Bethany College in West Virginia launched their new and improved website on May 4 with the promise of giving students "permission to dream". When Ziran Creative, the creative team from Rapidigm, got the opportunity to redesign Bethany's site they were under a tight deadline to come up with something truly inspiring. By choosing Concrete CMS (content management system) over an open source solution, they turned your average patchwork website nightmare into a dream come true. Now Bethany College students, faculty, alums, and perspectives can go to BethanyWV.edu to find up-to-date information – today and for years to come.
"For enterprise scale website management, Concrete CMS's combination of performance, ease of use and rock-solid stability make it the only choice for us and our clients. We have chalked up another significant success story thanks in large part to the professional and extremely competent folks at Concrete," says Ewan Croft, Ziran Creative Principle.
"We've all seen those college sites where each page, from the English department to Phys-Ed, has a different look and feel" says Franz Maruna, Director of Concrete. "Using Concrete, Bethany College can manage workflow for each department while still sustaining site-wide brand consistency."
In less than a month Bethany's website came together. With only an hour of Concrete training over the phone, Bethany College has been able to take control of the site. A discussion system, site-wide searching, and a flexible calendar feature help turn BethanyWV.edu into a truly useful place online.
