MRS Training and Rescue
About MRS Training and Rescue
MRS have existed previously as Mines Rescue Service for over 100 years, traditionally based at the UK's numerous deep coal mines and providing highly-specialised confined space training and rescue services to the mining and similar industries.
However, in more recent years as the UK's coal mines continued to decline, the business evolved its services to provide for a much wider audience and now deliver a large range of different safety-related courses at their various centres around the UK.
They also still provide emergency rescue services around the UK as well as hiring and selling safety and training equipment.
Our work with MRS Training and Rescue
Adaptive originally worked with MRS between 2011 and 2013, before a restructuring of their business meant that the management of their website had to be transferred to another company at the time.
However, when an email came in from MRS towards the end of 2015 to say they were looking to work with a new provider for their upcoming website, we met with the team and were delighted to be awarded the contract for their website development.
A key aim of the new website was to not only reflect MRS' brand new name, identity and branding, but to also reinforce their core offering as a provider of high-quality health & safety training courses. To that end, focus was placed on promoting training heavily throughout the website, including the creation of an easy-to-use Course Finder tool to help customers easily find the right courses in the right locations for them.
The site integrates with the business' main training management system, accessplanit, pulling in all relevant course data from the system on a regular import and also integrating the system's course booking system into the website. Additional features of the site include a fully-responsive and mobile-friendly layout and attractive menu navigation to fully showcase the range of MRS' services at a glance.
We have been delighted with our new website and the support and advice Adaptive provided, which we continue to receive. From the initial meeting through to launch, Adaptive have been a pleasure to deal with and provided professional, expert advice, always available to talk to if needed.
The project was delivered on time and in budget and we are now building upon this success, developing a long term partnership to grow and develop our online strategy.
