Manaaki Ora

The Challenge

Manaaki Ora Trust approached Dubzz for assistance building a website that accurately represented their organisation and service offerings in a user centric manner. They had multiple websites across their Manaaki Ora groups; Tipu Ora and Te Utuhina and the sites were inconsistent with each other and difficult to update and manage.
The new site needed to tell the rich history of Manaaki Ora Trust, and acknowledge the people and significant milestones that have been achieved. Importantly, the website needed to be easy to use, and present information in a clear way as it will be utilised by a wide range of people at different stages of life.

Our Approach

Dubzz focused on designing a modern website centred around Manaaki Ora’s mission of seeking, growing and nurturing wellbeing. The service information is laid out in an easy to understand manner. Users are encouraged to filter the services they are interested in based on their location utilising the custom form developed for this website. Site users are easily able to identify the services that will be of most value to them, and are encouraged to submit the form with their contact information so that Manaaki Ora team members can get in touch with them to provide support. Manaaki Ora team members receive real time notifications as forms are submitted.
In addition to the custom form, Dubzz also built the site to be easy for Manaaki Ora team members to update as programmes and services develop or new job vacancies become available. Manaaki Ora View Website Here

The Results

Dubzz produced a highly functional, user-friendly website that brings all the information on services offered by Manaaki Ora into one location where users can easily filter through to find the service that best suits their needs.  The custom form encourages users to submit the information needed for Manaaki Ora team members to then get in touch and follow up each contact.  Manaaki Ora received a referral submission through the new website within 24 hours of going live.

The new website is easy to update, and reflects the Manaaki Ora’s new branding, while also proudly displaying their rich history and commitment to community wellbeing.

Going into lockdown, we identified a need for us to have a greater online presence so that we can be more accessible for service users and referrers. As we had recently rebranded, we chose to develop a new site rather than update our existing sites. We chose to work with Dubzz because Rachel and her team were recommended to us, and they certainly exceeded our expectations. While we had ideas about what we wanted the site to look like and how we wanted it to function, the team at Dubzz provided support, information and suggestions to help us choose what was best for us. We are very impressed with the entire process (especially through the challenges of lockdown) and are thrilled with our new website. We look forward to engaging with Dubzz again on future projects.
