With Progress® Sitefinity™ and help from Sitefinity partner Argo Ventures Digital, QAA was able to craft a website that not only delivered a more engaging user experience, but also improved accessibility and ease of use for visitors.
From the visitor perspective, the new Sitefinity-powered QAA website delivers an innovative, feature-rich digital experience. The Sitefinity platform enables QAA to embrace mobile devices with responsive design capabilities, which means visitors get a great experience regardless of whether they’re on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
From the management side, the multisite and multilingual features of Sitefinity were critical to improving ongoing development and maintenance. QAA has three websites (the main QAA site, a Scotland-focused site and an Enhancement Themes program site), all of which can now be managed easily from a single application.
Integration with third-party databases was another key win. The main QAA website taps into an external database to display information and reports about universities, colleges and other higher ed providers. Integrating this database with Sitefinity enables content items to be updated automatically, which reduces duplication of effort and increases data accuracy.
