Ontario Professional Planners Institute



The Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI) is the recognized voice of the province's planning profession, representing practicing planners across the province spanning government, private industry, community agencies, and academic institutions.

As OPPI's long-term strategic technology partner, Seventyeight Digital was engaged to enhance and expand OPPI’s web presence and capabilities through the creation of a new, Content Management System driven mobile friendly website designed to act as the organizations information and communications hub and intended to deliver targeted messaging, empower users to complete key tasks, facilitate connecting with OPPI staff, and provide access to relevant public content and value added resources through an effective roles and permissions authentication structure.

Key solution outcomes include:

  • Providing OPPI’s non-technical staff with the ability to easily manage website content via easy to follow input forms and WYSIWYG editing tools.
  • Integration of social media tie-ins enabling OPPI to easily amplify messaging and speak to a broader audience.
  • Integration of a third party Association Management System (AMS) via web services to allow for data sharing and display based on role and permissions security access controls.
  • Implementation of a flexible, extensible and technically advanced technical platform that will accommodate future growth, scalability and multi-device compatibility.
  • Development of a design and layout to provide for multi-device compatibility to accommodate optimized tablet and mobile viewing.

The website was built in Kentico CMS.
