A great CMS isn't just about the software. It's about the experience. From implementation and content migration, to award-winning support and professional services, we're here for you every step of the way.
Unlike other web content management system (CMS) providers, all our OU Campus™ implementations are done in-house. OU Campus can be implemented with your website just as it exists today or in conjunction with a redesign. If you are embarking on a redesign, we'll work closely with your design firm of choice or you can choose a design theme from our OU Design Library to get up and running quickly. Below is an overview of the implementation process.
Discovery & Planning
During discovery and planning, we work closely with you on the functional and technical requirements and set expectations of your implementation.
During development, we configure OU Campus, establish a staging environment, and create your custom templates.
Our team vigorously tests your templates to ensure they meet all specification requirements, W3C standards, and accessibility compliance.
Once quality assurance is complete and all requirements are met, your customized implementation of OU Campus is ready for you to use.
We know migrating content from one CMS to another can be a big undertaking. Let us take that burden off your plate. We've helped hundreds of institutions just like yours migrate their content quickly and easily. Migration involves targeting your website's metadata and content and then programmatically or systematically moving it into a new data structure. This can be done in various ways. Every situation is unique, so we'll help you pick the migration strategy that's best for you.
During an automated migration, we use a program to read, convert, and tag your exported content for a one-to-one shift into OU Campus.
During a partially automated migration, we move your content into OU Campus, and from there, you can organize it how you see fit.
A manual migration involves cutting and pasting content from your old CMS to OU Campus, page by page. This option gives you flexibility and a great opportunity to refresh old, stale content.
We are the experts when it comes to CMS software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment in higher ed. With more SaaS customers than any other higher ed CMS provider, our users love the reliable uptime and instant updates that SaaS provides. It's what we recommend to give you optimal performance. Of course, if self-hosting OU Campus is a requirement, we offer that too.
When deployed as a SaaS solution, we handle the installation, updates, and maintenance of OU Campus, ensuring optimal performance and uptime. And don't worry about the server hardware and infrastructure; we take care of that, too. A SaaS deployment gives you the most benefits and lets you shift your focus to projects that matter the most to you.
With our Self-Hosted option, we support you with the installation and updates of OU Campus. You retain control of the hardware, operating systems, servers, and networking.
For a CMS to be successful, user buy-in is of the utmost importance. We get it. We offer the most comprehensive training you'll find for your end users, administrators, and web developers, and we provide on-going training opportunities such as our annual user training conference, learning management system, and monthly Training Tuesdays.
We set you up for long-term success through personalized webinar training for your CMS admins, end-user trainers, and web developers.
