Siteworx Wins Award for NEI's New Website

In July 2007, NEI launched its new website with the help of Siteworx who provided "deep expertise in user experience, application development and interactive marketing." Here's information from the PRWeb on the rewarding effort:

Siteworx has been awarded 2007 Interactive Media Awards for the redesign of the Regina Lewis, http://www.ReginaLewis.com, and Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), http://www.nei.org, websites. Specifically, both sites were judged an "Outstanding Achievement" for their design, usability, innovative technical features and standards compliance. The Regina Lewis site earned the honor in the Lifestyle Category and the NEI site in the Utilities Category.

"Our objectives were to develop for each a unique, relevant, user-centered design aesthetic, along with a scalable technology infrastructure that will support their needs over the long haul. Siteworx is proud to share these impressive awards with Regina Lewis and the Nuclear Energy Institute as recognition of our combined success," says Siteworx VP of Marketing, Patricia Mejia.

Congratulations to the Siteworx and NEI teams for their hard work!

Congrats to both groups! I know I enjoy coming to this website, as it is easy to read.. both easy on the eyes and easy to pick up the main point of each article quickly.

Congratulations, but here is a suggestion. I would like to see more information directly on the web pages, rather than having to download all of those xls and powerpoint files.

One example would be the page showing the new plant planning status.

Why not put the information right on the web page? It is just text, so why make it a xls document? Isn't it better to make the web site as easy as possible for your visitors? Taking the extra effort to download xls, ppt and pdf files may not sound like much, but I don't think that visitors surfing around want to go through the extra trouble.

Of course, sometimes the information is too large to be put on one web page. I understand that. So maybe just one file type, say pdf? Most people have pdf readers, but (believe it or not) not everyone uses excel or can read powerpoint docs.

Just a thought...
