Kentico Awards Winner - AIHW

Zeroseven is proud to announce that the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has won the Kentico Site of the Year 2017 – Special Jury Awards in the Largest Site category.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) is responsible for producing high quality reports and information on key health and welfare issues in Australia. By collecting and reporting on a variety of issues and topics such as health and welfare expenditure, disability and homelessness, AIHW is providing an invaluable service in the quest to improve the health and living conditions for all Australians.

The process for the design and development of the site involved delving extensively into user research and determining the needs for the different types of users of the website. User interviews and user personas enabled us to obtain a solid understanding of the requirements for the build and discovered that simplicity, consistency and a sophisticated look and feel would work best.

A simplified home page and well-designed navigation, along with reliable and easy to use search functionality ensured that every user would have the best chance of finding the information they’re looking for. Kentico was the ideal CMS to use as it provides an intuitive, customisable solution for a highly complex scenario.

AIHW receives over 400,000 visits per month and contains around 8,200 pages of content which needs to be edited, staged and reviewed in distinct groups of nodes, rather than node by node. Reports would contain large sub-trees of nodes of varying types, along with associated images and documents, as well as top-level information that would apply to all the nodes beneath it.

Elizabeth Gibbons, Director of Client Services at Zeroseven says, "We're extremely honored to have been recognised with this award. Working with AIHW to produce their new website has been a very rewarding experience and Kentico has provided the ideal platform to provide this valuable service to Australians."
