As the guardian and steward of Toronto’s waterfront resources, the Toronto Port Authority operates the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, the Port of Toronto and the Outer Harbour Marina, and works closely with the broader harbour community to ensure these assets will provide prosperity and enjoyment for future generations.

Seventyeight was engaged by the Toronto Port Authority to design and develop their new website – transitioning TPA off of their legacy Ektron CMS. This included an upgraded dynamic look and feel, enhanced content management capabilities, integration with business systems and delivery of key services.

The new website integrates with TPA’s legacy systems, supports enterprise functionality, and provides for feature integration of community building features such as online event calendars, forums, blogs and other social media applications.

The site is architected to support multi-lingual and mobile specific content delivery and functionality intended for launch in future phases.

Key outcomes include:

  • Construction of a technical foundation capable of fully supporting enterprise functionality and ensuring a cost effective approach for future extensibility.
  • Integration with operational systems:
    • Toronto Harbour Terminal System
    • Noise complaint management system
    • Landing fee payment system
    • Vessel operators permit registration and payment system
  • Data migration - from legacy Ektron CMS to enterprise Kentico CMS.
  • Development of a design and site structure that would create both a centralized brand and information umbrella as well as provide individual business units with their own identity in line with their user demographics (i.e. port operations, marina, airport, corporate office).
  • Multiple stakeholder consultation and coordination.
  • Development of role-based administration permissions and workflows based on business unit and staff position responsibilities.
The website was built in Kentico CMS. Click the link for a detailed case study: Toronto Port Authority Kentico CMS case study
