TBG (The Berndt Group), www.berndtgroup.net, a prominent and growing national digital agency located in Baltimore, MD, brought home two 2015 WebAwards for Outstanding Achievement for its work on nationally recognized websites, the Children’s National Health System and TBG’s recent website redesign. These recognitions are a growing addition to the many awards the Children’s National and TBG site have won since launching in 2014.

Since 1997, the Web Marketing Association has set high standards for digital marketing and development of top websites by administering the annual WebAwards. The organization is comprised of volunteers who are experts in Web development, internet marketing, public relations, and Web design. The WebAward program is committed to identifying the best websites in 96 sectors and has been doing so for 17 years.

After selecting TBG through a rigorous RFP process, Children’s National sought to develop a website that improved patient experience, improved physician satisfaction, and aligned with the health system’s updated branding. TBG developed Web strategy recommendations based on creative analysis and best practices research, in addition to a series of interviews with top stakeholders within Children’s National. This process enabled TBG to develop a new Web strategy, design, and user-driven, higher usability architecture for the site that resonates for all users, especially patients and their families. TBG continues to work with Children’s National to deepen integration, migrate and improve microsites, and making greater use of the Sitecore CMS platform.

The WebAward is the eighth award TBG has won for its work on the Children’s National site. Previous awards include a Digital Health Award, Healthcare Advertising AwardAster AwardSummit AwardHorizon AwardADDY Award, and Omni Award.

When it came to redesigning its own Web presence, TBG took its updated online presence very seriously. TBG has spent the last 24 years in the business building a national reputation as one of the best Web developers in the country and making our company a great place to work. It was imperative that the new site tell the story of this growth and expertise. Built completely in Sitecore CMS, the full responsive website enables personalization and customer engagement, along with greater social media engagement. TBG also focused on enhancing its Projects/Portfolio section that details case studies on major projects. The new site also gives a better sense of TBG’s company culture—what it’s like to work here, what it’s like to work with us as a client, and what we’re like outside of the conference room. Overall, the site is a state-of-the-art example of Web development best practices. TBG’s site was also recognized with a Summit Award, Horizon Award, and an Omni Award.

“Receiving recognition for your own website is always appreciated, but it’s more rewarding when acclaim comes for a project in a niche market,” said CEO and President of TBG, John Berndt. “We are continuing to build our healthcare portfolio and look forward to working on the digital systems of more clients, whether hospitals, children’s hospitals, other specialty care centers, or healthcare service providers.”

These recognitions go hand in hand with the numerous awards and recognitions that TBG has received throughout the years, including a recent and continued recognition from the Baltimore Business Journal. In addition, TBG has won numerous awards for its work, including Sitecore Site of the Year, multiple ADDY® awards, and Webby honors (the “Oscars” of the Web).
