TBG (The Berndt Group), a national digital agency and Sitecore Gold partner headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, is proud to announce that the agency won a WebAward for its work on www.UMMS.org.

University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is a university-based regional healthcare system focused on serving the healthcare needs of Maryland. TBG redesigned and consolidated more than 12 UMMS domains into one state-of-the-art digital ecosystem on the Sitecore platform. The sites are standardized so that they all have the same look-and-feel to ensure brand consistency. High contrast photography, compelling imagery, and interactions encourage user flow and conversion. With the migration to a single platform, content updates on the back-end create changes to appear on many pages across the digital ecosystem. The site’s improved Google Maps API allows users to search and access hospitals quickly and more easily, and integration with Kyruus results in a more robust Find a Doctor tool, which searches doctors across the entire system. TBG continues to work with UMMS to improve the site and to make greater use of the Sitecore CMS. The WebAward is the 3rd award for the UMMS site. The site also won an Omni Award and a Digital Health Award.

 “It’s very rewarding to receive another award for a top-notch healthcare system site,” said CEO of TBG, John Berndt. “The UMMS.org website is an excellent, world-class healthcare system website with improved Find a Provider search, Locations search, and user experience. We look forward to continuing to work on the University of Maryland Medical System’s digital ecosystem.”

The WebAward win goes hand-in-hand with the numerous awards and recognition TBG has received throughout the years, including continued recognition from the Baltimore Business Journal in its Top Web Agencies Book of Lists. 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).
