Systems Alliance, Inc. (SAI), a digital and IT consulting firm helping clients build, assess and optimize online properties, today announced the redesign of the Flagler College website. Located in historic St. Augustine, Florida, Flagler College is an independent, private four-year college offering nationally renowned and long-accredited programs.
Having worked with SAI previously to reinvent its web presence, Flagler reengaged SAI to support the next stage of its digital evolution. With the understanding that a web presence is ever changing, Flagler realized that the current site, which was last redesigned in 2010, was lacking developments in technology, like responsive web design, and increasingly popular digital trends in higher education. To better connect with key audiences, they sought to craft a new web presence that would unify the school’s online brand and captivate their audiences with dynamic content while presenting it in the best way possible.
Key goals of the new redesign included:
- A responsive design, delivering an optimal user experience
- A unified online brand that exemplifies Flagler’s character and cultural charm
- Dynamic content to capture the spirit and culture of the school, while connecting with prospective and current students
The redesigned site was built in the latest version of SAI’s flagship web content management system, SiteExecutive™ 2013 in order to leverage responsive design techniques. Deploying structured content for much of the design, Flagler is now able to create engaging, reusable content that highlights the best aspects of the Flagler experience.
“SAI designed a beautiful site that allows our community to become more engaged in the Flagler experience than ever before,” expressed Holly Hill, Director of Web and New Media Services at Flagler. “By providing better services through key elements such as a more dynamic calendar system and video/photography galleries, we are able to enhance the way visitors interact with our website and ultimately our College.”
