Director and Chief Financial Officer

Philip Martins

“The team at the Mainstay have been a massive support to the Live for Lily Foundation, in the design and roll out of our new website, the implementation of an improved E-mail server, and general all round assistance of all our information technology needs.  Mainstay Digital is extremely responsive to our requests and their service is second to none in ensuring our requirements are met and the performance of our site is optimal and secure.”

“Matt and the team at Mainstay have provided us with fantastic support and guidance through various changes within our business. They are always responsive, warm and easy to deal with. And they are expert at explaining everything in layman’s terms, which is a major plus for those of us that are less tech savvy. We are proudly loyal customers of Mainstay Digital and would highly recommend their services to anyone.”

Recent work

Care Connect

Care Connect’s audience has a diverse range of accessibility needs. In addition to the regular management and support we provide them, we undertook a project to move the website towards AA WCAG (accessibility) standards. This involved a deep audit, strategic approach to challenges, and testing via a range of automated, manual and real user experience.

Great Southern Press

GS Press publishes a range of highly circulated trade publications, and enjoys very strong readership both online and print; coupled with their regular conferences and events.

In spite of an ageing (but still robust) platform, we have undertaken dozens of technical challenges to improve, evolve and streamline functionality and user experience across GS Press’s multiple brands. 

Enel X

Multinational energy innovators EnelX are newcomers to the Australian market, and needed a boost to their web presence. Working with their global platform and Italy-based team, we implemented new structural site changes, functionality and content to represent the company in the local market. 


Startup company – and leaders in automated patching software – Kinobi needed a robust website to showcase their product, capture leads and transact. The result was a custom registration/product showcase/ paid subscription solution built with WordPress, Woocommerce and Woo Subscriptions. 


Road Trauma Support Service’s legacy website meant the organisation was at an impasse for improving their user’s online experience.

We replicated, refactored and evolved the old functionality and website to  provide RTSSV with a robust, cleanly-implemented website to help them provide their critical services and evolve the organisation well into the future.
