Augustana College had outgrown its previous CMS. It needed a solution its web services team could manage in-house that would help it communicate its message effectively to prospective students, current students, and alumni.
Founded in 1860 by Swedish settlers, Augustana College is a selective independent college of the liberal arts and sciences. Augustana offers a challenging curriculum that develops the qualities of mind, spirit, and body necessary for a rewarding life of leadership and service in a diverse and changing world.
Augustana College had outgrown its previous website platform and needed a new CMS solution that could communicate effectively with prospective students, current students, and alumni. A key consideration for success was ensuring that the CMS could be managed and extended by Augustana's web services team without relying on outside services.
After an extensive evaluation of potential solutions, Augustana selected Ingeniux CMS based on the product's pedigree in higher education, its price-performance capabilities, and its ease of adoption for both content creators and IT development staff.
For Augustana, that adoption followed a three-phase approach. Augustana initially engaged Ingeniux to implement a new website in Ingeniux CMS. This phase began with an onsite needs assessment by an Ingeniux business analyst to help define the site's information architecture, content reuse strategy and best-practices implementation strategy. The site implementation included a number of Ingeniux application modules, including News and Athletics, a module developed specifically for collegiate sport sites.
In phase two, Ingeniux delivered training programs for content editors, content contributors, and web developers. This set the stage for a successful transition to the third phase, where Augustana took control of its web development process. To support that effort, the college subscribes to Ingeniux 360, a year-round support program that provides training, site audits, and service hours to supplement in-house development efforts.
Augustana College, a liberal arts and sciences college located in Rock Island, Illinois, selected Ingeniux CMS for its content management needs. Augustana based this choice on the product's pedigree in higher education and the ease of adoption for content creators and IT development staff.
