“The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet”, said Dean Dorazio, CEO of Wakefly. “As an outsourced marketing firm, we’re really proud to win this award. The combined Wakefly and Kewill team worked together to define Kewill’s new look and feel and to incorporate the company’s goals into the site in a user-friendly way. The site’s navigation, and the functionality we built into the site, truly lends itself to lead generation.”
According to Brian Mahony, Director of Marketing and Business Development for Kewill, “Wakefly did a great job helping us achieve the goals for the new web site, which first and foremost included increased lead generation, but we also wanted it to project our market leadership, reflect our corporate identity and brand, and quickly and effectively describe and position our products and solutions on a global as well as regional basis. Wakefly guided our global cross-functional team to a design that met the needs of all stakeholders, from marketing to sales, to support and human resources. The final design was sleek and modern and user friendly. Wakefly hit a home run.”
