered with Promet Solutions to implement a new website and member/donor/scholar database for Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS®) Foundation, Inc. The organizations also will develop a new governance and support model for managing, maintaining, and developing the ARCS® Foundation website’s capabilities. ARCS® Foundation is a nation-wide organization that advances science and technology in the United States by providing financial awards to academically outstanding U.S. students in the fields of science, engineering and medical research.

ARCS® Foundation chose West Monroe and Promet Solutions because of their multi-disciplinary experience as well as their capabilities for helping the organization transform the way it communicates with constituents and manages its organizational assets. West Monroe and Promet will implement the Drupal and CiviCRM open source platforms to support the new website and database.

“We are proud to partner with an organization of the caliber of ARCS®,” said David Tilson, senior manager at West Monroe and a leader in the firm’s Customer Experience practice. “Our shared values and visions for the future enabled us to collaborate effectively with ARCS® national organization volunteers and chapters around the country to develop a web design that embodies creativity, member inclusion, and flexibility. We are excited to work with this team of talented, focused, and motivated people.”

“ARCS® Foundation is extremely excited about our long-term relationship established with West Monroe, and we are confident that the launch of this project will propel our growth and bring enormous benefits to the National organization, all of our 17 Chapters, and our ARCS® Scholars across the country,” said Mary Snitch, National President of ARCS® Foundation. “This new website is the largest project ever endeavored by ARCS® Foundation in our 53-year history – the time has come and we are ready! This award to West Monroe was made possible through our Lockheed Martin Corporate partnership and donations by ARCS® Foundation members.”

“Promet Solutions could not be more thrilled about the partnership with West Monroe to design and build the ARCS Foundation website using open source tools such as the Drupal CMS and CiviCRM. We believe this effort will create state of the art online presence and enable the ARCS foundation to better communicate with its constituents.” Says Andy Kucharski, President of Promet Solutions

The ARCS® Foundation expects to launch its new site by September 1, 2011.
