The Life Insurance Corporation of India’s website www.licindia.com has won the prestigious People’s Voice Award in the Insurance category at the 10th Annual Webby Awards. LIC’s is the only website from India to feature in the winner’s category this year.

“LIC has been in the forefront since its inception in leveraging technology and People’s Voice Award in the insurance category for the 10th Annual Webby Awards comes as another testimony of it.

Created by Tribal DDB India, the interactive arm of Mudra, the site that was launched in November 2005 is a demonstration of the importance of usability, information architecture and navigation.

Said R Lakshminarayanan, CEO, Mudra Marketing Services, “A site as vast and as heavy on traffic as this needed to demonstrate high levels of usability and robustness. We are delighted with the significant innovations that we have added to make the user experience incredibly simple and the navigation extremely smooth.”
