Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the redesigned Expresslane.org website, developed by NIC Louisiana for the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV), has earned two international awards.
The website earned gold in the Hermes Creative Awards and silver in the MUSE Creative Awards. Both awards are annual international competitions that honor and recognize creative professional teams and their work.
“We are thrilled that the site was recognized not once, but twice, and congratulate the OMV for their dedication to making government interactions more accessible and efficient,” said Kellie Benoit Kerstetter, general manager of NIC Louisiana. “The primary goal of the site is to improve the citizen’s digital experience, and our team at NIC is proud to be a part of accomplishing that with the OMV.”
NIC Louisiana, part of NIC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyler Technologies, worked with the OMV to redesign Expresslane.org in January of 2021 to further simplify interactions with state government and to enhance the overall citizen experience.
The new website presents featured online services and important information to Louisiana’s citizens in a user-friendly format and is accessible on any device. From the redesigned Expresslane.org, users can take advantage of many popular online services such as:
- Vehicle registration renewal
- Driver’s license renewal
- Duplicate ID and driver’s licenses
- Official driving records
- Scheduling appointments
The remodeled website further simplifies interactions with state government and enhances the overall citizen experience. Since relaunching, the website has set new monthly records for users in both January and March.
“This is evidence of the hard work that went into this project, and it speaks volumes to the commitment we have in providing our customers with a convenient online experience,” said Karen St. Germain, OMV commissioner.
