Website Development

Following an extended period of consulting to VSBEC, working closely with the internal team and gaining a deep understanding of their requirements, We were engaged for the design, development and migration of the main VSBEC website onto the WordPress platform. The V.S.B.Engineering College (VSBEC) is one of the Top Engineering Colleges in Tamil Nadu with a history of more than 20 years.

Their institute engages in promoting, managing and administrating with high academic standards, discipline and to take up and help other allied activities in the field of education.

Challenge

With the desire to market themselves in a more interactive way through their website, VSBEC made the decision to move across to the WordPress CMS for increased content management functionality and for the option of more flexible, accessible and responsive ways of displaying content. As their existing site contained a substantial amount of high value content in the form of the department profiles, research publications was extensive and would call for a significant overhaul to the information architecture. This would result in improved content discoverability across all subsites and subsequently make it easier for users to discover the depth of the material available to them.

Solution

In developing the solution, We built a distribution for VSBEC – a pre-configured version of WordPress that is able to be used across their network of sites, is easily reconfigured to allow for customisations and boasts rich search capability across all sub-sites. We helped the VSBEC team in becoming self-sufficient in terms of managing their sites, working closely alongside their internal team to assist them in becoming much more educated about WordPress, becoming efficient in the use of the distribution, and also with the ongoing management, maintenance and hosting of their numerous sites. They now have have a collection of integrated, content-managed websites that are the central hub for sharing and transferring knowledge generated by the Institute.

The Results

Hosted internally, the new VSBEC website was successfully launched in mid 2019, the new website has seen a massive growth in user visit count.
