Anderson County, SC (March 26, 2021) – County Administrator Rusty Burns announces the launch of a user-friendly, modern website. The redesign of the County’s website, in addition to its recently launched app, allows the County an important step toward the transformation of Anderson County’s digital presence. The County’s website redesign—AndersonCountySC.org—features a completely revamped homepage, improved accessibility, and streamlined access to the most frequently used services.
The County utilized website heat-mapping and analytics to determine the most accessed content and services to guide site improvements. “County government should be open and accessible, and the County’s newly designed website allows residents and visitors to easily access county services and information they need to be engaged and informed,” said County Administrator Rusty Burns. “This new site will provide all users, on any device, a better online experience.”
Additionally, the website provides a more user-oriented experience while offering visitors access to information that follows current best web practices, mobile optimization, and ADA accessibility standards.
Throughout the development process, the County prioritized the following principles:
• Clear, straightforward content.
• Easy to use navigation.
• Provides direct access to information.
• Minimum page elements with maximum convenience of use.
The County began working on the website redesign in late-January 2020 and initially planned for a release date in mid-summer 2020; however, the coronavirus pandemic delayed the release. The County collaborated with DesignSensory of Knoxville, TN.
