promoting Swedish exports
EKN, The Swedish Export Credit Agency, is an authority with the task of promoting Swedish exports by insuring the risk of not being paid in export transactions. We were asked by EKN to do a redesign and technical upgrade of their website with focus on usability.
Early in the process we narrowed down what needs the website should meet. One example was that the visitors easy should find the information they needed and the information then should be grouped in a way that makes it easy to overview. Another need was to make the specific country information and regulations easy to find and explain.
We upgraded the platform and built the new website using the latest version of EpiServer which takes full advantage of the latest web technology with powerful layout tools, advanced personalization, and testing built into the workflow. The website is also responsive which makes desktop and mobile devices go hand in hand.
As a state-owned company the requirements for optimal usability is high ad we developed the site from the ground up using the standards of WCAG 2.0 AA to meet the requirements. The result became a clear and easy-navigated website where the visitor easily finds the information they are looking for.
On May 16th, 2017, the new ekn.se was launched and we are very pleased and proud of the results and for the cooperation with EKN, a collaboration that now continues with optimization and analysis of the site!
