VANCOUVER, BC – FCV Interactive has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the transportation website category of the 12th Annual International Business Awards, for its website redesign of www.calgarytransit.com.
Helping residents and visitors connect to the people and places they care about, www.calgarytransit.com is a mobile-friendly, scalable and customer-centred website that streamlines user tasks and integrates all transit services into a single site. Features include WCAG 2.0 (AA) accessibility, real time service updates, improved information architecture and responsive design. With Calgary Transit riders accessing the site via phone, tablet and desktop, real time transit information is available to almost 20,000 mobile transit users daily.
The International Business Awards are a premier business awards program with entries from more than 60 nations and territories. Over 3,700 nominations were received this year in a wide range of categories and industries. After two months of preliminary judging and two weeks of final judging, award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide. The Gold Stevie Award received by FCV recognizes outstanding web design excellence and technology in the transportation industry.
