Airtel Nigeria’s corporate website has been named the best according to Web Jurist panelists and leading consulting firm, Philips Consulting.
Airtel beat all its closest rivals including MTN, Etisalat and Glo to clinch the coveted prize in the telecoms category at an event that was attended by telecoms professionals, bankers, business leaders and pundits within the Information Communications Technology domain.
Airtel Nigeria’s General Manager, Revenue Assurance, Kingsley Unah, received the award on behalf of the company.
The company’s corporate website has the best aesthetics and sits on an elevated pedestal when compared with other contenders in the category. The organizers also said the criteria used in the rating of websites of corporate organisations in Nigeria include aesthetics, technical aspects, web content, customer experience and performance.
Commenting on the accolade, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Airtel Nigeria, Segun Ogunsanya, said, “At Airtel Nigeria, we are committed to realizing one of our key objectives of becoming a data-centric organization and Nigeria’s number one mobile Internet Company. We are glad that our corporate website bears testimony to this and we will continue to engage telecoms consumers in Nigeria via our revolutionary corporate website, www.ng.airtel.com ,” he said.
The Web-Jurist ratings commenced in May 2001 with version 1.0 in a move to critically and objectively evaluate the effectiveness of websites in Nigeria, focusing initially on the financial services industry and taking into account what the customer wants.
The Web-Jurist evaluation tool used for the ratings was developed using intelligent algorithms and the process entails a step-by-step web analysis using detailed criteria developed specifically to evaluate the effectiveness and performance of web sites.
