Benefits of Ensemble CMS

  • Ensemble CMS provides a user-friendly way to enter and update content, eliminating the burdening technical skills previously required to edit websites.
  • Ensemble CMS is a staged solution, allowing you to create and edit content in a secure location before publishing changes for everyone to see. Built-in workflow features also provide an approval process for changes, if needed.
  • Ensemble CMS is pre-loaded with university design templates, ensuring your site is accessible and usable by computers and other devices. Additionally, all future updates to the templates will be automatically applied to your site.
  • The tool is web-based and not dependent on software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage, which allows easy out-of-office updating of content.
  • Ensemble CMS offers expanded features like scheduled publishing, expiration of Web pages, and content sharing among university units.
  • Training courses are offered through the Faculty Development Institute.
