ICT and Technology
Rose Regeneration has considerable experience of providing businesses, community groups and local authorities with a full range of services and support to assist them in making their ICT project happen.
Examples of recent projects include:
The Village Hub – Community Access and Information Points
West Devon Borough Council
Rose Regeneration quantified the costs and benefits of using ICT to deliver public services in small villages, particularly with poor broadband accessibility, across West Devon, Torridge and South Hams District Council areas. In addition to a Final Report, the project produced a ‘Toolkit’ providing practical guidance for local authorities, citizens and service providers on how to use ICT to deliver services.
Delivering ICT advice to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
Advised SME’s on their ICT requirements, how to select suppliers and buy, install and maintain hardware and software. The project also involved assessing funding applications for Business Link to ensure that they provided value for money.
Completed projects include:
Producing a set of case studies on successful E Business implementation for a new Business Link intranet.
Developing a website to encourage rural residents in Yorkshire to identify transport connections and make smarter and more sustainable travel choices.
Implementing ADSL and SDSL systems across a network of car parks to provide central control for off-peak hours.
