The website of Sri Lanka’s premier fashion and lifestyle brand ODEL and the personal website of its founder and CEO Otara Gunewardene won the top awards at the 2010 ‘Best Web’ Awards conducted by the LK Domain Registry Office.

The ODEL website www.odel.lk was adjudged the ‘Best e-Commerce Site’ in Sri Lanka for the second consecutive year while www.otara.lk won the ‘Best Personal Website’ award for the first time.

More than 200 companies and organisations participated at this year’s competition.

“These awards reflect our continuous effort to maintain the highest standards in all aspects of our interaction with customers,” said Gunewardene. “Selling online involves more than just creating an online shop. We recognise and cater to customer requirements and have made the website as user friendly as possible.”

The award-winning ODEL website is being revamped to take the online shopping experience even closer to the regular shopping experience, she added.

In 2009 the ODEL website won two awards for ‘Best Website Design and Content’ and ‘Best e-Commerce Website’ at the ‘Best Web’ Awards and was also among the top five in the ‘Most Favourite Sri Lankan Website’ competition judged on the popular vote.

The ODEL chain now comprises of stores at Alexandra Place, Maharagama, Kohuwala, Mount Lavinia, Moratuwa, Panadura, Nugegoda (Warehouse), Dickman’s Road, Ja-ela, Majestic City, Crescat (Backstage), Battaramulla and at the Bandaranaike International Airport.
