The Challenge

The University’s website was becoming cumbersome to use and navigate.

It began showing its age, resulting in usability issues.

The Solution

  • The customer approached MetaNXT to overhaul its website to create a visually rich, easy-to-navigate site that included a compelling, external-facing website and new intranet for staff, students, and alumni
  • Our team created a streamlined site that reflected the basic look and feel of the prior site. Then we included elements that made it much simpler for visitors to easily find information. A top-level global navigation bar quickly directs users to secondary sites for more detailed information.
  • We provided intranet community site that included the student population which led to much more interaction between students and alumni
  • Our Solution delivered key components related to University community as social forum module, events calendar, and registrations on the homepage, in addition to employee pages, and a policy management updates module

The Results

  • A visually rich site that makes it easy for prospective students to find information


  • Customer received a mobile-friendly, easy-to-use, intranet portal  that helped students connect with alumni
