The West of England is a leading insurance provider to the global maritime industry, combining financial strength with outstanding service to help its Members meet the continually evolving liability environment in which shipowners, operators and charterers operate.
The new website provides enhanced functionality, more flexibility in the creation of content and a fresh and modern interface in line with the company’s new branding. The new site is built utilising Kentico 12 and an MVC development model. The site is integrated with the Club’s main business application to enable searching of continuously updated information on entered vessels and details of the Club’s network of correspondents.
We’re incredibly proud that the website was awarded a Kentico Site of the Month in December 2019. This award is presented to the best 10 websites from around the world to showcase and demonstrate the powerful and diverse capabilities of Kentico.
Tony Surkovic, Chief Information Officer, West of England said: “We are delighted with our new website. Ridgeway have crafted a site that leverages our new brand and completes the modern, professional look the Club is now portraying across all our offices and media. The site is easy and flexible for the team to use and provides us with a competitive edge.”
Ridgeway’s Managing Director, Simon Cole, says: “Having worked with the West of England for a number of years it was a privilege to design and build their new site. We look forward to continuing to support them going forward.”
