A unified web presence that's easy to use and maintain
Texas State University is one of the largest educational institutions in the United States, with more than 34,000 students from around the globe. The university is ranked among America’s Best Colleges, and is committed to public service as a resource for personal, educational and economic development. The university offers its students and staff extensive information and helpful materials through its website.
The university had invested in a proprietary CMS implementation to unify its web presence. However, two years later, the system had failed. The university implemented Magnolia for over 300 websites, allowing it to achieve a unified digital presence through a system that proved to be scalable, easy to use, and easy to maintain. What’s more: Magnolia helped Texas State University reduce its annual CMS costs.
We were initially attracted by Magnolia's rich out-of-the-box functionality and the ease with which it could be customized, but were also pleasantly surprised by its performance, which allowed us to use fewer server boxes and still have a more responsive system.
The operational benefits of Magnolia have been tremendous. Its focus on simplicity and ease of use has quickly won over our users as well. After using Magnolia for three years, we are still very happy with it.
