Helping hand improves online channel

Independent Living Service (ILS) New Zealand provides advice, information, products and services to assist people with disabilities to live independently.

ILS says the company is "thrilled" with the design of its new website, which goes live November 2013.

The Challenge

ILS was finding it a challenge to manage its existing New Zealand website and online store which was on ageing technology and had grown organically over a number of years. The system was broken in parts and was not functioning correctly.

The Solution

As an extension of a relationship with Independent Living Centre (New South Wales), Datacom provided sponsorship to ILS New Zealand for a new website and online shop. Designed and developed by Datacom, the new website will enable ILS administrators to manage news, information, product catalogue and sales via their online channel. Scheduled to launch in November 2013, the site will be hosted at Orbit, Datacom’s state of the art data centre in Albany.

“The Datacom team in New Zealand have been fantastic to deal with and we are thrilled with the design of the site.”
