National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) picked up a national award for its new website.
The ASI 2015 Great Things Award was given to the Huddersfield-based charity for its IT and website project’s vision and subsequent delivery.
Anne Naylor, Director of Finance and Support Services, and David Bagley, IT Project Team Lead, collected the award at the ASI Annual Conference in London.
Using iMis software and with partners iFinity, NDNA developed its exciting new website integrated with a customer engagement management system to engage better with more than 5,000 members in England, Wales, Scotland and some worldwide.
The citation for the award read: “The nomination for a Great Things Award has been made because of their vision they have expressed and delivered on, for their website to be their main business system and the way they have positively embraced technology and found creative ways to use the software to model their complex requirements.”
Anne said: “We listened to our members and included their input into the project, which has taken just over a year to complete.
“Since the project went live in May, we have received extremely positive feedback from our members. It has enhanced our offer to our members and other customers, which includes myNDNA, a free online community for the early years sector, and made the charity’s business processes more efficient.
“This award is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the project staff team. We are very proud to receive it and be recognised for this project.”
