ACWA Website Redesign
The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) ACWA is a statewide, non-profit association representing more than 450 public water agency members throughout the state. ACWA’s Web site has long been an important resource for ACWA members. In recent years, the general public is increasingly visiting the ACWA site for general information on water, drought and other topics.
ACWA approached SymSoft to redesign their website to effectively serve this new audience with a more streamlined navigation and personalized information delivery to allow acwa.com visitors to find what they want quickly and easily. The website also needed to have a stronger emphasis on the search function and content indexing will provide a more intuitive experience and allow visitors to find information quickly.
SymSoft redesigned the website with a new information architecture and visual design and implemented Drupal CMS for easy content updates. We also provided robust and extensible taxonomies, along with strategy to maintain it. We implemented personalization and eCommerce features for selling classifieds and ACWA material online. The enterprise search and filtering allows users to find what they are looking for quickly.
