  • I save time and money with GovCMS

    'I'm from a small organisation, we don’t have the resources or skills to manage our website. Moving to GovCMS has saved us time and money. We chose the managed service (Software as a Service), which allows us to focus on our core business. With the User Interface kit, we stood up our website with our own branding, quickly and easily. All we have to look after now is the content and some website requirements and GovCMS takes care of the rest.'

  • Creating a usable, accessible and unique website

    'Usability and accessibility is important to us so the Australian Government Design System and the Digital Service Standards were great resources for ensuring our website met the highest standards. We were still able to customise components of the design system for a unique website that reflects our agency.'

  • Our website meets accessibility requirements

    ‘Accessibility was is of the most important requirements for our website. We used the Australian Government Digital Service Standards. Our website allows people to navigate our site through the tab key, we have text alternatives for our videos, use alt text and more.

  • I use the GovCMS Community to share ideas and solve problems

    'We use the GovCMS Community to share ideas with others working in similar roles. GovCMS is changing the culture of government to become more collaborative. In the past we've felt isolated, not being able to connect and find support from people working in the same field. The community has saved us time, as we use it to troubleshoot small issues with our website. The events are an opportunity to connect with others who use the platform and share knowledge.'
