Landcare in West Gippsland Membership Portal

April 19, 2022

Upon the closure of GippsLandcare in 2020, Landcare Networks in West Gippsland voted to use any of the leftover funds to develop a membership portal. This portal was intended to be an efficient way of assisting Landcare groups to overcome the time-consuming burden of managing members.

We managed a tender for the project software development and a local software designer, Olivitek Software from Dumbalk has designed the portal to suit the needs of Landcare groups in our region.

Landcare Networks stated they wanted to the portal to be easy to use, safe and secure, accessible to both groups and networks, helpful for insurance reporting and communication.

The portal was launched in February, 2022 and is available free of charge for all Landcare groups and networks in West Gippsland and is continually being updated with new features to improve its capabilities.
