Catholic Care

Repositioning Catholic Care's digital offering into a more customer-centric experience

CatholicCare needed to rework its site in consideration of its unique audience, new industry rules and increased competition. 

NetReturn Consulting mapped client profiles and user journeys, aligning their strategy to the future growth of the organisation. The result? A UX informed site with a fresh look and feel; streamlined navigation and enhanced search and map functionality; and a tailored content management system, empowering CatholicCare with greater control over their online content.

Auditing PokitPal's online systems so they could focus on what they do best

Amidst a growing network of universities, students, and advertisers, PokitPal needed to bolster and expand their online capabilities. But how could they propel growth and sustain their leading market position whilst upholding seamless service and support?

Following a strategic review, NetReturn conducted a meticulous audit of their production system. To optimise performance, robust procedures for application management and error control were established.

The ensuing development phase yielded a comprehensive, technology-agnostic solution, meticulously tailored to the new university year within deadline and budget.


As the leading market player, PokitPal now delivers an elevated customer and advertiser experience, empowering them to concentrate on propelling business expansion.

The Association of South East Asian Nations

ASEAN were in need of an optimised portal to facilitate registration, record keeping, student training and certification, whilst connecting students with industry jobs across all ten states.

Through comprehensive stakeholder management and analysis, NetReturn developed a job matching portal between the industry and qualified ASEAN Tourism Professionals.


This paved the way for tourism professionals, who could now access intra-regional opportunities and greater professional pathways, whilst boosting the industry with an increased cadre of quality, trained staff. Tourism schools also benefited through higher graduate employment rates of qualified, accredited tourism professionals. Finally, ASEAN were able to boost their revenue through charging the industry for this optimised service.

Wyong Shire Council

Continually developing the Council's online presence via evolving content, strategy and branding

Wyong Shire Council sought to revive their online presence through upgraded informational architecture and design, as well as continual maintenance and support to a fixed budget.

By keeping the content fresh and relevant to the audience and encouraging users to interact with the site, NetReturn increased site visitors by 110% in six months.

But the process didn't end there. NetReturn tailored their support service so Wyong Shire Council could concentrate on their operations with the confidence that their online investment would continue to grow.

Enhancing Lonely Planet's platform capabilities, customer experience and competitive position. 

CareerOne were facing a drop off in candidate usage given their limited online functionality and this risked their market position and revenue stream from advertisers.

NetReturn integrated a Java-based CMS system with an Adicio job search engine, ensuring only highly relevant content is provided to searching candidates. Alongside this, a modernised corporate portal was developed to provide a central point for internal information, enabling staff to work from multiple devices and locations concurrently. Alongside this, NetReturn delivered a refreshed website redesign to reflect CareerOne's corporate identity and optimise customer experiences through enhanced functionality, superior to competitiors' offerings.
