The South Australian State Emergency Service (SASES) is a volunteer-based organisation that responds to a wide range of emergencies and rescues across the state 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Primarily responsible for responding to extreme weather (including storms and extreme heat) and flooding events, the SASES also responds to road incidents, marine, swift water, vertical and confined space rescues.
Instant content updates
The new website would serve the state community with timely and precise information with the aim of helping to save lives.
A reliable Content Management Platform
Due to the critical assistance provided to the community, it was crucial for SASES to deliver services using a robust and scalable Content Management System that is employed as a vital communication platform.
Easy to use Content Management System
Given the importance of the emergency, non-technical business staff needed to be able to prepare, author and manage content with ease.
The CentricMinds CMS was integrated with existing Emergency Service Software so key information could be published seamlessly and in real-time.
Having developed large-scale business-critical websites previously for enterprise and government clientele, CentricMinds has extensive knowledge of best practice project delivery methodologies.
CentricMinds worked closely with the Communications and Information Technology teams at SASES to ensure the new website development met the business requirements and became a powerful, long-term digital business solution.
The Result - A Digital Solution that Users Trust
A reliable Content Management Solution
CentricMinds was able to deliver a complex website that narrowed the communication gap between volunteers and SASES, improved content publishing processes and provided real-time hazard information. SASES instantly communicates and shares up-to-minute warnings with communities and volunteers across the state.
