When the Illawarra-based Economic Gardening business development group was looking to replace its website, Internetrix’s Brisx low-cost website service provided an ideal solution.
Internetrix established Brisx in 2014 to provide a quick, efficient website-building service for organisations looking for functional and affordable websites with simple content management systems that would allow them to do their own updates. Prices start at $780, making Brisx such an attractive option that within 12 months it had completed more than 900 websites for clients.
One of those clients was Economic Gardening, a business development service provided by three Illawarra councils – Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama – to help small businesses grow sustainably.
Trevor James, Group Manager Corporate Strategy at Shellharbour City Council, said when options were considered regarding the creation of a new Economic Gardening website, there was confidence in choosing Brisx because it was part of Internetrix.
“Internetrix has a reputation for high quality service and products, and Brisx delivered the quality we were looking for within our budget,” Mr James said. “The result is an easy to use and informative website with a clean, modern look and feel.
“It also gives us the ability to update information relatively easily.”
Mr James said the project had been handled smoothly from the start, thanks to good communication with Internetrix and in particular, its project coordinator Ryan McKeown.
Mr James said challenges for the project included transferring the information from Economic Gardening’s former website, and including an online (application) form with automated transmission to Council so that applications to be involved in the program could be completed and submitted with ease.
“Good communication upfront with Internetrix was critical to avoiding unnecessary changes and amendments during the process,” he said. “Ryan was quick to respond to our enquiries and provided regular updates on the build process and our needs throughout the project.”
