Project center Infometer

Openness Is a Good Manner

Who We Are
The Infometer project center provides consulting services on maintenance and filling of online resources.
According to the law, all government bodies (and also schools, hospitals, real estate developers, and many others) must maintain their own websites placing specific information defined by law. Their websites also must be user-friendly and meet modern IT requirements.
We work since 2008.
We know exactly what must be published on your website in accordance with law.
Since legislation is constantly changing and web technologies are developing swiftly, administrators pf government bodies' websites often need assistance. It is what the Infometer exists for.
We work since 2008. We know exactly what must be published on your website in accordance with law. We will tell you where and how to place necessary information to avoid claims from users or (what is even worse) oversight bodies. We know best practices of design for various website sections and implementation of modern online services, and we help to realize these practices.
Our Skills
Auditing websites or website groups
We develop lists of audit parameters based on legislative requirements and common sense, and show in figures what are weaknesses of a specific portal.

Audit example
We tell in easy language what must be published on a website in accordance with legislative requirements and show illustrative examples.
We answer questions asked by persons in charge of website maintenance. We also render remote support on issues of portal filling.

Remote consulting
Rating by openness
To stimulate competition and to show what websites your colleagues of the same field have, we rate groups of websites (calculate information openness rates for each webstie and compare them within a group). This motivates people to improve their websites.
