Netwise worked very well with us to achieve our new website and new Parish Councillor emails, all of which is now compliant with Data Protection and Accessibility requirements. They have a good understanding of Council requirements and we would be happy to recommend them to other Parish Councils.
Martley Parish Council,
I first used Netwise a couple of years ago for a new Parish Council website and found them brilliant with a really attractive website. I have recently used them again to transfer another website to them. The latest involved an array of problems with the transfer due to the previous hosts, but Steve and Adam of Netwise took everything in their stride and solved the issues for us even though they could have easily said nothing to do with us. The Network site itself is so easy to use, and I am speaking as a complete technophobe - we have received so many compliments from residents on the new look website. I cannot recommend Netwise enough as a website provider.
Our previous website host gave us one months notice of withdrawing support for our website. In any case it was not compliant with the accessibility regs and we did not have parish council email addresses. We chose "parish council websites" (NetWiseUK) from 8 website providers, three specialising in parish councils. We were up and running with a live website in just over three weeks thanks to to the extraordinary support from Adam and Steve. I am clerk to two parish councils and will be recommending my other Parish Council makes the same choice. I will happily recommend the company to any Parish or Town Council seeking real value for money and an excellent website of the highest quality.
We are one village with two parish councils. a new website would combine the generic information for all the area of the village, but keep the Parish Council business separate as require by law. This was difficult to ensure that all aspects were covered . We wanted the website to be a notice board for all activities within the villages Nether and Upper Poppleton, yet still retain the individual differences. Thanks to the help and support of Netwise and their excellent videos we manage to achieve this even during lockdown. Many many thanks
The excellent support and service provided by Netwise has enabled us to set up a new website which we urgently needed. The tutorials are great and easy to understand and give you that confidence to create the website you want.
It is such an easy website to upload information and is very user friendly. The service and support has been fantastic. I will definitely recommend Netwise.
We had a previous website, but this was not fully compliant with the transparency code for smaller authorities, and the provider charge for every document we wanted to upload.
We chose Netwise as they offered a fully compliant website service, and the ability for us to upload everything at a reasonable set-up and annual cost.
Their training videos are so straightforward and easy to follow (included in the cost of the set-up fee), and after a month, we now have a fully compliant website.
When we had a few questions, Adam answered within minutes, even on a Sunday! I could not believe it! They have also helped us close down the old site, and are there if we need any advice, although for the normal updating of the website, it is so easy, it only takes a few minutes for adding new documents (agendas and minutes etc), and also news and notices etc.
I have to say I am delighted by the service. It is far better than I expected, and the software is so easy to use. If you have any doubt, please check out the various Parish and Town websites using Netwise software.
I would thoroughly recommend using Netwise for your town or parish council website. The CMS is simple and straightforward. It makes updating, maintaining and changing the site easy and quick. Adam and Steve respond quickly to any enquiries and help out if there are any issues.
A point was raised by a local resident at a recent Parish Council meeting that the information contained on our previous website was both out of date and inconsistent depending on which operating system you were accessing from. We took on the task of updating the site and looked at lots of self-build options. Then we found this system. Everything we needed was already set out in a reliable and manageable system. The WordPress structure means we can edit and juggle pages as we need to and the system takes very little knowledge to manage. Where we did need tuition and guidance the NetWise people were incredibly helpful, fast to respond and extremely patient! The price is fair and the service is fabulous, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Without this system I would still be fiddling around, trying to author a site badly.
My official website has made life so much easier for me. A the sole employee of the parish council it means i can work smarter and almost paperless and I can also push information out quickly. The best thing is the flexibility it gives me allows me to do my work wherever there is wifi.
I've had a couple of issues but Adam has always been quick to get me up and running.
