City of Naperville Website Wins National Award

Naperville, Ill. - On March 14, the City of Naperville received a North America Customer Website Award from Episerver, the content management software company that powers the City of Naperville’s website. The award was presented in Episerver’s Customer Service category, with the site being noted as one that met the goals and needs of a variety of audiences.

“Our City’s website is not only a key marketing tool for the City of Naperville, but it is an important avenue by which our residents, prospective and current citizens and businesses receive City information,” Communications Manager Linda LaCloche said. “When we partnered with WSOL, a full service digital agency and Episerver partner, to relaunch our website almost two years ago, creating a better online experience for our customers was the primary goal. To be recognized on the national stage for these efforts is exciting.”

Naperville’s responsive website, which is tailored to meet the demands of a mobile society, launched in June 2016 after an extensive redesign process led by WSOL that incorporated community feedback. During the redesign process, careful consideration was made in how information was presented to the many audiences that comprise Naperville, including those who live, work and explore the community. With a guiding philosophy of continual improvement, the site is updated daily by City staff with relevant information about City projects, initiatives, news and events.

The City of Naperville accepted the award at the 2018 Episerver Ascend conference.
