The website for Altair development by Indocean Developers won Gold for Best Mobile Optimized Website at the BestWeb.lk 2020 Awards. The longest running award show for websites in Sri Lanka was held at Shangri La on the 9th of September 2020.
With internet users now consuming most web content on mobile devices, the BestWeb organizers introduced the mobile optimized category for the first time in its nine year history, awarding the Gold Prize to Altair. Altair.lk was also the recipient of the highest award honour in the Best Marketing Website category.
“We knew the changing consumer trends demanded a mobile-first website” stated Pradeep Moraes, Director of Altair after receiving the award. “When we revamped our site last year we implemented best practices in usability whilst ensuring a smooth user experience” he commented.
The 2020 Best Web competition drew hundreds of entries from the industry, with some of Sri Lanka’s top companies entering their websites for consideration. The competition is the longest running competition organized by Sri Lanka’s official domain registrar. Altair’s web presence has been setting benchmarks in the industry. The previous version of Altair.lk was awarded Gold at the BestWeb Awards in 2015. The new website, launched in 2019 also won Gold for best retail website in the SLT Zero One awards held in January this year.
