Chichester College and Cubeworks have recently launched a new website to market the institution and all its courses.
Cubeworks was asked to come up with a website that not only reflected the brand but could also manage the enormous amount of data and content required to promote its courses and enable online student enrolment. By overhauling the old site and introducing online booking and payment the College reports to already be inundated with new enquiries since the new site went live.
The new website is based on the EPiServer CMS platform which means the College has total control of the site content, so its team of editors can easily update it at any time. This is vital with Chichester College running almost 700 courses in a broad range of subjects. The technical team at Cubeworks fully integrated the College's systems, so for the first time there was one centralised course database, creating a much more efficient system for providing course information and handling online applications.
The site also needed to be easy to navigate and appeal to distinct student groups, such as 14-19 year olds, mature students and international students. Cubeworks successfully bid for the website redesign following its development of a specification and ITT for the College.
Commenting on the new website, Simon Booth, Client Services Director at Cubeworks, said: “With educational institutions competing for students a strong digital marketing strategy is as important as it as for any business. By integrating the existing databases and using the EPiServer CMS we know the website has a solid platform for us to deliver a long term digital strategy.”
Sarah Stannard, Vice Principal at Chichester College, added: “Cubeworks demonstrated EPiServer CMS to us and we were particularly impressed by its ability to manage permissions and workflows, which is important to us as we have many editors, and also the ease with which it can be integrated with our other systems. We’re confident that we have created a site that will enthuse potential students, future staff, business customers and community stakeholders.”
