CHBDC, HDC, HBRC, NCC and WDC are all using the same web framework for their websites. The shared web platform provides a better web experience for all councils’ customers and is an easier system for council staff to manage.
A web centre of excellence is developing.
By standardising the web platform and structure, the councils make cost savings, easily share and integrate information and provide new features to customers cost effectively. One example is showing the HBRC rates on each of the council websites and vice versa, saving the customer time searching two websites. It also makes building websites more cost effective and allows Councils to keep up with the latest technologies.
CHBDC website is live on the share platform, HBRC’s website is currently being migrated and it is expected that four of Wairoa’s websites will be migrated by mid 2016.
