INSEARCH Business Systems Manager
After extensive research, Elcom was chosen for its modular and feature-rich design, ease of use, architectural design and above all, ability to meet key requirements. Over the last few years, Elcom and INSEARCH have worked on a number of projects including:
In 2009, INSEARCH launched their new Elcom site. The solution removed all previous challenges and allowed them to concentrate on new online strategies; starting with delivering video content, such as recorded testimonials.
In 2012, as part of a greater marketing and re-branding exercise, the site underwent an entire overhaul. This included a fresh look and feel, improved navigation, social media integration and easy access to information such as brochures, publications, news, events and more. The site makes use of Elcom's document management, dynamic widgets, search and taxonomy features.
Managed as a Multi-site, INSEARCH’s Staff Intranet provides centralised access to information and updates. Through the Elcom Corporate Directory and Active Directory Modules, members can search for contact and department details. They also have access to news updates, support and HR information such as service desk links and pay roll information; and project management forms and templates – this information is managed through the use of Elcom's Dynamic Widgets. To enhance collaboration and communication, Forms are used to provide staff with the ability to submit questions to managers easily.
The Student Extranet provides students with personalised and secure access to their course details. The extranet is also managed as a Multi-site; and through the Elcom Developer API module, INSEARCH has created a custom student timetable which provides users with a view of all enrolled lectures and tutorials. The timetable is integrated with the central database for seamless data management. Google Maps has also been integrated to provide campus directions; social media to enhance their student community and implemented polls and surveys to gather feedback for the continuous improvement of processes.
As part of their international campaigns, INSEARCH also owns Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian multi-sites and mobile site. These are all managed through the Elcom Multi-lingual module.
