The University of West London (UWL) is making a significant investment in its digital estate with the award of a contract for a major website redesign to full-service digital agency, CTI Digital, after a highly contested, multi-agency procurement process.
The project will include a discovery process, web development, hosting and support, and continual development and will deliver a superior digital platform and enhanced experience for all UWL website users. In an increasingly competitive higher education environment, CTI will play a key role in forming the long-term digital strategy of this prominent university.
Professor Anthony Woodman, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost for Health at the University of West London said:
“UWL places great importance on continuous investment in its facilities and infrastructure, and its website is no exception. We want to give our users a positive, useful and seamless web experience, and we have selected CTI Digital as our digital partner to deliver on this strategic and high value project for us.”
Paul Johnson, Drupal Director at CTI Digital said:
“We’re delighted to have been chosen to deliver a project of such immense strategic importance for such a forward –looking and ambitious organisation as the University of West London. Our team is highly motivated to deliver a market-leading digital platform, further enhancing UWL’s competitive edge in the national and global education marketplace.”
UWL was keen to select a digital partner with a proven track record of transformative change. The partnering companies will dedicate time to an in-depth discovery process, to highlight the best way to convey UWL’s proposition, before creating a full-scale development roadmap.
The new website will have a responsive, engaging and contemporary design that will appeal to all UWL website users. It will also include the delivery of a new content management system (CMS) through the open source software Drupal, containing the tools to give UWL site managers more creative control over future campaigns.
