North Carolina Broadband works with service providers and communities to increase broadband adoption in unserved and underserved areas. The agency needed to provide easy access to broadband resources for North Carolina citizens. In addition, NC Broadband personnel needed and easy to use content management system (CMS) that could also be extended to include custom data collection forms.
Topsail developed the NC Broadband public website as well as several internal data management tools that aggregate data from service providers, federal, and state agencies. Using the open source Refinery CMS that is built upon Ruby on Rails, Topsail engineers were able to build custom engines to provide specific data forms and analysis views.
A clean looking and intuitive website that affords access to the various resources and aggregated broadband access data. An easy to use CMS and data management tools that are custom fit for the needs of NC Broadband.
