SWC Digital Design Team Wins Best In Class Website Design Award

November 29, 2012   //   News

The honor recognizes www.swc.com for excellence in design, messaging and implementation.

SWC Technology Partners, Inc., an award-winning digital marketing firm and provider of IT solutions to mid-sized businesses, announced that it has been awarded Best in Class by the Interactive Media Awards™ for the design, development and implementation of the SWC Technology Partners’ Website (www.swc.com). The site was one of only four honorees out of 84 entries submitted in the consulting category for Q3 2012, based on judging criteria including design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance.

The project involved a targeted redesign of SWC’s corporate website, a place for clients, prospects and potential candidates to learn more about the company, events, open positions, technology solutions, and technology trends.  From an SEO design perspective, the site has significantly improved SWC’s rankings in Google and other search engines, resulting in the acquisition of new customers for many of their technology solution offerings.  The website was built using WordPress, a market leading content management system that allows the SWC marketing team to easily manage the site and promote SWC on a daily basis by adding videos, creating new blogs and content, and promoting SWC’s solutions through various social media channels.

“As a firm specializing in digital design and marketing, we knew our corporate site would be a direct reflection of our portfolio and design capabilities, so we wanted to present a clean, professional and modern design that would appeal to a broad audience,” said Anton Shepherd, SWC Website Designer.

This is SWC’s second IMA award this year, marking a strong beginning for the SWC Design division, which was recently launched as an extension of SWC’s core technology solution portfolio. The division provides web and mobile design for customer-facing websites and mobile apps, as well as development of Microsoft SharePoint sites that drive SharePoint adoption by delivering a visually compelling, time-saving and high-value user experience. Website designers work in tandem with SWC search engine optimization specialists who assist in structuring the architecture, code and content of each site to enhance visibility in online search results.

The design team also has access to SWC’s large in-house team of solutions experts and software developers, providing important on-site technical resources to support design projects. SWC consultants and engineers are available to aid designers in selecting and delivering the appropriate back-end technology and development services, including programming and integration where needed. SWC’s years of experience with business solutions, including hundreds of SharePoint implementations since 2005, also helps ensure the success of design projects in meeting business objectives.

“It’s an honor to have our work recognized by the Interactive Media Awards,” said Elliott Bartez, Vice President of SWC Technology Partners, Inc., “We feel that our design projects are world-class examples of how the Internet can be used to enhance a company’s message and branding. This accolade is further proof of this and a testament to the standard of excellence by which SWC operates.”
