Colorado Mesa University purchased their Cascade CMS license in May 2015 and engaged our Professional Services team in November with their responsive redesign materials. They purchased the discounted Quickstart Package, which is a 100 hour project specifically designed to help customers with a quick build-out of a portion of their site, as well as additional hours for extra features which are mentioned below.
After agreeing on the scope of the project and outlining how the content would be generated on each region of every page type, the Services team integrated Colorado Mesa’s home page, interior page types, a news section, a faculty directory, and a Calendar that generates information from a 3rd party application. As always, extensive content reuse was implemented, such as dynamic navigation, displaying the most current news articles on the home page, current features, and article indexes. In addition, Asset Factories were created to allow business users to create pages, images, thumbnails, re-usable content piece, etc. quickly.
After the integration had been completed, the project was demonstrated to the client, and documentation was provided. The project was completed within one month. Colorado Mesa’s web team was able to get their content migrated quickly and easily, using the Cascade Migration tool, and within a few weeks of the project's completion they went live.
