Westborough, Mass. – December 10, 2010 – Wakefly, an innovative, award-winning web development and online marketing firm, announced that it has won the 2010 Kentico Site of the Year Award for the Best Healthcare Website for the design and development of the new website for Heska (www.heska.com), besting competitors from all over the globe.
An international contest, Kentico Software seeks out the best Kentico CMS website implementations, recognizing talented individual and team efforts in website development. Partners and customers were invited to submit their nominations of websites built with Kentico CMS that have gained outstanding Web presence.

Heska wanted to develop a new website to extend its brand to prospects, customers, investors, career seekers, and other interested parties in an intelligent, attractive, and engaging way. In addition, Heska planned to make frequent updates to the site, so it required a content management system (CMS) to ensure content is fresh, current and easy to update.
“We’re proud to win this prestigious award”, said Dean Dorazio, CEO of Wakefly. “The Wakefly and Heska team did a great job in producing a website that addressed Heska’s main goals, which were to promote its product lines and to present its brand in a warm, caring way. Plus, the combination of the site’s and the functionality we built, lendsitself naturally to lead generation. This is important because we always strive to deliver a positive ROI for our clients.”
