Aussie beach guide

We have worked with Surf Life Saving for well over a decade on projects such as: SLS Carnival apps, SurfCom and Beachsafe, which is a comprehensive guide to every beach in Australia (12,000). The BeachSafe web app and API connects with several third parties, including: the BOM for weather feeds; ABSAMP DB for beach data; SurfGaurd for patrol info and live beach status conditions.

BeachSafe backend: PHP. Native apps: iOS and Android.

“Beachsafe provides detailed information for the 11994 beaches on the coast of Australia”

Client Feedback

Formally macdaddy, now KORE, have been our principal Internet Solutions Team for the last three years. During this time, they have provided a full project and delivery service to Surf Life Saving Australia including solution design, project management, website build, smartphone enhanced websites, iPhone application, site hosting, enhancements, DNS hosting and database solutions.

We are very satisfied with the full service that macdaddy provides including the cost to service ratio that has been achieved with our mutual partnership. We have found macdaddy to be responsive and innovative in the proposed solutions as well as helpful in providing value added services that we
have needed, sometimes at short notice.

In terms of the beachsafe suite of websites and iPhone applications, macdaddy have helped SLSA achieve national recognition including a 2011 Australian Safer Community awards, highly commended project for nationally significant projects.
