No longer a rojak of information; each type of information has been gifted its own neat, full-screen section
For our work, we were awarded “Best in Class
“ in the “Government” category by Interactive Media Awards in 2015.
Our utilisation of Scrum in the development process made a good impression on the Gov.sg team.
“As the revamped Gov.sg is the first agile website project for MCI, I really appreciated Xtremax’s positive attitude and professionalism shown in understanding the user’s requirements, and educating [my team] on this new development methodology,” said Ngin Huiling, an IT consultant from the MCI’s Group IT Division.
Additionally, our diligent adherence to the self-disciplinary aspects of Scrum helped the Gov.sg team complete their tasks on time, thus avoiding tardiness.
“Although we encountered some internal issues during the project’s implementation, we still managed to deliver all within the expected and agreed timeframe,” Ms Ngin said.
She added: “I would also like to commend the team’s effectiveness and ability to work under the short timeline and pressure. Again, thank you all for your service and support, and I hope that the same will continue throughout the warranty period.”
On the UI design front, the website in its final iteration contains less visual clutter, and sports a modern look: the exact opposite of its earlier self. The homepage is no longer a rojak of information; each type of information has been gifted its own neat, full-screen section.
Thus, users now have a much easier time pinpointing the information they seek, or spotting important information. We have the numbers to back this claim up: there was a 31% spike in the number of website visitors post-launch!
