Off-Site Services shares in 2014 IMA Best in Class Award

Sep 3rd, 2014 by Max Tokman

We are very excited to be recognized by 2014 Interactive Media Awards as Best in Class for our work on Quorumfcu.org in collaboration with our immensely talented creative partners, Adventure House.  The goal of this project was turning an older desktop-only website into a fully responsive website supporting multiple 3rd party integrations in online banking, credit card and mortgage services.  As a public-facing financial services website, quorumfcu.org maintains 99.9% uptime and conforms to industry standards in user experience , SEO and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements.   The fact that this website is a cross-platform, cross-browser high fidelity match to approved creative, with fully branded CMS to support ongoing marketing and sales initiatives - all that certainly goes without saying.
