Department of Industry

The Department of Industry is a government department, with the aim of fostering and facilitating economic growth in industries in which Australia is globally competitive. Along with many other documents, one with great importance is the Industry Monitor Report, which is an annual publication presenting data about Australia’s most competitive industries and how they crucial they are to Australia’s future growth.

Project Overview

The Department of Industry needed a digitalised version of their annual Industry Monitor Report that allowed users to easily understand and navigate through the data sets they are most interested in. The report is a hefty 51 pages long, so EB Pearls was posed with the challenge of condensing this content to a responsive web form, without losing its comprehensiveness.

The greatest challenge of this project was thinking about how to transfer such a huge pool of data into the digital form, so as to not lose the comprehensiveness of the original document, whilst still maintaining a manageable online user experience.

This project also had to cater for various users. First and foremost, this data was to be available to the public, which meant that the user interface had to be intuitive and visually appealing. Additionally, the data in this report would have to be used extensively for presentational purposes. As a result, a method for exporting the data had to be devised.

Content hierarchy: To organise such a large collection of data, EB Pearls devised a hierarchy for the data and information. This means users could logically and conveniently navigate the website for the information that they needed.

HighCharts: To create an enjoyable user experience, EB Pearls used HighCharts, the javascript API, to present the data. This allowed the website to be highly interactive and incredibly easy to use.

Stunning UX/UI Design: As part of visual appeal, EB Pearls created a way to present the data in such a way that was professional, whilst still maintaining an interesting and dynamic look.

Exporting for Presentations: Data could be very easily exported from the report for use in presentational settings, such as, businesses, governments and schools.

Unmatched optimisation: On the development side, EB Pearls was able to create a product of the highest of quality. Using the best practices, Austrade’s web application was written with highly optimised code and speed optimisation, ensuring the large amounts of data does not impede on user experience.
