Bluescope was approached by Mid-West Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association in early 2014 with the goal of creating a functional website in which the Mid-West Spina Bifida team could promote the daily ongoings of the association. They had previously operated a website with little functionality to insert news and events. Unable to increase their online presence and visibility, Bluescope worked closely with the team to present a website structure to suit their needs by basing the updated website around the previous design.
The Mid-West Spina Bifida Association is a voluntary organisation run by parents and friends of people in County Limerick, Clare, and North Tipperary who live with one or both of these conditions. They provide services to 103 families. Members range in age from newborn to just over 46! Their services include; physiotherapy (including assessment and intervention), orthotics, counseling for members and family, computer classes, cookery, leadership and self awareness development, and much more.
By working hand-in-hand with the Mid-West Spina Bifida team, we were able to gain a deeper insight into their organisation and provide them with a user-friendly CMS, Joomla. This CMS offers the ability to add latest news and events posts in which promotes the daily ongoings of the great work which is being done by the Mid-West Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association.
Bluescope provided training to the Mid-West Spina Bifida team to illustrate how to use the backend of the website and how to update the latest news and events. Mid-West Spina Bifida have remained as a Managed Services client of Bluescope Technologies. We provide the organisation with all maintenance of their website, including backups and disaster recovery, as well as solving any IT issues that may arise within their organisation. As a result, Mid-West Spina Bifida can spend less time operating their website and IT infrastructure and spend more time continuing to make a difference in many people's lives.
