Sebenza Systems are proud to have produced an online media resource centre for UK charity, Plan UK.

The resource centre contains a range of videos, audios, photographs and fact-files tackling development issues from a variety of angles. The intended target audience, for the publicly accessible site, are school teachers around the world. And we've created a search engine to locate the media that they are interested in.

Sebenza Systems developed an online administration system for a large part of the project. The system allows Plan UK staff to upload different types of media and indicate categories and keywords. Plan UK asked Sebenza Systems if the administration functionality could handle multiple administrators working on one set of media at once. As well as automatically creating thumbnails and lower resolution versions of high resolution files.

As Sebenza Systems specialises in web based business information systems, we thrived on this project that was delivered on time, on budget and with a smile. The resource centre was part of a bigger project produced by one of our affiliates, I Am Human, a web design and multimedia production company.

I Am Human produced the Plan Ed website graphic design, site architecture and HTML templates into which the resource centre is plugged in. I Am Human and Sebenza Systems are key members of a small business network called Curtain Road.Net based in Shoreditch, London, EC2A.

About Sebenza Systems

Sebenza Systems, named after the Zulu translation of "work", delivers information strategies that change the way that people operate.

Of course we do websites and increasingly our clients ask for more than simply a presence on the web. We are being approached by businesses seeking a strategy that develops interactions between them and their customers, business partners or staff members.

Our interfaces provide the structures needed to realise a modern approach to work and information flow. Sometimes this is a site that can be updated by the companies' staff or perhaps ordering mechanisms that the staff of a supplier or customer can work with.
