Irish web tech firm in CMS deal with UMass Dartmouth

26 Apr 2011

One of Massachusetts’ leading colleges, UMass Dartmouth, is to deploy technology developed by Irish company TerminalFour to manage its web system, which is used by 400 staff, 10,000 students and 40,000 alumni.

The company’s web content management solution is supporting more than 100 University of Massachusetts Dartmouth websites as it targets growth in undergraduate and graduate student numbers.

TerminalFour Site Manager, a web content management solution, has been rolled out across more than 100 sites initially and this process is continuing.

The newly developed website is now the primary point of contact between UMass Dartmouth and the millions of prospective American students that enter the third-level education market every year. 

“Our colleges, departments and centres are now able to be self-sufficient in keeping the website up to date rather than relying on our team,” explained UMass Dartmouth webmaster Donald King. “We can now spend our time and energy on creating and maintaining the most critical and high-profile areas of the site.

“With the publishing restrictions of the previous site removed we are finding that the information on the website is continuously updating and is now much more relevant for all our audiences,” King added.
