TerminalFour announces CSO deployment
Software to make state information easier to log, access
TechTrade | 11 Jan 2012 :
TerminalFour has announced a deal that will see its Web content management System (WCMS) rolled out at the the Central Statistics Office (CSO). The software will be the underlying Web infrastructure for the CSO's website which currently receives 2.5 million visits a year.
The CSO is responsible for compiling Irish official statistics including national accounts, economic indicators, population and labour market information, crime, births, deaths and marriages and many other statistics. The website is the primary vehicle for disseminating this information and has experienced a 15-20% annual increase in content for the last six years.
TerminalFour is providing the CSO with its flagship WCMS: TerminalFour Site Manager. It will enable the CSO to devolve content authorship, automate the publishing process and remove Web publishing bottlenecks by delivering an easy-to-use system that removes the need for technical staff in updating content.
David Miller, COO, TerminalFour (pictured), said: "The CSO's website faces the full glare of the media spotlight and the ever increasing online expectations of the Irish public. With such scrutiny, its decision to begin the process of a website overhaul was both proactive and smart. Apart from the operational and publishing efficiencies that the WCMS will deliver, the system will in time allow the CSO to foster greater engagement with the public through mobile and social media integration."
