SAI Redesigns and Launches New Website for Flagler College

New responsive site engages audiences with dynamic content while staying true to the Flagler brand

Hunt Valley, MD , 08/21/2014 -

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.”

More about the Flagler College redesign project is available on our website.

About Flagler College

Flagler College is an independent, four-year, comprehensive baccalaureate college located in St. Augustine, Fla. The college offers 29 majors, 34 minors and two pre-professional programs, the largest majors being business, education and communication. Small by intent, Flagler College has an enrollment of about 2,500 students, as well as a satellite campus at Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee, Fla. U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review regularly feature Flagler as a college that offers quality education at a relatively low cost. A Flagler education is less than half the cost of similar private colleges, and competitive with many state universities. A relatively young institution (founded in 1968), Flagler College is also noted for its historic beauty. The centerpiece of the campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a grand resort built in 1888 by Henry M. Flagler, industrialist, railroad pioneer and co-founder of Standard Oil. The Ponce has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. For more on Flagler College, visit www.flagler.edu.
