Services Provided

Rocktime developed a web based Best Practice Database for the CRC that holds information on thousands of projects that rural communities in this country and abroad have undertaken to improve their quality of life. There is also information on publications, policy approaches and links to other organisations that promote best practice.

The Logic CMS provides an intuitive web based interface that enables administrators to manage all areas of the extranet and through their tasked responsibilities only have access to certain areas. In addition to expand the extranet as and when required by creating 'sub-sites' dealing with particular project areas.


The Vital Villages project is regularly used as an example of ‘Best Practice’. Rocktime have built a successful relationship with the CRC / Countryside Agency over six years and three major projects.

Rocktime have provided an extranet that offers The Commission Communities a suite of online tools that give users the opportunity to participate in their work, have their say and to influence the outcomes. It also allows the Commission to raise its profile and to influence others. In addition the site allows for specific groups of experts within particular areas to access information 'by invitation only'.
