Wayne State College delivers ‘digital landscape’ with single digital portal for mobile and touch based user experience


October 21st 2015, Chicago, Illinois - Jadu, a leading global web experience management software company has announced that it has been selected by Nebraska based Wayne State College to deliver the Jadu Web Experience Platform for its online presence and digital service strategy.

Wayne State College is a four-year public college in the Nebraska State College System in Wayne, Nebraska, and this year, has been making investments in web experience technology to support its four schools: Arts and Humanities, Business and Technology, Education and Counseling, and Natural and Social Sciences with a commitment to meeting the needs of the modern student and how they interact with the college, on the devices they choose to use.

“Our goal from project inception was to select a product that would allow us to make real-time content decisions based on dynamic data elements.” Said John Dunning, CIO of Wayne State College.

“We evaluated a number of vendors, including the typical players in the higher education space, but Jadu was the only vendor who could bring that kind of technology to bear for Wayne State. While any project of this magnitude is challenging to implement, Jadu worked very closely with our team to create a web environment that will be the foundation of our electronic presence for years to come.”

Wayne State’s ‘digital landscape’ vision will provide its end-users a single point of access whether informational or transactional, looking for news or getting work done. The college wants its website to be able to get users to where they want to be and what they want to be doing.

The college\’s digital strategy is based on a need to create a user journey that focuses on key internal and external audiences including current and prospective undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff, and alumni, as well as prospective faculty and staff and members of the local community.

“We share a passion for innovation and student success,” said Suraj Kika, President and CEO at Jadu “We’re proud to partner with Wayne State College as its digital strategy evolves to shape itself around the digitally native student, faculty, community and the end-user experience.”

Wayne State College has completed its initial design and implementation phase of the Jadu Platform and has launched a new public facing website. The next steps include developing a new end-user portal inside of the platform and provide content dynamically based on the user\’s’ roles.

Last year, Dickinson College based in Carlisle, Pennsylvania announced that it had delivered a fully integrated student portal and mobile ready website using the Jadu Platform.
