Sitecore®, the global leader in customer experience management, announced this week that Hanson Dodge Creative (HDC) and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) have won the 2014 Sitecore Experience Award for Best Not-for-Profit Site in North America.
The Sitecore Experience Awards celebrate the achievements of Sitecore customers and partners who have used the Sitecore Experience Platform™ to deliver exceptional experiences for an organization’s customers as well as measurable business results.
The new Sitecore® Experience Platform™–driven EAA.org is a functional, expertly designed consolidation of 27 different EAA websites comprising more than 5,500 pages housing public and member-only content on wide-ranging topics such as the Young Eagles, EAA Museum and EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. The site is integrated with Active Commerce, the only Sitecore-native e-commerce platform, to effectively sell EAA memberships and other products.
The new EAA.org has experienced a 56 percent increase in users, a 193 percent increase in page views, a 71 increase in session duration and a 28 percent decrease in bounce rate.
"Winning another international award for our Sitecore work speaks volumes about both the quality of the talent on our team and the depth of the vision that our client partners have for using this tremendous technology to transform their organizations,” HDC President Tim Dodge said.
HDC, which was named a Sitecore Gold Implementation Partner in February 2015, is one of 11 partners to win a 2014 North America Sitecore Experience Award. This year’s award is HDC’s third Sitecore Site of the Year (North America) Category Award. The Milwaukee-based agency has also earned two Outstanding Solution Awards since it became a Sitecore partner in 2008.
