"A kiwi tech company is behind the world’s best property website.
Auckland based website company OneClick built and designed the supporting systems for Colliers International Canada, which took home gold at the International Property Awards in London last month.
OneClick founder and chief executive Jason Platt says this is a pleasing result for both companies.
He says OneClick has been working with Colliers for half a decade and the relationship between the companies is only growing stronger.
The competition was tough, with more than 2000 entries across 110 countries.
Mr Platt says the thing which set OneClick apart from the rest was the company’s focus on user experience and website integration.
He says there are many websites which struggle to have an integrated system but it’s important that things operate seamlessly.
“Many other sites get too wrapped up and focus on how their businesses see what they do, rather than how the consumer sees it,” he says.
He says it’s important to identify how the consumers view a website.
“That’s important because a website is the only real point of contact a consumer has where multiple channels all come together with content functionality,” he says.
The user journey has to be planned out well and translated into a visual navigation which resonates with the end user, not with the company.”
Colliers International’s Canada chief executive David Bowden is also pleased with the feat.
“We are very honoured to receive this recognition, only within the Americas, but globally.” "
