Following on from PageSuite’s successful launch of a new app and ePaper for The Fiji Times, they called upon us to develop a brand-new website for the Fijian news brand.
As the leading news site in Fiji, they were looking to upgrade their existing website, which was previously launched in 2004, with a brand new responsive site which could meet the demands of their readers…and we were happy to get involved!
Hank Arts, General Manager at The Fiji Times said; “From January 2017 till now the team at The Fiji Times have been evaluating the best sites from around the world. We then searched for a suitable partner that could assist us in achieving the standard of website we were looking for. We contracted PageSuite to provide our development, incorporating the best of those sites we evaluated”.
Following discussions with The Fiji Times, PageSuite collaborated with SixPorts to undertake the website project. Development commenced in November 2017 and the site was launched just 6 months later in April 2018. The site is fully responsive and provides The Fiji Times with complete control over their content and media. The website content is currently free to view, however The Fiji Times have the ability to switch on the metered paywall through the CMS controls.

Working from the other side of the world, the team at the Fiji Times has been impressed with the attention, service, knowledge and quality of the development team. Very impressive indeed and we are delighted with the outcome, says General Manager Hank Arts.
