Challenges

“User-friendly,” “interactive,” “modern,” and “easy to edit” were not words that came to mind when Murray State College thought about their website and content management system. Their site was outdated, had inadequate templates and was difficult to update. They needed a website that could be their primary marketing tool as well as a lasting first impression for potential students.

Solutions

Keeping in mind that this site would be the primary marketing tool for Murray State College, laying out a solid framework for the website design was an important first step for this project. After assessing all of the content and graphic needs for the site, our designers went to work to provide a mobile responsive design that included areas for marketing messages, news, calendars, and social media. Much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle, getting all of the components of the design to fit together nicely is a delicate process that our seasoned designers handle with ease.

Bringing the design to life, inPower CMS™ was then installed on the site to give administrative users the ability to update page content, home page banner graphics, news articles and much more within a few clicks of the mouse! With varying levels of administrator access and custom design page templates to protect the style of each page, Murray State College can feel good about sharing rights with faculty and staff to keep content fresh.
