Cheyney University

Cheyney, Pennsylvania


One of the nation's oldest colleges embraces the power and value of Web 2.0 technologies and 'Software as a Service' in managing its web site

Saddled with older web technology, Cheyney University, the nation's oldest African-American university, embarked on a six-month search process to update its web site. Like many institutions seeking to get the most value and flexibility out of such long-term investments, the school examined CMS vendors and created a decision matrix based on ease of use, price, features and customer service. Looking for more than just a design for the site, the search team looked into overhauling the whole process. Without a great deal of in-house IT infrastructure and web development capabilities, the team decided on Campusuite Hosted Edition.

Users across all departments are able to easily manage news, events, blogs, photos, videos, calendars, FAQs and more. SaaS allows the school to take advantage of the efficiencies created by Web 2.0 and "cloud computing" and not be encumbered by on-premise solutions. Enhancements and updates are made on a continual basis and rolled out to all Campusuite customers system wide. What's more, the user-generated feedback afforded through this model enables continuous improvement. With Campusuite CMS – and the built-in improvements and value made possible by the hosted, SaaS feature – Cheyney University users are keeping not only their content, but their tools, fresh and valuable as ever.
