TerminalFour achieves 75th international deal

18 May 2011

Dublin-based web content software company TerminalFour has won a €115,000 contract to provide a content management system to Manchester Metropolitan University. This marks the company’s 75th higher education client worldwide.

Manchester Metropolitan University is one of the UK’s most popular universities with more than 52,000 student applications for undergraduate courses starting in 2011.

Spread across seven campus locations in Manchester and Cheshire, it offers 1,000 courses to more than 36,000 students.

To cater to the increasing online demands of 4,300 staff and current and prospective students, it decided to review and overhaul its portfolio of websites and entire online architecture.

TerminalFour Site Manager will be used to support the development and maintenance of over 100 websites and replace a number of disparate content management systems currently used in the university.

This will remove the complexities of website publishing and limit operational and administrative bottlenecks.
