Soars to a Gold W3 Award

Upanup Designed Viking Air Website Wins W3 Award

It’s spread its wings, and we couldn’t be prouder. Viking, launched by Upanup in June, has been awarded a Gold W3 Award.

Released in tandem with Viking’s celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Twin Otter, the website pays homage to both the de Havilland legacy and Viking’s future-forward, global marketplace. Crafted with a mobile-first approach, Viking’s responsive, touch-friendly design speaks to the company’s highly mobile audiences and workforce.

What makes special?

It’s smart.

Integration with the company’s client relationship management systems allows for the capture of user behaviour data that can be used for continual refinements to search engine optimization and marketing along with internal sales processes. Interactive maps make finding your nearest sales contact a no-brainer.

It flies.

The Twin Otter Series 400 on the homepage actually flies thanks to parallaxing. Scroll down on the homepage to see this fun effect.

It can spec your aircraft.

This industry-first allows prospective clients to choose the options that best suit their needs and mission type, which then generates a useful load and an email summary of both the chosen options along with the options guide.

It’s fully loaded.

The addition of a searchable parts inventory makes finding your spare, quick and easy. Suppliers also have a password protected document portal that ensures that they have up to minute information.

It stays fresh.

Along with easy content updates, courtesy of the site’s Drupal content management system, also came loaded with a newsroom and a blog. Both provide the company with space to celebrate, communicate and interact with their diverse site users. Ongoing content development, search engine marketing and support and maintenance services from Upanup ensure that the site stays fresh and relevant.
