AsMA recognized among the 2013 Davey Awards Silver winners

10/30/2013 – American Technology Services, Inc. (ATS®) announced today that its client, the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) was selected out of over 4,000 entries to receive a Silver Davey Award for AsMA’s successful website redesign. The Davey Awards are judged and overseen by the International Academy of Visual Arts (IAVA) and honors the finest creative work from the best firms, agencies, and companies around the world.

“I am very pleased that our collaborative efforts have resulted in the recognition of the Aerospace Medical Association website” said Jeffrey C. Sventek, AsMA Executive Director “The process of designing, developing, constructing, and activating our website in collaboration American Technology Services was thorough, pleasant and efficient. It has helped us in increasing our membership and we will continue to work closely with ATS to maintain components of our website that help us update this most important marketing and information distribution capability.”

“ATS first started working with AsMA in 2012, after being selected through a competitive RFP process. “Working collaboratively with AsMA through our discovery and information architecture process helped ensure this project’s success. Not only does the site look better, it’s greatly improved from a visitor usability perspective. AsMA has been a great partner and we look forward to what we can accomplish together next” noted Adam Hostetter, head of ATS’ Design and Development group.

The new site was built on the Kentico CMS, which offers advanced out-of-the-box functionality such as revision control, workflow, and in-page editing. This has refined AsMA staff’s ability to update and maintain the website while providing a consistent and user friendly experience for AsMA website constituents. ATS also integrated AsMA’s association management system (AMS) with the new site, allowing users to single-sign-on (SSO) with their backend system, for a seamless experience.

ATS delivers high-quality web design & development services for associations, nonprofits, financial institutions, government contractors, professional services firms, and other small and mid-sized organizations. From visual design, information architecture, content management system integration and hosting, to website strategy consulting and ongoing support, the company conceptualizes and brings top-notch websites that enhance audience engagement and advance clients’ online presence.

In addition to being named among the 2013 Davey Award Silver Winners, ATS’ winning website works have also received recognition in previous years from the American Web Design Awards and the Kentico Top 10 Sites of the Year Awards.
