One of the most sophisticated and innovative news media resource sites in the auto industry has won another prestigious award.
Hyundai Motor America’s on-line media resource, HyundaiNews.com, has won a Web Marketing Association’s Public Relations Standards of Excellence award. The site, launched earlier this year, was created by DMT Development Systems Group Inc.
The site boasts a long list of innovative features to help business and automotive media cover Hyundai’s vast range of activities in the fast-paced auto industry. The site won a Gold Stevie Award from the American Business Awards program in the Best On-line Press Room category in June.
DMT has designed and created Hyundai’s media portals since 2011.
“In partnership with DMT’s outstanding team, we created the all-new HyundaiNews.com to deliver our most important news and information to journalists, influencers and stakeholders on a state-of-the-art platform,” said Jim Trainor, senior group manager, Product Public Relations, Hyundai Motor America. “With the pace of news today, the hub of all our media communications has to be flexible, intuitive and anticipate the users’ needs, and that’s exactly what this site accomplishes.”
The site’s simple, compelling visual design is supported by a host of easy-to-access features that include a social media hub with a ‘Trending’ bar that keeps users apace of popular topics, a powerful search and filter function, a clever ‘Mile Counter’ that monitors the progress of the Tucson Fuel Cell vehicle, and many other useful innovations throughout the site.
