Enköping municipality and HiQ win special award for usability

Yesterday, the Swedish Publishing Awards’ “Usability Prize” was presented to Enköping’s new municipality website, developed together with HiQ. The jury’s statement read: “For amazing focus on helping the user find its way – bingo!”

“This feels great. Not least to win together with one of our brave and forward-thinking clients, for a solution that is easy to use and that makes people’s everyday lives a bit simpler,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ.

HiQ had an overall responsibility from concept and design to final solution. The target was to create a site that simplifies for everyone living and working in Enköping.

“We’re incredibly happy. Anyone working with communication in a municipality is familiar with the challenges in the amount of information that needs to be available for the citizens. Therefore usability, accessibility, and simplicity have been in focus in the entire project, and we have had a good collaboration with HiQ through all steps. This award shows us that we are on the right path,” says Anna Densjö, web strategist in the municipality of Enköping. 

“We are very proud – of the award, of the trust we have received from Enköping, and of a developing and successful partnership. Congratulations to our client and to the entire project team! This assignment is yet another example of how we at HiQ are broadening our operations, not least here in the region,” says Åza Solomon, client manager at HiQ.

Enköping’s municipality web was also nominated in the “Public sector sites” category, just like the Kungälv municipality’s new communications platform, also developed together with HiQ.

“In the digitalisation of society, a municipality site is important for dialogue, influence, and inclusion. And as with all digital solutions, it’s important to offer a nice and easy user experience. This award and these nominations show us that we at HiQ deliver what we promise – innovation with high quality, always focused on simplicity for the user,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
