Nebraska's Sarpy County Launches a Brilliant New Website Geared Toward Users
Teaming up with Nebraska Interactive, the enthusiasts for efficiency, the newly redesigned Sarpy County website focuses on the information architecture and the citizen user. As a county website, aggregating content is challenge one. On the homepage, easy access to county-wide services, mapping, forms, employment information and more are within one selection away. Hundreds of pages of information to communicate is a mammoth task when considering how to make it effortless for users.
“County government has a large amount of data that is very important to the public. We monitored usage and strove to provide a greater ease of access to this information. Navigation tools were developed with the end user in mind,” said Mark Walters, Director of Sarpy County Information Systems.
The site was designed using clean subpages with minimal icons for the most-requested services to aide users in identifying and navigating the diverse and abundant data on the site. The navigation features Justice and Public Safety, Boards and Commissions, Offices, Transparency, and an About page providing further content linking to other county pages. Important information from Sarpy County is featured on the homepage for impromptu, time sensitive matters.
“When Nebraskans in Sarpy County need content, we want to assure it’s organized in a comprehensible and responsible manner. The collaboration with the whole team was rewarding, and we are happy with the outcome,” said Brent Hoffman, GM of Nebraska Interactive.
