Insercorp was awarded a new contract with the Government of Sussex County, Virginia to develop a new website while continuing to manage the Sussex County Government Portal at www.sussexcountyva.gov. Originally built on iPlasmaCMS2 in 2010, Insercorp was able to provide a complete re-design of the website while keeping costs down for the rural county with a population of about 12,000.
The new website provides for an enriched user experience. The responsive design is scalable and accessible on computers, tablets, and smartphones. Re-designed navigation menus provide for a user driven experience, making it easy for citizens, business owners, and visitors to discover all that Sussex County has to offer.
