The State of Alabama is proud to unveil its new and improved official website, Alabama.gov, introducing the most user-friendly design yet. With the award-winning website’s sleek and simplistic silhouette, visitors can easily discover useful local, state, and federal government information.
Alabama.gov visitors expressed their opinions about changes for the site; in return, the state listened and took action. Utilizing visitor feedback and analytical data, the site’s homepage now provides information on popular topics users want most. In addition, visitors will be able to navigate through the site more efficiently than ever before with enhanced menu options. Also, if using a tablet or a mobile device, the Alabama.gov site conforms to the size of the user’s screen, creating the best user experience possible for visitors on the go or at home.
Among many other enhancements, the site features a geo-location enabled map. This geo-location service, if enabled, will allow the map to zoom in to the users’ current location, to see hospitals, probate offices and State parks in their immediate surrounding area, without having to move the map around to find their current location. An animated weather conditions feature has also been included in the re-design, and shows statewide weather conditions along with a three-day forecast.
The Alabama.gov website was redesigned at no cost to taxpayers through Alabama Interactive’s partnership with the State via a competitively bid contract which allows the company to provide eGovernment applications and services to state agencies, boards, commissions, political subdivisions, local government agencies and quasi-government agencies within the state of Alabama. Alabama Interactive also works with more than 60 state agencies, managing over 200 online applications through a self-funded model.
