TERMINALFOUR has announced that it has secured its tenth Canadian university client, completing a deal with the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland. This marks the 120th university client for TERMINALFOUR worldwide.
Canada has become a high growth market for TERMINALFOUR and higher education in particular has witnessed significant recent success with St. Mary’s University (Nova Scotia), University of Fraser Valley (British Columbia) and Algoma University (Ontario) all joining the TERMINALFOUR community.
TERMINALFOUR is en route to become the vendor of choice for the Canadian university market, mirroring its success in Ireland and the UK where it is the number one provider of web content management solutions to higher education. TERMINALFOUR now has 44 of the top 100 UK universities as clients.
Piero Tintori, CEO, TERMINALFOUR, explained, “We’re witnessing the Canadian higher education sector investing heavily in web transformation projects and this has created huge opportunities for TERMINALFOUR. There’s a real appetite for modern and progressive technologies, sector specific expertise and proven project success from an international perspective.
“We’ve been providing web content management solutions to the global higher education sector for more than a decade and this experience and insight is really helping us to gain traction in Canada. Our product roadmap has always been driven by our clients resulting in a WMCS built for higher education by higher education,” he continued.
The Fisheries and Marine Institute sought a Web Content Management Solution (WCMS) to enable it to manage its entire online world, and delivers a modern website that is responsive, interactive and ‘student and client centric’. With personalized content delivering a targeted homepage to individual visitors and the ability to provide more comprehensive and live content, the website has become a central communication, recruitment and engagement resource for the institute.
TERMINALFOUR’s flagship WCMS – TERMINALFOUR Site Manager – is an out-of-the-box solution custom built with higher education modules and features including course catalog and calendar. Its open platform and integration capabilities allow the institute to access, multipurpose and reuse content through its other systems e.g. student management systems. This allows the institute to leverage and maximize its entire content repository, in a timely and up-to-date fashion.
A key decision in the selection of TERMINALFOUR is the ability to easily integrate mobile websites. The institute can now publish content to multiple platforms including iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices, ensuring its many students and stakeholders can access all of the websites content no matter how they choose to view it.
Trevor Pike, manager, information and communications technologies, Fisheries and Marine Institute commented, “TERMINALFOUR has vast experience in the higher education sector around the world and its presentation and functionality were well ahead of anything else we saw. We also feel secure for the future with TERMINALFOUR’s Site Manager as we are getting a product that is very current and a company that is keeping pace with all new developments.”
