HUB & PIMFA Shortlisted for TAF Website of the Year

PIMFA and HUB are proud to announce the shortlisting of www.pimfa.co.uk for Website of the Year at the Trade Association Forum’s Best Practice Awards 2018.

Based over HUB’s new Trade Association Management Platform, UseFull, the PIMFA Website is the culmination of over 9 months effort by the PIMFA Communications Team and designers, developers and content managers in the HUB team.

With winners to be announced later in the year, the site marks continued growth in digital design innovation by the financial services pre-eminent trade association. Earlier this year, the brand work completed by Cicero for PIMFA was recognised with a Sabre Award.

Over 3000 pages and pieces of secure content serve PIMFA’s growing membership of over 20,000 users, whilst events booking and functionality has been further facilitated following the introduction of new ecommerce techniques. In the backend, new features for PIMFA include data visualisation of management information, full ecommerce reporting and a new landing page builder for promotional campaigns.

Sheena Gillett, Head of PR and Communications, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted by the TAF in recognition of the huge amount of hard work that has been involved across the board to deliver a modern website with a myriad of new functionalities and improved usability for our member firms. Our new website, in conjunction with the delivery of a new suite of internal systems and the launch of the PIMFA brand, is the culmination of an evolutionary year for our 27 year old trade association”.

HUB CTO Mike Staines said: “The PIMFA site for 2018 represents the close, ongoing collaboration by both teams to build a better digital future for the membership organisation. Separate silos of information and data have been transformed in to a solid scalable conduit for PIMFAs membership value offering.”
