Water Corporation win a 2014 Stevie Award!

High-achieving organisations and executives around the world have been announced as Stevie® Award winners in The 11th Annual International Business Awards, the world’s only international, all-encompassing business awards program.

Precedent are proud to announce Water Corporation as bronze Stevie Award winners in the energy and utilities website category!

Winners were selected from more than 3,500 nominations received from organisations and individuals in more than 60 nations and were judged by more than 250 executives worldwide.

Since 2012, Western Australia’s Water Corporation has embarked on a customer-focussed digital transformation with Precedent to redefine and improve their digital offering and, in particular, the way in which they interact with their customers and wider community to encourage sustainable water use.

For Water Corporation and Precedent, the award is a testament to the ongoing work as part of the three-year plan to provide continual improvements to their digital presence, with the next phase focussing on mobile and accessibility projects to improve the overall customer experience.

User-centred design done well can deliver amazing results, but the focus on users must be maintained the whole way through the project and beyond. The Water Corporation site is an excellent example of high-quality visual design combining with a strong UX focus.

“We’ve come a long way with our digital journey, and whilst we’re really happy with our achievements so far we remain focussed on delivering more value to our customers and our business. This means further improving the experience and services we offer our customers.” Tabitha Berger, Digital Channel Manager at Water Corporation.

“We are immensely proud of the Water Corporation website.  Our whole team – Precedent and Water Corporation combined – maintained focus on the Corporation’s audiences the entire way through the project and the result is an excellent example of what can be achieved with strong user-centred design.

The site has a pure, clean and fresh look and feel, and truly represents Water Corporation as the friendly, approachable and expert organisation they are.

More importantly it provides simple and intuitive journeys to the information that their customers need and through key tasks they want to complete.” Rachel Hunter, Director of Client Services (Asia-Pac) at Precedent.
