Web CM rollout at UWM
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will expand its use of Web content management software from PaperThin, allowing its entire system of 13 universities to take advantage of the solution.
The university will provide access to PaperThin's flagship product, CommonSpot, to more than 28,000 students and to 3,500 faculty and staff who will be able to manage the content they have created--without the need to write HTML or to seek frequent IT support.
According to PaperThin, CommonSpot provides flexible content management capabilities, including campuswide workflow and collaboration features. With the system, users can control their online initiatives and focus their efforts on interacting more with site visitors; build communities of interest among students, faculty and alumni; implement brand standards across the institution; and quickly edit and publish content to attract new recruits and funding, and to achieve better business results, the company recently reported.
Michael Hostad, Web architect at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, says, "We completed a major site redesign in about three weeks, which went live with great success. That solid performance resulted in our decision to move to an unlimited license and to roll out CommonSpot universitywide."
