The Australian Small Business Champions Awards is the premier Australian awards program for recognising excellence in small business.
The awards are an amazing experience for everyone involved, with celebrity presenters, pomp and ceremony, fantastic food where everyone dresses up and has a great time.
The awards were in need of a website upgrade. Experience Digital, having worked with Precedent on the Local Business Awards ticketing system we were approached and tasked with coming up with a fresh design for this wonderful program.
The platform designed and developed as responsive to all screen sizes.
The site got 1200 unique visits in the last 7 days.
The platform has been up and running for the last 170 weeks.
There were 441 unique users in the last 7 days.
The design had to reflect the professional nature, the class and the fun of the awards. It also had to incorporate a multi-layered web form so that businesses could sign up which would intelligently filter fields based on entrant answers.
The use of a video background was a natural choice for us as what better way to accurately portray the event than a video of the event. The inclusion of the large and small video format to allow people to seamlessly switch between the longer form video and the short repeating clip was a technological hurdle which our development team solved and implemented making our designers very happy.
The form, with its filtering components was a complex logic puzzle for our development team, one which they workshopped until it was working as intended.
The backend of the Champion's website consists of an admin portal which is also an enterprise management system for all ticketing and entrant information for the site. It also monitors entrant voting and use to minimise fake entries and bot voting activity.
All transactions are handled by the website and it's integrated API's including E-Way, Mandrill and Xero.
