Today, Elcom, a leading Digital Experience Platform provider, is pleased to announce the successful relaunch of the St Augustine's College Kyabram's website. The new website, designed to showcase the school, its curriculum, and focus on student wellbeing, significantly enhances engagement with the local community and prospective families.
As a thriving and active institution with a well-established reputation and proud history, St Augustine’s College has always strived for excellence. However, the team found their clunky and outdated website did not reflect the values of the school and lacked the functionality necessary to re-engage users in the modern online world, where tasks such as student enrolments and event registrations are expected to be easily accessible. A school's website is often the first point of contact for prospective families and a new modern, engaging, and user-friendly website was needed.
Elcom, with their extensive school experience, was chosen as the ideal partner to deliver a comprehensive solution tailored to meet these needs. Linda Morris, Business Manager at St Augustine's College shared, “The initial engagement was very prompt and that continued throughout the project. Being in another state did not affect the project at all. Everything was done smoothly through online meetings, calls and the project tracker. The team were on hand to support us as if they were locally based. Training was brilliant because we have the recordings to refer to.”
"We found our Project Manager, the designers and Training Manager very accommodating," said Annie O'Connor, HR & Compliance at St Augustine’s College. "They were thinking about us as a customer and our needs, making sure that we were comfortable with what we were using. The Elcom team went beyond expectations to accommodate our needs and build the website that we wanted."
The new website, built on the Elcom Digital Experience Platform, vastly improves communication, strengthens the school’s brand image, and enhances engagement. It serves as a one-stop-shop, catering to the needs of current and prospective students and families, and potential employees.
The website boasts a range of features such as an easily navigable document library, search and reporting analytics and a mobile-friendly design. The platform’s user-friendly nature makes it easy to manage and update, with modules available for different uses.
The newly introduced online enrolment process has simplified procedures, saving significant time and effort. It enables fields to be mandatory, supporting documents to be uploaded, and forms to be digitally signed, thereby eliminating incomplete or incorrect submissions. A backend workflow ensures the application goes directly to the enrolment officer and allows easy tracking. Future plans include linking payment processes for even more convenience.
The website also features an events module, enabling the school to display, manage, and receive registrations for events.
"The partnership between St Augustine’s College and Elcom Technology demonstrates what can be achieved when innovation meets education. We are proud to see the Elcom Digital Experience Platform make a tangible difference in their educational approach and community engagement,” comments Josh Anstey, Customer Solutions Director at Elcom.
