idp.com, Related Websites on Immediacy's WCMs Solution Launched

Immediacy and new client IDP Education announce the successful launch of www.idp.com and related websites on the Immediacy Web Content Management solution (WCMs). A global education company offering student placement services and English language testing, IDP runs thirty-two websites serving information to a network of offices in twenty-nine countries. With the intention of consolidating the costs, technologies and complexities of managing its global web presence, IDP has re-launched the websites with a single content management platform, Immediacy WCMs 6.0.

Supporting an aggressive growth strategy that aims to double revenue, IDP hopes to significantly improve the level of web transactions, whilst reducing costs associated with the administration of its thirty-two global websites. Previously maintained via either a Content Management Solution or by manual editing and facing a business objective to double site traffic from 1.5m visitors within two years, IDP recognized the necessity to consolidate its existing web technologies onto a single Web Content Management platform. Achieving cost savings by unifying the old technologies into one environment the new Immediacy Web Content Management solution (WCMs) 6.0 has facilitated centralized IT control by the web team whilst supporting the roll out of localized upkeep and day-to-day management to staff in IDP's network of local country offices. Chosen for its ease of use and cost saving potential, Immediacy WCMs incorporates the functionality to fully support IDP's twenty-four country specific websites in local languages including Mandarin, Indonesian, French, Dutch, Thai and English as well as its eight internal and external corporate websites.

In addition to financial savings from consolidation of technologies, speed of content delivery and the elimination of management and content duplications, IDP is anticipating that the greater ease of employees to manage more of the day to day upkeep of the websites without the need for technical assistance, Immediacy WCMs 6.0 will effectively enable the redeployment of a single full time support team member to a role requiring their skill set. The ease of use of the Immediacy interface should see significant reductions in the costs of ongoing training.
