Michigan Self-Insurer’s Association | Lansing, Michigan
Our client association’s [MSIA] website was outdated and did not meet members’ needs. AKEA guided us through a refresh planning and execution process, and provides ongoing support so that we don’t have to worry about an outdated website ever again.

WordPress Design & Consulting for a Michigan Association
MSIA, the Michigan Self-Insurer’s Association, was founded in 1951. At that time, many Michigan businesses identified a need to advise, educate, and provide a forum for workers’ compensation issues for the business community.
AKEA has been working with MSIA since 2016. Initially, there was a need for technical support and leadership in stabilizing their existing WordPress website as well as make specific changes to content, layout and page structure.
The first efforts were a success and that led to realizing there was a true need to migrate the website to a solid website hosting service. Additionally, AKEA performed what we call a WordPress Website Conversion and AKEA redesigned the website on the WordPress content management system.
Through the Website Conversion, MSIA is now positioned to easily manage their own website with ease. The elegant visual editor, complete with drag-and-drop functions and styling capabilities, makes upkeep on the website and uploading new documents very easy.
There were some concerns with the old website in terms of security and overall code that AKEA helped MSIA to overcome. The new E-Commerce functions on the new website are secure and very easy for visitors to renew their membership and pay their dues online.
The website redesign took place in 2017 and took about 3 months. During the course of the project AKEA provided website consulting, web design, WordPress development and integrated E-Commerce functions with integrations for credit-card processing.
MSIA key stakeholders received training on website maintenance, best practices and are able to make content edits with confidence. Uploading new images and PDFs and integrating media on the website is now simple.
AKEA provides ongoing technical support for MSIA as well as secure E-Commerce web hosting.
We are proud to work with MSIA and we are ready to work with your Association.
