Interactive User Experiences Lead to Award-Winning Solutions

Okotoks Tourism Website

At Upanup we’re all about the user. Every website we design and develop focuses on optimizing the user experience and enhancing usability through intuitive, user-friendly solutions. We pride ourselves in the online experiences we create and when we’re recognized for our efforts, we can’t help but get a little excited.

This week we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the recently launched—a site designed exclusively around enhancing the user experience—has won a Platinum dotCOMM award. Not only is this the first dotCOMM award for Upanup, but it is also the first time we’ve been recognized for our work in the tourism industry.

The dotCOMM Awards are an international competition, “honoring excellence in web creativity and digital communication.” The competition is exclusively web focused and honours techniques that transform how services are being communicated to audiences on the web—something we are pleased to have accomplished with Okotoks.

The new tourism site provides an interactive experience for users that can be customized based on their needs. By using simplified navigation, highlighted itineraries, and integrated maps with pinned locations of where to eat, sleep, and play, users can find exactly what they are looking for quickly, easily, and from any device. Creating a unique experience that highlights everything Okotoks has to offer.

We’re honoured to have had the opportunity to create this award-winning solution for the Town of Okotoks. We look forward to supporting their ongoing website needs and continuing to provide the best possible experience for their site users.
