The site supports workflows such as an editor-publisher process and the ability to schedule content publishing & expiry. One of the advanced features we have developed include the ability to publish entire microsites for different human rights campaigns at the click-of-a-button without any technical know-how on the part of content administrators including support for customising various visual aesthetics such as colours and backgrounds.
The work being completed includes a fairly intensive automated data migration process of over 25,000 pages of existing content and countless related assets. We also developed custom modules that integrate with the commission’s in-house enterprise search system as well as enable support for Australian Government Locator Service (AGLS) metadata across the board.
The content management system supports building micro sites with their own unique look & feel on-the-fly. We also integrated the website with the commission’s enterprise level search solution Funnelback allowing visitors search through myriads of documents & resources.

The portal was deployed to captures existing procurement contracts, fact sheets, policies and general content including meta data required for search. The CMS was configured for zero redundancy document management and features an editor-publisher workflow for content management integrated with an enterprise search engine that indexes all content & resources.
Security & Identity Management
The infrastructure was setup for high availability and was tested by PureHacking to ensure that it meets government standards on security. We are currently engaged with NSW Procurement for stage 2 of the project to expand the current feature including a secure workspace for government agencies to oversee their procurement and introduce additional workflow management involving multiple user roles and content stages.
We ran the project in a completely agile manner – the entire project was broken down into sprints of 3 to 5 days where we continuously refined functional components until NSW Procurement was happy with the end product.

Access iQ™ is an initiative of Media Access Australia, Australia’s only independent not-for-profit organisation devoted to increasing access to media and technology for people with disabilities. Their vision for Access iQ™ is “a web without limits” and demonstrate that web accessibility is the hallmark of an inclusive, usable and future-proof website.
Creative & Accessibility
The site underwent accessibility testing throughout the design and development phases. Designs were reviewed for accessibility, the development team were educated on accessibility principles and the result is a website that is cool, adaptive & responsive whilst being accessible. The website also underwent accessibility user testing – user testing with people who have disabilities to ensure that accessibility also delivers maximum usability.
Workflow & E–Commerce
The site features an editor-publisher content management workflow. The site also features eCommerce with a checkout workflow process that’s tightly integrated onto the content manage system.

Creative & Search
This project involved creating a really snazzy site – extremely high secure & high performance site that works across mobiles, tablets & desktops. We integrated with enterprise grade Solr search for super-fast searching across products & accessories.
As the site has different content and product information for different regions across the globe, high performance and availability was a top criterion – at launch, we managed to optimise the site to load under 1 second!
Workflow & Data Migration
The site also supports complex workflows for importing product data across different regions – data migration including writing routines for parsing & extracting Excel data and carrying out data clean-up and integrity check-ups.

Commenting is handled via Disqus which allows users to login via Facebook, Twitter or Google and post comments. This has become one of Australia’s highest trafficked blogs with over 1.5 million hits per day!!!

Maersk Line’s online ebusiness services, known as “Do Business”, provides a seamless workflow for customers to securely reuse, search, save & overview shipping information. The primary aim was to create elearning tutorials for the main areas of the “Do Business” services and to create an introductory tutorial for the Maersk Line website.
These tutorials were to be accessile in multiple languages with the ability to switch between text and voiceover languages independently (e.g. Cantonese with simplified Chinese text).
Although Maersk Line had very strict branding guidelines including the very strict use of a set number of colours and fonts, Demonz was able to create a very strong, modern and aesthetic user interface by utilising gradients, soft shadows, floor reflections and simple highlights. Interactivity and continuity was added via colour changes, simple fades, blends and blurs to give a very professional finishing touch.
The dynamic nature of the system allows it to be deployed in multiple platforms and formats (Web/CD/DVD on Windows/Mac).
The tutorials support text and voiceover with more than 60 minutes of animations per language:
Mandarin & Cantonese Support for Traditional & Simplified Chinese scripts
