Cranfield University benefit from a fully integrated and cost effective CMS

Having worked initially with Cranfield University to support their Percussion Rhythmyx implementation, including the implementation of a new website design and site search function, we recently assisted in the migration to Sitecore v8. 

Using our understanding of the Percussion CMS database and how to import content into Sitecore, we created a custom content export/import tool which significantly reduced the manual effort normally associated with this part of a CMS migration project. 

At the same time, we identified features within Sitecore which could be used to make the content editing and publishing process more straightforward than was possible on Rhythmyx.  

The site has recently been re-designed and launched in line with the new branding and we're confident that the team at Cranfield will start to make full use of all of the functionality that Sitecore has to offer.

Alongside the main University website, we also designed and delivered new websites on the Umbraco platform for Cranfield Airport and the Cranfield conference and events team.  

Since the redesigned website went live, the main Cranfield University website has seen visitor numbers increase and now offers and improved customer experience. The branding is consistent, visitors no longer get lost and they can now see our full offer. Unified Solutions provided us with a cost effective solution to enhance our existing environment and meet our business objectives.
