PMC website was created around 10 years ago and a few minor design revisions were implemented in later years. PMC is again in the process of upgrading its website to give a fantastic experience to its clients and stakeholders. The upgraded website will help PMC in addressing emerging needs of virtual services during COVID 19 pandemic and hybrid service delivery model in the post pandemic environment. Revamping will ensure that our website remains relevant and provide a top notch experience for our users. This will also make sure that clients have all the information they need at their fingertips. Our website also needs an upgrading of its contents in order to generate significant and up-to-date and improved search engine ranking results.
Focusing on website accessibility is very important. Our revised website features will take into account the fact that many people use mobile devices or screens of different sizes. It will allow PMC website loading improperly, especially on mobile devices.
Since March 2020, PMC has been offering its services virtually and has noticed the vital need to enhance its website in order to better accomplish its mission and vision through raising awareness on its services and programs.
