The response rate to a major new web-based database for Gippsland has been remarkable, even before the site is officially launched.
Gippsland.com, at the address www.Gippsland.com is the site being developed as the first stage of a regional web portal.
"For the first time, there will be a comprehensive database of Gippsland businesses that local people can access easily," said the site developer, Tony Svasek from Messenger Media and Technology Pty Ltd.
"We have just developed the site, www.Gippsland.com and started to seek participants and we have been absolutely rapt with the response.
"The site is officially launched in December, but already we have over 50 businesses registered and over 100 orders to process. We are well on the way to our aim of 2000 businesses on-line at this site by the end of the year."
Listing on the site has been deliberately kept at an inexpensive level, with initial set-up only $9.90 setup and registration only $9.90 per annum.
Gippsland.com is supported by Baw Baw Shire, Wellington Shire, East Gippsland Shire, Latrobe City and Gippsland Development Limited. One of the major aims in developing the site is to support local businesses by encouraging others to think local when seeking goods and services.
"A problem in Gippsland in the past is that there has been no single on-line public data-base that provides a comprehensive listing of all Gippsland businesses and details of what they do," Mr Svasek said.
"By the time www.Gippsland.com is fully up and running, that will have changed."
As well as listing contact details and services, the site will also be linked to business, government and community web sites.
"In the past we know that people have often gone outside the region to access goods and services. Often this was the case because, in an area the size of Gippsland, it is hard to know what services are provided within the region or even in the next town," Mr Svasek said.
"Now, through www.Gippsland.com people will have a single point of reference that they can easily access to provide them with all that information."
Further information about registering with Gippsland.com can be found on the site, at address www.Gippsland.com or by contacting Messenger on 5122 1536.
