New Wiregrass, Ben Lomand and NEMEPA sites go live the same week

November 25, 2020By Andy Johns

Last week was an unprecedented week for WordSouth and three of our clients. Within five days, we helped launch fresh, industry-leading websites for Wiregrass Electric Cooperative, Ben Lomand Connect and North East Mississippi EPA. WordSouth and our parent company, Pioneer Utility Resources, have helped launch more than 100 utility sites around the country, but rarely if ever have three sites gone live in the same week. Each site was built to not only look good, but also help the respective organizations accomplish their communication goals.

As with most utility sites, a number one priority for Wiregrass Electric members is easy access to their payment account. With this in mind, the login was integrated into an attractive layout front and center to make things easy for members. WordSouth’s Powerful websites have built in integrations for both NISC and SEDC.

Additionally, Wiregrass Electric needed the site to showcase the wealth of content generated in their Alabama Living magazine and their My Hometown Power newsletter. As an added feature, the peanut statue and ferris wheel in the custom illustrated footer give a shoutout to two local landmarks that emphasize WEC’s commitment to being active in their local communities.

Visitors to the new Ben Lomand Connect website are immediately engaged in the video content showcasing telco staff and the region’s natural beauty. 

Like Wiregrass, the custom illustrated footer adds a local flair. The plants growing in rows harkens to McMinnville’s status as the Nursery Capital of the World, while the waterfall and kayak highlight the region’s identity as a hub for outdoor recreation.

North East Mississippi EPA’s new site not only has an integrated account login but also has a tab in the top right corner to take visitors to their CrowdFiber page. As with all Powerful websites built by WordSouth, the site is searchable, translatable, accessible and mobile responsive.
