The College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University in St. Joseph, Minnesota, now have a website that is much more easily administered, thanks to the comprehensive new content management system (CMS) designed and implemented by web development experts at Quinn Interactive. This new CMS application was a crucial element of the schools' thorough redesign of their website. The new site gives viewers immediate access to a wealth of information about academics, faculty, athletics, and campus culture and events at these two schools with total enrollment of almost 4,000 students.
The site's new CMS tools maximize functionality for site administrators and users. To ensure the CMS implementation was done as skillfully and efficiently as possible, the university brought in Quinn Interactive and Atomz Corporation to work on the project with university web designers and developers. In addition to their CMS work, Quinn Interactive provided design consulting, technical support and expert assistance during all phases of the endeavor.
Using the industry-leading CMS tools, Atomz Publish and Atomz Search, the Quinn Interactive team created CMS templates for all page types common to the new site. The templates, and the CMS tools through which they work, will allow site administrators to add news stories, press releases, class descriptions, faculty listings and many other regular features quickly and easily. The result is a dynamic website that can be kept immediately up to date with a minimum of effort.
Once the new site and CMS system had been developed the QI team turned its attention to migrating information from over ten thousand pages, with many different site characteristics and page designs, from the old Saint Benedict's website. QI developed customized scraping and data gathering tools to help gather information from the sites thousands of legacy pages, convert the data into a manageable format and import it, through Atomz, into the new site templates.
The result a fully functional website, with every page presented in an attractive, unified design. And to help assure the continued success of the site and its new CMS system, QI provided detailed training for university web administrators, teaching them how to create and manage templates and to use their new CMS tools to their maximum potential.
