The Awards Keep Coming for the New Nebraska DMV Website

LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles' (DMV) website has once again won an award, this time for the mobile environment. The newly redesigned, mobile-responsive DMV website, just a few months after launching, was presented a Mobile WebAward for government websites by the Web Marketing Association.

The Web Marketing Association (WMA) was founded in 1997 to help set a high standard for internet marketing and development of the best websites on the World Wide Web. Staffed by volunteers, this organization is made up of internet marketing, online advertising, PR, and top website design professionals who share an interest in improving the quality of online advertising, internet marketing, and website promotion.

"We are thrilled with the Mobile WebAward," says Rhonda Lahm, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles. "One of our primary goals was to create a streamlined user experience for anyone who needs access to the DMV from their phone or tablet, in addition to the PC. This is validation of the hard work done by our team and Nebraska Interactive. It sends an encouraging message to Nebraskans of how easy and intuitive it is to interact with the DMV. Now they can find what they need by using a mobile device anywhere an internet connection can be made. That is a big step for us."

The website redesign required hundreds of hours in planning to map, edit, remove, or combine content in a logical form intuitive to the user. "Removing internal agency jargon was important," Brent Hoffman, GM of Nebraska Interactive said. "The due diligence resulted in a well-organized homepage delineated by citizen or business user. Bringing people together with the services they need is our mission every day. The DMV and Nebraska Interactive teamwork is how we were able to get the job done. We thrive on the collaboration. The award is the cherry on top."

Services, in most cases, are a single selection away in the Online Services area, including: Driver License New/Renew/Replace, Motor Vehicle Registration Renewal, Specialty Plates, Pay a Traffic Ticket, Suspension & Reinstatements, and the recently launched Commercial Driver License Renew/Replace as well as Vehicle Title & Registration, Driver & Vehicle Records, and much more all housed within one website. For circumstances where clarification is desired, users can use the Help section, featuring approximately 30 commonly asked questions and a search box.
