Cancer Central

Cancer Central is a charity that was set up by a cancer survivor in January 2018. Their mission is to help everyone affected by cancer, in providing an online service that enables them to easily find all the local relevant information they require; from support centres, to services, to custom products all offered by public, private and non-for-profit sectors.

InfoFINIUM was chosen as the key platform, as it provided the greatest flexibility and scalability required to complete phase one of this project; an application with underlying database and web based portal enabling both companies offering support, services and products to easily upload their details on this platform, as well as end users having the ability to find this information and make dedications.
