Why was the Active Places Power website redesigned / redeveloped?
The existing Active Places Power infrastructure was beginning to near the end of its life. Change Requests to redevelop specific elements of the website based on existing technology were becoming more difficult and costly to implement.
Redevelopment enabled a complete review of the existing site and the use of new technologies would provide improved functionality with a more flexible system to administer.
Following a User consultation in October 2011 to determine the features that should be retained and those that needed discarding or improving, along with new suggestions development work commenced with a first release being delivered in November 2012.
