The Challenge

The old GUGiK website didn’t conform to WCAG compliance standards and didn’t display correctly across mobile devices. Similarly, the homepage displayed a lot of information and the menu was too complex, making it difficult and time consuming to find key information.

The Solution

Squiz Poland redeveloped the website in compliance with WCAG 2.0 level AA and RWD standards, and the Public Information Bulletin (PIB) structure now conforms to all legal requirements.

The complex menu structure was simplified and the introduction of theme-specific icons improved the website’s transparency and graphic layout and made it easier to find information.

The web portal uses an API provided by the GUKiK and enables information from the to be displayed on the website alongside the content they already have.

Funnelback Search enables users to search over 20,000 land survey records and find the results they are looking for quicker and easier than ever before.

The Result

The new website went live in September 2015 in accordance to GUGiK’s users’ needs. As with all of Squiz’s projects, responsive design made the website accessible across all devices and the new site complies with all WCAG 2.0 AA standards. Not only has finding information been made easier, but also loading times were greatly improved, resulting in relevant content reaching users quicker than before.

External users weren’t the only ones to benefit from the project and the in house team can now use Squiz Matrix CMS to easily update and maintain the new website on the admin and editor level.
