Gas Networks Ireland

Gas Networks Ireland ensures that over 640,000 Irish homes and businesses receive a safe, efficient and secure supply of natural gas, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Gas Networks teamed up with i3 Digital in 2011 to supply the technical development, hosting, and ongoing support and maintenance of the organisation’s website.

Activity

In order to support Ireland’s largest utility provider’s online efforts, i3 Digital delivered a secure and highly flexible CMS driven website – bordgaisnetworks.ie. In keeping with the scope of the project, Bord Gáis Networks needed a more dynamic, accessible, customer-focused website that would drive operational efficiencies and allow for the secure submitting of meter readings online. A client extranet was also required for authorised users to access a range of information and provide feedback and support requests.

An interactive network map was also incorporated in this phase of work, as was a dynamic, customised reporting tool for the CMS. i3 Digital also worked alongside Bord Gáis Networks to determine and implement user permissions within the CMS.Overall, the CMS was the main integral component within this Bord Gáis project.

What We Delivered

A highly secure hosting environment was set-up by i3 Digital, and penetration testing was also carried out. SSL encryption facilities were integrated throughout the website, and full performance, system testing and client training with detailed documentation were provided to all content editors on the website CMS desk.

i3 Digital continues to work closely with Bord Gáis Networks to make continuous updates to the website and associated applications. Pending launches include the development of several responsive sub-sites with the main website and development of custom applications. In July 2014, i3 Digital won the contract to redesign and develop the brand new Bord Gáis Networks website in line with organisational strategy.
