This new website not only gives us the tools to better communicate with our citizens, but it drastically improves our promotional outreach to tourists and retirees. We couldn’t be happier with the great work that we’ve accomplished with Vision Internet.
Southport, North Carolina (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
This week marks the launch of the City of Southport’s new website – http://www.cityofsouthport.com. With this launch, the City sheds its outdated existence and takes a fresh approach to online community interaction.
When strategizing about the new website, the City was certain it needed a complete overhaul to be a success. To make an undertaking of this magnitude manageable, the City worked with the government website development team at Vision Internet. The two teams transformed the website’s design, navigation, and content management, drastically improving accessibility to information and services.
The vibrancy of the new design immediately engages site visitors as they land on the homepage. Southport’s idyllic coastal lifestyle takes center stage with the use of natural colors, nautical graphics, and a rotating scenic slideshow. The interior pages incorporate the same look and feel to create a design unity that the previous website was lacking.
“The new Southport website truly reflects the uniqueness of our coastal community,” noted Alderman Ken Karnin a recent interview. “This new website not only gives us the tools to better communicate with our citizens, but it drastically improves our promotional outreach to tourists and retirees. We couldn’t be happier with the great work that we’ve accomplished with Vision Internet.”
Whether the user is a current or future resident, visitor, or business owner, finding the information and services they need will be a breeze. The website navigation interlinks the various web pages using a number of intuitive tools. The dropdown menus of the main navigation provide a well-organized layout of the website. On the homepage, a number of icons and buttons link users directly to popular interior pages. Meanwhile, breadcrumbs and left-side navigation menus keep users from getting lost while surfing interior pages.
The technology behind the new website is the preferred industry government content management system, the Vision CMS™. A number of North Carolina communities utilize these technologies including the City of Greensboro and the Town of Chapel Hill.
