Solodev, the digital customer experience platform, and its web design partner DigitalUs won a Silver award for the 15th annual Davey Awards. The international design competition awarded Solodev the Silver in the Energy Website category for its work on Windstar LPG Inc.
In addition to a revived and more accessible web design from DigitalUs, Solodev collaborated with Windstar to provide a reliable, easy-to-use infrastructure where they could host their digital customer experiences. Solodev looked to hosting leader Amazon Web Services to give Windstar the hosting infrastructure they needed to accomplish their digital goals. This included leveraging services like AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) that allows Windstar to quickly auto-scale their capacity up and down as their computing requirements change.
"At Solodev, we've always been focused on the critical role of design for transforming web experiences,” Matt Garrepy, Solodev CDO, said. “Our users want greater freedom and control for building unique digital customer experiences that convert interest and drive results. The Davey Award for Windstar also reflects our commitment to helping retail brands digitally transform their physical experiences with immersive web and mobile channels that connect with their audiences in new ways – and help grow their business.
"Seeing our agency partners build award-winning websites is a testament to our efforts and demonstrates how flexible our platform is for designing and developing whatever our users imagine.”
