Northridge is proud to announce that it has won a 2010 Best of Industry WebAward from the Web Marketing Association. The Best of Industry award was presented to Northridge for its design and development of the Holder Construction website which is based on industry-leading Microsoft technologies including SharePoint and SQL Server.

The “Best of” distinction from the Web Marketing Association recognizes the single top scoring entry within an entire industry. The SharePoint-based Holder Construction website won the Best of Construction Industry category. Other winners of the “Best of” award this year included AT&T, Dodge, Iron Mountain, Kiplinger, Mattel, McKesson, NBC, National Geographic, Pepsi, and University of Notre Dame.

Website entries are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting, and ease of use. The award-winning Holder Construction website excelled well beyond industry averages in all seven criteria. Shared excerpts from this year’s WebAwards judges’ comments on the Holder Construction website include “fresh and clean (design) and clearly speaks to its target audience,” “Holder (website) feels open and modern,” “copy is appropriate and well written,” “great use of project portfolio,” and “great work.”

The Holder Construction website was developed by Northridge leveraging Microsoft SharePoint as the web content management (WCM) platform. The solution contains out-of-the-box SharePoint features as well as Northridge-developed custom functionality and web parts. The combination of standard and customized functionality creates a best-of-breed website solution that is easy to maintain and extend. The compelling design of the new Holder website was created by Northridge Interactive, the user experience and interactive marketing division of Northridge.

“We are excited to be recognized with a Best of Industry award for the Holder website", commented Rob Patten, Northridge CEO. “It is especially rewarding since it is one of the early wave of public websites leveraging SharePoint that effectively illustrates how SharePoint can be utilized to allow non-technical users to manage their online presence with ease.”
