Securing one win, let alone two, is a genuine coup,” says WRIS Web Services’ president, Charlie Meyers.

When the 15th annual WebAwards were handed out on September 12, 2011, WRIS Web Services received two noteworthy nods. The web development and design firm from Cleveland, Ohio scored two Standard of Excellence awards, one for outstanding development in web design and another for outstanding achievement in web development. This double achievement publically recognizes the superior talent WRIS provides in just two of the many web-related services it offers.
According to Royal.Pingdom.com, 21.4 million new websites debuted in 2010, bringing the total number of online presences to 255 million. In such an over-saturated sphere, it is difficult to stand out from the crowd. The WebAwards were launched in 1997 to help web designers do just that. This fierce competition singles out just a few hundred websites each year, and this year two of those rarities owe their creative ‘standing out from the crowd’ to WRIS Web Services’ expertise.
Conceived by the Web Marketing Association as a means of raising the bar for web development, the WebAwards are the culmination of careful scrutiny by independent expert judges from around the world. Seven stringent criteria go into the judging process: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use. At the end of the judging process, the best websites from among the thousands of entries received are singled out with a WebAward designation. This competition is the premier award recognition program for Web developers and marketers worldwide. As a result, bragging rights to a trophy help interactive professionals promote themselves, their companies and their best work to the outside world.
“Given the competitive nature of the event, securing one win, let alone two, is a genuine coup,” says WRIS Web Services’ president, Charlie Meyers. “We’re particularly proud that our two Standard of Excellence wins came from two widely varying industries, thereby demonstrating the breadth of our capabilities.”
The divergent categories of which Meyers speaks are school (for which WRIS won an Outstanding Development in Web Design WebAward for the Cleveland Heights – University Heights website) and healthcare (for which the company was recognized with an Outstanding Achievement in Web Development WebAward for the Request a Test website). Both nods included a Standard of Excellence designation, which recognizes a site for its above-average guidelines and functionality, according to which all websites should hold themselves up to for measurement.
