We couldn’t be happier to announce the site Aptera’s web team built for Allied Van Lines has been awarded Sitefinity’s Website of the Year Award for 2016 in the transportation category. Progress, a global software company, published the list of winners earlier this week. This marks the third year in a row Aptera has won Website of the Year.
The competition is hosted annually by Progress, the software company behind the Sitefinity Content Management System (CMS). Each year, representatives from the company create a shortlist of candidates from among all the websites built using their platform, nominating 3 sites for each of 19 categories based on: Creativity, Design, User Experience, Functionality, and Overall Presentation.
Then the nominees for each category are announced and voting commences. This year, nearly 7,400 people participated in the public voting for best websites.
Kimberly King, the Vice President of Global Partners and Channels at Progress, said of the winners, “On behalf of Progress, I would like to congratulate Allied on this terrific achievement. While the Sitefinity platform is trusted and used by thousands of customers worldwide to create and optimize customer experiences across channels, these awards honor the progressive companies that are truly setting the pace for others.”
Allied’s award-winning site features a sleek design that highlights user-friendly prompts to conversion. You arrive on the homepage, see the smiling faces of Allied workers and their clients, and then are asked right away where you’re moving from and where you’re moving to. After entering your information, you simply click to get your quote.
We know our web design team worked hard on this project, and they were proud of it even before the award. But it’s still great to see them receiving some major recognition.
Asked for his response to the announcement, our Director of Project Management Justin Waterson said, “It was such a pleasure working with the Allied team. From the discovery phase through implementation, our goals were aligned and we were able to execute on everything we set out to accomplish. This could not have been done without great requirements that aligned the teams from the start and a talented development staff to execute. A huge thanks goes out to everyone we worked with at Allied to truly make this a team effort.”
