Newport, KY – As part of its growing commitment to serving colleges and universities, Campusuite was a sponsor at HighEdWeb 2011 held in Austin, Texas. Campusuite web content management system designed specifically for schools and higher education featuring simple, browser-based tools to control web site content, Campusuite features a wide range of new and improved functionality in three major areas: extended tools and social networking features, application security and enhanced usability.
"This product evolution ensures that our clients are positioned to accommodate the upcoming trends and allow faculty and staff to keep up with an increasingly web-savvy audience," said Steve Williams, Campusuite's co-founder. "Mindful of the emerging prevalence of cloud technologies and SaaS, we're continuously engineering in ease and access for content administrators, publishers and end-users."
The timing of the new launch coincides nicely with this gathering of key web site decision makers at the college and university level. "This is a very savvy group of web administrators who come together at this important conference to gather the tools and share ideas that make them better administrators," said Williams. "The HighEdWeb members are knowledgeable and thirsty for more knowledge, so we're happy to be returning to share with them our latest."
Already implemented at select colleges and universities, Campusuite software enables web site administrators to keep fresh such frequently updated information as news, blogs, events, calendars, photos, faculty and staff directories, videos and FAQs. Ready-made, easy-to-use content modules plug into existing web site designs, eliminating the mystery and technical prerequisites for keeping web content current.
Campusuite simplifies the growingly unwieldy process of overall web site management by providing simple web-based tools to content authors, publishers and administrators, who can easily create, share and publish content in a decentralized workflow environment. Employees closest to the content are afforded greater control of the content with permission-authorized access.
"What makes Campusuite different from other off-the-shelf CMS products is that we've created easy-to-use modules that address the specific needs of college web administrators," said Jay Cooper, Marketing Director at Innersync. "Many of the larger, more horizontal CMS packages have functionality and data fields that a school or college would never use."
A practical solution for many departments within a college or university where content is constantly changing – admissions, student activities, sports information, alumni affairs, faculty and staff – Campusuite enables content authors to easily create and edit their respective pages of their web site.
"A school's web site is becoming increasingly important to many facets of their operations," said Cooper. "Recruiting, athletics, development – it's their primary public face. Campusuite gives them tools to make their sites more effective, easily. We've found a great deal of interest on the part of many administrators at this conference," added Cooper. "They are hungry for web content solutions that not only improve their whole process, but are easy to implement, as well.
