|I was awarded a large, national research grant in 2011 for a project examining heritage tourism in Australia via visitor photography. The project runs from 2012 to 2015, and during that time will need the support of a dedicated website to help capture and collate a large number of participant photographs. Such a website will also support the project more generally; as such, I felt it needed a professional and clean look, which is something that lies beyond my own technical competencies. I'd been shown examples of ITs Easy’s work prior to approaching them and was impressed with the fresh feel of their websites. So, I approached them and they provided me with a competitive and thorough estimate for a product that fit very well with the brief I had provided.
Given the nature of the research project and the ethical requirements associated with it, I needed a website that participants could log into in order to upload photos using an alias. I needed it to have the capacity to accommodate a large number of images, each attributed to different participants. Importantly, these interactive elements needed to be intuitive and easy to use.
ITs Easy very quickly understood my brief and responded with innovative solutions.
ITs Easy delivered a product that fit my needs precisely: the website is colourful without being garish, and looks sophisticated whilst remaining intuitive and easy to navigate. Rob listened to my initial ideas and expectations, and responded graciously to my many enquiries and amendments along the way. He also gave me thorough instructions at the completion of the project - training which has ensured that I can administer and maintain the website with confidence.
I recommend ITs Easy unreservedly. When I approached them, they understood my needs immediately and created a website with both aesthetics and accessibility in mind. Rob is prompt and thorough; more importantly, he is very good at what he does.
