DEPT® has teamed up with Episerver and Microsoft to offer a rapid deployment package for frontline industries who need a website, fast.

Aimed at healthcare, education, public services, social care and nonprofit organisations, the Frontline Rapid Deployment package is for organisations who need to launch new initiatives, products and information centres in light of the COVID-19 crisis.

As these organisations do invaluable work around the clock and their services are in such high demand, it has inevitably placed a strain on their digital platforms as they deal with the challenges of:

  • Unprecedented increase in digital demand
  • Need to provide new services to individuals
  • Need to respond quickly with latest information
  • Need to provide new channels for remote communication

The technical solution that Episerver has specifically developed for these industries will rapidly help them to digitally transform and operate effectively. The solution is:

  • Scalable, reliable and secure: allowing digital communication without disruption, and able to handle unexpected spikes in traffic.
  • Guaranteed support: 24/7/365 technical support and guidance, so you can focus on your essential business operations, and not be troubleshooting digital problems.
  • Built for speed: eliminating all bottlenecks to respond to changing customer demands and rapidly evolving business continuity requirements.
