C5 Alliance Celebrate States of Jersey Website Success in Local Government Index
C5 Alliance welcome the news that the new version of gov.je, the official website of the States of Jersey, has achieved the number one position for the first time ever in the latest Sitemorse UK Local Government Quarterly Index.
C5 Alliance worked on the eGovernment project in collaboration with other local technology experts including MalletCrane, SwitchDigital, E-scape, Webreality and independent consultant Melissa Chester. The team sought inspiration from some of the best government sites in world and designed the new website with a focus on clarity, user-friendly design, usability for those with disabilities and functionality on mobile and tablet devices.
The Sitemorse UK Local Government Quarterly Index assessed 424 Local Government departments, awarding gov.je the overall top ranking score of 9.34 out of 10, based on the websites' functionality, accessibility, code quality, performance, email address validity and metadata.
Mark Loane, CEO of C5 Alliance commented:
"To have worked on a site that ranks so highly in the latest Sitemorse UK Local Government Quarterly Index has been a great experience. Gov.je is an excellent example of what can be achieved when you bring together the best experts from local companies to deliver world-class solutions for government. We take quality and usability very seriously and we hope that people find the self-service approach on gov.je quicker and more convenient. This ranking reflects the efforts of everyone involved from States web team, at C5 and from the other local businesses who all collaborated on the project. We will now work to improve the quality of the gov.je site so that it continues to have a positive impact on an ongoing basis."
