PHOENIX (October 11, 2017)—Whether you are looking for your next meeting agenda, need employment data, or want to see the agency’s most recent video, your online MAG experience just got easier. After a year of development, MAG has launched a new, redesigned website with more visuals, more interactive content, and intuitive navigation. The website, www.azmag.gov, serves as the public face of MAG and provides critical information regarding MAG activities, programs, and studies.
Perhaps the biggest change users will find is that the new navigation structure targets key program areas.
“The home page offers immediate access to a maps and data center, the calendar at a glance, and meeting agendas, so users will find it much easier to get to the pages they use most often,” said MAG Chair Jackie Meck, mayor of Buckeye. “MAG continues to focus on providing online customer service and keeping pace with new technology.”
Another new feature is a newsroom section for use by the public and the media, as well as an updated “Jobs” page where prospective employees can now apply online. The site provides easy access to social media platforms and is compatible with mobile devices.
While MAG communications staff created the new look, MAG Information Technology staff had to create numerous custom modules to handle the tens of thousands of files housed on the site. The new site is hosted on the DotNetNuke (DNN) CMS platform.
Since a soft launch of the site in August, web traffic has climbed significantly. There were 63,063 page views in August, with 44,978 unique views. This is compared to an average number of monthly page views of 33,621 and unique views of 25,071 in previous months.
