28/03/08 - Biosystems Engineering gives their website a facelift

Biosystems Engineering is a dynamic Australian engineering consultancy firm that specializes in research and development of machinery for the agricultural and forestry industries with a strong focus on commercial outcomes.

Being in operation nearly 10 years, Biosystems had an existing website designed by another local web designer. However, there was a lack of content on the website and they were unable to edit it themselves.

By switching to an NGE website, Biosystems got a fresh new look, and more importantly are now able to create a media rich website showcasing their complete portfolio and maintain it themselves!

Biosystems is an excellent example of the capabilities of a website that has been designed with business and marketing outcomes in mind.

07/02/08 - Sacred Heart School joins fellow Toowoomba Catholic Schools with NGE website

In support of education, NGE has provided subsidised websites to a number of local schools. Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School has taken advantage of this offer and built an excellent resource for both existing and prospective students, parents, and staff.

The unique feature of school websites hosted by NGE is that teachers and admin staff are able to edit and maintain the sites internally. Many of the sites feature weekly newsletters and other rapidly changing information.

Sacred Heart, whilst a latecomer to the NGE school website family, is already harnessing the technology to make sure their online presence reflects the schools image.

09/01/08 - Media Release: ToowoombaElection.com.au

NGE has launched a website that provides a central resource for residents to learn about the candidates running for Mayor and Council of Toowoomba Regional Council on March 15, 2008. The website, located at www.toowoombaelection.com.au, allows candidates to create a profile for free and link it to their existing website if they have one.

“With eight mayors and 61 councilors being condensed to one mayor and 10 councilors, residents of the Toowoomba Regional Council need to consider their vote very carefully,” notes NGE’s Technical Manager James Deck. “Hopefully this website can assist each resident in choosing the best people to represent him or her.”
