Information : Internet Website
Raytheon Missile Systems Company’s (RMSC’s) Internet website is an excellent way for the company to communicate information, provide services, and highlight accomplishments. Two aspects of this website are the Human Resources and the Media Relations web pages.
The Human Resources web page provides a simple and easy way for Internet visitors to obtain initial information on the company. Here, job openings at RMSC are posted, and visitors can make requests for additional information via e-mail. Like other companies in the defense market, RMSC gets numerous requests for photographs and videos. The Media Relations web page enables the company to furnish visitors with up-to-date information and graphics pertaining to its missile weapon systems. This web page contains high-solution JPG images of all product lines manufactured by RMSC, as well as short MPEG and AVI digital movies that display the systems in operation. These graphics can be previewed and/or downloaded by Internet visitors for public use. If a sharper image of a digital movie is needed, visitors can request a video tape (typically in Beta format) from the company. The Media Relations web page provides RMSC with a cost savings of $3.00 per photograph and $5.00 per movie. With requests numbering in the thousands per year, these savings can be significant.
RMSC’s Internet website has other features and services, including historical background on the company; information related to community relations; links to other websites; and the automated rotation of images on pages so frequent visitors will see a constantly changing website. Potential vendors of RMSC can also access pertinent information and initiate contact. RMSC’s Internet website was set up by enlisting the services of a small, start-up web page company in the local area. This company offered RMSC a fixed price of $25,000 to run and maintain the website with unlimited update allowances.
