After an extensive review process which consisted of analysing how well each vendor could potentially meet their technical, service, and design requirements; Ascham School selected Elcom for its ability to:
- cater for publishers from different departments, with varying technical expertise.
- support different digital requirements from a functionality and interoperability point-of-view.
- scale and customise the platform to their requirements.
Elcom, along with brand consultancy and design partners, Scribble & Think, worked with an Ascham School's project manager to deliver the new website. Its purpose is to provide enriched content and an enhanced user experience.
Prior experience using elcomCMS for our website and knowing that Elcom would pull out all stops to assist us with the implementation and custom development were key factors. The Hub was co-created by design agency, Scribble and Think, Elcom and our own development team. One of the areas Elcom proved most valuable was the integration with the Synergetic platform, enabling us to pull and make visible data to quickly check absences, parent permissions, medical and other critical information. Seamless access to 3rd party solutions and our helpdesk system, which enables us to present a self-service model with single sign-on, were other areas in which Elcom provided valuable support.
The Hub was launched and adoption was immediate, resulting in increased productivity and efficiencies for everyone. Admin are able to personalize the view for parents and students and send notices in an instance. Parents and students can now see their own calendar of activities and easily submit forms. Everyone can rely on the knowledge that the content on the Hub is always the most up-to-date version.
