In-house IT team supported through the build and launch of their site on a flexible CMS.
Okanagan College is a public post-secondary educational institution in British Columbia, Canada. They provide a wide range of academic, vocational, trades, apprenticeship, continuing education programs and courses. Their website provides recruits, students, faculty, staff and their community with online applications, program information, scheduling and class material, as well as providing an event calendar, emergency alerts and controls digital signage.
With lofty goals and high demand for a platform upgrade, Okanagan College’s development and front-end marketing team were frustrated with their current inflexible tool. It required extensive hours of IT time in order to align with business operations and the desire for a vastly improved experience for everyone that had to interact with it.
Independently designing a new architecture on a completely new CMS is a daunting task for many companies to take on, even with an experienced in-house team of developers. As they dove into the project, Okanagan College recognized that there was an expertise gap within their organization. This sparked the conversation with our team to assist with the architectural design, educational learnings and build of their new site.
