We are truly ecstatic about winning this award. A lot of hard work went into this website. This award is shared by many and proves that hard work and determination does pay off. To win Best in Class is truly an honor, especially coming from the IMA.
Akron, OH (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
Evolve Creative Group, the Akron, Ohio based web design company has been recognized at the Interactive Media Awards Competition™ by receiving the Best in Class Award for the design and development of the Akron METRO RTA website (AkronMetro.org). This is the highest category awarded by the Interactive Media Awards (IMA).
“We are truly ecstatic about winning this award,” said Todd Bertsch, founder and president of Evolve Creative Group. “A lot of hard work went into this website. It was the tremendous effort put in by our entire team, our strategic development partners, Summit IT Solutions and the METRO staff that made this website a success. This award is shared by many and proves that hard work and determination does pay off. To win Best in Class is truly an honor, especially coming from the IMA.”
Receiving a score of 480 points out of a total 500 available, the METRO RTA website was the only website to receive Best in Class in the “Transportation Category.”
The purpose and goal of AkronMetro.org was to give Akron METRO RTA passengers access to timely route schedules and system maps in a user friendly way. In preparing for this project, Evolve spent a large amount of time in preliminary research. The web design company engaged with passengers via online surveys and usability testing, allowing Evolve to design a website based upon feedback from the actual people using METRO RTA services.
“IMA’s choice to award METRO’s site is a testament to the hard and inspired work the teams at Evolve Creative Group, Summit I.T. Solutions and METRO accomplished. Given the improvements to METRO’s new web site, this award is a win for our passengers, too,” said Jessica Dreschel, METRO communications specialist.
