Game based App

National Acoustics Laboratories

ICEMEDIA worked with NAL to test a games-based application (LiSN & Learn) to help kids with auditory processing problems. The application proved successful in addressing the issues so NAL made the decision to commercialise LiSN & Learn.

The core solution was enhanced with the addition of: a rewards-based system for effort; additional fun games; the use of avatars to accompany kids as they worked through the application; and a shop through which rewards points can be redeemed to play the fun games and to personalise the avatars. The application featured on ABC's Catalyst program.

Air Safety Manuals Online

Civil Aviation Safety Authority

All airlines need to prepare a compliant air safety manual to support their operation. CASA wanted to make the process easier for airlines to complete. They also wanted to make their review and feedback process much simpler for CASA. ICEMEDIA worked with CASA to develop an online application to support the preparation of air safety manuals. Airlines are guided through the process and supported with reference content. There is a workflow process to support feedback and approvals. This has greatly improved the quality of air safety manual and more importantly for CASA, reduced the resourcing required to support this process.

Website Refresh and Build

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission

QRIC launched a simple static website in July 2016. The site did not effectively communicate the Commission's purpose and the small communications team at QRIC found it difficult to manage and update content in order to keep the public and media up to date with QRIC's work. QRIC engaged ICEMEDIA to design and build a new, self-managed, responsive website that would allow them to more efficiently and effectively fulfil their mandate. ICEMEDIA conducted a review of the current site, developing a revised information architecture to improve content findability and ease of navigation. ICEMEDIA then designed and developed a new site in WordPress, leveraging the existing QRIC look and feel to maintain brand consistency.

The site was enhanced with a number of custom content types, and included a set of customised, multi-step workflows for managing the internal publication review and approval processes of QRIC. Additionally, ICEMEDIA designed and developed an e-newsletter template for use by the Commission in Campaign Monitor, as a means of keeping in touch with their stakeholders and communicating important messages to their subscriber base.

As a whole, the new website project included:

  • Drafting of new site information architecture
  • User Design consultation
  • Wireframe design
  • Graphic design for website and email template
  • Development of WordPress site and email template
  • Configuration of Campaign Monitor account and template testing
  • Content loading
  • Deployment
  • Training

Fireready Emergency Notification App

Fire Services Commision Victoria

ICEMEDIA worked with other divisions within its parent company, Dialog, to create an enterprise mobile application to supply millions of people with the latest Government-issued information about bushfires in Victoria. The fast and functional application uses smartphone features such as location services and Push Notifications running on a robust Amazon Web Services framework, resulting in a user-friendly and potentially life-saving application.

FireReady is a high availability application that is available as both iOS and Android native apps. It runs on smartphones and tablet computers with WiFi or mobile internet connectivity and GPS capability. It provides access to state-wide emergency data using text and Google maps with the capability to zoom in to geographic areas that affect people personally. The application allows users to be notified about Incidents, Emergencies, Total Fire Bans and Fire Danger Ratings occurring in specific areas or in their current location.

The Fire Authority website publishes news and updates from the Authority such as latest updates from the Commissioner, relevant images and emergency associated news via Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. FireReady provides links to these social media channels facilitating community awareness and supplementing self help. FireReady is designed to run in the cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Elastic Load Balancing for high availability and state wide access. The application runs 24/7 and uses auto-scaling, which allows the infrastructure to grow and contract dynamically.

Australian Government, Department of Defence

New Students, New Web Orientation

Griffith University

New university students have enough to think about, so Griffith University asked ICEMEDIA to streamline its student enrolment process and create a simple, step-by-step online workflow for both their public and secure websites.

ICEMEDIA reviewed the enrolment steps that new students need to undertake and complete their first few weeks at the university, setting up passwords, library access, learning about facilities, school fees etc. ICEMEDIA then worked with staff to create personas for their different types of students - new, mature-age, overseas - as well as for parents.

The content of the site was rationalised, and a draft user experience design created to show the steps required simply and indicate where in the process the user was at all times. The designs were tested with users, adjusted and then templates built for university staff to install on their website.

Digital Transformation: Online Forms and Dashboard

Queensland Mental Health Commission

QMHC needed a way to promote the findings of its action plans to improve mental health and wellbeing in Queensland and ensure agencies could provide information quickly using online forms as an alternative to labour intensive paper based forms.

ICEMEDIA created an online forms system so agencies could add and submit their content in an easy way for the Commission to manage. This meant agencies could provide content right up to the publication date, making the solution a much more efficient method for managing, checking and publishing content.

ICEMEDIA also created a public face for the content, creating a dashboard and detailed data area helping people, particularly researchers and policy makers, find content easier and access overarching summaries of the content before delving into the detail.

In the Moodle for eLearning

Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) approached ICEMEDIA to develop an online, interactive version of one of their paper-based short courses.

After a requirements gathering workshop and other stakeholder engagement, ICEMEDIA began building a course structure in the Moodle open source eLearning software. After adding both static and interactive course content, it was necessary to develop various customised Moodle plugins and features to meet some of RANZCOG’s specific requirements.

The result is the RANZCOG Colposcopy Online Learning Program (COLP), which consists of eight modules of around 20 pages each, plus pre- and post-tests for each module. ICEMEDIA tested the course with RANZCOG and prospective users and then packaging and released the approved course to RANZCOG.

Digital Transformation

ICEMEDIA can guide you through steps to help transform your organisation to capitalise on the opportunities offered by the digital age. To do this successfully you will need a partner that: focuses on the business objectives; designs a solution from the customer's perspective; understands how to select the right technology or technologies; has the ability to successfully integrate multiple technologies; and a business partner that can help guide the change management process.

We can also show you how to get closer to your customers, understand them better and how to talk with them more personally.

Services

Online Self-Service

Customers now expect that they can complete services online. And they expect the process will be quick, easy and highly intuitive. ICEMEDIA works with leading government and corporate organisations, creating online experiences that enhance the customer engagement.

We have some guiding principles: focus on improving rather than replicating the offline experience; consult widely and test extensively; design from the customer experience down to the technology rather than the other way around; and don't design with a focus on saving costs. Get the experience right and your customers will love it and want to use it. And then you'll reap the financial benefits.

Services

Website Integrations

Many organisations are now using the web as a main channel of their business. To successfully achieve this may require the integration of other technologies as part of the web solution.

You'll need a business partner with expertise in managing complex integrations with CRMs, ERPs and various other technologies, to create seamless online customer experiences. You can rely on ICEMEDIA to design, develop and integrate a solution that simply works.

Intranets & Extranets

Many organisations have used intranets as little more than document repositories or places where you can do a few simple HR tasks. But today, many organisations recognise the potential for intranets and / or extranets to serve as the hub that business revolves around. They are evolving to: information repositories rather than document repositories; being collaboration points; training hubs; social hubs; and many other functions that can transform and enhance the way you work.

ICEMEDIA works with leading Government and corporate organisations to plan and implement intranets / extranets to support all aspects of their business. ICEMEDIA has planning tools and processes in place to tease out your requirements and to identify potential new features and functions to improve the efficiency of your organisation.
