We’re proud to announce that one of our premier web projects, CenturyLink’s Business Markets Intranet, has been named as one of the World’s 10 Best Intranet sites for 2012!
As an unrelenting advocate for usable, functional and (of course) good looking websites, I’m especially proud of this recognition. The Nielson Norman Group is a leading user-experience research firm with worldwide name recognition among the web and user experience design community. As a long time reader of Jakob Nielson’s Alert Box, it’s humbling to know that our hard work and dedication is going to be used as an example for other designers to learn from.
Peak has worked on the Business Markets Intranet since 2007, when we helped turn a meandering, hard-to-use and outdated collection of HTML files and broken links into a streamlined, user-friendly intranet site powered by a custom content management system powered by Ruby on Rails.
In 2010, the CenturyLink (then Qwest) team engaged us, in partnership with Denver-based EffectiveUI, to redesign the site, revamp the content, and create an even more engaging, task-oriented website for it’s Business Markets team. We delivered a new site that not only added powerful tools that educate users, but also recognizes and empowers them as valuable parts of the organization.
We’re extremely proud of the result. It’s not easy to get recognition outside of the client organization for intranet sites since they’re obscured from the public by firewalls and passwords!
