What we've done for them

Website Redesign and CMS

The original Autism Victoria website was developed by Revium during 2000. Due to technological advances and the development of new web technologies, new website trends has emerged which has left the current website dated and in need of a design overhaul to bring it back on par with other industry websites.

As part of the redevelopment, Revium implemented an open source Content Management System to empower staff to make content updates in-house without the need of technical intervention from their chosen website providers.
The launching of the new website also tied in with the introduction of a new corporate name, Amaze and a new logo.

Revium delivered the following services for Amaze:
  • A professional re-design and development of the website to compliment the new branding
  • Ensured that Amaze retained their current search result and page rankings and is not jeopardised by the name change from Autism Victoria
  • Provision of a Content Management System to allow authorised Amaze staff to easily add, edit and delete website content and various media formats
